I just got my hair cut! I spent £28 for a wash, cut, blow dry, AND a brow wax. I'd say that is really cheap.

Save...as much as I try to pretend, I'm really not a shoe person...so I could care less how much they cost, as long as I like them.  The only expensive shoes I own are ones that other people have given to me as gifts (that I didn't ask for).

I'd say save, because I buy it through work so its cheap, but its actually quite an expensive brand at Boots and I wouldn't buy it if I didn't get it cheap

splurge. My DF is a chocolate snob and insists on at least G&B, even for baking.

Save- I pride myself on being able to feed all 4 of us on 200 pounds a month.. (K baby still breast feeds, but I eat extra because of that!

Cars?
We stole countries with the cunning use of flags. Just sail around the world and stick a flag in. "I claim India for Britain!" They're going "You can't claim us, we live here! Five hundred million of us!" "Do you have a flag …? "What? We don't need a flag, this is our home, you bastards" "No flag, No Country, You can't have one! Those are the rules... that I just made up!...and I'm backing it up with this gun, that was lent to me from the National Rifle Association."

Save - we have a (2001?) Nissan Micra, don't need/use the car that much.  Flash cars don't do anything for either of us.  :P

Can I say both?  There's nothing like chucking it in the the locals in a home stay for a few nights and then booking yourself into a 5 start hotel.

Yes, but you need to ask your Save or Splurge question too.  :)

Splurge...it doesn't have to be the most expensive on the shelf but I like specific brands and I've tried cheap stuff (store brand or whatever) and can't drink it
