There has been an interesting discussion going on in this thread
about why and how and what people shop for. The conversation has turned to what are known as luxury items, things not necessary, more, sometimes much more, expensive than than a similar item but at a hgher quality.
There is also an emotional attachment to the item, that goes beyond, “I like it.” It is more like this, “I love it and now that I have it, I can’t live without it.”
So, I was curious, what kind of luxury items do you folks have? And, because luxury items are cost prohibitive, what did you NOT buy so that you could buy the luxury item? Where do you cut back?
I got a sweet Asus notebook recently that is like a part of my bone structure now. What did I give up? Not much, I’ve been too busy working to spend money, although I didn’t invest my usual amount in the stock market when I bought it.
So, any takers?
