Im 28 (in 4 days!!!) and looking back the only things I can say I am really glad I purchased are: Quality mattress. Cannot stress this enough. Quality Knife and Pan(s) Cast Iron grill pan Ipod Retirement savings PS - my couches and have had nothing but drinks spilt on them, people passed out on them and vomit projectiled onto them. Plus, they'd be a bitch to move. If your settled down then get nice ones. If your a regular 20 something, get something used thats comfortable and not too ugly. Sofas should be clean. You don't need be finally laying down, going for the kill on some beezy you've been working on for a week, when you get a waft of your friends puke come up from your sofa cushion. Stay leather and easy cleanable with spray cleaner and a damp cloth, and if you think you can ball like Fuuma, get a repro LC3. Spend enough on them and you will feel compelled to move them.
