25 Crazy Things Rich People Bought Just Because They Could

While most of us usually try to get the best deal for the lowest price, there are people out there who actually take pride in doing the very opposite. Mainly rich people, who buy things just because they can. They want to own the most expensive things that are available, and why the heck not. They’re rich! What else are you supposed to do with all that money? (Rhetorical. Don’t answer that). There’s even a website that features insanely expensive, usually totally unnecessary stuff that rich people can buy to show off their wealth and affluence in the most ostentatious way. From gold backpacks, cell phones, bikes and shirts to a $50,000 kiss, a $115,000 lock of hair and even a human life. These wealthy people are definitely not reading our 25 ways to cut your spending and save money list. They don’t need to! They probably have enough money to last them a life time. In fact, they’d probably subscribe more to our most expensive yacht list than anything else (because every wealthy person needs a ridiculously expensive yacht). At any rate, if you’re interested in some of the most unnecessarily (but admittedly mind blowing) expensive and high end item’s you’ve ever seen, take a look at today’s list: 25 Crazy Things Rich People Bought Just Because They Could.
