What's the best thing you ever spent money on?

July 13th, 2007 at 09:21 pm

Dh and I were just talking about our Sleep Number (Select Comfort) bed. We LOVE it!! We purchased it from the company more than 5 years ago and purchased one that had been returned for some reason (cheaper than brand new, but still has a 20-yr warranty).

Anyway, neither one of us regrets spending $600+ on it. It has been worth every penny. When we were on vacation, my back was acting up terribly. Traditional beds are too hard and have no "give". I was SO happy to get back to my bed.

So what have you spent money on that you have no regrets about, and why??

    My bedroom set. We paid $1500 for a solid pine mission style king-size bed (headboard, footboard and frame), solid pine dresser that is five feet tall and five feet wide, with good-sized drawers and a matching pine framed mirror that runs the length of the top of the dresser. It is gorgeous, it gets used every day, it will last the rest of my life and it will be passed on and still be functional for use by my descendants.

    I've had it two years now and I have never once regretted the purchase. I was so sick of do it yourself cardboard and pressboard furniture, and consider this a life-long investment in quality. I hope to one day get the matching armoire with space for a television but that was a luxury addition and I wasn't going to spend the extra on it at the time.

    Hmmm...it's a tie between my computer and digital camera. I spent $150 on this computer and it will allow me to make money from and do stuff for school. My digital camera allows me to document my son's life!

    My washer and dryer. I now have LG front loaders. Got the pedestals and all. A big splurge for us but worth every penny. Prior to purching this I was propping my dryer door closed. Smile And now I can get (what used to be considered) a weeks worth of laundry done in one day. Oh, and my water and electric bill have gone down.

    My house in Utah. For $60K I got a 2bdrm,2bath,living rm,family rm,rv garage,rec rm,large kitchen and tool shed....all on a quarter acre. And that was only 2yrs. ago. Prices have jumped so much here (Washington County,UT) there's no way we can ever find something like this again. Smile

    I can tell I would have answered this question differently, depending on my age. These days, it seems to be a toss up between real estate & travel.
    Any traveling I have done will always be in my memory bank which gives it a slight lead. Property will eventually be sold, passed along to kids, etc and not something I'm willing to be responsible for as I get older.
    Traveling also gave me such an understanding of myself, my priorities and other cultures. Nothing like leaving home to really be grateful when you return!

    My relationship with NT, who lived in the UK. Poured money into airfare, phone calls, care packages etc. But now that we're together, we're being frugal to make up for the fiscal progress lost. We needed to be together, so any amount of debt would have been worth it!
