Basically what you are doing is rewarding yourself with pleasure in the most effortless and impatient way. Tickling the pleasure points of brain.
Although I spend a considerable amount of money on intoxicating myself, only for the sole reason of finding happiness from the stress I have to take to reach my goals. Once you are in, you are in for life.
I have been a minimalist long before I even started working. Used to save money and only spend that saved cash on my hobbies and wants. The worst thing is my family really hates my life style and asks what are you gonna do with the money in the bank. They spend money like sh!t and expects me to follow their same life style.
I also find spending massive amount of cash on devices and PC as these things get outdated in no time and resale value is literally not even close to half in under 6 months. I'm just saying my views and do not mean to hurt the feelings of PC enthusiasts here
I am not joking but [MENTION=77264]Vyom[/MENTION] has a good set of life examples...
Whenever we are going to purchase a new tech, just take into account how many times had it changed/updated in the last 6 months. If you feel it is a constantly updating one, refrain yourself from pre ordering or early buying. Smartphones are the real examples for this. I bought my Lumia 920 for ~27k from Dubai, while the price around here was 34k. Though I had a good deal, 4 months later it had gone down to 19k; more than what I saved initially. What did I do with it during the 4 months period? Nothing. Of course, there was satisfaction, which went under the sea as soon as I came to know the price drop.
"The root of all suffering is desire.", words of wisdom by Buddha applies to life broadly and for smaller things too.
[MENTION=77264] Dont like beverages either, I prefer lemonade, black tea, sattu in summers (I dont remember which cereal flour it is but I like it )
but one of my guilty pleasures is cane-juice, and I spend 20 INR almost daily for that, returning from school.
