Hey ladies, are you looking for the thrill of a spending spree? Squandering tons of money can feel so bad that it’s good – when you reap the rewards of your purchase. Read on to learn about those big-ticket items that feel barely legal. Here are five of the most fun things to do with your money. Don’t worry, we won’t tell.

1. Buy an Expensive Handbag

What good is it to have tons of money if you don’t have anything nice to keep it in? Tuck that price tag away in the back of your mind. Splurge on that expensive handbag you’ve always wanted. Delight in a shopping spree just for purchasing a pocketbook – or three. With Chanel or Louis Vuitton, you can’t go wrong.

Spend Smart Tip: hit up sample sales to find the best deals on the latest styles.

2. Pamper with Costly Cosmetics

When you’re strapped for cash, cosmetic items are likely the first to get cut. But your skin is your largest organ and what you put on it gets absorbed back into your body, so you might be cheating your health by downsizing your body budget. If you’re looking to expend some extra money, consider spending extra on top-of-the-line cosmetics.

Spend Smart Tip: Choose those expensive makeups and creams with the fewest ingredients to get the most bang for your buck.

3. Enjoy an Extravagant Getaway

Experiential spending offers twofold dividends; you can enjoy the trip in the moment, and the memories last a lifetime. Enjoy an extravagant European getaway or checkout an exotic island (or two). If you have money to burn, why don’t you revel in the honeymoon you never had? Complete the experience by booking a five-star hotel with amazing amenities.

Spend Smart Tip: spare no expense when it comes to food and drink. Be sure to cut your budget in other ways. Limit your vacation shopping sprees so you can take pleasure in the local fare.

4. Spend Limitless Hours Online Gambling

There’s nothing more thrilling than playing to win. Why not let yourself try for a little while. Most people try to be frugal with their online fun, but not you. Spend limitless hours online gambling and harness your inner high roller.

Spend Smart Tip: take mini-breaks between sessions to refresh your eyes and your mind so you’re sure to make the best decisions with your dough.

5. Indulge in a Spendthrift Spa Weekend

It’s time to pull out all the stops. Splurge on a spa weekend and spare no expense. Try all those wacky treatments you thought you could never afford. If the benefits sound too good to be true, try it for yourself and see.

Spend Smart Tip: just because you’re spending big, doesn’t mean you’re immune to a deal or two. Browse Groupon or Living Social to afford extra start treatment at your local spa.
