      Another item is furniture. We both really enjoy fine furniture and shop it quite a bit. Don't necessarily go for the most expensive stuff as we usually find some great deals, but it isn't inexpensive either. We keep our stuff very long and don't bore with it. Considering how much we enjoy it and budget money aside for it, I have no qualms with it.
      You aren't old enough to have kept anything "very long" yet, lol. You're still a kid!

          Quality coffee beans and quality food. I don't eat at restaurants very much, but I enjoy the hell out of a great meal and am willing to pay for it from time to time.

          Clothes. I don't have a huge closet or shop much, but I only buy what I love. Bonus if I love something that costs $30, but if it costs $100 (or maybe even $150), I'll get it and cherish it for years.

          Pet care. If my dog is sick, I'll do whatever it takes to make them well.

                    Travel and sushi.
                    I'm very frugal in other parts of my life so that I can afford these splurges.

                      Yep, you don't want to be buying that budget sushi.

                        I love sushi! Unfortunately, decent sushi is very pricey for me.

                        Just found a very cool website on it, by the way.

                              I'm a sucker for eating out when friends come into town. Even though I love to cook they still prefer to eat out.

                              And I'm addicted to Arabic and Thai but try not to eat it that much.

                                Food and AC. I don't travel much, but when I do I prefer to stay in hotels and not with friends, though they usually offer to let me stay.
