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.

1969 Chevelle SS, I built it during my high school years and I sold it recently for college, let's just say I can buy 2011 Camaro SS2 cash, right now if I wanted to.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
