WHY TULALA MAINE MENDOZA: THINKING OF THE WEDDING & THE KIDS

IN THE RIGHT TIME.

AMAZING EXPENSIVE THINGS 


If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to have a million dollars you probably only thought about the cars, the yachts and the bling, and overlooked the details like what kind of toilet seat or fancy tennis ball cans you’d use. We tracked down 24 of the most ridiculously expensive everyday items you could blow your wad on.


Concrete Aalto Doorstop – $3500

While the rest of us are using cinderblocks we found outside for doorstops, somewhere in some mansion there’s a chunk of cement holding a door open worth $3500. You may (but probably don’t) notice that this doorstop is shaped like an Alvar Aalto Savoy vase and that’s because it was cast in an original vase which was then shattered to let out the mold. While the Aalto doorstop looks pretty cool, it may just be a waste of a perfectly good vase (and $3500). mattermatters.com


Another Notion of Possibility Box Cutter – $95

What better men’s gift than a $95 box cutter?? Someone who’s spending $95 on a box cutter probably doesn’t do a lot of box cutting, so this solid nickel chrome plated box cutter is probably more of a display piece. Engraved with “Another notion of possibility,” this ordinary object intends to blur the lines between “art” and “stuff”. Perhaps the the answer lies in how you use it. citizen-citizen.com


Posh Instant Noodles – $43

Yep, even instant noodles come in luxury form. For $43 a cup, you can have one of 100 exclusive Pot Noodle cups. Each posh noodle comes in a hand-flocked gold leaf pot and because you like to be civilized while you eat your instant noodles, it also comes with a fork and table linen. One good thing about the exorbitant price tag: the proceeds go to charity so you can help the less fortunate while you indulge. Source


Renova Colored Toilet Paper – $20

If you’re tired of wiping your ass with dollar bills you can spend that cash on some colored toilet paper. While it’s probably just as much of a waste of money, at least Renova colored toilet paper is much softer than cash. A 3 pack sets you back $20 but if you’re obsessive enough to color coordinate EVERYTHING in your bathroom than you won’t mind the expense. satinbox.com


Glace Balls of Ice – $40

Ice cubes are for squares. VIPs know that the really good ice comes in hand carved spheres of ice made from Canadian purified water. Now instead of paying too much for a bottle of water you can drop 8 bones on just the ice instead. On the bright side ice balls supposedly don’t dilute your equally expensive drink and cool it evenly. glace-ice.com


Gold Backpack – $1650

Where’s the fun in being incredibly rich unless you’re also incredibly flashy? The gold rucksack by the Billionaire Boys Club features their trademark diamond dollar pattern, making an excessively expensive item even more over the top. With only 4 of these available at $1650 it’s anyone’s guess at how long before they sell out. bbcicecream.com

Diamond Encrusted Bluetooth Headset – $50000

If your wife is concerned that her big ugly plastic bluetooth is overpowering her gold and diamond earrings, why not compromise? Oh this diamond encrusted bluetooth headset is for you? Well it’s good to know that if you have enough money you can wear any crazy accessory and still be confident in your masculinity. Source


Goldplated Staples – $175

If you’re really rich, you know that displaying your wealth goes beyond flashy clothes and a luxury car… a true measure of wealth is all in the details. You can’t possibly expect anyone to fully understand just how filthy rich you really are unless even your staples are gold plated. It may not get any more excessive than gold staples packaged in a velvet jewelry box sitting on top of your desk. oooms.nl


Gold Light Switch – $250

Any respectable modern home owner wouldn’t be caught dead with a clapper, but that doesn’t mean rich people have to get out of bed to turn off a light themselves. How absurd! No, they have a gold wireless light switch encased in Lucite at their bedside. What’s $250 to never be bothered with something so tedious again? areaware.com


Luxury Frisbees – $305

Your old plastic frisbee may hold a special place in your heart, but it doesn’t reflect your penchant for frivolous luxury items quite the same way the Leather Flying Disc Geoffrey Parker does. These fancy frisbees fly surprisingly far, although you’ll probably never toss one in the yard for fear of tossing away $305.  That’s an expensive game of Ultimate Frisbee


Tiffany Tennis Ball Can – $1500

Be honest, the only reason you even play tennis is to network with the other rich guys at your country club. Since you’re playing to impress, why not get a fancy can to keep your balls in? Of course because it’s Tiffany, this particular tennis ball can is made of sterling silver and will set you back $1500. tiffany.com


Louis Vuitton Skateboard – $8,250

If you’re a skater you probably have no interest in a Louis Vuitton skateboard. But to be fair, anyone interested in a Louis Vuitton skateboard for over $8000 probably isn’t too interested in skateboarding either. This is a great example of how being rich is all about being one of 3 possible owners of a weird designer collectible that isn’t intended for use. The board premiered at the launch of their new location in SoHo where you could also snag one of 70 $250 T-shirts.



Nesmuk Diamond Studded Knife – $39600

As it turns out the world’s sharpest knife is also the world’s most expensive. And for reasons we can’t understand comes with a matching ring, although for $39600 you’d expect a little something extra. This pricey piece of cutlery consists of a carbon steel blade and a sterling silver handle adorned with 8 diamonds.
