I want to hear what things you splurge on and why. What are things that other people splurge on that you think is a total waste?

The last few years, I've bought a handful of purses that are splurges to me, but I find them to be really well made and I can use them for years to come (I switch out my purse every 2-4 months and I go back to old ones frequently). I've got a couple of Harveys purses (made from seat belt material), a few Dooney & Bourkes, a Kate Spade, and one Coach purse, bought at a big discount.

I will also spend money on a well made jacket, but I don't really need to anymore since I live in the desert and it's not very cold here. I have a couple of NorthFace jackets that have lasted forever (one I've had since I was 17); they are great.

I generally don't spend too much on clothing otherwise and I think buying high end stuff for every piece in your wardrobe is a waste.

Games. I've wasted so much money on games that I only play for a couple of hours then never play them up again.

Oh, that's a good one. They're expensive these days!

I have a Wii, but I haven't played it in a while.

Haha a wii. Sorry not meaning to make fun but even nintendo is beyond done with that. It was theyre biggest seller in history console wise but most of them ended up mothballed and it did neat things to the industry

Probably what we spend the most on is food tbh (esp coffee).

Do you guys eat out a lot?

We eat food that isn't made at home usually only once or twice a week.

I won't skimp on make-at-home coffee, because sh*tty coffee just isn't worth it imo. That's not a huge expense in real dollars, but it's something I won't compromise on buying. I'm big on shopping sales and store brands for most stuff, but when it comes to coffee, I like what I like, and if I can't have that, I just won't have it at all.

Coffee as a non coffee person is super duper confusing. Oh no not my brand of burnt bitter beans to soak in water

I need my beanwater before work otherwise im unrrasonable like this whole scenario isnt confusing
2 months ago - Friday 8/17/18 - 5:49:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
...by that I mean that I make 95% of the coffee I drink at home, rather than buying it out, but I'm picky on brands of beans/grinds I'll buy for that.

I drink one cup of coffee in the morning now, but I'm totally not picky about it, tbh.

I prefer instant at home, but I drink the free Folgers drip coffee here at work.

I'm kind of with Hylian on the it's all "burnt bitter beans" train.

I splurge on concerts or plays.
I would like to splurge on a broncos game this year. But don't know if I can do one more big expense this year...

Oh yeah, we've been to 2 Broncos games in Denver so far and those def qualify, especially when you stay downtown.

I suppose we could add vacations to that list, because we do splurge on those at times.
2 months ago - Friday 8/17/18 - 5:58:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think maybe drinking Folgers and/or instant coffee is why you might just think all coffee is "burnt, bitter beans".

I find those cheap versions ok, though, so I don't see any reason to spend real dollars on coffee.

Why do even coffee nerds i know need milk copious and sugar spoonfuls to deal with coffee

Just drink a coke. Its literally the same but less work

I get rituals but its never the ritual thsts respected, just the beanwater

Mostly sh*t I pick up on Steam or in humble bundles.

I've got a few 4x games (Civilizations, Stellaris). I really like the concept of them but I'm terrible. I just do things without even knowing why or having a goal and I don't get anywhere. Then because nothing is happening I just get bored and eventually move on to something else and forget about them.

I buy very nice furniture. And I spend a decent amount of my money on my pottery hobby.

Oh books would probably count. I never leave a bookstore empty handed.
Usually less than $20
But there have been trips that are closer to, if not more than, $100 Those are few and far between though.

I only put a little milk (and NO sugar or sweetener) in my coffee to cut the acid because otherwise it doesn't sit great on my stomach. I actually love the taste of black coffee, but I can't tolerate it well. I'm not a big sugar person anyway, and especially not in the morning, so a Coke (even a diet, which still *tastes* sweet) would just make me sick.

Also, I make mine at home in a French press, which is definitely a ritual. It's a nice thing to do for myself. Sometimes at 3 in the afternoon even though it's a bad idea to have that much caffeine that late.

I used to be one of those people that drank sodas daily (normally two 12 oz cans), but with coffee and tea, I've cut it WAY down, I have a few of the small cans a few times a week and that's it these days.

I think I feel better, too.
