I just spent $19.95 to e-file my state tax return.

shoes. i am always looking for comfortable shoes and realize good shoes are expensive. i just bought myself a pair of Nike sneakers . I had borrowed these from a friend last week when we spent a day walking in NYC and my feet got so sore and painful - the shoes I wore were not suitable for walking a lot - I couldn't take another step. She gave these for me to try on and immediate relief! They have built in arches or something, I don't need any orthotics. They are light, like wearing socks and yet with a lot of support. I came home and did not even check the price and ordered. Love them.
I am planning a trip to India for us in the winter and I plan to fly business, which we never did before. My DH doesn't know yet :D
Greatest splurge: We rented a house for a month in the winter in LA near where my daughter lives . It is on the strand, wake up to ocean breeze steps away from the beach, and walking distance to grand kids. It is low season in LA and blizzard condition where we live. Still it is a bit of money but we loved it. May do it again.

We rarely eat out unless with friends or family, and even then I avoid chains. I cook at home and it is healthy and good.
This reply has nothing to do with money (even on this board)

I'm happy you like your Nike's. But Nike's aren't generally known as a quality product for the money. It could be exception for your foot, but I suggest you look around at an "expensive" store and see if you don't find something that isn't even better for the same money.... There are several brands than will run the same price, and you might find something that is even better than what you have found. Tough part about shoes is that they change the name but not the design, or the design but no the name.. So you really have to find something that works for you. Keep buying that one though, because the 2019 model won't be the same..

My splurging is mostly on dining and sporting activity.

Currently winding up a 12 stay in the Dordogne, and our daily splurge is lunch out. All but one evening has been dinner at home, but after lunch out we aren't very hungry in the evening. Lunch is usually the menu of the day, and runs 18-25 euro. Fantastic 3 course lunch, sometimes with wine included.

In 2 days we're back to reality.

:shock: Isn't "splurge" subjective and always costs money? Seems to me you have something going on there with Nike. I always buy NB sneakers at the outlet store near me. Buying Nike at full price is a splurge for me. I and my feet love my new Nikes, thank you.
PS: Actually I have no idea what you are talking about,

Had an car accident with no one hurt. The 2007 hybrid Camry needs more work than it is worth. So my splurge is on a new one to replace current one. I will be looking this week and next. I am going with new in order to get the safety features coming with new vehicles.

Cars and travel.

We take a 1.5-2 week trip every year to somewhere overseas, stay in fairly nice hotels, and typically eat out and fly everywhere instead of taking a train/bus/etc. My logic is if we're going all that way, better to take a 1-2hr flight than spend half a day on a train - you're wasting time on your vacation trying to save money (typically short flights are cheap anyway) unless the ride is scenic. Likewise with food - to me, eating the food where you are is part of the experience, and I'm also wasting precious time trying to grocery shop and cook something good, if I even have the facilities to do so. Wouldn't want to go to Paris and miss out on the amazing pastries and delicious dishes!

For cars, I only drive 7k miles/yr but drive a 2011 BMW M3 which gets 15mpg. Unnecessary but I love it, and it's a great and practical daily driver plus weekend fun car. I also go to the track 1-2x/yr. That typically entails $800 of expenses (~$250 track fee, ~$100 in gas, ~$150 worth of brake wear, ~$150 of tire wear, $150 in fluid changes, hopefully no damage from off-track excursions) but it's a blast that usually ties me over for the next several months to a year. I also have a "fun car fund", which is an account that I've started diverting a portion of my bonuses and raises toward with the goal of buying something very nice in ~4 years from now.

Other than these two (big) things, I really don't spend money on much.

I put 93 octane in my beloved truck. There are those on here who say it makes no difference. But my truck says thank you every time. I have a very grateful truck. And oh BTW it was at Costco for $2.47 a gallon so it wasn't that un-frugal....
What kind of truck? If 87 is recommended, it will actually run better on 87. Higher octane only makes the fuel more difficult to combust to it can be used in high-compression engines. If your engine isn't tuned for that, it will actually have less power and get lower MPG, so you are literally throwing your money away twice in the price at the pump and the lower MPG.

Purchased the largest and most expensive home we have ever owned, a five minute walk to the ocean.
Keep on putting more money into the house.
The latest is a swimming pool.

I mostly splurge on weird hobbies. I spent $25 getting a couple of very rare seeds that may not even germinate (chances are approximately 3 in 100 seeds!)

I spent more than $2,000 banking the DNA (one-time cost - no freezing required) of some of my elderly relatives, since I think it's a safe bet that future technological breakthroughs will allow science to unlock ancestral/genealogical and other biological mysteries.

I have a small but valuable collection of rare genealogical books and have been researching which library to donate them to. Unfortunately I can't give them to the library operated by the Mormons as I am morally opposed to some of their positions, otherwise it would be a simple decision. I guess if I did not intend to donate them, they would not have counted as a splurge as they have appreciated in price far beyond the S&P500.

Yeah, that one confused me as well. Unless it is tuned for premium, which as a pickup is almost unheard of, it will actually perform worse with the higher octane fuel. Hey, the thread is asking for the "un-frugal" thing you do, so Boogieknight may be the winner.

I am taking a class in photography at a community college. I have been buying some rather cheap, junky umbrellas to try them out. I also bought a cheap speed light that has take me hours to assemble. I bought some new prime lenses and the order the new Nikon D7500 to replace my D7100.

I bought a powerball lottery ticket today. Less with the hope of winning, and more the fun I have daydreaming of what I could do if I won... Backdoor Roth IRAs ($5500 or $11000 if married) would seem trivial compared to >$100m. But pretty sure I'd still do it.

I will buy a ticket once or twice a year when jackpot gets high. Both un-frugal and un-bogleheads. I am comfortable with this.

Yep. I don't hesitate to buy Japanese products either.
There is/was generally a fine level of craftsmanship in most Japanese made consumer goods.

Not so with Chinese made junk which is simply made with little regard to quality, safety or even humane standards.
So my iPhone is junk? Funny how I remember 30 years (well maybe 40 now😁) where we all said the same stuff about Japanese quality. At certain level you get what you pay for. I will stack up a 700 Chinese phone(iPhone) versus Korean (Samsung) versus Japan(Sony). The Chinese and the rest make low quality goods for the people who want cheap stuff. They also have world class manufacturing if you want to spend the money

GTX 1080 graphics card for my computer I built in August 2016. It was the best graphics card on the market at the time (the GTX 1080TI wasn't available yet), and so it cost me $699. Now, 1.5 years later, one would expect computer hardware to fall in price, but due to Bitcoin miners, the GTX 1080 cost $1000 recently. With Bitcoin cooling down, the price is now much closer to what I paid in 2016. My high-end RAM did the same thing.

Primary residence: Bought in early 2009 at $298K (not cheap). Now its market value is over $500K (glad we did). This about 4,500 sq ft suburban home gives us immense joy and a very comfortable living space which is only several minutes away from my work. This is probably going to be the best purchase in my life!

I try to avoid buying things. But I suppose I could say "my home". None are cheap and it has been a good investment.

Our cars were cheap as cars go, but all cars are expensive. Ours throughout the years have been durable, safe and reliable, so happy about that.

Other than that- far from cheap but well worth it- we paid for our kids' educations. No way to know whether things would have worked out as well or better had we taken a less expensive approach, but we are as happy as can be with what they got. In spite of the cost, we consider it a bargain.

I love Kinsale, Ireland's cut glass tumblers, glasses and other items. Basically, they use designs similar to Waterford crystal but in the heavier form no longer typically (Ever?) used by Waterford. A whisky, not Whiskey since Scotland and Ireland do not use the "e", tumbler is approximately $75, plus shipping, drinking glass $85. Fun to collect different sizes in numbers, makes any drink taste better, gives a simple suggestion for others looking for a gift to give, and is on sale in January of each year for 20% off. Also, will leave a nice set of crystal ware as a family heirloom. Absolutely love the items, and they allow an ongoing luxury purchase without a large outlay at one time. They are much more appreciated than a lake house we formerly owned at less than 1% of the cost.

Bose QC35

I use them at work, really helps me stay focused / isolates noise. Also helpful in air travel. Usually I'd think 30$ on headphones are about as much as I want to spend, but these headphones are totally worth it.

My Herman Miller Aeron desk chair. I work from home and was really screwing up my back and neck with the crappy chair I had before. I bought the Aeron chair used and it was still about $400 if I remember correctly. I got it with a year left on its warranty and was able to get a bunch of stuff fixed on it for free, and it basically works like new.

Home x1000. Bought in the insanely priced SF Bay area at the low. I wish I could say I was prescient, but I nearly talked my wife out of buying, so I can take no credit. :oops:

Bose QC35

I use them at work, really helps me stay focused / isolates noise. Also helpful in air travel. Usually I'd think 30$ on headphones are about as much as I want to spend, but these headphones are totally worth it.

Dyson V8 cordless vac
Spinner carry-ons (a larger Tumi and a smaller Briggs and Riley)
Good-quality furniture (my favorites include Room and Board's Dalton recliner and Elton bookshelf)
