I’ve spent over 100k getting Mrs P1 pregnant. So yeah my son due later this year. By the time he’s an adult, assuming no health worries, he’ll have cost a small fortune. Plus we’re hoping to have another.

Though arguably as a single line item it was the wedding. Mrs P1 cost ~300k. Worth it.

In terms of actual stuff that’s not a car or house would have to be a watch at ~35k.


Like I said, to each their own. We have different mindsets.

I donated oxygen machines this year that was the most expensive thing I bought from personal budget although not for me

Other than that - got a personal massage day for 600…iPhone is installment so doesn’t count as big purchase


Wow, only one decent person here! Good on you!

I didn’t purchase her, but having a wife is incredibly expensive.


Male here. Also do not want to ever get married again. The legal/financial process was way too painful - far more than emotional.


Vacations by far. Upward of $30k a pop for a week of paradise.

My boxers and socks may have holes in them, but I love my house, cars, and vacations.


To prior posts, I’m currently working 60%.

Did you actually buy it? Looks like you’re at the store. Nice watch, it has everything you need except for a month indicator.

$80K used (someone else paid $200K new, glad it wasn’t me).

So you don’t feel alone, I have 24 ft four winns. My in laws have a 42 ft carver. I’m very aware this is a depreciating asset but the joy it brings my family is worth it. My in laws plan on staying on their boat for an extended time during retirement


Probably my espresso machine for about $3500.


What a coincidence I’m a getting a double boiler with my bonus this year! I have a eureka mignon Specialita as my grinder and am happy. Total setup will be about 2500 though

$5600 for daycare for 4 kids under 5


Deloitte Digital 1- I am the mom. Why are you asking me why I would have 4 kids? Dumb ass question LOL. Bc I wanted to....


Watches and firearms - 3 watches at ~10k+ and a couple rifles at the 3500k+ range


C1. You spent 3.5 million dollars on rifles?


I bought a Canada goose jacket that was like $1,000. So probably that.


Kirkland socks have lasted much longer than I thought but it may be time to buy some new ones ☺️

road bike $4k


G5- that’s a great deal on an SL5


Hair transplant, $13.5k


Approximately 3000! It took around 6 hours.


Education - Mba loans total about $130k


Nonprofit donations… ~6k/year


I counted it as buying because I find significant value in those organizations continued existence—despite the more ephemeral nature of the purchase. (Well, the occasional gala tickets they send your way as a “patron” can be nice… but that’s not why I do it.)


Aside from a vehicle... I spent $2k on mobile gaming in a calendar year 😬


Used to play FGO but dropped it after I realized how money hungry they are ($$$ for a jpeg lmao). Spent prob $200 on that game. Honestly mostly SWGOH and a bit of Era of Chaos.

$7K mountain bike, $3.5K road bike.


Flights for models from Canada, Miami, and Texas into LA


C5 you a sugar daddy? 👀

Beyond the car and home, I have splurged on a few watches:
Daytona 116520LN
Hulk 116610LV
Batman 116710BLNR
Kermit 16610LV
Bluesy 116613LB
Sub 126610LN
Omega planet ocean 1972
JLC MUT Moonphase
Tudor Black Bay Bronze


JLC for the win!

Hey Everyone! I am taking a leave of absence from work this summer to finish grad school and I am thinking of moving to LA for the summer. Does anyone here know anyone who has lived in any of the co-living spaces? How was your experience? They seem to be flexible & affordable and have a good community so not sure if it’s too good to be true or not.

How do you politely turn down a job offer or back out of interview at last step without burning bridges? After meeting the hiring manager and stakeholders I don’t think we’re a good fit. This job also requires relocation. I don’t want to take a job and uproot my life for something that isn’t the right fit. I’m currently unemployed so feeling a bit desperate but also don’t want to move for something that isn’t right. Thanks!

How do you negotiate salaries through external recruiters? Do they actually help you or do they try to lowball you?
