I’m all for living life and if you want a certain something, I believe you should get it if you’ll use it and can afford the money to buy it, without getting yourself into debt or putting yourself into a financial difficulty.
I bought a drone earlier this year. I’ve blogged about it before. I used it a little bit but it was too big to drag around with me to places where I actually go to do photography. I sold it and put the money aside, thinking I would get a smaller one at some point. Then a couple of weeks ago the DJI Spark dropped down in price at Maplin. I bought it.

It’s quite a large (in price, not in size – it fits in your pocket!) purchase to consider a month or so before Christmas when people will be buying presents and also trying to save money for the inevitable ‘long’ January. However, it was at a price I wanted it to be at, what I’d kind of had in my mind that I wanted to buy it for. So, as long as I use it – which I will do for my YouTube photography vlogging channel – it’s a purchase I’d considered for a while and could have easily made for £200 more a few weeks previous.
We don’t know how long we’ve got on this planet and we don’t want to regret things on our deathbed. It might seem trivial, but if you want something, have reason for buying it and can afford it, go for it. Just ensure you are getting it for the best possible rice – check Quidco and online for vouchers or in-store offers etc. Live your life, just keep an eye on the monetary price you’re paying.
