Guilty pleasures - what do you spend money on?

NejNej Posts: 2,444Registered Users
Everyone has their things. I'm not thinking like tv shows and such but more what you spend your money on.

For me? It's fancy "girly" things

I am slowly building my fragrance wardrobe and have spend quite a bit at this amazing perfumerie in my city. People think I'm crazy but I love having expensive rare perfumes to cycle through. the bottles look pretty and I am always being told how good I smell. Loves it.

I have a friend whose bike costs more than their car. To me that is craziness! Haha

What's your thing?

    Fancy perfume, fancy sunglasses, shoes, and hello kitty and friends paraphernalia l(sp?) I buy everything on sale (minus the expensive perfume, never found any on sale) I love a good pair of expensive sunglasses that are cheap. I got some Vera Wang 275 dollar glasses for 40 bucks once.

    Girly stuff...clothes, shoes, makeup, skincare products, perfume, henna and other hair doo-dads.

    I don't do nail stuff or fancy handbags though. Those seem like a collossal waste of money to me. LOL

    Lately, gadgets.

    Recently, blush.

    Formerly, lipstick.

    It hit me yesterday that I haven't cooked with anything but European style cultured butter for as long as I can remember. The place near me that sells butter I like at a reasonable was out of both possible choices. I had about a one-second flash of "maybe I should get regular butter" but I decided I'd just wait to get the good stuff since I had enough for what I was making.

    Skin care products (Sephora)
    Shoes--not too expensive ones. Just more than I need!
    Sushi
    Going out to eat/drink


    These are all things I KNOW I don't really need and could save money on, but I do it anyway, and too often!

    I seriously covet things, but I don't actually spend much on myself. I think I'm utilitarian to a fault and pretty stingy - I love things like purses and jewelry, but I never buy them for myself or even really shop for them because I don't "need" them. I'll buy myself clothes every few months, but it's usually when I legitimately need something (can't wear jeans with holes in the butt to work, for example ;)) or if get to the point where I feel like I dislike too large a percentage of my wardrobe.

    I do spend a good bit on nice food and wine.

    Lately, I've been coveting new running shoes and running clothes. I just retired a pair of shoes, and I have another pair with over 400 miles on them which will probably be dead in about a month, so I kind of have an excuse to buy some right now and I'm chomping at the bit. AND some of my clothes starting to look pretty disgusting (yeah, I'm quite the fashion plate at the gym 8-)) so I have an excuse to buy some clothes too. Now if only I had an excuse to buy them at Lululemon....damn their cuteness and their exorbitant prices.

    The running stuff addiction helps to combat most of the negative aspects of food and wine :lol:

    Jeans, flip flops, work out clothes, running shoes, purses, jewelry, makeup, nail polish, lotions and potions. Things for the kitchen - knives, gadgets, herbs, spices, salts. I used to buy lots of Harley gear but I've sold most of that and haven't bought anything new in a long time.
    I buy things for my vehicles when I first get them. When I got the truck last year I got running boards, grille guard, seat covers, etc. I redecorated almost every room in the house last year so I bought loads of furniture and art work and such. This year I haven't had to buy any big items.
    --I'm located in Western PA.
    --I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, joined the forums in May 2005, started going grey in late 2005.
    --My hair is 3B with some 3A, currently at mid back length when dry,  texture-medium/fine, porosity-normal except for the ends which are porous, elasticity-normal.
    --My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, oils, honey, vinegar.

    Parking spots for lazy primadonnas who don't want to get their shoes wet.

    Sweaters...particularly those with buttons.

    Food...I need good quality food.

    Makeup, but I haven't found anything I'm completely thrilled about.

    Can you tell I am trying to spread my stuff out so I do not have a freaking laundry list of guilty pleasure spending.

    D'Ashi is still here and available if you're wanting to travel to buy a horse!!!!

    Very pretty though :)
    I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

    Gasoline for my car
    I could take transit, but the bus system here is pathetic.

    Safeway and Tall Grass Prairie Bakery
    I could shop more often at SuperStore, but I'd have to go at 7am (earlier on weekends). I may have to start grocery shopping at Walmart (shudder).

    Electronics
    Laptop, desktop, 2 tablets all purchased within 12 months. Except for getting a new cell phone, I think I'm okay for the next couple years.

    Manicures/pedicures
    Once I find the right salon, I'll be doing these monthly.

    Storage containers
    I've been inspired by organization gurus on Youtube to declutter and organize.

    Really nothing.

    Though some people would probably say my groceries and toiletries. I am very particular about ingredients in foods I buy, if it's not a fresh unprocessed item though the bulk of my groceries are not processed and organic or farm fresh. I also read all ingredients in my toiletries and don't buy typical drugstore brands because I don't want those ingredients on my body (teeth, hair, skin, etc).

    nothing in excess really.

    I do have a lot of purses, but I don't buy them so often anymore.

    I buy clothes for myself occasionally, but I keep things for 10+ years as long as their in good shape.

    I probably spend most money on toiletries and makeup. Hair treatments, face stuff, eye cream, makeup, and I get my nails done.

    And I buy a lot of books.

    I can't believe you all are considering these things GUILTY PLEASURES. Books? Healthy food? Clothing (flip flops, even?????)?

    I was expecting to read stuff like: cocaine, male prostitutes, Cuban cigars, vitamins made from ground up Chinese babies, the high roller table at the Sands, etc
