I went slightly above budget on my apartment rent and so happy I did! It is my first and last apartment living by myself, so it was worth it 🙂
After reading this thread, I regret not buying the B.Makowsky boots that were on QVC last week. They would have been a good investment! lol

Does my house count? Blew the budget on it by about 20%, but totally love it – every empty room… since I didn’t leave any money to furnish it with!
And I still looooove my red lv wallet I got over two years ago. I’ve used it everyday since I got it, and it still looks brand new.

My bedding out here. The best buy ever! I bought really really soft sheets, a great pillow, mattress pad/top, a down comforter and duvet cover. LOVE IT! After 16hrs at work, I get back to my room, jump in bed and fall right to sleep. And hopefully I’ll never use it again after I get back home. 🙂

Good thread. I didn’t have any big ticket money regrets so I’m glad to see this one.
1. My Dooney purses, I keep wearing them, over and over again!
2. My house, I was nervous when I paid that much money to someone, but the benefit of no house payment comforts me each day when I come home and comforts me for our future.

@MacFaniam24: Kingsdown is the brand, Beethoven is the model. I don’t know if they make the Beethoven anymore, but you should seriously take a look at the Kingsdown mattresses the next time you need to buy a bed. This is their website: www.kingsdown.com

My dog! People think its ridiculous how much i spent on him, but ever since i decided to become a dog owner i knew a French Bulldog was for me…
And the fact that he makes me laugh every single day with his goofy personality, and loves me no matter what- makes him worth every single penny 🙂

@MacFaniam24: At Bloomingdales at the change of season they will have the last season colors on sale, it is never black or the navy color but either way they will have great deals IMO and the small bags work so great for things like makeup for traveling and what not.

@BellBride OMG, he is precious!!!
The best thing I’ve spent money on was the delivery fee for groceries when I lived in Manhattan – it was worth an extra $10 not to schlep 70lbs of cat litter up the stairs!

This is such a fun post!
My favorite things include: my yellow lab, my IPhone, my laptop, and our new, Tempurpedic bed. The bed cost over 3K, but it honestly feels amazing and I wake up feeling so well rested. Oh, and, our wedding of course!!

Private university for grad school. At around $2500 per class, it’s pricey as anything, but it has been a fantastic experience, I’ve learned so much and I’ve met lots of people happy to recommend me for jobs.

My tan leather boots I bought in Spain almost 3 years ago! They only cost around 40 Euro and they lasted me through two Boston winters! They’re so warm and cute, my roommates used to steal them all the time!

My thermarest is BY FAR the best $75 I’ve ever spent. It was a lot of money for me to spend at the time (1998), and I really considered getting a cheaper sleeping pad, but my sister talked me in to spending the money. Twelve years later, I still go camping at least once a month, and I still sleep on my same purple thermarest!
