    For me it's sleep quality (bed, pillows, etc), food quality (real food, limit processed, organic doesn't matter to me), exercise quality (paying for a gym membership), travel quality (I take the nonstop flight, rather than the indirect, discount flight), and everyday quality (clothes, bathroom supplies, furniture, entertainment) My wife and I have a king bed. Do we *need* a king bed? No. But I sure get a better night's sleep. I don't eat healthy all the time, but if i don't want to cook and have a craving for mac&cheese, I'm gonna pay extra to get beechers than some frozen crap from the store. My apartment has a gym, but I can't deadlift in there, so I pay for a gym membership. I take nonstop flights whenever I'm traveling (if possible) so I don't miss a beat when I arrive at my destination. Everyday supplies like toilet paper, a couch you love to sit on, and gaming systems if you're into that. I'm not going to play Candy Crush just because it's free. I'd much rather play Horizon Zero Dawn on PS4. And I spent the $120 on an electric toothbrush, because it makes a regular toothbrush feel caveman-esque. I never have to worry about my upcoming dentist appointment.

    Disclaimer: *max* money doesn't necessarily mean better. Take the nonstop flight, but first class doesn't pass my cost to benefit test.

    Tl;dr I buy things if they positively benefit my life, regardless of cost. tl;dr example: don't skimp on toilet paper.

      Do you fly premium economy or economy?

      I try to fly premium economy because of better food and snacks.

      I'm still bitter airlines created a premium economy at all. But that's for a different thread. To me it's not worth the cost difference. If I was 6 ft tall I would probably take premium for the space for $100 more or whatever it is for that flight, but for the most part I stay in economy and buy whatever food I want and still won't reach the difference in cost. I'm still stingy at heart, but not at the cost of my own well-being. I'll spend more to save a few hours (taking the non-stop), but if I can get the same food experience in economy for less overall I'll take economy.

      Doesn’t make sense to pay extra and get to your destination the same time as the other plebeians.

      But their timeline is lit, and all the networking with random recruiters. Sorry, you're missing a lot.

    When going to a theme park like Disney or LEGO land, stay at the resort hotel. Not nearby hotels.

    When buying clothes, don’t buy at target or kohl’s. At least buy from Macy’s with name brand. Buy good shoes and pants. Not saggy cheap ones. Your dating life will be better tenfold. Basically don’t be cheap with clothing.

    Your tc does not matter when looking for a girl. What you wear matters. And your confidence. Girls notice the smallest thing. Wear brand perfume. Not the one you got from India. Wear at least $200 sunglasses.

      Aqua gio and code by Armani would be a good start. Polo black, jimmy choo, ysl has several.

      Just a question - hope you don't mind. Are you Indian?

      What's with aqua di gio and Indians? I almost predicted your reply.

    • Oracle ForcedT
      No I am not. Your preference will certainly be different. Choice of perfume depends on your food habit. What you eat controls your body odor. For Indian origin stronger perfumes fit better. You don’t have to agree with me though. That’s what I think.

      Besides, gio is the most sold perfume at Macy’s. It’s an easy choice.

    I pay extra to rent a luxury apartment which is close to work and has amenities like a full fledged gym making it convenient for me.
    Ultimately it’s a personal choice.

      That’s one of the worst financial decisions you could ever make in your life. Sinking years of money in an overpriced luxury apt.

      I plan to do this for year on my next lease. Hopefully it’s worth it. How much do you pay?

    Good healthy food.
    Good health.
    Good mattress and bed as you spend 6-8 hours of your 24 hours sleeping.
    Good car if you commute in a car and spend 1 hour of your day in that.
    Good computer if you are a techie.
    Good phone.
    Good shoes as you spend 8+ hours wearing them.
    Good experiences - travelling, shows, etc. as that is really what you have as memories.

    Help, money is easier to come by than time. So have someone that cleans house, washes clothes, shops for groceries, cooks, etc.

    Financial independence is the biggest as you no longer worry about money for rest of your life. After that you are free to spend as much as you earn and buy all luxuries from your earnings
