I've reached a point in life where I have decent expendable cash

My income is not enough to invest in property or anything like that

But I could splash comfortably on lifes pleasures if I wanted to

Say you won 10k. What would you spend it on?

Where does your money usually go?

Yes personal thread is personal

There’s an old joke: “I spent all my money on wine, women and song. The rest... I just pizzed away...”

Somewhere where's it's none of your business
Use a portion of that 10k to book a unit of apartment that's just launched in the vicinity of a shopping complex or any other similar public places.

And then when all the units been sold out, place an advert to sell it off before its completion.

Earn another 10k in the process.

If I were to spend it on frivolous things it would probably be a sailboat of some kind, or travel. But that said, I don't really feel the need to spend money on things nowdays, I'd most likely invest it.

Depends on what your goals happen to be more long term. I'd take an extra 10K and pay off a house (yes I have property that 10K would pay off).

Beyond that I'd focus on experiences rather than things. I'm at a place in life where I have enough funds to cover the necessary things and so I'll sometimes spend on various things. Pieces of art or jewelry that I enjoy looking at or wearing, good clothes and shoes, but all that is still "stuff". Right now I'm weighing getting a higher end more stylish car for example, and beyond that I like going to great places with great people, maybe concerts or weekend trips or longer trips. Maybe high end food or wine. Entertainment. Experiences.

That's aside from family/kid oriented stuff. I take good care of my kiddos and sometimes splurge on them if they are making great grades and being responsible young people.

If you buy things buy quality things. You'll pay more initially but you'll have them longer and you'll get more value for your dollar. I have dresses and shoes for example that I've had 20+ years that are still in style and that still get Wow factor compliments when I am out. I have some Gucci shoes that I've owned prior to getting married that I used to wear to my ex husband's nightclub in the 1990s. Its always fun to tell people that when they notice those shoes, lol.

You can always replace things. Things are just things. Memories are where it's at. I'll have great stories to tell when I'm truly an old lady. ;)

I gamble like a m—-f——. I lost $30,000 yesterday. $20,000 on one site. $5,000 on another and $5,000 on another. It was painful.

It’s cost me relationships and I get lonely but hey, what can you do? Please don’t say join social groups with women in it. :rolleyes:

I'd plan a lavish road trip overseas visiting different theme parks with business class flights there & back, and rent something unnecessarily fast and impractical to drive on Turo.

Queue skip passes every park, every day.

I like to travel for no reason whatsoever on my leisure time. Like for example, I just blew a bunch of money just to buy a Mackbook, bought some clothes, and rent out a hotel near a college campus just so i could wake up a couple of mornings to go to the coffee shop across the street from the hotel, do some work, and then take a stroll around the college campus- in another city. Just so I could socialiZe with the people and women in that area. Like a mini vacation.

I call it splice of life. One weekend I could be in a dive bar in San Francisco talking to a woman about obscure bands, and another weekend I could be doing work in a coffee shop at Harvard- lecturing to girls about the pros and cons of getting an mba, and then infiltrating my way into some college parties.

One time I booked a weekend stay at a hotel in New York but never left my room. Just spent the entire time drinking scotch and contemplating life. And oddly I found it very satisfying. It gives me a feeling of refreshment on Monday mornings knowing that I had some adventure.

I also like to book hotels in cities I’ve never been before and just going there and not having any type of plans whatsoever. For me it’s kind of like being in an office outside the office. Just doing work at a random coffee shop in a bumble fvck city somewhere. There is something I find therapeutic about it.

In a way, it’s kind of like gaming/socializing, but instead of going to different venues, I go to different cities.

I personally would spend it on another hair transplant to add more density to my hairline.

I'm also planning on getting gynocomastia surgery to remove my breast tissue and lipo out stubborn chest fat.... My goal is to make my chest as squared and flat as possible.

I'm in my mid 30s and have passed the desire for material junk. I'd rather invest my time and money to look as best I can.

Looksmaxxing is my new hobby....

Looks, Money and Status....what every man should focus his attention.....

high interest savings account (only 2% but just forget you have it until a crash all the while researching what you'd buy in a econ downturn) Abraham Lincoln (don't like the fvcker but he said it) said, "Give me 6 hours to cut down a tree and I'll spend 4 hours sharpening the axe."
