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.

RedditorPartyLikeLizLemonwanted 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.

The 'Weird' Kid In School That People Will Never Forget

School is hard. Sometimes, a kid may be different from the rest of his classmates, and everyone else is cruel and makes fun of them.

However, every now and then, you do find that kid that is weird, not because they are different from everyone else, but because they really just do or say something strange or even evil. Those are the kids their classmates will never forget.

I can't think of anyone like that in my high school, but plenty of Redditors have stories about that!

When I was 18, my brother and I drove out to a bridge that everyone in my hometown insists is haunted. I turned around to grab my phone from the backseat when I heard my brother cry out. To this day, he insists he saw a ghostly figure standing in front of him. I didn’t see it, but it’s still the scariest true story I know.

The world is full of scary things. Some of these things are supernatural. More often, they’re heartbreaking. Whatever the case, everyone has that one scary, true story to tell.

I never know the age of anything.

It's funny how we look at certain aspects of life and just have a certain sense of nostalgia attached.

Take Adele for instance. It feels like she's been a part of our lives forever.

But she's only 4 albums in.

That's a drop in the musical bucket.

A very magical and musical bucket.

Why do families keep secrets?

The truth will always finds a way home.

And it will of course be exposed at the most inopportune time.

Make sure you have a journal and write this stuff down.

It could be comedy/drama gold.

The tea is scolding, throw it at me.
