Live a little

I feel bad that we do not have the budget yet to buy the things that we WANT. I know we should be thankful that we can now more or less finance out needs like food, clothing and shelter, but luxuries and wants like an all terrain with atv power steering, new cellphones and laptops and gadgets like Ipads are still not practical for us at this point. I'd like to think that we should sometimes "live a little" and enjoy the finer things in life, however, for people like us who watch over the budget like a hawk, it's crucial not to spend too much on wants, especially when the "needs" will have to be compromised. Do not deprive yourself. While you may not be able to afford the high end toys and gadgets, small pleasures like eating in a nice restaurant once in while is a nice treat to make you feel good about yourself. I believe ti also gives you a boost so you get more energy working. A little splurge now and then makes for a better frame of mind. Just do not overdo it.
