A couple of cars I've had (about $20k each)

It may be a bit embarrassing compared to what some of the other answers will be (cars, houses, etc.)

Either my gaming PC or my Ibanez JS100, both around 1000$.

I just spent 21k on a car two weeks ago.

College, even though it's not an item, cost me about 50k.

A piece of property that I scooped up after the previous owners died. It was right around the same time as housing prices everywhere were dropping. The property was assessed (before the market collapse) at 5 times what I ended up paying for it. I felt pretty shrewd about that.

Yeah, you could describe it as somewhat second home-ish (although the previous owners lived there fulltime).

The house itself I don't care about. It's the land and location I like - about a mile or two outside the city limits of a growing town. Give it 10 or 20 years for the city limits to expand and zoning rules to get adjusted, and I'll be looking to sub-divide.

It'd either be my apartment or my car. Prolly the apartment. On a smaller scale; single item...my giant tv. Grouping...the mounds of clothing I've bought my gf.

I'm sure you've far exceeded that by now with beard care products over the years.

The laptop I'm currently on. It's not amazing but it does what I need it to. 3 Gig Memory and 160 Gig Hard Drive.

#34 Posted by jun_aka_pekto (15916 posts) -

Not counting a house.... a minivan.

#35 Posted by Spitfirer (2088 posts) -

Probably my laptop at around £400. I'm not counting my PC unless you consider all the new parts together when I last made a major upgrade. Even then, my laptop still cost more.

My dad bought me a macbook pro a year and a half ago. I'm saving up so I can buy a car in a few months.
#39 Posted by howlrunner13 (4390 posts) -

Most expensive item I've recieved is probably a Fender Super Champ XD ($300) for Christmas.

Most money I've spent at one time would be around $450. Two monitors and a graphics card.

The most expensive thing I have purchased is a car.
#41 Posted by WhiteKnight77 (12018 posts) -

The most expensive item I ever bought? I believe it was the Snap-On tool box I bought years ago. That cost more than the '82 S-15 I bought in '87. After those two, it would have to be my new camera set-up that I picked up the week of Thanksgiving.

#42 Posted by invisibletearsx (997 posts) -

Probably my laptop I'm using at the moment.

My house.
#45 Posted by Shottayouth13- (6752 posts) -

A $120 (including shipping) terabyte hard drive. Yeah, my parents buy pretty much everything for me.

On the receving side, I'd say my education from elementary to university.

#47 Posted by roulettethedog (10952 posts) -

A 1989 Ford F-250 for about $25,000. Never want a house ,so a car will be my most expensive thing ever.

#48 Posted by AussieePet (11424 posts) -

Wow everyone seems rich compared to me!

#49 Posted by Spitfirer (2088 posts) -

If I could make a guess on the next expensive item I'd buy, it would probably be a parachute rig costing anything from £1000 to £3500. Really nice ones fetch for £5000 but that's way too much for me. The lower bound's achieveable if I bought the container, main chute, reserve chute and the other bits and bobs separately and got the whole thing assembled by a certified rigger. For the whole thing in one, I'm talking the price of a car.

#50 Posted by lagreendown (1612 posts) -
Well besides a car the most I spent was 15,000 dollars on speakers for Djing
