What do you enjoy spending more money on because it enhances your experience? Maybe you like to stay at the top-rated resorts when you travel? Or you enjoy the experience of a nice dinner out? And what things do you spend less on because your experience isn’t enhanced by spending more? Generic vs. name brands at the grocery store? Or taking public transportation when you travel? Today our roundtable discusses a blog post about spending more on what you value and being frugal in other areas of spending and your life.
