Ok, well since I did a post for the things you regret, how about the things you don’t regret spending a chunk of change on.
1. Tiffanys mesh band ring (I wear it everyday!)
2. Seven A jeans (I had these for four years before I had to get rid of them because they were so worn in….I should get another pair ! haha)

I spent $300 on a pair of Chanel Sunglasses. Everyone thought I was crazy b/c they are plastic.
But let me say, i bought these babies 5 years ago and I still LOVE them and LOVE wearing them! Now thats money well spent!

@AnnieAAA: I have a pair of Chanel sunglasses too. And I’ve also had them about 3 years now and have no plans to replace them with something else.

Lately I’ve been thinking my foam roller is the best $20 I’ve spent in a long time. I’d been putting off spending money on one forever and got a good deal… that thing has done wonders for my knee pain and IT band.
I also bought my fiance a sweatshirt on an impulse buy. We were at a college football game at his school, he got cold, and I got him a sweatshirt at the stadium. It cost 60 or 70 bucks but is so warm and comfy and he wears it almost every day… unless I steal it.

I bought a classic Louis Vuitton bag the day I graduated college. Granted it was only two years ago, but that bag has paid for itself, over and over, with as often as I use it! It truly was a splurge, but definitely worth it!

Our apartment! People always say we’re wasting money by spending so much on rent, but it’s really only $300-$400/month more than the average for our area and I love our home. I’m looking at this view of the ocean from my desk as I’m working from home right now. We also get a free gym and olympic sized pool to boot!

The $5 I spent on a laser pointer to play with our dog was the best $5 I’ve spent in a while. She’ll chase that silly red light back and forth and back and forth and back and forth (you get the idea…) accross the apartment and then she’s all worn out and calm for a while. Plus, it hilarious to watch her try to catch/eat the light! 🙂

My Rav 4! When I first bought it, it was way out of my budget. It was about my annual salary at the time and it was the most basic model. Well several years later its still running strong, getting me through the snow, hauling my bikes, hauling dogs. I’m glad I splurged on a car I can drive for years and years rather than buying something I hated but could afford and then trading it in the moment I got a promotion.

@AnnieAAA: I did the same thing, its been 3 years and I still love them!

My Pottery Barn (outlet) couch. It’s over five years old and I just had a friend ask if it was brand new (thanks to the washable everydaysuede covers)!

My 4-Runner, my two Tiffany rings (i bought them about 10 years ago and wear them at least 5x a week, my Dolce & Gabana black Jackie O-type sunglasses and moving to a new apartment (rent is about $200 more a month, my commute was extended a bit, but it’s a new apartment complex and in a much safer neighborhood).

My and SO’s bed. I bought the mattress and boxframe, and he bought the metal frame and the linens.
I paid about $2300 and it is seriously the best investment I ever made. It’s king size, so there’s tons of space for both of us, and it literally sucks your energy out as soon as you lay your head down. EVERY night we find ourselves saying, “God, I love this bed.”
When we have friends visit they always want to lay down on the bed. It’s that good.

My iPad, a pair of Dior sunglasses (10 years old and still look fab 🙂 plus a $400 Dualit toaster. Not the most exciting purchase but it’s lasted a really long time and it looks like a piece of art on my kitchen counter 🙂
