A splurge

I used to the queen of the frugalistas when I was paying off my student loans. These days though, I’ve been toning it down a little bit because I have a substantial amount of money in the bank, and I actually make a lot more money than I did compared to say 5 years ago (almost double). So this means that I am willing to have things that increase my enjoyment of life (2 cats, a nice apartment, a car) and I feel like I can reward myself for those years of sacrifice.

My likely next purchase: a Stand-up Paddleboard (SUP). I’m checking it out this weekend to see if I like it. I’ve wanted one for about 3 years now and I think it’s time. My friend has a hook-up with a dealer, so I can get a really good deal on it. The rewards of smart financial living: happy paddling around the beautiful oceans and rivers of Korea.

This Inflatable Stand-Up Paddleboard SUP is very similar to the one I’ll be getting!


  1. Let me know how you like it. I think SUPs look super-fun, but I don’t know anyone who has actually tried it.

    • I’ve done it lots of times actually! I always try to rent one when I’m somewhere fabulous and tropical. This will be my first experience in the cold water.
