    Now that the money is flowing like water, I've kicked it up to the 3rd or 4th cheapest wine.

    Dildos. Buy good, or don't bother. You run the risk of a vaginal/anal impairment/obstruction.

    • Shoes
    • Wine
    • Spirits (Kettle One, Johnny Black)
    • Beer (Heineken)
    • Meat & Produce
    • Vehicles
    • Ketchup (Heinz)
    • Cold Cuts (Boars Head)
    • Electronics
    • Vacations (there are never enough of them, so make them count!)
    • Education for your children
    • Neighborhood/School District you raise your family and live in

    Someday, go to A&P and have them slice up some Hartford Reserve low sodium turkey breast. It tastes like you roasted it on Thanksgiving, not like a cold cut. Just superior quality. The Hartford Reserve low sodium Virginia ham is equally good.
