I agree.tyty333|1466808907|4047816 said:Oh gosh, I come from the other extreme...I think anything $500 or up is a large purchase. I dont make $500 or up purchases very often so to me that's a large purchase. I must be cheap .
I'm similar--anything over 500 I consider large. I "window shop" for jewelry often and of course spend time on PS, but don't have the cash flow to make 500+ purchases often.stracci2000|1466822127|4047970 said:
LLJsmom|1466824964|4048017 said:Actually, I think I must be really cheap. I think about things forever. Really. How often am I going to wear it? Will I still love it next week, month, year... How many different things can it go with. This goes for anything really. So to answer the question, usually $500 or over is large to me, for anything. But even if it's $20, I go through all those questions before I plop down money. And I always look for a return option. I am very hesitant about buying if I cannot bring it back.
This...... I like to get value for money too! I'll happily spend $1000 on a nice piece of jewellery, especially if it's preloved and a "bargain". I wouldn't spend that on a handbag or shoes, for instance.Queenie60|1466801431|4047750 said:Depends what the item is - for jewelry, anything over $3,000 is a large purchase. Furniture - any amount over $2,000 or so. We recently upgraded our audio/video system and spent $22,000 - I considered that a large purchase. Next week we will be upgrading our security system which will be about $4,000 - I consider that to be a large purchase. It varies - depending if it's a need or a want.
No I don't think you are cheap because it also depends what stage you are in life and how old you are and what you have done and been through if that makes sense. 20 years ago I would have had a different answer.Loves Vintage|1466855940|4048139 said:Ha! I must be really cheap, but I think $100 or more is a large purchase, on anything.
What's funny is i am about everything but jewelry. I can drop 700 on jewelry and be like "awesome, great deal me!" But if it's anything other than jewelry i start to get uncomfortable after $300 for most things. Then, like, things I just don't like to spend money on I'm like "50 dollars?!

haha I totally agree. It definitely depends on what I'm buying. I'm really hesitant to spend anything over $100 on an item of clothing, shoes, etc, since I feel like I could always find it for less and don't care about brand name things. But for jewelry I tend to think of 300-500 as a lot, and think very carefully about purchases in that range. DH and I are planning to renovate our kitchen soon, and the cost of that is terrifying to me (around 3K). But for things like furniture, I kind of accept that finding things under 1K is relatively rare, so when we moved I was more willing to accept high costs.Niel|1466856640|4048142 said:What's funny is i am about everything but jewelry.
