I should put a finer point or two on that. Yes, they’re new and in a ‘sporty’ style, but they were also on sale and cheaply priced to begin with. I found myself saying out loud at the store that I was ‘splurging’ on a pair of new shoes. Shoes that I needed, because my other pair had fallen apart. I found that a little depressing. Splurging now means that I’m buying something that I actually need?
