At RLPG we’re all about saving money. Still, part of having a rich life means knowing how and when to treat yourself. Everyone needs a break now and then. A tax refund can be a great way to pay off bills, or buy things you really need — like a computer or new tires. But if you’ve taken care of your responsibilities, and what you really long for is an end-of-winter pick-me-up… well, let’s just say that the rule of a treat is you should not need it, but want it. Disclaimer: following this rule means you have to accept that there is a difference between want and need. As in, no, you don’t actually need novelty tights or Downton Abbey on DVD.

1. This Phone Case That Will Print Your Photos

The Kickstarter campaign for Prynt, the phone case that turns your phone into an instant Polaroid-style camera, was massively successful. Until March 2nd, you can preorder one (with options for the number of printer pages to include) for $99 and up. It’s a brand-new way to hop on board the Polaroid trend without carrying an extra camera around. Plus, it comes in cute colors.

2. This Sword Umbrella

Spring means the rainy season for many of us, but nothing will cheer you up under gray skies more than feeling like a secret agent or a low key knight of some kind. You can get all kinds of sword umbrellas, too, everything from samurai swords to sabers (for umbrella pirates!).

3. A Catillac

A treat for both you and your best furry friend. Do you need a Cat Cadillac? Absolutely not, but look at the picture of a cat sitting in one, and you’ll want one. Also available: Cat Castle, Cat Airplane, and Cat Tank, though none have the pun power of the Catillac.

4. This Scientific Spice Rack

It’s perfect for playing mad scientist while cooking, and that’s good enough reason to want it. Plus, It’s cute and will keep everything organized in your laboratory/kitchen.

5. These Speakers That Make Pretty Lights

These speakers make light pulse and water do things to the beat of your music! You’ll probably never stop watching them. In fact, if there was a tool someone wanted to use to hypnotize humans, evil-genius style, this would do it.
