The Reasons I Tell Myself It Is OK to Spend Money

I recently came across a great post about spending at Living Almost Large. She’s got a long list of reasons that people use to justify their spending. Here are mine:

  • I’m going to need that someday.
  • Whatever it takes to make it through deployment (or TDY, or PCS.)
  • This is going to save me a lot of money. (Think sewing machine, or power tools.)

After you’ve read her list, come on back and add your own.
