It's time to treat yo' self. When you're standing in the store aisle, there are some things that are just worth the extra pennies. What makes our list? Read on.
TP — As far as daily quality of life goes, non-scratchy toilet paper is a small splurge that's waaay worth it.
Bathroom towels — A relaxing shower feels so much more so with a big, fluffy finish. Don't try to dry yourself with a skimpy, threadbare towel ever again.
Tools — Even if you're less than handy around the house, everyone needs a few basic tools. Make sure yours are good quality — they'll be easier to use and last you forever. Wouldn't you rather buy one good screwdriver than five cheap ones? Yep, us too.
Sheets — It may not be as much as you'd like, but you still spend a good chunk of your life in bed. Your sheets should feel good, not pill, and hold up through many, many washes. The way to get that is to spend a little more up front.
Paint — No need to break the bank, but a mid-priced gallon of paint will not only cover better (fewer coats so you can use less!), it will look better and last long-term.
Knives — If you're a great cook then you deserve great knives. If you're NOT a great cook, you need them even more. A sharp, professional knife that fits your hand is easier and much safer to use and might even encourage your to eat in more often. No need for a set here, one or two multi-purpose models will do you just fine.
Tell us, what's on your must-splurge list?
