You have £3k to spend on yourself

What do you buy?

The rules are simple: it cannot benefit anyone but you. So if you wanted to go on holiday, that’s fine, but anyone else would have to pay their part completely. You cannot buy anything for anyone else including children and you cannot pay off debt.

So in this dreamland, what are you buying?

I was thinking a VCA necklace but even in this fake world, I can’t imagine spending so much on one thing!

I’d have a week on my own at a beautiful small beach hotel (Caribbean/Maldives/Seychelles/Mauritius) with a pile of books. All inclusive obviously.

A new TV

A wonderful pair of bespoke shoes. I'm a size 9 and have never worn shoes I truly love, always those I've settled for because they aren't too ugly or uncomfortable.

I'd start with a really good quality and expensive winter coat to see me through a good few years. Then a total wardrobe revamp, buying better quality pieces than I usually do, a nice designer handbag and matching purse then probably some expensive make up. Think I might have gone over 3k there 😂 i can dream!

Eyes lasered

I'd go somewhere amazing for a couple of weeks on my own. Well I'd invite DP if he wants to pay his own way.

Otherwise I'd blow it all in Mulberry. A small Alexa, a Bayswater and a Lily should cover it.

@Sunbird24 oh imagine the bliss with a pina colada!

Ooh. Probably some new clothes and shoes. And I'm starting to have dreams about travelling as I'm so bored, so a lovely trip somewhere like Sweden,.post covid

IceDiscoSkater Fri 01-Jan-21 17:20:25

Oooh I’d get my teeth sorted , whitened and crowns repaired / fillings all changed to white

Hair done properly in a salon - I’ve been balayaging it myself for years but would love a professional polished look.

New wardrobe like quality coat , real leather boots etc. proper insulated winter jacket etc

I’ve got 1k credit card debt so I’d pay that off too
3 K would be a lovely little luxury.
