Don’t feel guilty in replacing your worn-out items. However, it’s very easy to lose track of how much you’re spending so, set yourself a budget and be quite targeted in your purchases so as not to suffer from buyer’s remorse later.
You may be fortunate for your windfall to be enough to cover an entire holiday and may already be surfing the internet for the nearest tropical destination but, hold on a minute. You’ll need to book flights and annual leave from work, perhaps get a passport and all of this takes time. In addition to finding the best flight deal, consider safeguarding your accommodation and spending money by looking at options to put the funds into a short term deposit and earn some interest, ready for your big trip.
