    What objects are you happy to spend a fair amount of money on?

    For me, it's a brown leather wallet. I could easily spend £35 - £50 on a nice leather wallet.

    Also, watches! If I had the money, remembering I'm 14, I would spend hundreds on a nice watch!

    What floats your boat?

    Camera gear. There is a limit ... but it's quite high, and I prefer to spend more to buy one good item than faff around for ages trying out loads of cheaper items before ultimately ending up with this item anyway.

    Guitars/amps.
    CDs (don't pay much for each one, rarely more than £13, but I get quite a few where I can)
    Whisky (Most expensive bottle I currently have is £35 at full price, but got it for £25...as a student that is A LOT for alcohol )

    Earphones - it makes such a big difference.

    (Mind you, I'm talking about £70-£80, not hundreds...)

    I'm willing to spend money on petrol I guess,

    Some computer programs. On the 9th I'm going to be shelling out money on the next iteration of Modo, Modo 601 from Luxology.
    I love that company, and that 3D program is simply amazing, so that is £250 down for the upgrade right there.
    I think they deserve the money though, and I'll certainly use it.

    I'll spend around £20 on a shirt or something if need be, and £50 on a good pair of jeans but I can't clothes shop to save my life even though I need to.
    I don't have the fashion sense.

    If I had the money I would spend more money on music equipment, i.e speakers, a good workstation keyboard, etc.

    I would spend £100 or so on a good pair of headphones, and I'm not talking Beats, or similar.

    Food.

    I'd rather spend my money on high quality, fresh, wholesome food that'll make me feel happier, more refreshed and alive than any possession ever could.

    Aye, guitars and amps are worth investing some money in for sure.
    I bought a very expensive CD once -- had it shipped from Japan because I couldn't get it over here. Worth it? Hell yes.
    Whisky is excellent, but no one else wants to drink it.

    Indeed! I've spent a lot of money on my headphone setup at home. Most people don't understand it, which is how I came to the conclusion that most people are deaf.

    I might splash out occasionally when I'm buying new clothes, perhaps for a new suit or whatever. Or if there's a hot new game that's just come out, then I usually have to buy it.

    Shoes give me a confidence that I don't get from anything else, they literally let me put my best foot forward.

    I wouldn't complain about that: more for me

    As it happens the guy who lives above me likes whisky and over the summer when he was in Japan bought some very expensive Yamazaki/Hibiki (the next step down from the ones which have consistently won best single malt/blended awards)
    I share my scotch with him from time to time. The Japanese whiskies are pretty disappointing imo. If you've not tried it yet, I thoroughly recommend Glenlivet 12 year (and older...the 18 year version is very good)
