I have a question for you: Do you like luxury things? Things which are of a great quality and expensive ones? Do you like to spend your vacation in a luxury hotel? If you don't have enough money for such things at the moment do you at least like to watch at nice pictures of such things? Dream about them?

i really dont go for expensive stuff but i do go for great quality. and whenever i do go out on vacations, i dont spend on luxury hotels for practicality. Besides, whenever i go out on vacations, i always go out with my friends and not all of them would be able to afford all that. And i dont drool at the pictures nor dream about them because there is always a cheaper alternative. Life is hard and all expenses are rocketing sky high. we can enjoy stuff even though it aint that expensive.

I don't have the money to spend on luxury items. I do love looking at them in the stores though. It's always fun to daydream about things that we can't have.

I am just a simple type of person, simple things which are not expensive can make me happy, maybe because I diddnt grew up in luxury and we are just average type of family. As long as i have all the things that i needed it is not necessary to be expensive.

I grew up in a very poor family, but I love luxury things. I love to look at nice pictures and I am willing to lead a rich lifestyle, better than in my childhood.

yeah, I know what you mean. But I think this is not only with luxury things, this happens with everything in our life.

Well, maybe you can't afford them now, but you don't know what will happen to you next year! you can be rich and that's why you can start dreaming about luxury things right now.

I am not interested in luxury products. Because they are too expensive and I don't think it's reasonable. I never want to spend lots of money in an expensive luxury hotel when I have a travel. Because the hotel is a place for me to stay for a while and it doesn't need to be so expensive. I prefer to spend my money on the vacation like eating, shopping and so on. I love China

God helps those who help themselves...so, yes. I believe that savings and frugality are important and admirable. Even though you may have to live today does not mean that you should not make plans for tomorrow. Perhaps those who are advising you to be prepared have lived in a time or place which was different from your current situation and thereby learned a valuable lesson which they are trying to pass on to you. It is easier to learn from others than for each individual to learn everything all over again on their own. I would take their advice and make sure that I was prepared for the future.

Well, it is good at least to dream. We can dream about anything we want, why don't dream about better life? ;)

I do like luxury things but I do not have the money for them. I would like to stay in luxy hotels only if I can afford them. I can only have what I can afford.

I am more of a comfort-person rather than a luxury-person. I am not really comfortable in extremely luxurious surroundings. I am more likely to camp than to stay in a luxury hotel. Material things are not very important to me; my family and friends are what matter.

I think I like luxury thing if I was affordable for them! For example, I would be happy to reserve a 6 stars resort hotel instead of a 4 stars hotel if I had the money; I would be more than happy to reserve first class air plane ticket instead of being squeezed in a tiny seat for 16 hours flight to Asia, things like that; I am not a big fan of brand name stuff though.

well..i think that the problem isn't if someone likes or not luxury things...personally I like them, also if I don't have so much money to buy those things.The point is:if you say "ok..i don't like those things" because you have no money, you should continue to think it also if you'll get some money!!

I think sometimes we like or want to have such luxurious things. But they are not so nencessary for happy living. Simple living and high thinking is also very important and righty said. Happiness depends on how we live and think positively. thank you.

Dear friend, I do like it very much moreover some are expensive too that are not affordable for me. But I do like to have it. Moreover it also depends upon its usefulness and its other qualities too. Still I hope it is a part of those consumer world who do values these kinds of luxury and mostly who like to live in luxury life style.

I think all of us really wants luxury things but nowadays practicality is needed so buying luxury items is just a waste of money.

I like items of quality, but I am not obsessed with obtaining them. I am more interested in things that are useful and that are of good quality for their uses, than I am for any kind of status. When I travel I like to stay in a nice hotel, but not one that is so expensive that it is beyond my budget.

I'm sure there are some luxury items I would absolutely love but for the most part things that are too fancy or upscale make me kind of uncomfortable. Like I would be too afraid of wrecking them to really enjoy them. As for hotels we usually go for something cheaper (not really scummy though) because we try to spend as much time outside the room as possible. When it comes to vehicles I actually prefer driving something a few years old, otherwise every little ding, scratch and spill would be heart breaking. I'm pretty conservative with money and try to live simply. But that's not to say I wouldn't love to own a set of 600 thread count sheets!

I've been struggling financially all my life and I've quit wanting luxury things. Although I would like to buy the best of what little I need, I realize I'll probably never get to so I don't even bother to dream. When I get catalogs in the mail they go right into the recycling bin, I don't even look at them. Why bother?
