This week’s weirdest ways to spend money

Here are this week’s weirdest ways to spend money.

October 25, 2019

You work hard to earn it… so why wouldn’t you work hard to burn it? Here are some of the most creative money pits we stumbled across this week:

  • Ultimate Advent Calendar, $112k: Leave it to Tiffany & Co. The luxury jewelry shop is selling an advent calendar filled with silver, gold, diamonds, and perfume for that special someone born with a diamond-encrusted platinum spoon in their mouth.
  • “Sold Out Chicken Sandwich” costume, $79.95: Time’s running out to get your Halloween costumes, people… and if you haven’t heard enough about Popeyes’ sold-out chicken sandos, this sexy sandwich costume could really make your night sizzle (and yes, they’re still in stock — the costumes, at least).
  • Urwerk Atomic Master Control Watch, $2.7m: The 2-part watch consists of a 70-pound atomic “base unit” that keeps the most accurate time on the planet and a mechanical wristwatch that syncs to it. It’s for those people in your life who like their time accurate to within 1 second every 317 years.
  • All-in-One Drinks System, $554: Lang’s water machine is arguably the world’s fanciest water filter (and mineralizer). If you’ve been looking for a machine that takes 2.5L of water, filters it for 6 minutes, and gives you 1.5L of, um, fresher-tasting water — look no further, friends.
