    Besides a house or car, what have you spent the most amount of money on?
    Boat?
    Beth's, aka Escorts? Allegedly.
    Jewelry? Only idiots buy jewelry. Waste of fucking money.
    Art?
    Wigs?

    What have I spent most amount of money on? I don't purchase luxury items. Although, I do believe you should purchase home furnishings that last. Buy pieces that will last you for life.

    I don't waste money on fancy cars or clothes or anything.
    Other than home repairs, the only large purchases I've made are vacations.
    I feel stressed when I'm booking my vacation online... Thousands of dollars being thrown away!

    When I was making easy bucks, it went through me like bad clams.
    Besides property and cars? Vacations. Jewelry is silly.

    I just bought a massage chair that was kinda expensive. Inada Dreamweave, it was about $9K. http://www.inadausa.com/massage-chair-models/sogno-dreamwave/

    I also like cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles, UTV's, etc so I tend to spend a lot of those. This year alone I bought a new GMC truck with all the options, a new Harley Street Glide and a new Polaris XP1000 RZR, plus I spent a shitload of money making my CTS-V faster. But I really like things with engines/wheels, so I tend to waste a lot of money on that kind of shit. The wife says it's a stupid waste of money, but you can't take it with you so why not enjoy life every day?

    And Scotch. I like Scotch. Not that shitty Johnnie Walker swill that Bababooey is hawking, but good single malts. I spend about $600 month on good Scotch because it makes me happy.

    A cottage and a boat. Kind of odd that I never consider them luxury items. I don't drive luxury cars or spend money on extravagant vacations. No expensive jewelry for my wife or watches for me. My cottage costs me about $600/month, so that would be my nice car except that the house will pay me back someday. I've had two boats. Never spent more than $6k on one though. I buy old boats that have been taken care of.

    Very true. But I can walk over to my massage chair and get a massage any time of the day or night. It's the convenience factor. A human massage is still better of course, but not convenient.

    Watches. But I buy smart. I can turn around and flip any of them for more than I paid in a pinch...

    If you can make a profit then it's worth it every time.

    I want to get into nice watches, but I really don't know much about them. I always wanted a Rolex since I was a kid, I just associated them with being "the best". I'm thinking about picking up one for some reason. I'll look for a used one for a decent price.

    Let's see: aside from my house, clothes (suits for work, et al) and last new car (bought in 2007 and still in daily use), the most expensive thing I bought was an XBox 360 I got for my son's birthday a few years back. In the early '90s, I had an escort to my house for $100 but that was a disaster - all she did was tell me how much she hated doing it and needed to support her kid. Hard-on killer right there. Kicked her out but let her keep the $$.

    Same here. I'm still wearing some of the casual clothes that I got from Target 10 years ago and I kept my last Rav4 for 13 years until I replaced it with a new one 2 years ago. Wifey and I both think jewelry is stupid, but I got a thing just for Omega Speedmaster variants. Flipped all of them except 2 when I finally got hold of what's considered the "holy grail" of them (076.0822) a few years ago and while it was an insane price for a fucking 25 year-old watch, I know I could flip it in an instant for a lot more than I paid and it appreciates way faster than that same money would have grown anywhere I'd have left it. I already got 1K just for the equally rare original band from another Omega nut a few days after picking it up.

    Rolex watches aren't really that nice... they are sort of like the Cadillac of cars... Cadillac's may be good quality but they are mass produced. I am surprised at the people saying buying jewelry is stupid - I totally disagree. I love watches. Nice watches... Audemars Piguet, Panerai, Patek, IWC, Franck Muller, etc. Many of these watches start around the $15k+ range and the mid range ones are in the $50k range, and top line ones are a few hundred thousand or more. The thing that makes watches great is they have NO TITLE, no records are kept of their sale/purchase, and if you buy right, they will appreciate in value.

    What else can you park $50k in and be reasonable sure it will appreciate in value, and be able to stick in your pocket or on your wrist and sell for cash without raising a single eyebrow?
