Everybody seems to believe millennials can’t afford houses because we’re all dishing out $17 a pop for avo on toast.
This post is about to prove those people wrong. So very wrong.
Want to know the real reason we’ll all spend the rest of our lives renting a floor beneath a 40-year-old bachelor who smells like chicken soup?
WE SPEND SO MANY DUBLOONS ON STOOPID STUFF.
Listen: The crazy extremes of wedding costs. (Post continues…)
Without further ado, these are the most expensive things *anonymous* staffers from the Mamamia office have purchased.
“I spent $160 on a stainless steel bread bin from a fancy kitchen store because we’d just moved to Bondi and I felt it might help me feel like I belonged,” Lina* said. “It didn’t. And most people I met didn’t even eat bread.”
Well, that’s Bondi for you.
“I once bought $250 head shots for my failed acting career,” one of Mamamia‘s writers told me.
“I got a pair of $420 thigh-high leather winter boots,” Ally said. “I couldn’t even barely afford them, and ended up wearing them a handful of times before the heels fell apart.”
Then there’s Celeste, who splurged “about $550 on a Coach leather bag“… which she later paid $250 to fix because she spilt an entire water bottle in it. Ah-mazing.
“I spent $400 on a dinner at Noma in Copenhagen,” Sarah said, surprisingly adding: “It was 100 per cent worth it.”
Yep. One dinner. For two people. Eek.
For one of our office’s aspiring best selling authors, her dream didn’t exactly go to plan: “I bought a disgusting bright red dress for $800 for a book launch for a book nobody bought because I had watched too much Sex and the City,” she told me.
