    Friday OT - Splurge Items

    Is there something on which you splurge, even though you know you shouldn't? Hats, video games, music, etc. What's your money-draining item?

    For me - clothes.

    Beer. Craft beers. If I see something I haven't tried, I need to buy it and try it.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Re: Friday OT - Splurge Items

    I want a new bike, I don't need one, but the one I really want is way too much money. I am having a hard time resisting just going and getting it today. So it is not a splurge, yet.

    Video games. I have way, way too many. But it's about the only thing I buy for myself, and we tend to live under our means in most other categories (smaller house, more basic car, etc).

    Re: Friday OT - Splurge Items

    My wife splurges on clothes and shoes, so there isn't any left for me...

    I'd say Craft Beer for me and random golf equipment, you'd think I was on the tour.

    Nice hotels.

    The Pattee (Perry). The Blackhawk (Davenport). The Savery (Des Moines).

    The Hotel at Kirkwood Center, run by Kirkwood students (Cedar Rapids).

    Next on my list is The Park Inn (Mason City), designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
