21. $800 for a front seat helicopter tour of Kauai for me and my wife! Totally worth it!

24. This may not seem like a lot of money to some but I weighed 287 lbs. I lost 100 lbs and my reward was a 300.00 pair of Frye boots. I had been drooling over them for years and finally scrimped and saved to buy them. I told my husband it was my food money. Lol. It was actually my cigarette money. I had quit smoking a year before that but still faithfully put away 7.00 a day. I figured that I could always find cigarette money when I smoked so I will keep finding it to save. I bought a Nintendo Wii that way too. I have never regretted it. Using those boots. I love them.

25. I spent $3000 for my wife to meet the backstreet boys and get front row seats. It is the best thing that has ever happened to her and the smile on her face after the show and look of pure bliss in someone who suffers often from anxiety was worth every cent.

26. My first university degree (but it was really my parent’s money that I wasted). I don’t do anything related to it now. I went back to get the degree that I wanted and everyone told me would be a waste of my potential afterward. I now work in that field and love it.

Moving away from home was one of the best things that happened to me because it allowed me to grow a lot as a person.

And also my road bike. 4 grand, but I love every second on it 🙂

27. Back in 2017 my family went on a road trip to Minnesota to visit my nana shortly before she passed. During our stay, I and my little sister went to the Mall of America and bought whatever the f**k we wanted. Big ice cream cones? Lego store souvenirs? Tickets to the aquarium? Fare for every indoor amusement park ride? A doll from the American Girl Store and eating an expensive lunch in the Store with your new doll sitting at the table with us? Yeah little sis it’s all yours. I dropped over $300 in that one mall trip but damn was it was one of our best shopping days ever, we still talk about it to this day.

28. Exactly one year ago I got my private pilot license. So much money went into to it, and now it costs a lot of money to keep it (by flying). I don’t regret it at all, a very cool feeling to go flying!

29. GE Opal nugget ice maker. Dang thing cost more than my car payment but, man oh man, I love nugget ice and I use it the heck out of it every day.

30. When I was younger I came into a sum of about $15k. I wasn’t very careful with the money and other than putting $5k down on the car, I blew the money here and there. But what I put the largest amounts toward were friends in need. I paid one friend’s power bill just before it got shut off. I helped another friend keep her water on. I never could keep my hands on money for long but I don’t regret having “wasted” it helping friends.
