my 1k list

August 26th, 2009 at 02:35 am

Inspired by MonkeyMama, I decided to make my own 1k list. I think it's a really interesting concept, 1k is definately a barrier in a lot of people's minds when it comes to spending money. This is everything I have ever bought for 1k or more in my life, and what DF has since we've been together.

First Car: $1500 (2005)
Holiday: (DF) $3000~ (DF) (2006)
Holiday: (me) $1000~ (me) (2006)
Desktop Computer: $3500~ (2007)
Second Car: $6500 (2007)
Project Car: $3500~ (2007)
Laptop: $2050 (2007)
Holiday: $1500~ (me) (2008)
Holiday: $8000~ (DF) (2008)
House: $320 000 (2009)
New Engine: $1911 (2009)
Engagement Ring: $2320 (2009)

And the expenses I know that are coming this year:
Bed & Mattress: $1200~
Tattoos: $1500~ (sep & oct 2009)
Fencing: $3000~

It's interesting to see. I thought we'd have more electronic stuff there but when I think about it, a lot of our stuff is REALLY old, and other things we either do without or find a cheaper way to get it. (ie. for free!). The holidays, obviously wasn't the purchase of one item, but those are the sort of thing I count as a lump sum. Because if we didn't go on a holiday, we would not have spent that money.

So what's your 1k list?

    You reminded me of another thing. I am sure my list will grow!!!!

    I think these lists are interesting.

    they are interesting. i guess because anything over $1k is really a large amount (to most) and so it really shows what your personal priorities are.

  3. monkeymama Says:

    For the others, $1,000 Australian Dollars converts to about $800 US Dollars. This list is useless without that consideration. Similar enough, but a little different.

    I am not sure about historically though. This is just current exchange rate.

    oh yeah, i forgot about that. Though i do remember the exchange rate was better when df went on his holiday to the us. (the 8k one)
