You paid what for your wedding? Why??
50k€

I wanted to enjoy it. I wanted a beautiful honeymoon in a far off place. I wanted to best food and the best entertainment.

I don’t see the big deal. I didn’t take any loans. I didn’t bankrupt myself. I had an amazing time and it just took tightening my belt for a year.

My Gibson Les Paul Junior guitar at £860 which is a 2010 model. I really don't like the 2019 model. It looks very similar but has a glossy finish instead of satin and the orange is a bit brighter.

Also, my guitar came with both a P90 + P100 pick up where as the 2019 comes fitted with a P90. I have the P100 installed at the moment but thinking about putting the original P90 in it. Oh and the 2019 model cost £1,200 so yeah.....i love my 2010 model!

Not my guitar just a random picture from google to show what it looks like. The second picture is the 2019 model:

I stopped playing guitar 5 years ago. A les paul was my goal, but I could never rationalise it.
I would love to pick it back up again.

I just bought a niceish propane grill from a Lowes for just under $200. After a clearance sale and my grandfather's military discount I saved about $80. Granted $200 isn't that expensive, but it's about my limit for a relatively impulse buy.

Most expensive? My home... 87k managed to pay it in cash at 21 yo, I'm so proud of myself
Damn, what job you do?!

I'd show it to you, but I don't want to people knowing where I live.
You can take a general picture without anyone knowing anything about where you live. No one can identify your location from the direction of the blades of grass in a picture.

Well it would be upgrading my PC but I can't get a AMD 3900x at the moment for a reasonable price because the retailers are price gouging fuckers.

Bought some nice chukka boots at khols for 50 bucks. It was something to change up my shoe/boot game to dress better.

Dude, I love Kohls. That's where I got my gym cloths. I love how when you go up to the register something that you bought will be on sale and you had no idea.

Haha my man. I bought some Levi's in their clearance section for half the price! They got some good deals and not only that they gave me 10 bucks store credit for future purchases. Will look into gym clothes there now lol.

I don't spend much money.

I bought a cheapish car last year for £6k which I intend to sell next year and buy a nicer car for around £15k

I really need to take the plunge and buy a house next year but I currently live in a nice big house and pay minimal rent so I'm not that bothered.

I'm also going away on two holidays to the US this year (for two weeks each time).

I mostly just spend my money on food, drugs, sex and holidays.

Well, I had to buy a new car, my beloved BMW E36 Compact was just beyond recovery, but now I have a nice old Mercedes Benz C180E, crusing never felt better. Price of the new car = 1800 € (yes, I was very lucky).

Beside that, new Magic Cards for an upcoming tournament next month (around 60 €).

$10,400 for a roof this year (would have been more, my brother did it for cost of materials and crew to put it on)
~$20,000 for wood floors, carpet, drywall, and a new kitchen (kitchen is still in process)

$6,000 for family trip to Disneyland in June (also visited several national parks)

Finally bought a 4K TV, one of those Samsung QLEDs, got a PS4 Pro to go with it and a Canon EOS Rebel T6 DLSR Camera for reference photos for graphic novel work. It set me back a few thousand, but my old tv I gave to my parents along with my old PS4 so they can actually give me back my original PS3 and they can do streaming stuff and the DLSR is needed for work, so it gave more value then just the price alone.

I guess it would be my revamp of my Theater Speakers. Replacing my Polk Monitor 50s with Klipsch R820F Fronts with an R34C center along with Surrounds and Atmos Speakers. So probably 1600 in equipment I guess. Along with a few movies to mess with.

You should.

Les Pauls are works of art, I have all my guitars on the walls as they look so cool. I don’t have a favourite but I do love playing les Pauls.

Some 6k € for my wedding last year.
My wedding cost about the same in uk money, but I had a mother in law and wife combo who pointed out everything that wasn’t perfect and complained and we got a full refund. We’ve put the money towards fixing up the house some more.
