Welcome to The $100 Question, where fellow BlogHers are asking questions ... and every answer could be worth one hundred dollars!
$100 Question The Frugal Girl
Let's meet today's host: Kristen from The Frugal Girl

I’m a 31 year old mom of four, and wife of one. I’m a homeschooler(I’m a homeschool graduate too!), part-time piano teacher, part-time piano player, dabbler in photography, and baking nut, among other things.
I’ve been frugal all my life, and I write this blog to inspire other people to live on less(cheerfully, even!). This blog is all about the practical, day-to-day ins and outs of frugal living(you won’t find posts on index funds and investing here!), and it’s also the home of Food Waste Friday.

Ready to play? Here is The $100 Question for Tuesday, May 18:

I'm frugal to the core, but part of the reason I'm frugal is so that I can splurge on the stuff that's really important to me. Like, oh, camera equipment. I make my own yogurt, buy second-hand clothes, cook from scratch and line-dry, but I just forked over $1600 for a new camera body. Whee!

So, what is one item you simply must splurge on?
