    I have nice car, a nice home, a nice stereo, but I think character is the best asset one can have. Having nice things but no soul is a waste of money and time.

    I am willing to spend more money on some things but usually just because I think buying one quality item will, in the long run, cost less than buying a cheaper version repeatedly. I guess I am most willing to shell out some extra dough for ski equipment, which makes me wonder why it seems okay to pay over $500 for ski boots that I wear only a few time a year but it pains me to pay just $300 for shoes that I wear to work every week.

    If I could buy a slightly used luxury apartment at Goodwill, I would.

    I hope nobody honestly answers 'yes' to this question.

    I wear jeans. hoodies and sneakers, am underpaid or not well paid, depending on who you ask, live in a rental, and don't know how to drive. And my bike needs some repairs after the last wipeout. So yes, I am the complete package. [​IMG]

    I am a college student in living in a dorm broom closet and living off instant noodles in order to fund my clothing habit.

    In a word: yes.

    What he said (but its been a long time coming and a hard road to boot -- all one step at a time).

    I love what I do, and I don't feel like I'm wasting my life.
    That goes a long way in my opinion.

    Seems to me most of the responders are at least at a comfortable station in life. We all seem to share a disproportionate attraction to fine clothes and some of their higher costs, but hey, that why we belong on this forum [​IMG]

    Personally I love fine things in life, but I've learned to bargain hunt and buy quality. I have a car that gets me to places, a roof over my head, and am not starving for food. Once in a while I splurge on a jacket or that damn fine pair of Crockett&Jones. I do not let material possessions define who I am. Family (wife and kids) comes first.

    i am inclined to purchase the, uhm, "finer things in life" or at least testing how much my financial capacity can hold. but then i do not deny myself some of the things that i enjoy that others might find beneath them: cheap beer, a rowdy bar, professional wrestling, hanging out in the mall, the strip club....
