It’s always fun when you come into an extra bit of money. Whether you’re a high-earner or just have some extra cash to spend, there are plenty of ways to splurge your money if you’re looking for ideas. Be it a spa day, going on a shopping spree, getting a new TV for the living room, or the trip of a lifetime, here are some ideas on what you could spend your money on.
Take a Vacation
You’ve been working hard, and now you need to take a vacation. Why? Because life is short, and time is precious. You need to take time out of your life to relax, even if it’s only for a week or two every year, to do something different — to go somewhere you’ve never been before or meet someone new who can teach you something new about yourself.
If you’ve got the cash to splash, your budget might know no bounds, which is where the term “the world’s your oyster” is literal – for you. Whether you want a five-star luxury resort experience or a year-long backpacking trip around the world, there’s a vacation for you to spend your dimes on.
Indulge in a Spa Day
Getting a spa treatment is one of the best ways to relax, pamper yourself, and get some well-deserved “me” time. There are many options: facials, massages, pedicures, aromatherapy — the list goes on!
While these treatments can be expensive (especially if you’re not used to spending money on yourself), they’re worth it for how much joy and relaxation they bring into your life. Spa days are also a great way to bond with friends or loved ones who also love getting pampered.
Buy a New Wardrobe
Most people would dress amazingly in the styles they love if they had the money. Now that you do, it might be time to overhaul your attire and get all the goodies you’ve always dreamed of wearing. A new wardrobe will be worth the investment when you feel great in what you’re wearing, as dressing well can help improve self-confidence – not to mention it’s fun!
Plus, if you invest in high-quality pieces, such as luxury shoes, branded coats, high-end clothing, and designer handbags, you’ll notice these items last much longer than their cheaper counterparts. This means you won’t need to replace your goodies for a very long time, so long as you take good care of them – and in the current age of low-quality, cheap fast fashion, quality and avoiding waste have never been so important.
Buy Your Dream Car
People who splurge on a car are likely to see the benefits of their purchase immediately. There’s nothing like cruising in a new car, and it’s not just because you’re enjoying all the bells and whistles and driving around in style; it’s also because you can tell yourself you have something that everyone else doesn’t. Most people won’t ever own their dream car because, let’s face it, many people’s ideal car is something that costs more than their house!
Buy a New TV
When it comes to TVs, you’re often better off splurging on a screen with a bigger size. As prices have gone down, screen sizes have gotten bigger – and they’ll continue to do so as manufacturers optimize their products for large-scale production rather than focusing on making smaller and more expensive displays.
Some of the top TV manufacturers are now offering 65-inch screens at prices that would’ve been unheard of just two years ago — and they’re still able to make money while delivering size and quality because their costs are lower than ever before.
Purchase Quality Cooking Apparatus
When you’re cooking, the pots and pans you use are some of the most important things in your kitchen. A high-end set of pots will make your food cook more evenly and taste better, while a cheap set might cause burning or sticking. Your best bet is to buy high-quality stainless steel (or ceramic) pots that come with lids so you can save on energy costs by steaming instead of boiling water.
In addition, you can’t go wrong with having at least one cast iron pot and pan; these are some of the highest quality kitchen cookware items, and they literally last a lifetime if you look after them!
