I'm Asking: What's the Most Expensive Thing You Own?

I'm Asking: What's the Most Expensive Thing You Own?

Some people buy for quality, some for quantity, and others just buy the things they love or the things they need. After learning about one frugal woman who says the most expensive thing she owns is a pair of contacts, it made me consider what is my priciest possession. Granted, this particular woman makes a point of not earning taxable income because she doesn't believe in federal taxes, but we're all responsible for deciding what's important to us.

So, tell me, what's the most expensive thing you own? Was it a gift from someone else or did you purchase it for yourself?

Oh, I forgot my sofa! It's definitely more expensive than my laptop. And the most expensive non-material item I have is my education :-) But it's also probably one of the most important things of all!

My apartment BY FAR (literally 4,000x the next one down, haha), then my Macbook Pro, then my diamond earrings.

LOL I was looking at how funny it was that I have so many apple items on my list, and I forgot my Apple Time Capsule! It was a little more than my iPhone. That means four of my six most expensive things are from Apple! Too funny.

Oh, I forgot! My glasses go above the iPhone, below the sofa. I think they were three or four hundred intitially and then I put new lenses in this year for another few hundred.

Aside from the car (Lexus SUV) and some jewelry from my parents that never gets worn, it would have to be my Louboutin boots :-)

On second thought..................I would have to say.......MY HUSBAND, he is one of a kind and the best man I have ever met, you could not put a price on him, so he is PRICELESS :)

Well, I would have to say my is made by Mercedes, but it is an extremely top-of-the-line vehicle. It their Maybach model. I have never seen another one on the streets. I don't really want to say the price, but it is in the 6-figure range. Also, I did go all out and get a second Versace purse about a month ago, lol, the price I paid for that one could be a nice downpayment on a car ;)

Maybe the question should be what is the most expensive thing you are making payments on? or what is the most expensive thing you own out right. For this question it seems almost everyone has the same answers: house, car, ring, TV, laptop.

Hmm...probably the 20 acres of land we own outright that we plan on building our retirement house on, followed by my engagement ring and my clarinet. I think both of those things are worth more than my beater car, lol.

My car. It used to be my furniture. I sold it all when I moved overseas, though. And my gaming computer, until it bit the dust. Now I have a little laptop only. :(

My wedding band was more than my engagement ring. So I'll have to say that my diamond and pink sapphire channel set ring is my most prized possession. Our new puppy, Chloé is a close runner-up. ^_^
