How do you feel about spending money on yourself?

My mother's dying wish was that I spend money on myself, so for one year, I'm putting aside my penny-pinching instincts and doing it! This experiment has got me thinking about the way people feel about spending (or not spending) money on themselves – and I'd love your input via this short survey.

This is an anonymous survey; I don't get any identifying information about the respondents.
