You’ll add the special thing
The $12 lobster tail to the steak dinner. The $6 guacamole to the fajitas. The $7 liqueur floater to the margarita. The limo instead of the sedan Uber. The room with the view, for a little more than the one that faces the parking lot. The blowout with the haircut. You start adding those little extras that aren’t necessary and are pure luxury. On a tight budget, you typically say no to the up-charges and the add-ons. They can put you over your strict budget. But after a certain income level, that $6 guacamole makes no difference in your dining budget.
