8 Ridiculously Expensive Things To Waste Your Money On

If you're looking for something affordable and practical, you've come to the wrong place. If you're a casual billionaire looking to waste a few thousands, look no further.


We've all wondered how we would spend our money on a daily basis if we lived the richest lifestyle. Surely if you were ever in this situation you would inevitably get bored of buying new cars or new houses, so you'd move to other equally costly things. There's got to be something to do with all this extra money! This is where useless yet extravagant products shine, and here's a list of my favorites. You might buy them not because you want to, but because you can.

1. Tiffany Tennis Ball Can - $1500

I mean $1500 for a tennis ball can? What a steal. Although this currently isn't selling on the Tiffany & Co. website, this is still a staple item for anyone overly rich looking to play a fun game of tennis.

2. Diamond Contact Lenses - $1500

Feeling extra glittery? Bedazzle your eyes with this beautiful set of diamond contact lens! Originally designed by Indian optometrist Chandrashekhar Chawan, these will cost you $1500 and are customizable with up to 18 diamonds.

3. Luxury Ice Cubes - $325

Luxury Ice Cubes

A set of these luxurious individually handcrafted ice cubes will cost you $325, but they claim to enhance your drinking experience by lessening the amount of dilution a regular ice cube interferes with in a drink.

4. Gold Covered Men's Bicycle - $232,103.12

Gold Cycle

This isn't your average bicycle. Goldgenie, a popular high-end company, elevated a seemingly normal cycle by completely covering it with 24k gold on to every part of it, from the handles to the wheel. The only problem? The starting price is $232,103.12. If I were actually this rich, this is the first thing I would buy.

5. Diamond and Gold covered Game Boy - $25,000

Gold and Diamond Game Boy

Are you an adult born in the early 90s looking to reminisce on yourself as a child? This product is just an elevated version of that. The iconic Game Boy started a new generation of video gaming, and it's only fair we honor it by slathering it in lavish diamonds and gold pieces.

6. Goldplated Staples - $65.75

Goldplated Staples

True, these Goldplated Staples isn't as costly as the others and it's even somewhat useful. But $65 for a pack of 24 staples? That's $2.73 per staple, whereas an average pack of staples will cost you 0.000858 per staple.

7. 52-Carat Gold Dog Collar - $1.8 million

I chose to save the most expensive for last. I mean look at it! From I Love Dogs La Collection de Bijoux, Amour Amour is the world's most expensive dog collar that incorporates 1600 hand-set diamonds with a seven-carat cut center diamond. Talk about a dog with style!

What did we learn today folks? Easy. Dip anything in gold and it automatically becomes an expensive product that even the wealthy can use.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
