    When it comes to shopping, what are you more willing to spend money on? What are your splurges, and your steals?

    An example:

    I splurge on my swimsuits, but never on my beach cover ups.

    I splurge on my foundation, but stick to drugstore make up when it comes to eye shadows.

    I splurge on my jeans, but buy inexpensive lingerie from Target.


    What about you?

    I splurge on at least one good lipstick or lipgloss colour that I can wear everyday. I also splurge on my foundation stick because I don't use it that often so it lasts a long time. I buy cheap eyemakeup though because it needs to be replaced more often. I also splurge to get my hair coloured in the salon and I normally purchase high quality styling products but I buy drug store shampoo. I go to good salons, but I always pick the cheapest stylist.

    I save money on clothes, bags and shoes. I also feel guilty spending more than $30 on anything. Well, make it $40 because we're talking about Canadian currency here. ;) I spend a bit more on business casual type clothes because they are more versatile and therefore I get more use out of them. I rarely buy trendy clothing items that won't last more than one season.

    I splurge on handbags, and accessories in general...but I'm most indulgent with handbags. With clothing, I always look for deals, but I'm also willing to splurge on nice outerwear.

    I always want to splurge...hehe. But generally I steal on accessories, especially ones I consider to be very trendy or something I don't thiget a I won't get a lot of wear out of. I splurge more on items that I think are more classic and that I can update or change with other items.

    I splurge on lingerie, jewelry and paint brushes.
    steal: I always manage to find a great bag or a pair of shoes for a good price....but then again...it's all relative ;-)

    I splurge on expensive jeans, handbags, and coats - things that get wear every single day.

    steals are accessories such as costume jewellry and shoes, especially vintage.

    I spend money on knitwear, I've come to realise. Wool, cashmere, cotton. I use it all the time so I think it's wise. I also like to spend on shoes, and outerwear like a great coat or down jacket or something. And bags.

    What I generally don't spend big amounts on is socks and jeans/pants, for some reason.
