Cost Per Use

Think about the last time you bought something that cost "a little more than you planned on spending." I'd venture to guess that you wear or use that product a lot, and every time it comes out you appreciate it as much as you did the first day you bought it.

Keep your splurges confined to items of timelessness; things you will be able to use over and over again. If you can look at your purchases in terms of a "per use" cost, you will find that the things you pay the most for, end up being the cheapest in the long run because you use them until worn out.

That navy solid suit that you know, the one you wear every week when you have the big meeting? the same one you painfully paid $3,000 for?? Well, it was worth it because you use it and feel great in it. It raises your level of confidence and gives you an edge when you need it. (Cost Per Use over 2 years at 1x/week: $28.84)

That purchase makes a heck of a lot more sense than the $4,000 purple suit you picked up on clearance for $ know the one.....stuck in the back of the closet, dust on the shoulders, you've tried it on at home infront of the mirrow 11 times, but it's never made it outside of the house..... (Cost Per Use: $650 )

When you splurge, splurge on things that you will always makes justification a lot easier!!!
