According to www.wiktionary.com, to splurge means:
1. To spend lavishly or extravagantly, especially money.
I am pretty good about saving money and living within my means, so every once in a while, I splurge on something expensive. Just recently I purchased a netbook. My next splurge will be on a new HTC Evo 4G smartphone but not until my wireless phone contract is up so I can get a discount.
Some people I know complain about their finances but buy what I would consider splurge items all of the time. When managing your money, the best thing to do is keep a “need” and a “want” list. My motto is to only buy “want” items with cash and not with credit.
What is on your “want” list right now?
