I’m a HUGE gadget/toy person. I’m into cameras, camcorders, game consoles, tablets, mp3 players, book readers…all that! I’m looking to spend more money on clothes/shoes now though. I’m going to turn over a new leaf. I think looking nice is more important as you get older. Not necessarily dressing up, but better quality and a bit more variety. I’m trying to grow in that area this year. I won’t buy a lot of clothes, but top shelf. Not the very top, just the shelf above where I buy now.
My spending habits depend on my resources. I let that dictate. Some years I make more money than others, so it really depends. My friends are traveling quite a bit, some have kids, they might have better clothes, and in some cases, better cars. The trade off is that the money I don’t spend on those things, I spend on what I want instead. Everyone has choices, and I find that, at my age, resources depend on choices. For younger people, careers and choices are still being created.
