When I was 16 years old, I spent $55 on a ticket to see U2 at Winnipeg Stadium.
U2 was my favourite band at the time, and $55 was a lot to spend on a stadium show - far more than I had ever spent on a concert.
I wasn't about to let my favourite band pass through without seeing it, so I knew having that experience was something I would need to pay for - maybe even overpay.
The older I get, the more interested I become in experiences.
Given the choice at this point in my life, I don't buy things and gadgets if I can spend the money on experiences.
