20 Responses To An Online Question Asking, What One Thing Would You Regularly Spend On If Money Was Not An Issue

Published 1 year ago

We’re definitely a generation that doesn’t like to be told what to do or think, so it stands to reason that we must question every adage including the one that said, money can’t buy happiness. Is that concept really true anymore? Recent online research found that, 33% Americans say that money actually makes them happier than love does.

So, what are your thoughts on the subject? If money was absolutely no object, what would you happily splurge your money on on a constant basis? According to responses received on a thread broaching the same subject by redditor, u/GrouchyResolution974, the attitude towards money seems rather subjective. Scroll below for some thought-provoking responses received on the thread and don’t forget to mention your own answer in the comments section.

Personal cook/nutritionist.

Having my meals made for me, and them being healthy meals, would be so nice.

Think I would never have takeout food/bad food ever again.

#3 Personal Staff

Staff. Just staff.

Housekeeper, nannies, chauffeurs, personal trainer, personal chef, personal assistant, etc..

#4 Neighborhood Parties

When I was a younger man, I once won $500 in a local raffle. Not enough for anything life-changing, but enough that I wanted to do something memorable. So I spent it on several dozen pounds of meat, sides, briquettes, beer, and a permit, and threw a neighborhood BBQ. About three dozen people showed up across the 4 hours we were allotted, and we all had a great time eating, drinking, and playing Hammerschlagen (hit the nail into the stump).

I’d throw a neighborhood party once a month if money was no object.

#5 Flights

#7 Personality Trainer

A personality trainer.

#8 Private Flights

If money was truly no object, private flights.* No more flying commercial.

Slightly less ambitious – personal trainer, personal chef, maybe a personal assistant for all the little annoying things one has to do in life.

*Geez people, it’s a fantasy… The math is simple: {odds of me flying private} x {carbon output of private jet} = 0.

#11 Buy Whatever They Want Without Feeling Guilty

Image source: MostlyNormal, Andrea Piacquadio

Whatever I wanted. A little treat at the shop, a cute but impractical piece of clothing, a dinner out maybe.

I’d just like to be able to buy something I want for no other reason than because I want it, without having to do all of the mental gymnastics and algorithms about whether it’s “worth it” or what I might need that money for later on as I regret the purchase. It must be a really liberating feeling.

Trips abroad and stays in expensive hotels.

#16 Traveling

Travel. No big plans around trips but just deciding to spend a week or two in another country because I saw it mentioned somewhere and it sounded nice. With money as no object airfare hotels food luggage and all that wouldn’t matter as expenses to plan or save for and it would be so awesome to feel that freedom to just go somewhere whenever the idea strikes you.

#17 Getting Whatever They Want On A Restaurant Menu

Now that I do have money, the one thing I treat myself to is getting whatever I want on a restaurant menu. If I want appitizers, I don’t try to get the cheapest, just what sounds good.

#19 Dental Care

Dental care.

#20 A House

Image source: ashbuch1980, Ketut Subiyanto

I’d buy a house…so tired of how I’m treated as renter but I mean…I CAN’T buy so I don’t get to choose my own paint or have pets or whatever other rules that come up with. THEN your rent is twice what the mortgage would be if you owned. Less ownership MORE restrictions. Blows.

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
