I recently won a year-long HealthyWager that earned me $778 for dropping 50+ pounds (yay me!).
Lots of people knew I was almost there (hello, accountability), and most of them asked, “What are you going to do with your prize money?” to which my standard reply was, “Fritter it away on frivolous purchases!”
I said it like it was a joke, but it’s not: I love having enough money to buy all the silly, even absurd, trinkets that delight me. It hardly ever happens (I’m not good at saving my fun money, which comes as a surprise to precisely no-one).
For my own amusement, I’m keeping a list of all the things (absurd or otherwise) I’m spending my winnings on. In no particular order…
