Spending the extra money

I read an interesting article this past week written by Dave Ramsey. A well-known author and founder of The Lampo Group and Financial Peace University, he's toured the U.S. and has been an advocate of debt-free living for years.

His piece, entitled 'Save or Splurge: 7 Items That are Worth the Extra Money,' essentially claimed that while he urges being frugal, there are certain things in life worth the extra money. Although I didn't agree with the list completely, I quickly made a mental list of those things I find worth spending extra money on after reading his article. It also got me to thinking that even when you are 'willing' to pay extra for certain things, you can still save money by watching for sales/deals and by using coupons.
