I love spending money. I love having money to spend more.

I tell myself money is the root of many evil, but truthfully it's also the root of survival.

Let's face it, we need money. And even when there isn't a ton to go around there are items in life you just have to spend it on.

Sometimes quality is key. There are necessities that you just can't skimp on like cars, baby items, food. The list is pretty endless, which is why most of us are broke.

Now don't get me wrong, I love a good deal and generic is a steal. But once in awhile, you just have to make the purchase.

Redditor PartyLikeLizLemon wanted to hear about all the things we love to throw money at, no matter the cost, by asking:

"What is one thing you absolutely don't mind spending money on?"

Concert tickets to Adele. I'd sell my mother for front row seats.

Wiped

"Windshield wiper blades. I see some people using blades so old you can barely see through the smears, but new wipers are not all that expensive. 30 bucks might just save your life (and possibly someone else's) from being totally upended." ~ fernguts

Precision

"Tools." ~ KotexAvenger

"Good tools are so damn underrated. I remember buying cheap crappy precision screwdrivers only to realize that they basically become useless after just a month. Never going too cheap out on tools again." ~ PartyLikeLizLemon

"I look at all my tools as an investment in myself. I've saved more repairing stuff I own than I've spent on tools over an equal amount of time. I've also made money but that was only because I could. Quality tools are indeed important but there are many good affordable gems out there for the average hobbyist." ~ KotexAvenger

Threading Count

"Quality bed sheets. In college, I slept on some of the cheapest, ugliest sheets for years. They were awful. And as soon as I got a place of my own, I still gladly paid a little extra for better sheets. Even though I was mostly broke at the time, there are just some things you can't put a price on." ~ JackFisherBooks

Thick is Better

"Towels. The good super thick towels- once you try them, you won't want to go back. Completely dry with just a quick once over, without scrubbing all over trying to get dry. Bonus points if it's wide enough that you cover yourself easily. So much better than drying off with some cheap thing that hardly absorbs the water." ~ Weresalmon420

"A good bed... Man, talk about an absolute game Changer." ~ Caleb_The_Cannibal

Anything to do with bedding... make a quality purchase. Your body will love you for it. And tools? I just learned that there are more than two wrenches. So there is my tool knowledge.

Holding Waste

"Strong bin liners/bags. Life is better when the thing that holds your decomposing waste is strong enough not to break under its own weight." ~ Thick_Perspective_77

For You

"Someone I love." ~ HollynBerry

"A lot of times i have trouble rationalizing buying things for myself. Like I'll convince myself I don't really need that or I would be happy with a less expensive version and stuff like that. But when it comes to really good friends and my siblings, I rarely think twice about spending the money." ~ chewytime

For the Feet

"Good shoes. My entire youth was plagued with money deficiencies that ended up with me having crap shoes due to my ignorance, and feet with calluses. I didn't realise my feet were a little wider than usual and some shoes really weren't good for me."

"I now look back at the last 12 years and realised that since I got to know my needs better, and chose to buy better quality shoes (quality VS quantity), I have literally ended up shoes that are over 12 years old sitting besides shoes that are 2 years old. Good shoes last a long bloody time. Your tastes might change over time, so makes sure to give 'em a good polish before deciding to give the old ones away." ~ FreakyGangBanga

make a plan...

"Condoms." ~ DirectionSevere9045

"When I worked retail there was this dude came in asked where the plan B pills was. He took one look at the price and started asking if we had anything cheaper. It was all I could do to not laugh in his face. Like yeah, condoms are a lot cheaper, but it seems like you have gotten yourself into a situation where buying plan B is for sure going to be your cheapest option." ~ dlpfc123

Comfort

"Thick, soft af toilet paper." ~ slipoutside

"Charmin ultra strong is the best toilet paper. Also a bidet attachment is worth it too." ~ Im_Old_In_Town

Good toilet paper is key to a happy life. Buy the best, your butt will thank you for it. And shoes, when buying shoes, quality matters.

Let me be real for a second.

Every time I listen to Bjork's "Unravel," my heart breaks a bit.

Have you ever listened to it?

It's on Homogenic, her third studio album, and it's incredible, passionate, smartly produced and a great showcase for her stupendous voice.

That song? An emotional rollercoaster, for sure.

There's tons of great music out there, though, and even more sad and gorgeous songs to discover.

Unfortunately, a friendship could really end at any point in life.

Friends grow apart, but also, sometimes, it's just necessary to say goodbye to your relationship with a friend.

Maybe they aren't the right type of friend for you anymore, or maybe something has happened in their lives to make them self-destructive and toxic.

The reasons are many, and they are all sad.

Certain personalities show up at almost every party like clockwork.

There's always that person who get's too drunk, someone awkwardly standing in the corner nursing a drink, the person who's not having a good time no matter what and the person babysitting the crowd they came with.

When there's alcohol—or any other substances—and the pressure of a social situation, all sorts of quirks will come out. We wanted to know what people thought their country would act like if they were a person attending a party.

Irrespective of men's sexual identity or preference, there are men who hate sports, and there are men who love musical theater. Do participating in either activity make men straight or gay?
