I know someone up above just mentioned that they got one, but the thing that I want right now that I need the least is an Apple Watch. A large number of my coworkers have them, and sometimes they look pretty nice. However, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't get much use out of it to justify the several-hundred dollar cost. Also, one thing I know about myself is that I hate wearing watches, so it doesn't really make any sense that part of me wants one.

Studded Wrathchild tires from 45 NRTH. Not really a dumb thing, I could use them for my heavier snow commuter. 
They are very expensive though, that is the stupid thing.  Not many companies do the 3" studded tires. Most do 4" tires.

A set of cutlery. We got ours gifted from someone that was downsizing, then a temporary roommate lost a few pieces and replaced them with cheap stuff that doesn't match at all. It really gets on my nerves.
This is my dream: https://www.wmf.com/en/cutlery-set-66-pcs-jette-cromarganr-protect-1274006341.html

That's some expensive silverware!

Well I'm not gonna lust after some Ikea bullshit now, am I?!
Literally snorted at this. Good one!

A Jaeger LeCoultre Atmos clock. (Specifically the Rhodium finished moon-phase one):

http://www.jaeger-lecoultre.com/us/en/watches/atmos.html

While I think they look pretty they're also powered by variations in ambient temperature and can run a decade or more before a recommended service cycle. That's part of the hook for me to lust after one.. its damned near being a perpetual motion machine!

This watch site describes how it works and even makes a pitch for it being a "value" buy (Lol):

a vacation home in another province,


These. Maybe if I work on my flirting I can find a fellow with a cottage!

Also, I had been lusting after a dining room light that actually shed light until I broke down and bought a pretty one yesterday. Not a frugal choice, but also not as outrageous as I had thought it would end up being. Now I worry that the extra light will mean that I have to dust more often.  Greed is onerous - having to flirt AND clean is starting to sound like work!

I wanted to buy $50 worth of Lilyís chocolate bars from amazon. Guess what, I did it this week and have no regrets!  In my defense, I donít drink so I have no alcohol budget.  I would classify half this expense under food and the other half under healthcare/medication.  My family knows to feed me a dose when I am out of sorts.

An $80 Ember coffee mug.

It knows the temperature you like your coffee, and has multiple sensors and heaters so it keeps every sip the same temperature.

My early morning pre-coffee self isn't as frugal.

A Zojirushi rice cooker ($130). It keeps rice warm and fresh for 12+ hours... I would 100% snatch up a used one if that even exists though.

Despite having an Xbox One, PS4 Pro, and Nintendo Switch I really want to buy the new $500 Xbox One X.

If there's a good holiday sale I'm sure I'll pick one up.   I'm weak, MMMers.

On that note.....a PS4 Pro. I haven't played video games in I don't know how long (My most current system is a Wii that never gets played) and really don't have time, currently, to sit down for a few hours at a time to get into any games.

There’s a 2002 (E39) 525i for sale right now nearby and even though it’s got 152,000 miles on it, it look looks brand new.  The owner obviously took a lot of care to condition the leather, wax the paint, etc, even the engine bay is clean. It’s also a 5-speed manual with the cold weather, M-Sport and premium packages in silver on black interior.

I need a 15 year old BMW like I need a hole in my head, but this one is exactly like how I would want it and it’s only $5000 so I could easily head over there and plunk down some cash for it. 

I’m trying to be strong.

- An Aerogarden Extra or Ultra so I can grow tomatoes in my apartment year round.  Looking for one on craigslist.  And a water reservoir to keep them topped up while I'm away on business trips.

- Fancy curved "Lotus Leaf" cat climbing shelves that double as wall art (they're beautiful).

Welp, adding this to my Amazon wishlist of "things I'll never buy but if someone REALLY wants to get it for me I wouldn't object". Along with tea that's $6.50 per ounce, a $70 portable battery pack, and other stupid stuff.

I taught my wife to drive a manual when we first started dating (about thirteen years ago). Every vehicle we've owned has had a manual transmission. We will only make an exception in the future for an electric car or maybe a dual clutch transmission.

Both my boyfriend and I learned when he bought his Focus ST (which he only kept for a year, thanks MMM). He test drove it on a side road at the dealership since he barely knew how to drive a manual... That was a sketchy ride home from the dealership but now we both know how to drive a manual. It's never too late!

a vacation home in another province,
but instead I booked the camping in that area for the whole vacation and it was way cheaper !!

I cancelled the camping and bought the house, very cute cottage, quiet + no pollution, bliss...I'm happy !! Now I'm lusting for more vacation days so I can be there more....

Same here. I caved too, and bought a cottage. Cottage lust is very powerful, especially in the Muskokas. And I don't even live in the same country as the cottage. :/

I do plan on going back every summer and spending at least two weeks there...and other family members who live closer by will make good use of it.

My most recent lust is a townhouse in the city.

A house- my family lives in a small condo, but with a new son it's somewhat tight quarters. We probably will move in ~1 year or so (once we have a downpayment saved up so we can keep the condo and rent it), but the 'where' really depends on my future job outlook.

Or flight simulator.. *drooling*

A bunch of mushroom books, specializing per genus. I have three so far, the others are way more expensive than those and are therefore only on my wishlist. I hope to find some second hand some day.

Second hand is a great idea, but do any of your local libraries have them? At my library, if they don't have a specific book you can use a system to borrow a book from any of 150+ libraries in nearby states. I've found a lot of older and rare books this way.

Then, simply read and copy/take notes on relevant pages?

A GPS Running/Fitness Watch such as a Garmin Forerunner 235 or a Tomtom Runner3.

I justify it as being my daily watch / fitness tracker, I don't have a fitness tracker and I work in a sedentary job so any extra motivation for movement throughout the day would help.

The truth is I'm not a runner, I only run at Parkrun once a week on a Saturday and really over long term that has been intermittent at best.  Very occasionally I will get the pushy out for a ride too.  I currently have an ancient Polar F7 heart rate watch and chest strap that I use when I do "serious" exercise but it doesn't give me my running/riding pace, vO2, map my runs etc.  Yes I have a smartphone and strava, no I don't want to run with my phone.

Crazy isn't it!

I'm lusting after a Ducati 998R right now.  I don't think I'll be talked out of it either, already considering building a shed to house my lawnmower, rototiller, and various other items just to make room in the garage for another Ducati.  It's a slippery slope...

Yes, I believe so. The original video creator was found to be associated with a competitor, so it wasn't exactly unbiased. However, the post I linked to above shows that there are still unaddressed worries with purple.com.

Got some more to add! I NEVER do the black Friday sales, but this year I have a membership to Costco. Between the Costco card great warranty (4 years) and Black Friday, going to price out 40" or 43" tv to replace our 32" tv. I re-arranged the living room so now the tv is farther from seating. For my youngest (and secretly me) I am going to get either a newer "old" xbox 360, or an xbox one, with kinect. I'm going to wait until Black Friday to make decision. Right now my contender is $140 for an xbox 360 with 1 hand held device, 1 game, and the Kinect. If I can get both xbox one and a Kinect (new or used) for less than 100 more than used version, may do so for the warranty.

I have some ambivalence to these potential purchases. My kids are 11 and 14. First preference is non-video/tv/electronic entertainment. But if I had to choose, I would rather have a console where they play in the living room, with me or their friends, versus being isolated and glued to devices in their bedrooms. I want to use it for dance and exercise type games.

I spent about $6-7k on all the electronics in our living room. Your plans seem pretty modest to me.

I have so many questions about this entire site as a clueless southerner. I finally figured out this was for bear hunting but...why? People eat them or something?

Also...the stuff on this site is REALLY cheap. If I was broke and homeless could I eat this stuff? I'm assuming a lot of this is leftover from human grade food production. I have eaten out of a dumpster afterall...

Yes, people eat bear meat, but it's not very good.

Speaking of Costco, that massage chair (what it is--$2000?) looks very tempting. I just wonder how long it would last before it stopped working...

A jeep fully outfitted for off roading (including the rescue boards, jacks, winches, extra gas canisters).

Lusting no more, just ordered a Dyson cordless vacuum--animal model.  I missed better BF deals but didn't want to go down the rabbit hole of spending hours/days online looking for a better deal.

Current vacuum still works, but it's corded and heavy and seriously impacts my motivation to use it often.  And that's just not good when you have two cats.  Hoping the cordless and lighter Dyson will make daily or almost daily vacuuming the norm around here.

Will try to sell the 11 year old vacuum at the local thrift store.  They get a 15 or 20% cut but worth it to avoid the Craigslist hassle.  If no one buys it, it'll be a donation to the store.
