I saw this post at You Have More Than You Think and decided to do a similar one.
I am always trying to find ways to save money or to make more money and I talk about being frugal.
This does not mean that I do not spend money and in fact here is a list of a few things that I am glad I spent the extra money on.
My Electric Toothbrush: I got this as a Christmas present and recently had to buy new heads for the brush.
I am glad I spent the money because my teeth feel SO very clean when I use the brush that I literally run home to brush in the evenings.
My dentist has already said they notice that I am doing a better job and I told them I got this new toothbrush!!!
Coupon Binder: I can get coupons for the next few months so this helps me to save money in the future.
I buy one coupon packet every month and use the coupons through the year to save money.
Vitamins: Hey they help keep me healthy!!!! I don’t take as many as in the image but I am sure to pop at least a Centrum and a Vitamin C every day.
Internet Connection: I recently cut the cable cord by disconnecting my cable television service BUT there is no way I will go without internet service.
Smart Phone: I currently have a Google G1 phone and it is like my right lung right now. I do not know how I survived without this phone as it allows me to be constantly online and access so many things.
Hey, me too! I recently went in for my 6 month cleaning and my orthodontist said my teeth looked better as well. What can I say..the toothbrush just does the job for you!
I agree that some things are better to spend a little bit more on. An electric toothbrush does make a huge difference. As for vitamins, if you plan your meals well I don’t think it’s really necessary to pop vitamins everyday.
My electric toothbrush is one of my favourite things as well without a doubt. I even spent the extra $40 and bought the best model when i went shopping. You gotta look after your teeth!!
Yeah I see what you’re saying as well Laptop Briefcase but sometimes it gets pretty hectic. I mean between work, school, family, and all those errands in between a nutritious and healthy meal is sometimes not the priority anymore unfortunately.
I got a spin brush, because the electric was just too expensive, but we all get our teeth cleaned every 6 months at a dental hygenine school. The kids pay 10.00 and adults are 25.00, good savings!
Well I got my electric toothbrush as a gift (after buying that person one as a gift) so technically I paid for it…but at the same time I did not.
Lucky you to have the dental school nearby. I used to have one on campus while I was in college but now I have to pay for the regular dentists since I moved.
I know people balk at the cost of the dental visit…but I would rather pay $35 every six months than pay the hundreds that root canals and cavities cost.
Yeah I would have to agree with the internet, I myself could definitely do away with the Television too, in fact I’ve lowered my monthly television bill by cutting off the secondary tv, and only having one tv, and lowering the monthly package. But oh my… lowering my internet speed, and cutting my internet is definitely something I would never do!
