The most expensive thing you bought this year?

Recommended Posts

I bought a gaming chair for 300 bucks.The old one I have aptly broken, and it was expensive, about 1,000 bucks. Because of this, I was afraid to buy a cheap chair, because I thought it would be terrible. I had nothing to do, because I didn't have much money then I bought it. But I was wrong. Here is a photo of this wonderful chair.gt-racing-gaming-chair-gt-racing-gaming-chair-gtracing-high-back-gaming-chair-review.jpg.6d0c5341ffa0edf4687625f3de49bc5a.jpg

I didn't even think about my phone - I bought a iPhone Xr this year, so I guess that tops the list for single "item" for me.

Phones are expensive :(

Check if your insurance plan has a drug deductible. If it doesn't, find one that does. If it has one that's too high, get a lower drug deductible or look at some drug savings plans. 

My current insurance doesn't have a deductible for medical care or the pharmacy. This particular medication they only cover 50% of the cost for however, which seemed to be the same for most health insurance policies I checked concerning tier 7 medications unfortunately.

My medicine, it costs $6,300 but and my insurance only covers half of it. Thankfully I was almost at my out of pocket maximum for the year so it only ended up costing ~$600 and will be free each month for the rest of the year.

Hey, I understand where you are coming from. One of my meds are around $24,000 a month (Cystic Fibrosis is expensive). I have to pay 100% up to my deductible but then they pay 100% of everything else. (as long as I use the, in network, specialty pharmacy they specify).

That sucks. Have you checked to see what international pricing of the drug is? I wish I could help, but insurance companies [in the US] use their own drug tiers.

So far I spent $400 on a phone for a friend. Though, collectively, I'd says McDonald's meals.

I might buy a car before years end, so I suppose that'd be the biggest expense. We'll see though.

I've done more selling of personal items than buying this year.

I finally paid off my truck this year, so if you wanna call that my biggest payment.  (But I've been making payments for a couple years).  Otherwise, the biggest purchase this year would maybe be my PC or my phone.  Granted my phone is on the AT&T Next plan, so obviously not paying it all out of pocket at once.

Those are rookie numbers. Gotta pump 'em up.

Waste of time

Candour and lies

For what I left behind

I know the price was high

No words to make it right

But now I know

If it's my own money, then the biggest single payment would probably be my Windows tablet at £110.

But I have bought £100s worth of tools this year but that at different times.


If it's someone else's money, then I spend £50k of the family's money on a house

Not one single part, but collectively I have spent $3,600 building my forged engine for my turbo Miata in the past couple months.


The most expensive single part for it was the harmonic damper, surprisingly, at $526. A close second is the piston set at $474.


Still another $12,200 to go before it makes 400hp!

My 335i xDrive M-Sport. That is, by at least an order of magnitude, the most expensive thing I have ever bought. Nothing else even comes close.


The runners up this year are my Danner Quarries and my LAMY 2000 EF.
