I say go for it!
Depending on how hard it weighs for you spending that money i believe that sometimes making yourself a little gift like that suits our souls.
I had been thinking about getting one of the beautiful Audemars Piguet watches for literally two years (these babies being quite expensive), and after two years of saving i finally got it.
It feels wonderful knowing that I was finally able to afford it through strong discipline in saving money and I wear it with joy and pride everyday.
I know this sounds highly superficial, but sometimes material things can bring us joy!
I would not trade it in for any of the happiness my family brings me everyday, though.
Well, it's been two years---- did you get the watch and are you still enjoying it two Mothers' Days later?
Happy Mothers Day- Enjoy your watch.
Not that it matters but when I graduated undgrad I received a Movado watch. I loved it and wore it daily for 10 years. I still have that watch in a velour case.
Wow, how did this thread get bumped?
Holy Moly!! I barely even remember this thread. But you know what?? I DID get the watch. And I LOVE IT!!! It still brings me joy when I put it on and it's in pristine condition. I do still wear my old, beat-up Timex Expedition digital watch around the house and for chores/gardening, but I really love my Tag Heuer. The maintenance is dear, but worth it. I'm glad I did it.
This year, I got a new compost tumbler for MD! Whoot! Been wanting one of those for a while, too. Hope I like it as much as my watch two years from now.
