Affordable luxuries

I’ve always thought the two luxuries that have the highest return on investment are shoe shines and maids.

  • Shoe shine – it’s pretty much like getting a brand new pair of shoes for $8.
  • Maid – A $40 to $60 investment for the typical city apartment dweller. Even once per month significantly improves the quality of your life (especially if you have 30-days worth of socks and underwear…never do laundry again!)

    Another affordable luxury – Nose hair clippers. Cheaper than small scissors at the corner liquor store but like a gatlin gun for your nose.

    Direct flights.

    Stop fucking around in random airports. If you can’t get there in one shot find another airline or pay more. It’s never THAT big of a difference.

    My affordable luxuries include — but are not limited to — extra virgin olive oil, basmati rice and Coca-Cola in real glass bottles (you have to go to the Mexican grocery store to get that — look for it while you’re getting the maid).

    And how is it that pud, of all people, should have a blog that accepts anonymous comments?
