I appreciate that your steal v. splurge isn't like what you see in the magazines. I hate reading these stupid fashion magazines and the splurge items are $3,000 and the "steal" items are $400 for a freaking handbag. That is not a steal people! :)

Erin, I agree, if they're going to show you a steal, they need to make it geared toward the average reader, who has an Average job and average income.
