What do you splurge on? (Read 115 times)

    Besides running stuff?

     

    I opened up a bottle of really good olive oil last night to use with dinner - it was like some obnoxious price like $20 for 500 mL, but it made me soooo happy when I cracked it open.     So, FOOD is certainly something I have no problem dropping big money on.

     

    We also like electronic toys in this house, and the DH just bought me a Nikon SLR camera that I have no friggin idea how to use (yet)!

        Us too!   In the days before we had dogs, we did at least two trips a year.  Now it's harder to find pet sitting for our merry band of semi-dysfunctional dogs and we do less traveling... but we do have plans to travel next year (Hawaii).

            There is a stand at my Farmers Market that makes crazy delicious olive oil for $12. Sooooo good.

             

            Seconding D, I like to travel and I don't do it cheaply. I also eat about at least once a week at nice places.

              I rarely splurge on anything, but when I do it's most likely travel.

                Me too! I'm cheap when it comes to everything else. But I'd be traveling all the time if I could quit my job and sell all of my possessions.

                  Fast food, unfortunately.  I really gotta stop that!

                    Why doesn't eating fast food make us fast?

                        They'll tell you that failure is not an option.  That's ridiculous.  Failure is always an option.  It is the easiest and most readily available option.  It's your choice though.

                          Travel. I don't travel a whole lot, but when I do, I like staying in the nice expensive places.

                           

                          My husband is the one with the expensive hobbies. We bought him a DSLR camera for Christmas a few years ago, he got a telescope for his birthday (LAST MONTH), and now he's talking about getting a new laptop. I'm a pushover.

                            Food, beer and wine. I am kind of a snob...especially with beer, I will pay whatever necessary to drink beer that I really enjoy than whatever is cheap. Wine to a degree...I won't guzzle down $200 bottles, but I will not drink anything out of a box or the "house wine" at a restaurant. My boyfriend and I also have expensive taste in food, and love going to famous chef's restaurants. Once every few months we spend an obscene amount of money at one of Bobby Flay's, Morimoto's, Mario Batali's, ect. restaurants. LOVE food and booze!

                              We are like that too.  We don't splurge on fancy dinners (maybe once a year) yet we sure splurge on travel.  Last year, we went to 6 places.

                                I feel you could get some inknburn out of this.  "Well, YOU got a new laptop, sniff."
