Don't know why I'm feeling philosophical about purses.... Do you think it's better/wiser to buy lots of expensive things (ie handbags) when you're young and have lots of $$ to throw around and spoil yourself with - with the knowledge that your life will become more "mature" when you're older (ie mortgages, bills etc)?? OR Is it more appropriate to wait, save your $$ and really spoil yourself once you have established yourself and really want to treat yourself? Just wondering how one scenario plays against the other. Myself - well, I was thrust into "adulthood" before I was financially able to spoil myself with the $$ I earned whilst living at home w/ my parents - that is, before the responsiblilities of adulthood would have kicked in naturally. (Ahem, had an unplanned baby at 24...) So I didn't have the option of spoiling myself when I was young. I spoil myself a bit now - having 3 kids and a very successful business... I feel like I have earned it. But that is just me... What are your thoughts/opinions?
