    He was desperate to play with you and you refused? That’s pretty cold.

    Thanks.  :roll:  You obviously understood I was talking about "at a very young age" since it was quoted.

      In all fairness, you referenced his passing within the last few weeks and said "I am a rebel," implying that it could have been recently that you refused to play.

        Experiences.

        You can't take it with you. Pay into retirement, budget everything, but put a significant amount into travel and entertainment. I've never regretted paying for a trip or a sporting event or tickets to a park, etc. can't say the same for certain things I've bought over the years.

          To join the general theme - trips and experiences, particularly for my kids. I love having a membership for the local zoo and children's museum, and being able to take trips with the kids. Definitely a "want" not a "need" but those memories are more than worth it!

            Besides the hookers and cocaine you mean?

             

            Actually I am into craft beers but otherwise don't spend much.

              I look on craigslist every couple days, searching for the early 90s compact pickup of my dreams. Either a Nissan D21 or Toyota Truck. 4 cylinders. 5 speed Transmission. And it can't be lifted or lowered by some jackass.

               

              Even that's out of my budget as an M4, but in 2-4 years I'll have a couple thousand scraped together and will pull the trigger.

                Similar to above stuff mentioned.  Definitely great food, outings and experiences, travel, cars to a degree (I have a rule of having one nice car and one car payment, and the second car being paid off).

                 

                The only other thing I would add to what we splurge on is "home improvement":  we spend on having great furniture, appliances etc - things that we enjoy and keep for decades.  Well worth it as it is our castle and we spent time on it.  I do't even consider that splurging though as we buy stuff that is both beautiful and lasts.

                  If you consider your home a castle, you may be splurging...

                    haha!  Yes, definitely "splurging" on a home, no question.  But to us it's "high yield" as we love it and spend a lot of time there!  When I said castle I didn't mean a "mansion" LOL  We just like to make it feel like our safe haven that is cozy and nice.

                      Like somebody else mentioned: experiences with loved ones. You can't buy memories or relationships. All material goods lose its gold and glitter after on average two weeks.

                        I have a cleaning lady come to my house every other week. As a resident, it's kinda a splurge, but so worth it.

                          travel, without a doubt.  My wife and I love to travel (I do a little more than she does, actually) and we have loads of fond memories together.  It goes back to the old saw that experiences bring more happiness than things.  True for us, at least.

                            I’m a car guy, so after residency, maybe a few years into attending-hood, I’ll probably splurge a little a buy a slightly used luxary car (S class, 7series, ect).  I’d really love something like a Maserati, Benz AMG, Audi S7…but maybe in like 20 (10…haha) years  ? .  I’ll have to keep it a secret here because WCI folk will burn me at the stake.  ?

                             

                            Oh, and maybe a BOAT <img src=" />

                            So glad I'm not the only one!!! I always feel guilty for wanting to buy a fancy car since I know it is a depreciating asset.  Having said this, everyone has their vices!

                            To date - I have been able to hold off on buying one but unsure how long I can hold off... lol

                              On another note, after we finished paying off student/business loans, we have been loosening the purse strings a bit as well.   We travel with our little ones 3-4 times a year and do not skimp when we travel.  It is money well spent!

                                Garden stuff.... Now that sounds pretty affordable until one starts buying Kubotas!
