Most of the articles I intend to publish about money are about how to get better with it – whether that means spending less, or spending smart, or not spending at all. However, in the spirit of the consumer spending that I will soon try to CRUSH, here’s a throwaway on how to do the exact opposite. Spend like it’s going out of fashion, like the world is gonna end, like your work just paid you a million by mistake and they’ll try to take it back on Monday!! Read on for deets..
- Buy Hookers and Blow: This time honoured tradition of drug dealers and rock stars can really set you back a pretty penny. Snorting blow up your nose will kill your savings quicker than a conscience free accident lawyer, and mixing it with blow-snorting hookers is a recipe for both chlamydia and disaster! But drugs can be about making money not spending it. Check out this interview with a California based weed dealer. And this UN list on global drug prices!
- Buy Insanely Expensive Food. This is a little more mundane than blow and hookers, and if you’ve had the blow you’re unlikely to want lots of food. BUT LOOK AT THE FOOD! Spend $50k on 12 mangoes, $1,000 on an omelette for breakfast, and then really start spending when it’s time for lunch. The Guinness Book of Records has the answers when it comes to expensive foods.
- Buy Cigarette Boat (more to come)
