Samsung Galaxy Note 9.  The one with extra RAM and internal storage that raises the price $250 over the base $999. 

This flies in the face of my usual strategy with computers/technology/etc, which is to teach old dogs new tricks - I acquire older equipment that is still upgradable, optimizing here and there as cash allows.  I have a shelf in my closet, full of computer parts acquired for cheap/free.   It's a fun and useful hobby.

But that PHONE! :)

I'm lusting after a winning MegaMillions ticket, but not enough to throw a little bit of cash toward attempting to obtain one. Can you imagine going from random lottery ticket buyer to one of the 500 richest people in the US?

I really can't.  I would probably be so overwhelmed if it happened that I would have to sit down for a few hours and figure out / write down exactly what I should do.

Ehh...playing the lottery would require driving over the state line for me.  It's only about 25 miles, but I don't wanna.

I need to be face punched.  Bought a Sonos playbar the other day, something I've wanted for a really long time.

Soundbars suck.

I am lusting after a revocable living trust done by a really expensive ($4500!) and full service estate planning law firm. Mmmmmmm so much control over my assets and how they are distributed in the event of my death...

Instead we are doing a lot of boring research and trying to get referrals to an attorney who will just provide the minimum ($1500?) service that will get the job done. The expensive attorneys put on such a great sales pitch and we wants it, we wants it...

A couple of japanese chef knives, made by a really old blacksmith that probably retires soon.

I've got dozens of new pocket knives that I never use and don't really need yet   I want a few more.

Do I deserve the dunce cap for stupid lust?

I think so.

Are you perhaps a Boy Scout? :P I've worked a lot with scouts, and there's something about pocket knives that is positively captivating for that demographic.

Not sure what draws you to pocket knives (MacGyver comes to mind) but why don't you get a curio cabinet and display them? You seem to enjoy them and displaying them would give you some visual joy. If there are some unique features of each knife you could display a little history about each knife. Make it a hobby! Make a three ring binder with plastic sleeves. Take pictures of all the features, cost, age, what made you buy it. Make it a fun project!

A pair of Dovetail Work Wear pants for the cold weather (I'm a dog walker and I work on a small farm). 
I've looked into other brands and these are best reviewed and cut in a way where I won't look absolutely awful if I also want to go into public after/before a dog walk (some workwear that's "cut for women" still has an awful awful fit).

These stupid pants are around $100, but I think might last 5+ years?  Currently I wear gym tights under old jeans to stay warm and it's pretty uncomfortable, but does the jobby job.

WANT THE NICE PANTS.

*Still want the WU TANG socks too.

Consider this part of your work wardrobe! Buy them! Take some money out of your piggy bank. Not so sure about the socks but the pants for sure!

ZOMG but they're $100!!! I don't own ANY clothing that cost that much, even winter coats.  I thrift and Ebay every single piece of my clothing except underpants, even shoes!  I get sweaty and panicked even thinking of spending $100 on PANTS! 
I guess I could.... deduct them?

Well, you have already paid for the pants by being thrifty all these years! If they will last 5 years it is kind of an investment that will be worth it. My hub used to wear steel toe work shoes. If you have ever had to wear steel toe shoes you can appreciate a good pair. His company used to have a shoe truck come and most of the shoes were ok but not great. He was on his feet all day long and up on the roof of a building 20 acres under a roof. He put miles and miles on his shoes each day. He finally invested in Red Wing safety shoes that were about $150 a pair (or more). He did get partial reimbursement for the shoes once a year. But it was so worth it for him to have shoes that didn't kill his feet and give him blisters and pain. Sometimes you need to spend money for the right things. If you continue to be frugal in other ways, you will still be saving lots of money. If you have a business, I am sure you can deduct the pants as an expense. Work clothes, work shoes. I buy a lot of clothing items on ebay too.

@Sugaree - WOW, thanks!  I'm not a size 25, but I will keep an eye on there since I haven't seen them pop up on Ebay, etc.

@Roadrunner53 - You're right, steel toed boots can really rip up your feet- I wore crappy ones when I worked on a horse farm years back and shouldn't have, your husband sounds like a smart man.

I wish I wasn't such a slippery slope monster- if I bought something on the premise that I've already paid for it by saving, I'd buy ALL OF THE THINGS and lose complete control of my consumption.  Ha.  Or at least I feel like I would.

If I REALLY think about it, I want a replacement for almost everything I own, BUT... I know the difference between want and need most of the time. I want new blankets, new shower curtain, new barbell, new light switch covers, new hangers so that they are all the same color, etc. etc. etc. into near infinity.

I think I can buy them if they have a holiday sale as long as I can mentally move them to the "Need" category mentally... that way I keep off of the hedonistic waterslide.  HA. :)

------------

Edited because @Sugaree just sent me to Poshmark, which helped me realize that the pants company had RE-FREAKIN-BRANDED and now I have the old brand name to search on Ebay and am finding better pricing.  HOLY HECK.

What's the other brand name? These would hold up really well for hunting I think, and it's hell to try and find good pants that would work for hunting cut for my frame. I usually have to strap men's pants in with a belt, and it's never very comfortable!

Soundbars suck.

They’re not for enthusiasts, but they’re still a big improvement over built-in tv speakers and are easy to set up. I picked a Yamaha sound bar for about $150 and have been happy with it.

Lusting after new jeans. I gained weight with my last (failed...) IVF cycle. And unlike the first cycle, it didn't come back off again =( I can still fit into my pants, but it's not comfortable for long. But I'm fighting with myself over how quickly I'll lose the weight vs spending the money!

Also, lusting after new clothes in general. I think I'm just really tired of feeling uncomfortable in my own body. Need to figure out how to fix that feeling without spending being the answer!

The newest GoPro. It makes no sense for me to buy one because I don't really take videos, only photos. And I'm not a huge fan of watching videos myself. But... the features are amazing. I've been thinking about this one for a while now. :p


I'd also like an automated garage door. We've been talking about it for years and have never done it. But, it would mean I could open and close our garage door without severe pain. We'll probably still talk about it for another few years.

A long lease for my DSLR camera. About $1700 for a good one. And the higher price/quality makes a difference. Really don’t take enough photos to justify it and the camera spends most of its time in the bag, not is use. But when I do take photos I would love to have it.

Not gonna get one anytime soon. But I WANT one.

Oh well.

An Uberti Smith & Wesson New Model 3 Frontier replica revolver in .45 Long Colt or .44-40 caliber.  It's a beauty.  But for me grossly impractical in just about every stinking way possible. 

- I don't do cowboy action shooting.
- It's technically a 5 shot gun because it's so old school.
- I don't need a new gun. 
- I don't have a place to store it.  Though I could if I spent another small wad on a gun safe.

So far I've been successful rationalizing the paperwork and the recent market downturn, another purchase, and some political supporting eating at my 'stache as "insurmountable" obstacles.

I've been lusting after a watch for about a year now. It is an Oris brown leather banded "dress/casual" watch. The thing is always "63% off" on a particular website. So, the "sale" price is $799.

I don't need it. I would like to have it. Had I started putting a bit of money away every month when I started looking at it a year ago I could almost justify buying it.

There are other watch brands that offer similar styles for half or a quarter of the price.

I am stuck on the 800 shells one tho..

In the current environment the stupidest thing I may be lusting after may be FIRE itself.    My heart says FIRE, FIRE, FIRE.   My right brain tells me to chill and wait till 2020.

I still want a pair of electric bikes.  They are expensive.  It's the desire to buy and not just actually buying that can make one postpone FIRE.

They must be pretty expensive indeed. Are they on this list?

Spent about an hour wandering Best Buy while waiting for DW's phone battery replacement.  Not something I really do anymore (even before catching the Mustachian bug). 

Perhaps predictably, I now have a bit of a hankering for a new TV.  Our main TV is a 46" 1080p, about 10 years old, and we have a 32" 720p in the man-cave.  Works fine, though obviously isn't going to do 4k content (which isn't a big deal yet).  I'm not looking for anything too fancy, and part of the desire is due to the affordability of a decent upgrade - looks like a lower-end 55" 4k with reasonable specs can be had for about $350 currently.  If I see prices in the $250-$275 range come Black Friday, I might do it. 

Guess it's stupid to want, since our TVs work fine.

That's the TCL with roku, right? HIGHLY recommend. We replaced our last TV with that and love the thing. I use it heavily (several surgical recoveries this year... plus we cast music from it all day every day) and it's had zero issues. Never thought I'd like a "smart" TV since we already have the chromecast, but it's snappy and intuitive. Plus I can still sync up my phone and do more chromecast style whenever I want. The guy we're selling our house to is buying it off of us, and we're going to replace it with the same if we can. Costco doesn't have the 55" anymore (boo), but the 50" is going on Black Friday sale at $200-something. $230 maybe? So I'm going to wait to see if the 55" comes on sale (seems to be available though Amazon and best buy still), and decide then what we'll do.

I had a midlife crisis before getting married and bought the couple things I was lusting over. Still going through midlife crisis but at least now I have some hobbies to fill my voids of regret.

Bought a motorcycle - had one previously and sold it for more important priorities but opted to buy one again since it's easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission although did buy in cash at least.

Also bought goalie equipment for hockey to start playing as an adult for a new outlet/hobby.

I really really want another BMW wagon. I’ve had two and I really regret not getting another one after I had to sell my most recent one. They’re just the perfect combination of sportiness and practicality. They even get decent gas mileage, and if you get the right options they’re even fairly reliable and not too awful to work on.



Of course I need one about as badly as I need a hole in my head, but I might give in a sell my current ride sometime in the next year.

A new watch.  Or an old watch. There is a beautiful old  Jaeger-LeCoultre for sale on a local watch forum. Almost $1000, but it will shurely not depreciate if taken care of.  But since partly renovated with after market parts, will probably never be extremely valuable either. :)

Oh man.... I was checking this car the other day. My dad used to have a manual speed Accord, which I really like to drive. I keep telling myself to be content with my current Lexus, automatic tranny, but has a V8 and rear wheel drive.

A Nintendo Switch. I have a back catalog of games I haven't yet played and still more that I haven't finished or could easily get more enjoyment out of, yet here I am salivating over this blasted thing.

To make matters even more absurd, I rarely have the time to play (a big cause of the aforementioned backlog) so it wouldn't be getting a ton of usage anyways.
