National Splurge Day

If the waste is within reason, and you control your desires and impulses, National Splurge Day is a great excuse to go shopping and spend some money on yourself. National Splurge Day is a fun holiday that will give you a brief break from endless everyday life and hard work. Thrift is something which it is impossible to live with all the time. You must be able to relax and please yourself.


The history of trade relations and shopping has the same deep roots as humanity. It all started with bartering, but with the advent of money, shops appeared, and with the development of the automotive industry, shopping centers began to open. Trade has taken pride of place in the holiday calendar as one of the most ancient relationships between people.

It is believed that National Splurge Day was invented and established by Chicago resident Adrienne Sue Coopersmith.

Interesting Facts

  • In the first trade relations, cattle and grain were used as money.
  • In the 18th and 19th centuries, family shops were very popular in the United States, opening almost throughout the country. Later, they were replaced by large department stores.
  • Another key moment in the history of trade is the development of online stores, e-commerce, and sales on social networks.
  • Adrienne Sue Coopersmith, besides National Splurge Day, came up with about 1900 more holidays.

How to Take Part

  • Read how celebrities spend their money – there are some really big spenders among them.
  • Go shopping with friends, and let yourself relax in good company.
  • Buy what your intuition tells you – sushi, flowers, your favorite dessert, a bag, clothes, or car accessories.
  • Organize a shopping trip for a loved one if they cannot afford it.
  • Share what you have. Be kind and selfless. Collect things you do not wear and give them to the poor.
