Best Purchases/Investments
« on: August 07, 2015, 01:05:51 PM »
MMM preaches that a penny saved is a penny earned, but what investments have you made that were expensive, but worth the investment (besides real estate, stocks, 401k)? For instance, I bought a Macbook Pro for personal use that I also use to get freelance work on the side of my fulltime job  its paid for itself multiple times over.

What are your best purchases/investments?

Paid a company to install solar panels on my roof three years ago.  Should break even in about three more years, then its all profit.  Even though I thought I was pretty good with cutting out waste electricity, it made me even better.
