THIS IS FOR FUN FOLKS. I know there are a tons of uber rich folks and they earned their dough so they get to spend it however they like. Let's not turn this into some sort of reflection on society or the reason why people can't save for retirement.



lol, went to do a little Christmas shopping at the mall today and ran across these.


and thought wow!! 500 bucks for some pool shoes. not sure I would ever by them if I could but as my daddy use to say "they wouldn't sell them if someone wasn't buying them"


you can find them here just in case you know someone who has every thing and have to get her a gift

Those are designer brand slides, Givenchy. Look up the cost of their other products.

Here's another pet related gift, could not believe my eyes when I saw it. Was reading an article and the ad next to it was for dog dna testing. For $329 (the 2 pack on Amazon), you can find out if your dog's ancestors were coyotes or wolves and make a family tree for your dog.

I don't know how much they cost because they don't post prices but I got a Loro Piana catalog in the mail today and they had, I kid you not, mink numbers in bright vivid colors. Something for everyone I guess.

Just looked it up. I guess they are key chains. $380.

lol, the next size down was a fraction of that price. It wasn't even that much smaller. I'm not sure why they think 20% bigger means they should charge 6x more.
