We all remember student life. We all remember that belt-tightening. 

And we all remember vowing that, once we start earning cash, we would never go back. 

That's why those of us with a fresh few bob in our pockets will throw our cash at anyone who'll take it... and we mean anyone.

1. A salad drier

Or 'salad spinner' to those who want to make it sound even more ridiculous.


2. Pastry forks

Normal forks are just so intense and aggressive.

3. An expensive fleece 

Usually costing upwards of €200, and preferably of the equestrian and/or golf variety.

Tommy  Hilfiger Jacket

4. Car tax

Sigh. It's finally time.

5. 40,000 cushions 

But not to lie on like hippies, oh no.

As ornaments.

6. Good wine

Because apparently wine with a price higher than €9 has a different taste. Who knew.

7. Book ends

I mean. Why even HAVE books?!

8. Tap water bottles 

To be kept in the fridge door for all eternity.

9. A water filter

10. Cereal containers

No more crumpling up the plastic pocket inside for you, Richie Rich.


11. Foliage

Like incense, but for grown-ups.

13. Dog mop shoes

Put that lazy dog of yours to work. 

Pet  Sweep

14 In fact, dog clothing in general

How else could they possibly express themselves.

15. A meat tenderiser 

Well are you going to eat un-tenderised meat like animals?!

16. Evian mineral water spray

Literally just water in a can.

17. Sleep masks

For the curtains just don't fulfil your dark, dark needs.

18. Pizza scissors

Hangovers get harder when you can afford to drink everything – and these help.

19. And finally, a ridiculously fancy birdhouse

Nicer than your own digs, with the potential for a higher standard of hygiene and a stronger political background.
