Building on from the post about economy brands and which are NOT worth it I wondered what folks have squandered money on needlessly. Myself, well after a bit of a ropey time recently I spent rather a lot of money (which I don't have - yikes!) on an original piece of art. I looked at this painting and truly fell in love. I have "wasted" the money as there are other much more practical things I need but something pulled at my heart. I will collect the painting this week and I know everytime I look at it it will remind me that I came through an awful period of time and found "me" again. I still think: "Ooops what have I done?" but I'm not sure I necessarily squandered the money. Please fellow TESers tell me what you have spent a large sum of money on to help me feel less frivolous!
