    I am celebrating the month anniversary of a life-changing purchase: my French press. Dear God, it has revolutionized my morning routine, coffee drinking, and waking up in general. Hands down, best $22 I have spent in a long while.

    FOCUS: Life-altering purchases for less than $100.

    My kittens were free. I'm going to go ahead and count them even though they get more expensive all the time with food and kitty litter expenses.

    A Tickets to see Nine Inch Nails with Soundgarden in Molson Park in 1994 cost me $33.00. It was the opening date for the Downward Spiral tour, my first concert and my favourite band all in one day. I made the 3+ hour drive only DAYS after getting my license and drove my dad's monstrous 1983 Caprice Classic that only had AM radio. Back then, when you got knocked down in a mosh pit people didn't help you up. You got the boots put you. I got home at 3am covered in dried blood, contusions, and an ear-to-ear smile.

    I've been to over 110 concerts now, and it was one of few that truly stood out for me.

    I'd have to say every romp in the sack I've had after buying a woman dinner for less than $100 is the most worthwhile use of a C note. Video games get boring after a while, pussy doesn't.



    edit: This $4.25 bowl of half broccoli cheddar/ half tomato basil soup from Panera Bread comes in a close second though.

    I bought a domain and set up web hosting (something I still don't really understand, fuck you English/Philosophy degree) for under $100, and now I do quite a bit of blogging.

    After more than a year of doing bullshit legal work, I now have something where I'm actually excited to wake up and work on in the morning. It doesn't pay yet, but it's still a great feeling to work on something I honestly like doing.

    1. My memory stick. My dad bought it for me for college. Besides holding every paper ice written in the last 4 years, it also has pictures, letters, and personal writings. So much easier than the floppy disks I had to use in grade school.

    2. My hair conditioner, Soap and Glory Hair Supply. At $10 a tube, I think it's ridiculous, but it's the one conditioner that can get that bar smoke smell out of my hair. And it smells amazing.

    3. My foot massager. I bought it on clearance at Walgreens for $10, $15. It was a great investment back when I waitressed, and it's a great investment still.

    Yeah, but a cat?

    ...?

    FOCUS: $15 6" frying pan with lid. One of my biggest bitches was always that making eggs in the morning seemed like a task with a big pan. Boom! Problem solved.

    Yeah, dogs take too much effort for an apartment, and I grew up with cats.

    Best $20? Britta water filter. I use that every fucking day for the last 7 years. <3 tasty water.

    I didn't think lawyers would plagarize.

    I have a pair of SheGirl's panties framed behind glass like a Bobby Orr jersey.

    I have Aetius' manhood in a glass dome on my mantle. I picked it up at a garage sale for a buck.

    Yes, I have my own line of true to life injection (heh) molded "sensual accessories," of which SheGirl has apparently purchased a used example at a garage sale.

    Every Saturday, Chipotle restores me to normal sanity levels. Steak (or chicken) fajita burriot + chips and guac = best meal ever for under $10

    A few years ago, I was in Vegas for a work retreat. The first night I was there, I hit a hot streak on the blackjack table and ended up playing alone at the same table until 6am. I had a meeting at 8 in the morning, so I finally colored-up and cashed out. My total winnings were just over $2,100, but when it comes to casino gambling, I sort of have a rule of thumb about keeping winnings (or limiting losses) to round numbers. I figured I'd be happy taking home $2,000 even, so on my way to the elevator bay, I dropped the spare $100 into a $5 slot machine and ended up hitting a $10,000 jackpot (not the progressive) on my third or fourth pull.

    That was the best $100 I ever spent.

    As a side note, I got greedy and ended up losing about $5,000 of it back the next night in the high limit room, most of it on $500 slot pulls. Yikes.

    My Shure headphones which I am pretty sure I lost this past weekend while snowboarding. Oh well, I get them half off through my job, and when I get them, it'll be my 3rd pair of Shures in 4 years. The first one got slammed in a car door...and lasted another 8 months with some electrical tape wizardry.

    I had the e2c's, then the se110s. There are new models out now, plus most people I know go through headphones several times a year, so it's not so bad.

    If you have to fly a lot, or take public transportation, or just hate hearing the annoyance of the outside world, I cannot recommend Shures enough. Better than Bose, for shure (get it?)
