3. When the pros outweigh the cost
There may be times when a splurge makes sense if the pros outweigh the costs, like purchasing a new computer. For example, if the computer will help you advance in your studies or something of that sort, then it might make sense to reevaluate your financial goals and debt to see how to make purchasing the computer work. This is a grey area, or fine line, so to speak. What's important is that you've thought through this type of splurge by creating a detailed list of the pros and cons to see if it's truly worth it and if you can make it work within your budget.
When Not to Splurge
1. When you have buyer's remorse
Buyer's remorse is not fun, and it's a sure sign that you probably shouldn't have splurged. Why have something if you're only going to feel guilty about having it, or you're going to worry about not having enough money for the necessities? You can always return an item if possible if this scenario describes you.
2. When you splurge too much or too frequent, so it doesn’t evoke much joy
If you're constantly spending or buying items for yourself or your children/family, then it can take away the reward or treat that the occasional splurging can emphasize or represent.
Everyone loves to splurge and buy their favorite things! That’s what you work so hard for.
3. When you will end up paying more for it in the long run
If your splurging means racking up credit card debt, then reconsider. If you don't pay your balance in full or within a reasonable time-frame, then you could end up spending a lot more than the original purchase price due to credit card interest.

And if financial splurging isn't in your budget for this June, then consider splurging in other ways, like on that extra piece of cake, or a long bath with candles. Enjoy!
