    Craft beer and higher end liquor (e.g. High West) but I don't really spend much on it as even better stuff drunk at home is cheaper than swill at a bar or restaurant

    I also buy a lot of books for my kindle now rather than checking out from the library, but it doesn't add up to much compared to my income

    I love to eat out and I love to shop.
    My husband is frugal but he loves tools and his garage!

    Yes, but Kubota is really fun.  Had one when I lived on a hobby farm in PA.  If you are on the Kubota, you are doing work, and can in no way be criticized

    I overspend on rescued animals.  Currently one dog, TNTC cats, and one donkey.  We have some rural property which is where the most of the cats and donkey live. I may adopt a second dog this weekend.

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

    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!

    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

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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.
