Chicago, IL USA:
It is hard to believe that National Splurge Day ©1994, one of my top 300 HOLIDATES TO CELEBRATE* is now in its 16TH year. However, Life has drastically and rapidly changed the last Decade lot alone the last year in which splurging is not a reality for many Folks and People anymore. Downsizing and cuttin back is more like it and that, to many is a terrifically hard thing to do.
"But how do you splurge when you can't pay the rent or you have to take the Kids out of private schools, Adrienne?" is what I often hear from Parents I speak to.
It's a matter of setting your priorities in order is what I initially tell them. Even in times of cut-backs, a vast array of FUN things can be done that cost hardly if any money...that rely mostly on being together with the ones you love. Splurging may be EXTRAS of this and EXTRAS of that...but in the long run and at the end, those material items do not add up to friendships and fond memories.
For this 'out of the ordinary' NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY ©1994, take 30 minutes to think of things you can do that don't cost alot but the returns are insurmountable.
Also, by all means, you can contact me at:
to let me know how you splurged this year. Your Entry will be placed in a Pool to win a $1000 gift certificate for next year's NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY - #17.
On behalf of Splurging: On the count of 3....
