I have never cared that much for posessions, but I will pay crazy amounts of money for an experience. I would never ever EVER buy say.. a couch, over taking a trip. If it can be purchased, it can usually be replaced, so it doesnt have that high of value to me. Required items like food, I will bargain hunt like a mofo. I like 2nd hand stores for clothing. I am the kind of person that will take 80% of my paycheck and put it towards a cruise.. then live on mac n' cheese and cup o noodles for 8 days. I have rationalized paying my rent a week late so I could buy concert tickets for me and my closesy friends. There are only a few things that I will pay high price for, parfuum, certain foods, and gifts to friends or family. I can't stand being a cheapscate socially, and when I see other people do it I *cringe*. It is so unbecoming to me, I don't know why.
