    am totally with you on the lush included part. what is the point of being frugal if you cant spend a little of what you have saved on some little things that make you feel lush! I love proper good soap. that’s one of mine. and expensive perfume. it lasts a long time and is a great ask as a xmas gift. also travel to see friends and family. gotta be done. also good wine. I hardly drink any more, so when I do, I want something a little bit special. don’t get me wrong am not over board on this, but I will spend a tenner at our local proper wine shop on a particular fave of mine. also, get a posh frock in the january sales. if you are going to be going out or get the invitation to something posh. have something special to wear. I bought an orla keily velvet dress for £65 (down from £320) and it will keep me going for a few good years. I wont feel cheap in it its proper lush.

    Hi Moyra, thanks for commenting. I am so glad you agree with my point of view, so many hard core frugalists believe that we should live on rice and beans until our financial situation improves. I believe that too much deprivation leads to a binge just like when you are dieting.
