If you 'paid' for it and it will not impact you otherwise enjoy.

If you 'borrowed' the money (credit card debt you don't pay in full) or it will impact you otherwise, then not such an intelligent choice.

And all that is aside from my view of outrageous ticket prices to watch overpaid spoiled brats play some game.

Y'all are downers This was supposed to be a fun thread. Of course I paid for them and I had the money. I had the money because I'm a thrifty chic normally

Some people just like to rain on other peoples parade, I guess. You had the money and paid for it outright, I don't see anything wrong with that. Have fun at the game.

Enjoy it tabbcat.
It's just that your thread title was deceiving.
You didn't fall off any wagon....you just gave an example of one of the benefits of living frugally....being able to splurge on something you really want to do.

Go and have fun! Whatever you do, don't beat yourself up about having spent the money. You're doing something you love and you can afford it. If you feel guilty about it, not only will you have spent the money, but you won't enjoy it.

Downers? Maybe because you wrote:

>> DH and I got caught up in hockey fever! Now I'm wondering how many months straight we need to eat Kraft Dinner before I feel balanced again!

I'm not sure I understand why you posted the thread in the frugal forum to begin with....

I interpreted that last part in a tongue in cheek kind of way since she did also say in the original post that she's generally thrifty. I guess it just depends on perspective.

It was completely tongue in cheek... I actually love Kraft Dinner

But all's well that ends well...the friends we were going with backed out, and we were able to sell their tickets at enough of a profit to pay for our tickets!
