Splurging is not bad if you've taken care of all other financial responsiblities. Retail therapy if you will, hehe.

The way I shop now is totally splurge-centric. I came back from Botcon with about seventy figures but I'd only bought one or two a month for most of the year. I hate paying postage and when it comes to G1 figures I like to inspect figures rather than rely on ebay.
My next big splurge will be BOTs or CONs or Auto Assembly, whichever is the next TF convention I get to, and I imagine that will be very trade-heavy.
Read my Novella, "Not In The Eye", cheap on Amazon.

To be honest, I leave my cards at home these days and never even want to have a paypal account.

I splurge once a year, my Birthday. Nobody has a clue as to what I want or even how to go about finding it so I just buy all my own gifts. Other then that, I keep my figures at roughly 1 to 2 a month.

I just ended my splurge mode actually. If you look at my collection (in signature), all of that was purchased or received from trades since early April. It's a bittersweet feeling. You get what you want, but you're left with an aching wallet. Personally, I'm an impatient person and I try to get what I want as soon as I reasonably can since I'm going to end up getting it anyway.

Once in a while, I splurge. It's a fun release. Sometimes it's random, when I have a lot more money after paying bills than usual, or when I have a good run of eBay sales. I also always plan a splurge around Comic-Con, though even then it's not all that big of a splurge.

Buying Giant or Hercules is splurging.I have summoned you here for a purpose. Nobody summons Megatron. Then it pleases me to be the first.
I just bought Giant
