What does your spouse or significant other splurge on that you just don’t understand?
My husband used to pick up used radios at garage sales. He was going to fix them, “when he got around to it,” but he never did.
He never splurges on anything. The most money he spends is on his rowing club dues once a year.
He splurges on NOTHING. If he buys a book for $1 in a used book store, he spends 20 minutes justifying the purchase to me. I, on the other hand, am the queen of impulse purchases.
My wife buys shoes a lot. I am more like Bev’s husband, Walt. I agonize over buying some little trinket. My wife is an impulse buyer. I research for six months for a pair of socks. Then I feel guilty when I buy them. I ask myself if I really needed them. After all I do have two socks, although they are not the same color. Who’s going to see them.
Yes, you and Walt are two peas in a pod, wearing mismatched socks.
My daughter doesn’t match her socks either, the more then don’t match the more likely she is to wear them. I don’t bother putting them together in her drawer anymore, I just toss them in.
Individual vitamins. There are at least 10 different ones. I don’t understand why he just doesn’t buy a multivitamin and be done with it. I’ve asked. I never get a straight answer.
There is no straight answer. I use a multi and I still have to supplement it — with doctor’s approval.
Groceries. The man can spend $100 on cheeses without thinking twice.
