      i ordered from Fragrance.net for my son and husband for Christmas! VERY pleased with the prices. i got double the fragrance for my money on my sons Nautica, and better than that on my husbands Jovan Musk! (and never left the house!) Scha-weet!

    • Edp

      In the 11-21-10 ss there is a 15% off coupon code NVAM2 for FragranceNet.com and

    • Holly

      I “splurged” on 2 $5 clearance tops at Old Navy.com

    • Tori C

      I never splurge on anything for myself. But for xmas my husband surprised me with the Kitchenaid 600 Professional mixer that i have always wanted. He paid for it with mainly swagbucks(amazon.com credits).

    • sweetjodi

      I splurged on a CrockPot trio!

    • Susan

      My hubby got me some nice earrings for me for christmas, so that was the last splurge on me. I can't recall the last time that I splurged on anything .

    • liz

      The last time I splurged was a couple of weeks ago, Groupon had a deal on a massage. I can't remember the last time I did something like this for myself. Can't wait to use it!!!

    • my camera … dsl

    • Ajawee83

      Um, I can't remember. Lol.

    • Mrsstags

      Thank you for everything you do! These giveaways are such a nice extra to all of the money you already save us! I can't recall the last time I splurged on perfume.

    • Denise

      I just bought a beautiful mom's necklace with my two little children's birth stones and name on it!

    • Erin B

      My camera! Love it! <3

    • Jen

      Last time I splurged was when I got a nice new haircut and highlights.

    • Hintoncoupons

      Goodness. My husband and I had been so focused on buying our house that we haven't splurged in a while. However, it was my birthday last month and he took me to the Georgia Aquarium. Very simple and nice. I think that was the closet thing to a splurge…lol…considering our budget!

    • Robin Jared

      I can not even remember the last time I splurged on myself. Being a new grandma for the first time I do not think of myself

    • Jennifer

      The last time I splurged on something special was buying a plane ticket to go visit my mom for Mother's Day this year!

    • KelliB

      Friday Night Date Night…went to Starbucks:) Doesn't seem like a splurge, but these days, it is!

    • Michele

      Hmmm. Other than buying boots for Christmas, I can't remember the last time I splurged on anything.

    • Jebico

      It's sad, but I can remember the exact moment I splurged on something special for myself – it was my birthday six months ago and I paid for an hour massage!! I spend money on everyone else all year long, but I am trying to learn this year to love myself just as much!

    • Nessasstorm

      Last time i spurge was on a good undergarment. While there is nothing wrong with discount .. they simply dont last

    • Mdhill

      Splurged and bought my husband 3 new pairs of Rocksports for $30 a pair. But have not splurged on myself for quit sometime. I really don't remember when!

    • Carolina*** Girl

      About four or five years ago, I splurged on some Henri Bendel “Wild Fig” and that has been my last big splurge on fragrances!!!

    • Hackney

      About a month ago I splurged and bought a camo comforter set for my husband and sons for the hunting club, They were thrilled!

    • claudia

      My haircut….50$ is alot of money but its such an excellent cut!

    • Deonna

      My last splurge was for some new makeup.

    • Jen F.

      Buying hubby a new watch for his birthday.

    • Pam Young

      I cannot remember but love perfume.

    • I can't remember the last time I splurged on something for myself. Maybe about 2 months ago when I bought my Vera Bradley bookbag for school? Other than that, its hard to say.

    • P. Deegan

      It has been a while since I splurged on myself, but I think the last time I did was last summer, with a new dress to wear to a wedding. Perfume is high on my list, but usually something that is just not in the budget. Hopefully soon I will be able to check out this site.

    • mary

      perfume, awesome!!! i turned out like my mom because I always put me last and my husband and baby girl first. The last time I splurged on my self was April 2009 when i got married. I bought new clothes to meet the inlaws. I got a mani and pedi, new make-up, perfume and lotions. I since then have not really bout anything new for myself. I am almost out of the perfume and it would be an awesome present for me!!!!

    • Baileyclan4

      at Christmas

    • omslady

      My husband gave me a bottle of Obsession about six years ago. I recently threw the bottle away. So, I could not tell you when I have splurged on perfume.

    • Xawilsons

      I bought filet mignon to make at home a few days ago because my 6 yr old son requested steak for dinner! We had a little celebration of how good life is. It was fun!

    • Ronda Moon

      I bought a new shirt and a pair of jeans… both on clearance of course

    • Tngirl1955

      The last time I splurged I got a mani & pedi.

    • Tippetterica

      can't remember when!

    • Mom2teenagers

      I splurged on myself at Christmas and got a Clarisonic so I could do my own facials. Love it!!

    • Andie

      I have allotted in my budget just a little bit of money for something special at least every 2 weeks! It could be a new pair of shoes or shirt or skirt, I recently bought black boots! YAY I've been waiting for a good sale for months!:)

    • It's been a while but a few years back I had to have a pair of red heels from Sacks!

    • Elopez3080

      I splurged on myself on my birthday November 10th on a cut and color. It was way more than I wanted to spend but it looked great and te pampering at an Aveda salon is soooo worth it.

    • L Nord

      Hmmmm the last time…..I guess my haircut and color would have to count, so 2 weeks ago.

    • Mary S

      My husband and I implemented a monthly date night this year. We plan each month on the date 15th that we got married. That in itself is already indulgent. In January he took me for a glass of wine. How nice it would be to smell exceptional for our next monthly date. Mary S.

    • Wdstocksgal

      My sisters and I are close in age (only 2.5 years separate youngest to oldest). When the oldest turned 50 a few years ago we decided to splurge each year and take a trip together for each 50th birthday. So far there have been two celebrations and the third (and last) will be in March when the 3 of us go on a week long cruise to celebrate my 50th. Sisters are special!

    • Allyg24

      my husband splurged for me at christmas.

    • Bcogmom

      With 2 kids in college it's been 3 years at least since I've splurged and I couldn't tell you what it was on, but I am going to the Dansko outlet Friday for a new pair of shoes.

    • treyNkadesmom

      We splurged around Thanksgiving & bought a really nice camera so we can capture our son & the new baby on the way! It was well worth the money! pictures are priceless!

    • Mhattri

      when my 11 year old came home 2 weeks ago with a B+ on his math test. He has struggled all year and we had steak to celebrate the success

    • Afulkerson6

      The last time I have splurged on something special for myself has been about 2 years ago.

    • Cyndie_bates

      Last summer; CVS buy 1 get 1 half…then got the wrong one at 1/2!!

    • Jenku99

      I bought a french rolling pin from Sur La Table. I realize I didn't need one for every day use but I've always wanted one and it will certainly help make my pizzas tastier, I'm sure. ;)

    • jennifer p.

      I haven't splurged on myself in a while, but I did buy my family some steaks to grill for Valentines Day. We have a big family (6 kids) so steaks aren't a regular around here, but because of this website I knew they were on sale at Winn-Dixie last week. :-) (Thanks Southern Savers)

    • Emmacell0603

      I guess the last time i splurged was when I bought a 32 inch tv for our family after Christmas this year.

    • Tracey

      At the outlet stores nearby about 2 weeks ago. Found lots of good deals!

    • Dawn Hislop-Delieto

      The last time I splurged was about 7 months ago to furnish my new apt!!! I've been struggling ever since :p

    • Traciisom

      Last weekend I splurged by purchasing some new bath salts and and lotions.

    • Deninen

      The last time I splured on something specail was an ipod-touch for my hubby for Christmas…

    • Msplaced

      I bought some face primer the other day, so I consider that something I could have done with out. Time's are tough and I consider that my splurge :)

    • 2975d4

      It was last year, I purchased me a wonderful skin care.

    • Gstewart20

      We have been cutting back and cutting back and cutting back–well you get the point! :/ But last Sunday I woke my two boys and said–this is to remember dad, we are going out for breakfast and then we are going to actually waste gas and just go for a drive-all day till the tank is empty!! We had so much fun and the boys talked about 'Remember when Dad did, said, went, gave…..” it was the most wonderful and most deserved day ever!! Worth the splurge to remember old memories and to make new ones!! :)

    • Teresa

      My last splurge was on a Nikon D5000 camera!! I was tired of taking blurry or out of focus pictures of my children, so I jumped in with both feet and bought this “starter” D-SLR camera. My hope is to learn how to take really good photos of my family and friends and do a little of my own photo shop & photo development. So far so good!!

    • Kbelle_3

      My birthday was last week and I splurged on some new makeup.

    • keilah

      My only regular splurge is my hair so I guess that was my last splurge too. I get regular cuts and color but my hairdresser is fantastic and reasonably priced so it's not too bad!

    • Kelly H.

      My last splurge was on a Keurig coffee maker from Kohls. Even though I had a coupon, it was still about $100. I'm so glad I did though… I really enjoy having fresh coffee and tea whenever I want with no prep!!

    • MelissaC

      We splurged, spent a whole week's grocery bill, on one night's dinner. We have some friends that have done a lot to help us and wanted to show them how grateful we are to them.

    • Mstansilaus

      Nov 2008 before the depression set in. Need a new fragrance, as I am down to fumes on old ones I had.

    • Rerdmann2

      I really haven't splurged on just myself, but I love to get things for my girls.

    • Jennamreich

      Getting my hair done is considered a splurge for me, and I did that for my birthday in November.

    • Bmod26

      My last splurge was in November on a nice bra from Nordstrom. I love how they take the time to fit you and make sure you are wearing the right size!

    • Rudydoescakes

      I splurge on my kids. They got an awesome toy two weeks ago and they didn't really need it!

    • GaMedic

      its been about 5 years since I splurged for something nice for myself, because I live on a fixed income now and every little bit I have each month goes directly into paying monthly bills, there is not much leftover for nice fancy things for me, this is why im so grateful for extreme couponing, otherwise I just wouldnt be able to make it surviving on $600.00 a month.. yet at the same time im also very thankful because I know things could be much worse, others have no home or food to eat out there..

    • Mel

      Latest splurge? Hmmm… maybe the Lindor Truffles I bought a couple weeks ago. That's about the extent of it.

    • Beth

      Splurging for my family is rare…but we just had a great sirloin steak meal the other night that was soooo good!

    • Anissalb

      I splurged last night on new makeup and lotion.

    • I splurged on a HUGE bottle of Dermalogica face wash the other day…it was from the beautybar.com/gilt deal, so it was a steal…but I still consider it a splurge bc I could have done without

    • Lj

      Last May, we splurged for our anniversary. We went out to eat and ordered whatever we wanted. (we normally try to keep our bill at a minimum.) So this was a fun treat.

    • Callie

      The last thing that I really splurged on was a cruise- and that was 2 years ago!

    • Ginger

      My splurge was this past Christmas my son who is mildly Autistic loves music so I bought him a BIG Yamaha Keyboard. The look on his face was priceless and I became the best Mom ever at that point, according to him.

    • Cqueen

      My honey give me a Kindle for Christmas this past year. It is one of the best presents he has ever given me. I have been downloading the free book on Amazon but splurged and purchased two audio books to listen to while driving.

    • Julieannparsons7

      It has been months, but the last thing I splurged on was make-up. I did get myself a Starbucks coffee the other day….that was indulgence : )

    • Cosment

      I cannot remember the last time I splurged on something for myself.

    • Deena

      I splurged just recently and bought my first pair of Uggs using some giftcards I got from swagbucks!

    • Amndarussll

      Since I have had my DD I never splurge on anything special. And she is 3 :(!

    • NCcouponer

      The last time I splurged was for our honeymoon. We felt like it was something special and something well deserved!

    • Ncleslie

      My last splurge was on a book for myself a couple weeks ago – not a needed item, but a book I had been looking at for a while & decided to just go ahead & buy it.

    • Kristen

      The last time I splurged on something special was about 2 years ago (before my daughter was born).

    • Sheswaiting41963

      I am treating myself to a famn damily gathering in NashVagas !! it's my first trip to music city to visit with friends and check out some great music !! would be nice to smell pretty and everyone to be asking “what are you wearing, it smells sooo good “

    • Chuckandpam

      RIght before Christmas, I splurged on a big ticket item-A Keruig. I love it!!!!

    • DoniseW

      I splurged yesterday, for the first time in a couple months, and bought myself a new pair of shoes with a gift card I got for Christmas :)

    • Cdesilets

      I bought flavored lip glosses on 75% clearance last week.

    • Amandaleigh00

      How do we determine what “splurging” is? :) The last time I splurged on myself was in January when I bought myself a ticket to see a fabulous band, which I went to see last Friday. It was a blast! We need to always remember that splurging on ourselves every now and then is absolutely necessary!

    • Melissa

      I splurged at Bath and Body Works a couple weeks ago when they had their special going on with the free wrinkle cream with any Wexler purchase lol.

    • Jenny

      I splurged last night and bought me some new make-up and hair supplies.

    • Jenny

      The last time I splurged on something for myself was Black Friday.. I stood in line at Wal-Mart for hours for a very nice Nikon camera that I had been wanting..

    • Navens_nest

      I haven't splurged on myself since last year. I actually went out to eat by myself without the kids and hubby. I felt a little guilty but it was worth it for a little sanity.

    • Oglethorpe4

      It's been away…. I bought myself a pair of nice boots for the winter, Christmas of 2009.

    • cindy

      I can't remember. It would have to be exceptional before I would splurge.

    • Em_7984

      Splurging for me is getting myself a necessity rather than something that I just want! All my money goes towards my toddler and tween. I forget to get my self anything in the process. So, I guess my “Splurge” was a pair of shoes that I actually needed a couple of weeks ago, and they were $35…For me, that's a lot :/ Thanks for the chance :)

    • Tfrost99

      I splurged and got an i-phone for xmas. The plan is really cheap since it's with my brother's family plan and he gets an additional discount through his work! I love it. I actually don' t have any perfume and don't seem to know what kind to buy so I'd love to try this one out.

    • Browneyes0124

      The last time I splurged on something was last week when i got a gift card to the mall for my birthday and there were things I really NEEDED and have been putting off buying for myself but i dont have much jewelery and have been long admiring the beautiful neckalces and colors of jewlery i see other women wearing and i saw this necklace i kept eyeing and in a split second decided to get it instead! lol

    • Luffmank

      We bought a new iMac. Our old laptop was 8 years old and had been rebuilt. It was needed very badly, and I LOVE it!!!!! We bought it at the PX so it was discounted and tax free!

    • Emnajsmom

      I don't divulge too often, but it is my philosphy that I must sometimes “treat” myself in order to meet the ever so demanding needs of the household. I like to think of it as my little luxury. It can be something as small as taking an half-hour walk in the park while daddy has the kids. But we all deserve ME time. (As few and far between as it may be…)

    • I splurged on Friday- bought myself a new pair of boots and some new jeans from TJ Maxx :). Fortunately both were very good deals!

      Amy Lauren

    • wendyc33

      i try to make sure i splurge on myself at least once a week., but I think splurging on myself is taking time alone for a long bath or buying me a good book to read. This is something everyone needs to do to keep sane, and make yourself feel good about yourself. Thanks for the giveaway.

    • CSA

      Last spring. Bought a tv with my tax return. It is VERY rare that I buy anything for myself. I have 3 girls so all “extra” money goes for them.

    • Laura

      This past fall purchased a new road bike and boy do I love it. Worth every cent!

    • Anunair12

      i have been wanting a spa day forever. leaving my 4 year old with my husband I decided to get a massage , a facial , manicure and a pedicure! my big splurge! felt like a whole new woman…reday to being wife and mom again!

    • KristiR

      This past October (for my birthday) I bought myself the Clinique makeup with 6 free gifts that was offered with free shipping and rebate thru eBates. Does that count even thought I got a good deal? :-)

    • BT

      I love perfume but never buy it for myself. Can't remember the last time I splurged

    • holly

      I've been wanting a new bed set since we've been married, I dear, sweet lady made us a beautiful quilt for our wedding, we've been using it for 8 years, but its really not our style, so for my birthday I got a new bed-in-a bag set that I love! the quilt matches it so I can still incorporate it in the room!

    • Carolrpayne

      I splurged on a sewing machine that I didn't really need, but really wanted!

    • Susupurple

      I recently splurged and had a pedicure, only the second one in my life. Quite a splurge.

    • Lindsayfauver

      I splurged on a winter pedicure the other day with my little sister. It was ridiculous but my feet feel SO good now! Not to mention, they look cute for when I'm walking around the house!

    • Kitmarlowescot2

      I splurged on my last birthdy with a pedicure.

    • amy

      I spurlged on pretty new bedding, it's totally brightened up my room!

    • Megan

      My most recent 'splurge' was deciding to buy my husband and I season passes to Disney World. We finally figured that if we live this close to Disney, we should take advantage of it for once!

      • Superjen

        I would do that too, if I lived closer to Disney. That's a great splurge, there is plenty to do in there and as long as you bring your lunch it's not expensive.

    • Kristi

      I cant even remember the last time I splurged on something for myself..maybe last summer when I did treat myself to a pedicure!!!

    • Kfalconberry

      I don't know that I remember the last time I slpurged for me. Perfume is something I never buy because of the cost, but it would be so nice to have something new.

    • Superlola1234

      I am changing jobs which include relocating from VA to OH and planning for a July wedding, so there are more splurges for me for awhile. The last thing I did was a facial for myself to prep my skin for the wedding.. I hope it last 7 months!

    • Mhedens

      my last birthday, i treated myself to a massage

    • redteapot

      I am about to splurge on a new look. Highlights in my hair, maybe a whole new cut too. :)

    • Towersmommy

      About to splurge on some HairFlairs! They look like so much fun and totally out of my normal routine…I also love it when my husb. breathes my perfumed neck. I'm hoping to win something new and surprise him!

    • Kim G

      Ha! Money has been so tight, I can't remember the last time I splurged on something. Dislike :( Lol.

    • Pkdijkstra

      The last time I splurged on something was two years ago when I planned a Disney vacation for our family. I still looked for the best deals and conducted surveys to help save money.

    • guest

      Last time I splurged was Christmas shopping for the family (and myself!)

    • Shacklefordj

      I know it may sound unbelievable but I haven't bought myself perfume in at least 10 years. Yikes.

    • Superjen

      The last splurge I had was the day after Christmas, my daughter and I got buy one get one free wrapped gifts at Lush – I love their soaps but they are not cheap!

      • Amandaleigh00

        Looooooove LUSH!

    • Lojsmith

      Money has been so tight lately that a splurge is out of the question. A splurge is having enough coupons to a get bottle of Oil of Olay body wash for a dollar. The last bottle of perfume, a massage, a pedicure…was all over 5 years ago. A new bottle of perfume would be wonderful.

    • Theaikenparrs

      I love perfume and wear it daily–and the last time I splurged on myself was about month ago at the hair salon. I got highlights, lowlights and a LOT of hair cut off!! I am SO glad I did it–and wish I hadn't waited so long to take the plunge.

    • Sarah Lin

      my husband and i are seminary students, so it's been so long since we last splurged!

    • Jodidf

      I would love to win a bottle of Exceptional..Because You Are! I am almost out of my bottle of perfume and I am looking for a new scent. I never splurge for myself all my extra cash goes towards my children.

    • Burke2010

      I bought a new pair of tennis shoes a few weeks ago. It helps the “guilt factor” that I also wear them at work. :-)

    • merry

      last time i splurged was on someone else… but I think the last time on me was….. fabric to make maternity clothes! lol!

    • couponmom

      After being widowed for 4 years, I finally worked up the courage to take off my wedding rings about a year ago. But after having worn them for 31 years, my hand felt bare so I splurged and bought a mother's ring with the birthstones of my 5 children.

    • Erin T

      I splurged by going on a shopping spree after my baby was born!

    • Melissam

      Hmmm well, I splurged on a vintage beaded dress for my wedding dress…bought it less than a month ago!

    • BecP

      The last time I splurged was almost a year ago for my anniversary. I purchased a flight lesson for my husband to enjoy while I rode in the back for dear life!! ;) Then I reserved a nice king suite on Riverstreet and we went out to eat and had drinks. We never get out and do anything and this was a NICE change!

    • Sarah

      I just splurged on a new phone this weekend…but I love it!

    • Cathy

      2010 was a tight year for many people and I fell into that category so splurging was out of the question. Only the necessities and the coupons provided here were a blessing.

    • Kelli

      I just splurged last week and bought myself the Mary Kay Microdermabrasion set! And, being the budget concious mom that I am, I didn't buy it from my rep…I found a last minute auction on ebay and won it with 4 minutes to spare for $28! Plus, I paid with bill me later that gave me $10 back, so I got it for 60+% off!! So, I splurged with my coupon mind working!

    • Aja

      Last September on my wedding…still paying for it:)

    • Michelle K

      Around Christmastime

    • Mandy

      It's been a long time…so long I don't even remember. I was laid off last summer so it was definitely before then because since then money has been super tight.

    • Kcgardner

      It does feel sooo good when you splurge on a special item! My last was for Christmas when my husband splurged for a new smoothetop stove for me! He feels that his job might be in jeapordy and wanted to use his bonus to buy me a stove just in case is was his last bonus! SWEET!

    • Debhawie

      My husband and I splurged last week and went on an out of town date (w/out children) for his birthday. It was wonderful!!

    • KC

      The last time I splurged on something special was buying a whole new outfit for my husband's birthday (which was Halloween) because he NEVER gets new clothes and he was feeling “out of date.” So with coupon in hand I headed out and found him new pants, shirt, vest and even was able to get him new shoes!!

    • sandra

      My big splurge is my monthly pedicure. I am hooked!

    • Carolinagirl_14

      The last time I splurged was when my girlfriend and I went out to a really nice restaurant and finally had some nice girl time, it was very much needed!

    • sunset

      The last time I spluged on something special was about 2 years ago on my birthday I bought an expensive purse and I still carry it everyday. I probably will use it forever considering how much I paid for it.

    • Pamela M.

      I bought myself a new dress a couple of months ago. Other than that, nothing splurge-like. :)

    • Jerry Willis9

      I actually took myself to Outback Steakhouse; hadn't been there in over four years due to unemployment. The only reason I got to go on this occasion because I received an AE gift card at Christmas.

    • Sandy565

      I took a spa day for myself last year! It was wonderful!

    • I got new PJs a bit aggro! Not much but I needed them!

      I bought myself and ipod touch last year

    • sherry

      I splurged on a pair of UGG boots for Christmas and although the price nearly took my breath away I love my boots and glad DH insisted I get them.

    • Live4eternity

      The last time I splurged was just the other day when I found some old children's books I'd been looking for for years! I actually don't own any “real” perfumes (just body sprays) so maybe one day I'll splurge on one of those. :-)

    • Akegoheels

      I can't remember the last time I splurged on myself, so if I win this giveaway I make my vow to splurge.

    • Jgleddon

      My husband and I splurged on a short overnight holiday trip to Callaway Gardens for the Christmas lights and Pine Mountain, Georgia for a beautiful scenic drive…awesome!

    • blaire

      i got my nail done the day before my daughter was born. she is almost 7 months now.

    • In October I splurged on a nice red coat. It had been quite a while since I splurged on something for me instead of on the kids or my husband.

    • Kris

      The year or two have been really tight around my house. Splurging isn't really an option. I have 4 kids and they always come first. I love perfume but it isn't a neccessity so I never get it. I would love to win a bottle.

    • Hannah

      The last thing I splurged on something was a new board game for me and my hubby to play.

    • C Taylor

      Back in June! Cruise for our 1st wedding anniversary

      After Christmas… I bought 8 of my favorite body wash from Bath and Body Works. Had a gift card. :)

    • keri

      I don't recall the last time I really splurged on myself. I'd say it must be about time to do so! :)

    • Amelvincare

      Not sure… I would love too though!

    • Amanda Biel

    • Maryme107

      The last time I splurged on something special was a few weeks ago when I got my hair cut. I consider this a splurge since I only get it cut twice a year!

    • Danielle

      I splurged on my birthday last month. A few of the stores on Disney property sell Disney Dooney and Bourke handbags. I was able to get mine for 50% off! Even though I splurged, I still received a great deal on a fabulous purse!

    • Katy Robinson

      The last time I splurged on something special was in October – it was a BREAST PUMP! I was nine months pregnant and needed a new one after my fist baby wore my old one out! My husband told me to remember this “splurge” come Valentine's day! Haha!! – Katy Robinson

      Christmas, a new purse

    • AJ47

      My mother-in-law's birthday, we went out to buy her a perfume and it was buy one get one 1/2 off. So I coulden't resist the temptation of buying another one, I ended up leaving with 2 fragrances.

    • Becky

      On myself? About 16 months ago. I don't spend much on myself.

    • Jmholley

      I don't remember, I bought some clothes for myself, but it was with gift cards I recieved for Christmas, otherwise from that, I do not splurge on myself! Unless a haircut counts!!!

    • clt3mom

      I don't usually spend much on myself, I like to use my money for my kids! My husband did get me something nice for xmas.

    • Sheila

      I have not bought myself new purfume in probably 2 yrs…i have purchased Dolce And Gabbana Light Blue for my husband. I have just been using Bath & Body Works body splashes. So, I would greatly enjoy some purfume for a change.

      Had to think awhile on this one! Sad to say the last thing I remember “splurging” on was some $10 Gruyere Cheese at the grocery store!

    • Heaps Amy

      Well, I have to admit, it was a few weeks ago when you posted about the Great deal on Crocs. Saved nearly 70% and free shipping. Thanks, Jenny!!

    • Debnsc1971

      I honestly can't remember the last time I splurged on something for myself. I am a thrift store shopper for myself and tend to splurge more on my son's things….since they do cost more!

    • Couponkaylawhitt

      splurged and bought myself a new white coat – on sale though, of course :)

    • carrie

      My last big splurge for myself was 2-3 years ago when I bought Gwen Stefani's perfume, Lamb. But thanks to coupons and this blog, I do small splurges frequently. The last one was getting Peanut Butter MMs for $.75 per bag.

    • Laduegang

      Splurge on myself–what's that??? I think it has been years.

    • Regan

      Christmas,for others!!

    • Justice

      This past Christmas my company gave me a $200 gift card to an area boutique. I thought about all the mani/pedi's I would schedule thoughtout the year then I walked into the store. I have NEVER bought perfume— always relying on what my teenage kids pick up from the drug store with $20. I sniffed around like a dog in heat until I stumbled upon something they called—– Chanel. OMG!! I couldn't believe I've never had to sense to ask for this for Christmas. Anyway, I bought it. OMG!! it was expensive, but the gift card covered it, with enough left over to get a manicure. It was so expensive and they wrapped it so pretty in the black Chanel bag with a black bow, I haven't had the heart to unwrap it. So much for a year's worth of mani/pedi's. But it was worth it!!

    • nc_sunshine

      Wow… last time I splurged on something was maybe a multi-ticket pass for my husband & me to UNCG's theater season back in Sept, so that we have SOME cultural date-nights set…? Yah, it's been a while…!!

    • Susan

      I think a Chick-fil-a sandwich is a fun splurge and so my last one was last week! I would love to try this perfume!

    • Teresa

      I splurged on a myself and I bought me a nice purse right after Thanksgiving… I was thankful because I was giving (my money to a good cause… cause I wanted a purse) !!!!

      i got a pedicure 2 weeks ago that i really couldnt fit into my budget but i splurged and made it work

    • Kylie

      Usually when I splurge, it's for something practical… like $4 organic cereal! I think my latest splurge was root beer from the health food store. :)

    • Tambam

      My splurges are always for my family. Right now, we are planning a wedding so all my splurging is on the wedding for my daughter.

    • Nike

      Buying family Christmas gifts!

    • Janelle

      I haven't bought perfume in about 3 years! I haven't splurged on much lately…..last Christmas I bought some Calphalon skillets for myself that went on sale at Kohls if you call that splurging on myself…lol

    • larhea80

      I would love this fragrance! I havn't bought any perfune in over 5 years because its so expensive! The last splurging I did was for my husband and my daughter for christmas.

    • Wendy Lett

      My splurging is usually for my 2 year old little boy so I can't remember the last time I splurged for myself!!

    • gwilly08

      I bought myself a spa gift certificate for a massage. Soon after, I found out that I was pregnant and realized that l have to wait until after my first trimester to use it. I splurged on something special for myself, but the really special gift will be arriving in 7 months :)

    • Penrose33

      Do kitchen tools count as a splurge? I bought some spoons and a strainer with my $20 amazon certificate I got for $10. If not, I don't even know.

    • Lynda Tompkins

      Well I had surgery right two weeks before Christmas and I had done most of my shopping which included cologhe for my two sons and my hubby. I so needed some but knew my surgery would be expensive and leave me homebound for a bit, so no smell good for me. I did not get any as a gift either. I will be able to return to work on the 14th of Feb, what a nice gift treat this would be!

    • Couponcrazeemom73

      Last week- a manicure and a pedicure-without the kids! That's a splurge

    • L Sherrill

      In Cozumel my husband splurged and bought me a pair of cowboy boots that are to die for…..i would never ever spend that kind of money on a pair of boots………. he did talk them down and used the money he won at the casino:)

    • Jacobcarrigan

      Polo blue! $80 bucks…

    • Lisa

      My last splurge was joining Weight Watchers and paying for a 10 week plan up front.

    • CVS Lady

      Last weekend I had a pedicure :)

    • Beth

      My husband and I splurged on a one night Babymoon at The Old Edwards Inn. It was a good thing, since our daughter came a month early!

    • sarahcas

      Shortly before Christmas, I got a full body massage (although it was at a massage school which made it much cheaper). It was definitely worth it!

    • Andrea Watts

      Saturday when I bought some laughing cow cheese with a coupon. How sad when I consider that a splurge lol!

    • Frommyhome2yours

      My husband finally got moved into a daytime hours job at work this past November that required him to get some new work clothes. Even though our budget is tight, I got creative and came up with the funds to splurge on HIM for Christmas and bought him some very nice new work clothes from Jos. A Bank. It felt SO good to do that for him!

    • Sarah Ann

      The last splurge I had was my husband let me buy something from Soma. I was down to one of those “somethings” and was in desperate need. I kept the tag on it for two weeks because I spent so much money on it that I had a hard time thinking that was worth it. It was, but as all of us mothers can relate…it is hard to spend money on ourselves.

    • MomofEE&I

      Starbucks – a couple of weeks ago…..yummy!

    • Mommysauls

      last time i splurged it was when i was prego with my 5 month old and decided to get my hair cut ! lol but my babygirl always will come first :)

    • momof2boys

      Around the first of January. Victoria's Secret was having the Semi-Annual Sale, so I bought $300 in clothing and fragrances, for just over $100!

    • Towanac

      sorry about 5 yrs ago on free v secret panties free coupon came in mail ha ha

    • Melissa S.

      Around Christmas I ordered some lotion and body wash from the Body Shop just for me!

    • Kristisdeals

      I LOVE Calamata Greek Olives but they are not in the grocery budget….expensive, never a sale OR a coupon. Money has been pretty tight lately but I had enough for a pretty good grocery trip and got some really good deals. My hubby saw me looking at the olives and said “Go for it honey…you deserve a splurge”. I would have talked myself out of it and I know it wasn't a very big splurge…but it felt good!

    • Kristi

      I'm a mom of 2 so, rarely ever “Splurge” now LOL but I did purchase $25 worth of clothing from NY and Co with my “Christmas” gift card BUT, waited for a coupon to come out to actually get $75 for a little of $25, not bad on clothing! :)

    • Rawhorne

      I bought myself some clothes for my birthday. I got a sweater, shirt, skirt, and jeans at Peebles for $32. Still a splurge for me.

    • Beccaloc

      I splurged on a cedar chest for my mom for Christmas. We don't usually give 'big' gifts but she let it slip that she had wanted one since she was a little girl (she is 81, now!) Gave me more joy than her, I think…lol.

    • My splurge only plunge is my once a month Starbucks!

    • Amy W.

      I bought a blouse at full price around Christmas that was'nt on sale. I was with my Mom and she talked me into it!

    • staj0805

      I actually splurged on some new lingerie a couple of weekends ago.

    • Mary

      I don't know when the last time was that I splurged…I did buy a book when CBD had they're $1 sale earlier… ;) Would love some good smelling perfume..I ran out several months ago and haven't been able to afford any…

    • Chelley

      I bought a pair of red sandals with Swarovski crystals ~ they are fabulous!!

    • Rwilson

      I love perfume, but like many of you here, I don't often buy it b/c I have a hard time spending extra money on myself when I have a family of four living on one income to think about. So the last time I splurged on something for me, was probably, this Christmas when I got myself the Cricut Expression.

    • Mrsbeckybean

      I sometimes splurge on clothes at White House Black Market! Love them! The sale rack is even splurging though!!

    • Jannamccoppin

      I splurged on a new purse this weekend at the Coach outlet, I still shopped the clearance rack though lol.

      I splurge on my children more so than myself. So, I can't remember when I did so.

    • Mariannewhit

      I can't even remember …

    • Sspragis

      I have not “slurged” on something special just for me in over a year now. The kids and bill collectors get all the extra $$! : )

    • amy

      I bought myself a coat after christmas, that was my splurge. However, I still got it on sale and had watched it go from $135 to $45 dollars!

    • Rstorey5

      I rarely splurge on myself but when I do its something simple. At Christmas time I bought myself a bottle of perfume that was marked down 75% off. It cost me 4.80 and I was worth it. It smells nice.

    • I helped my son Jeffrey buy a dog that he had been wanting for a very very long time…and the best thing is, when he works double shifts over the weekend, our youngest daughter Eliza and I get to “babysit” our little Ruby. She's the greatest
      and brings us all so much happiness.

    • Struckdeals

      I splurged and bought an ice cream maker at Christmas. No matter how cold it is, ice cream is always a perfect snack.

      Does underwear count? When you have a child with special needs, splurging just isn't an option.

      My current (and biggest ever) splurge is a trip to Europe this summer to take classes at Université de Paris, and there's no way I could afford the trip if it weren't for my coupon savings!

    • Stephanie

      I splurged on Black Friday… got some christmas shopping done as well as some birthday shopping and some some things for around the house! Was a major “shopping” fix. :)

      I rarely splurge, because we are saving for grad. school, but I guess our latest was several trips this past summer for weddings to parts of the USA we'd never been to….we made some great memories!

    • Hemlock07

      My daughter decided to get married in Jamaica, I had'nt planned on going and decided the last minute I'd probably one day regret it! I'm so glad I did because I now have wonderful memories of a wonderful trip that I'll never forget!

    • Susan

      My husband surprised me with money for splurging on clothes with a personal shopper friend. What a treat!

    • moneysavingmommy

      I splurged on getting my hair highlighted for the first time. I was always afraid to start, because I was afraid of the cost of the upkeep. In October my fourth baby was born and I had gained a bit of weight. Soo I thought it was the perfect time to go ahead and do something with my hair- Great thing about it- for a hair cut and hightlights- $43!!!!

    • Themimb

      Hmmm – I really don't 'splurge' anymore. Between Dave Ramsey and Jenny, I've had a complete behavior change! But I guess that the only thing I spend most money on is my haircut and I get it done every 8 weeks or so.

    • Sheila

      2009 right after christmas a bottle of calvin klein eternity a whopping 94.00

      I got a gift certificate for a manicure this Christmas from my husband! I've been carrying it around in my purse, just waiting for some alone time to use it (I have a 20 month old!) However, I'm 8 months pregnant with our second child, and I am going to ask them to switch a mani for a pedi, as I can no longer reach my toes :) So, this is a “pending” splurge!!

    • Carol

      I splurged on a cupcake yesterday at a cute cupcake shop!

    • Daystargirl

      I splurged just this last week on a “brand new” outfit (that wasn't from the thrift store!!). It was all on clearance too! (except for the boots which were $20 at TJ Maxx!!!) Nice to have something that starts as my own! :)

    • Katrina

      my brown boots this winter ….

    • msbos

      The last time I splurged on something for me was last summer when I had a pedicure! With 3 small kids it hard to find the time for splurging on “mommy” =)

    • I splurged on a new bed spread for my niece recently. With all my coupon-ing and budgeting, I could afford to buy her the one she has been wanting.

    • Amanda

      A while! I have 4 young children and its hard to find the time! :)

    • Wow….hard question! I think about a year ago when I got my hair cut. I went to a relatively inexpensive salon, but still a nice splurge from my usual SuperCuts haircut! :)

    • HollySharp

      Last fall I bought a “not-on-sale” outfit for our big fundraising banquet … it was really exciting!

    • Michelle

      I went to lunch and had a manicure with a long-time friend over the Christmas break. We topped it off with Starbucks after our manicures. It was such a nice break from my “homeschooling four little ones” routine.

    • Mommyking

      i splurged on my mom's Christmas gift b/c I knew it was something she really wanted.

    • Melirish

      A few months ago I got a pedicure. It was fantastic =)

    • Lindas

      the last time i splurged was last week. my daughter wanted some Angel prefume for Christmas but i wasn't able to afford it at that time and I found some at a drug store for buy one get one half price. would love to get her some extra. linda s.

    • momx4

      My youngest of four children had never flown and always wanted to. So, when I saw flights to Nashville for $29 per person I decided my 10 year old and I would take a trip for the weekend. It was PERFECT! She loved it and we made lots of memories.

    • Rebecca

      Last week on a new blouse.

    • Debbie

      I don't think I have splurged on myself since I had my children and now that they are grown I still don't because of my children.

    • Sharrywt

      I like most posting have a small child and do most of my splurging on him. But I did get my hair colored and cut a few months ago. Needs to be done again, but will have to wait.

    • Sammygsu

      New Years my husband and I had a night alone without the 3 kids 5 and under- we splurged on a nice bottle of wine!

    • Carrie Smart

      Wow the last time I splurged on myself would have to be before my daughter was born back in 2007

    • Blinzi

      I splurged on a massage for my birthday last year.

    • JJ

      When my son was first born in 2009, I splurged on nursing bras…I could've easily gotten a $20 but wouldn't have been happy w/ it but I got one that had great reviews & cost $50…but it was a great splurge because I breastfed for the whole year & I think comfortable nursing bras were in part to thank.

    • Lindsay

      That's a tough one! I don't splurge too much, but I did just go to the movies with a girlfriend!

    • Jessica

      I splurged on a pair of boots last month!

    • momoboys

      I splurged on some doritos to help me get through my winter blues!

    • Jamiew82

    • Rowell123

      Last splurge was SHOES – gotta love em

    • Ale

      I splurged on facial mask that I wanted so bad.

    • Ajoyhw32

      We can't afford anything big, so I indulge in yummy food when possible. WholeFruit Sorbert was on sale just the other week. MMMmmmmm.



    • Pam Strieter

      I splurged on a new haircut 2 weeks ago! That always makes me feel better!

    • Nursejek

      probably last year when i got my taxes back the rest of the year is for the kids

    • Brittshields09

      I bought my husband a watch from Fossil for around a 100 bucks(that is a splurge for us.) I knew he would never spend that much on himself! He is VERY pratical.

    • Papes330

      Oh my! I can't remember the last time I splurged on something! It would have to be something I bought for our 15 month old, I am sure!!!

    • Michelle

      I splurge on shoes way too often.

    • Lwatts17

      I splurge on extra products for my business.

    • Sondra Gaddy

      Being a 1-income family, I am a very frugal person; “hubby brings it in, I let it go out as slooowly as possible”. For this reason, I rarely ever spend anything on myself. I really can't even remember the last time I did spend money on something just for me. I do love nice things, but can always find something for someone else when there is extra.

    • Robin

      I dont think I have splurged in a long time with being a single mom of 3 kids. So it would be nice to win something for me!

    • JennStar

      I splurged on an iced coffee today- splurging both to pay for it and to enjoy the calories the half and half and sugar provided! ;o)

    • Crissy

      It has been a while since I splurged on myself. My husband has been laid off from work. It was on my last birthday with gift cards given to me. Wow, it's been a long year.

    • Nikkipel

      A couple of weeks ago when DH and I went away w/out the kids…a new pandora charm.

    • Waitingforryder

      After growing up on a farm, I have been in apartments or subdivisions since graduating college. With my Christmas money this year, I started looking into taking dressage or huntseat jumping horseback lessons. I'm waiting to hear back from a couple of teachers, and have even found a couple of friends to take lessons with me. My son is 3, so I know before long, all lessons will be for him. I can't get over feeling guilty about spending money on something so not practical and all for me, but I am excited.

    • Melissa

      It had been a while since I really splurged since we are working on paying off all our bills, but Saturday we splurged on a REALLY expensive restaurant for a friends birthday party.

    • Let's see…my husband “splurged” and bought me a 1hour massage gift certificate off of Groupon a couple of months ago..does that count? Sadly, I haven't gotten around to using it yet!

    • Rachel O.

      My boyfriend splurged when we went to the mall about a month ago and bought me a “Dead Sea” nail kit. It was pricey but works wonders… I'm thinking it will save me by having to get less manicures (not that I got many before). My latest splurge was today at Target… they had candles 75% off so I bought 3!

    • Chelle2377

      A matching bra and undie

    • rosenjeni

      I went & got my FREE panties at Victoria's Secret! That always FEELS like a splurge, but really isn't. LOVE IT!!!

    • LilNavyWife

      I'm not sure if this is what your mean by “special”, but my husband and I splurged on new windows to replace the 90 year old ones in our house this winter! :) haha

    • Sherra3047

      I really dont know when the last time i splurged was. ummm had to be first of the year when I got my hair done…

    • Elizabethrichardson0

    • Missy

      Hmmm…that's tough. I felt like I splurged last week when my oven broke and I had to buy a new one – gotta cook!

    • Meggo214

      my husband and i spent a much needed vacation over Christmas. First time we have been alone since our 2 year old was born.

    • Carmen

      the last time I splurged on something special was taking a wedding anniversary trip last Nov to San Juan, Puerto Rico for a week. We ate delicious food, tanned on the beach, went shopping at the outlet mall and went to the rainforest. It was the most fun vacation my husband and I have had!

    • Chapman525

      The last time I splurged on something special was when i bought my daughter perfume for Christmas.

    • Chiefsangeleyes

      My last splurge was on perfume..Clinique Happy.!

    • Gomercoupons

      Last splurge was a year ago in March while in Gatlinburg. My husband bought a Vera Bradley purse for me taht was on sale. With five kids I don't do a lot of splurging. =oP

    • Meldgrek

      Hmmm… well it had been a while since I had an opportunity to splurge on something for myself but i decided that this year not ALL my Christmas money I received was going to bills or my 5 year old daughter. Just a couple of weeks ago I went to a COACH outlet and SPLURGED on a wonderful black handbag! It is practical and cute and I will hopefully not need a new one for a long time.

    • Niecy

      The last time I splurged on something was in November for my 5th wedding anniversary. My husband and I had been wanting a big flat screen tv for the living room, but it wasn't in our budget so we decided that instead of spending money on a trip or something we'd buy ourselves a tv for our anniversary. Two weeks ago our home was broken into and the tv was stolen :( We enjoyed it while we had it!

    • Brinry

      I splurged on myself the day after X-mas and bought several bottles of perfume. I love fragrances and would love a new one!

    • Crystal

      I don't splurge on myself very often. I think it is more fun to splurge on my family and friends. This past weekend I bought my mom a new purse because she is always doing nice things for me. Pay it forward…..it is a great feeling. :)

    • Donna C

      This summer I splurged on new carpet now i know it may not sound like it was for me but it was I have wanted to do that for the last 10 years and finally was able to and it has made a huge difference to us we enjoy it every evening :)

    • Kathyneff

      The last time I splurged on something special…… I bought a Wet Vac ! Does that count?

      The last time we splurged on something was for our honeymoon last year when we got married and went to Universal Studios.

    • julesscbeach

      For my son's bday next week. I don't think I have ever bought myself any perfume and would love, love to receive this special gift! :)

    • Tinker1206

      I purchased some new clothes last week due to losing 50lbs and would love to have some new perfume to make me feel special.

    • Jessica

      I splurgedon a new pair of jeans a few weeks ago. It was time since the last time I bought jeans was 3 years ago when my son was born.

    • Lelanirogers

      OMG!… the last time I splurged on something special like perfume was about 5 years ago. It was Ralph Lauren Romance, one of my favorites and I got it at a steal of a deal on Ebay! Woohoo!

    • Busterbird

      My latest special splurge for me was over the holidays when Russel Stovers boxed candy was BOGOF at Krogers and I had two coupons.

    • Amymchone

      I splurged on my husband several weeks ago. His birthday is 2-15 and of course valentines day. We did not get to get each other anything for Christmas. So I got a bottle of cologne from this vendor fragrance.com because its the only place to find the David ? (Zinohoff- not spelled correct) Any way he really like this cologne so that is what he is getting for his birthday/Valentines.

    • Dawn in FL

      The last thing I can remember is getting a new outfit for a Christmas get together. I actually bought something at full price, it wasn't on sale!

    • Hooks party of 6

      I do not know about anyone but the thought of some smells would be awesome plus my 6 year old daughter loves smells too. Sometimes its something that smells great that can change someones day. I had bought my small kids some spray at Bath and body works for christmas thanks to the B1G1 deal. But…. as a mom of four getting something for myself is not always in the budget so the chances of winning some smells makes me SMILE! :)

    • Jru927

      My girlfriends and I need a “girl's night out”. I decided I needed a night for me, so I spurlged on some good food at a costly restaurant.

    • Pattiandcarey

      the last time I splurged on something special was christmas and I was telling myself I need a certain type of boot/ well/ I found them/ a very good price and when I got home w/ them I could not remember why I had to have them/ so that was a splurge and I kept them/ now I will have them forever and ever.

    • Kathy D

      Would love to win this. Last time I splurged on me was getting my hair done last week with the change from the change jar. Before that… a long time.

    • mommyof2

      Last time I splurged on something was last year on a mission trip to Haiti after the earthquake!

    • Autball

      This would be so great to win, I've had the same $16 gap fragrance for 4 years (it was a big bottle)!
      I can not remember tha last time I splurged, I get so many nice things from Southern savers that I normally would not be able to buy! I am constantly having the internal conversation “Do I need this, is it practical, can I afford it……”

    • Joanna

      The last time I splurged on something would probably be when my husband and I went on our honeymoon last summer :-) It wasn't the cheapest trip, but it wasn't the most expensive in the world… it was definitely the best though! :-)

    • Would love to win this, as I can't remember the last time I splurged on myself!

    • Jodi Maria

      I just bought myself the new GLEE dvds.

    • Sweetk3346

      I spluged $100 on a full outfit last month.

    • Dgb1219

      I splurged in the summer of 2010 on a manicure and a pedicure. It was so nice to do something for me!

    • susiela

      I can't even remember the last time I bought perfume! I guess the latest splurge would be the Holly Aiken bag I bought for myself in December. It was on sale though.

    • luv coupons

      I last splurged on myself when the doctors from my office gave every employee $300 gift cards to go on a shopping spree for ourselves. I definitely ended up buying some perfume I would have never bought.

    • Steve


    • heather

      I love clinque's Happy perfume and I haven't splurged on it in forever, but I just might now if there's a good deal on it on this website. Thank you!

    • Camiele

      I bought myself a Coach purse a couple months ago and love it!

    • Thekimberly

      Over $1000 of spa services last November.

    • Waynieann

      Lancome makeup last week

    • Tonya

      Let's see the last time I splurged on something special… I don't know… I am so frugal it is unreal…I guess when I bought filet mignon steaks to grill out for my family…. just because… no special occasion.

    • Britni!

      SPLURGE!? How can you splurge when you're a senior in college & only have $150 a month to live off of? My last splurge? The $5 Cosmo one year subscription deal last month! :)

    • I had dinner at the Melting Pot last month, that is splurging.

    • Rdotson06

      Went overboard on two pairs of shoes for a Christmas party…

    • Pegboard

      With six growing boys and a husband, I always feel like I splurge when I spend any money on myself. So when I bought pink, Nike, running shoes, I felt I really splurged because that isn't something that can be past down. Even if it was at Goodwill!

    • Geri

      Last Christmas..too many great sales going on!

    • Blessed

      The last time that I splurged on something for myself that was nice was probably a couple years ago.

    • Hillary B

      I'm actually saving up to get the thing I am going to splurge on. A Burberry purse. And I have almost run out of perfume because I am putting that money to my purse fund!
