Back in the early days of League of Legends i somehow managed to spend 600$ on skins. My first experience with micro-transactions, since I've generally avoided them.

Needless to say, i rarely play anymore, and i will never be spending money on micro-transactions again.

Fallout 4. I bought it in hopes that it would run on Linux, because for awhile there it looked like it was on its way to running on Wine. It looks like the most recent version of Wine broke it though.

Alcohol sometimes, and getting take-aways, or unusual things to eat at the supermarket. I spend a lot of time thinking about how I might better have used the money.

I live around a lot of quite intense poverty, so it feels quite hard to justify spending the extra money on takeout or specialised food when it's cheaper to make simpler food at home.

I hate how unfair existence is and resent the world for the fact that I can have nice things while others are destitute, and always wonder if it would be meaningful or effective for me to spend less, save the money over time, and find a way to use it on a project. But usually I'm buying takeout because I'm struggling and can't bring myself to cook and clean. There are just a bunch of conflicting feelings that don't seem to go away even if rationalised, basically.

Digital music. I still enjoy the format of CDs and cassettes, but spending currency on mp3s has been, in retrospect, pretty fucking pointless. Glad I never dropped too much on that sort of thing and switched over to downloads while I still had a little money.

Soulseek is a program, and you can get FLACs most of the time if you really want them. I usually spring for 320kbps MP3s since they're easier to store and I don't have the ear to detect the difference most of the time.

Stuff that isn't on sale then I check a week later and its on sale.

That's a curse in our family. It seems like any time we buy something expensive it ends up going on sale a week later.

DVD-rw's are really useful! Er, you're probably talking about film DVDs though, aren't you..?

Both. I haven't had a working disk drive for years, but tons of worthless disks taking up storage space.

What do you use a DVD-rw for? I just use a usb stick.

A sense of permanence, you know? I use them for the same things (just about) as USBs-- whenever a new version of an OS I use is released, I make a CD. I spend a few minutes making a nice label with a permanent marker and all, jajaja.

It's really unnecessary, but handy-- if I didn't have any DVD-rws, I'd just use the same USB over and over again with no consistent image to lean back on since it'd always be set to the ``image of the week.''
