National Splurge Day - June 18

submitted on June 14, 2014 by YanBz in "Member's Lounge"
Americans have a holiday for everything! Not sure what to make of this one. The idea of splurging all day long sends shivers down my frugal spine. Smile

Here is how to join the festivities according to the Holiday Insights:

treat yourself excessively, to anything you want. And, to excess if you desire. Isn't that a great thing? Maybe, you're on a diet, and that special dessert is too many calories. Maybe, you want to buy a steak, and the budget is a little tight. Toss out the reservations, and go for it today.

Have you heard of the day? Do you plan to celebrate? Please share in the comments.

    i love myself too much to limit myself to one splurge day a year.....i have multiple splurge days a year, depending on when i "need" them. Amused

    It sounds a bit contradictory, but this link offers 5 suggestions to "splurge on a budget" -
    even if you don't go overboard, you can still make yourself feel special and enjoy the day. http://www.wellingtonfranklin......lurge-day/

    I liked these -
    * Score a Groupon or LivingSocial deal to treat yourself for 50% off at a special place.
    * Buy sample sizes of gourmet cheese or chocolate.
    * Choose something the entire family would enjoy together.

    I got myself a Starbucks Groupon yesterday. I think I am going to splurge myself a tall latte. No, two tall lattes! Smile
