The key to SMART finances is SMART saving, spending, and investing. It can be difficult to know the difference between buying something that may be an investment or an unnecessary expense. Life is short and enjoying the journey (with some SMART luxuries) is an important part of that journey. Here are some items that may be worth their cost.
Oculus Go Personal Theatre VR Headset
Dinner and a movie is not what it used to be. With movie tickets running on average close to $20 per ticket in many places, investing in an immersive personal entertainment system will pay itself over.
Oculus Go is a whole new way to watch in VR. With crystal clear optics and state-of-the-art 3D graphics, the headset feels like a personal theater. It’s portable, comfortable, and designed to be ready with no wires, no PC, and no phone to drop in. You can experience your favorite TV shows, movies, concerts, and sporting events with your friends.
The iPad Air is one of the newest and smartest iPads on the market. If you’re after the next big thing and want to make notes and sketches with Apple Pencil or want a tablet which is compatible with a smart keyboard, then this is for you.

Inflatable Paddle Board
Paddleboarding has really taken off over the last few years, and if you’ve not tried it yet, then you really should book yourself a session. Now that the inflatable paddle board exists, it’s even easier to participate. Wave riders predominantly used expensive hardboards as a means of propelling themselves on to the waves. Now anyone can join. If you’re into watersports, outdoorsy and looking for a new hobby or challenge to master, then treat yourself to your own inflatable paddleboard.
The ultimate self-balancing scooter comes complete with Built-in Bluetooth Speakers and Waterproof Carry Bag. It is even Smartphone App-Enabled meaning you can track your location, extend training modes, play games and compete in competitions. If you want hours of fun, you’ve got the money to spare, and you deserve it, then get yourself a segway.
Whether it’s a Espresso machine or a rosin press, or another indulgence, don’t feel guilty if you have earned it and have your financial house in order. Make sure you are living to work, not working to live!
