at what amount of money do you question if you really need something?

I think $20 is where I start to really consider whether I need to be spending that money or not

I may be too quick to just spend $10-$15 on something just because I can

Oh I don't know. It changes all the time.

$50+. If it's more than $50, I really really question myself.

Which is of course why I'm having a hard time deciding if I want to make a gaming systems purchase. I was thinking a PS4, but idk.

Somewhere in the $20-$40 range. It used to always be $20 before credit cards became a thing.

About R100, which is I guess $10 but I don't know how it really translates in terms of real value

give me ten thousand skyfish dollars and i will murder a man

this question is about you spending money
not making money
1 month ago - Monday 12/18/17 - 5:55:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
Five dollars.

Because that's how much I would need to feed myself for two days at a minimum.

I’d say $10-$15 is about the cost of a good lunch
1 month ago - Monday 12/18/17 - 6:00:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
What does the lunch entail?

But a good lunch meal, without drinks, is around $6.5-$10 direct conversion

It depends entirely on the thing in question. I'm much more apt to pay for convenience than I am for a physical thing. Like I can easily justify buying a takeaway dinner but not a new fruit bowl.
1 month ago - Monday 12/18/17 - 6:12:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah. Things like grocery shopping I'm rarely too discerning about price and easily spend $100 but if I had to spend that much on something else it's like a biiiiig deal
1 month ago - Monday 12/18/17 - 6:15:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
for sure
I’m talking more about things you don’t actually need

so like going out to eat
or buying a movie or video game or clothes (assuming you already have clothes)


I spent $80 the other day on groceries without even meaning to
but yeah when it comes to that cost I don’t really care
it is what it is and I don’t want to deal with coupon clipping
1 month ago - Monday 12/18/17 - 6:18:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
Also: rule of three

Imagine if you spent it three times a week.

5x3 = 15, which is no big deal

15x3= 45, which is more than a week's grocery bill runs me.

THAT IS EATING MOOLA


Though I did drop 56 on comics without batting an eye


But I swear to god comics are my weakness.

$30-$40 is usually my ballpark. If it's more than that I'll track prices online and hunt for a deal before I buy.
1 month ago - Monday 12/18/17 - 6:21:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well I consider takeaway the same as going out to dinner...

But for impulse purchases of physical stuff, probably around £10 is my question myself point. But it depends on how much I have planned to purchase tbh.

I will spend the amount of money I have.
Every single time.
If I have $2 in cash, I'll spend $2.
If I have $200 I will spend $200.
1 month ago - Monday 12/18/17 - 7:12:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
that seems irresponsible
1 month ago - Monday 12/18/17 - 7:19:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
It probably is. But my bills do get paid.
1 month ago - Monday 12/18/17 - 8:22:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
probably $20? i should be more thoughtful about what i purchase though
1 month ago - Monday 12/18/17 - 8:34:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
depends on the item, depends on how many i'm getting, depends on my life

i question if something is over 75 cents
1 month ago - Monday 12/18/17 - 8:36:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
I question every purchase.

Same with me- - it's more about what it is and how much I'll actually use something rather than the price of it.

There is a long running joke in my circle of friends that if it's over £10 then I won't buy it.

That's not entirely true, though I guess most of the time it is, I just question things more when it's over £10.
1 month ago - Tuesday 12/19/17 - 5:38:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
It completely depends what it is. Or at least what type of thing.
