As humans, we all have to buy things eventually. In order to buy things, we have a method of exchanging bits of paper or chunks of metal for those items that have real-world use. Sometimes we even use imaginary bits of coin to convince others to give us real, tangible items!

It's a fascinating subject, but rather than discuss the method of payment, why don't we talk about what we've purchased? It can be anything, from food to a house, as long as it involved the exchange of some sort of currency.

For example:

Today, I bought a candy bar at the local 7-Eleven. It tasted stale and was a very disappointing experience.

I want my money back.

I decided to treat myself on Friday since I just got paid - so I bought PLGE, a Sombra nendoroid and put down half the price to preorder Pokemon Sword. $200 well spent.

Just bought Mario Maker 2 last Friday, and took the opportunity to pre order the Link's Awakening remake as well as Pokemon Sword and Shield. I don't usually pre order games, but there were 2 other people in the store to get MM2 as well, the person in front of me walked out with the game, I walked out with the game, the person behind me did not walk out with the game, so I decided I wouldn't risk it after that close call X3

It's adorable when it stares into the distance and has existential crises. It's difficult to earn its trust.
I bought some notebooks with dot paper! They were on clearance so I snatched up 3. :3c

I can't say whether I'm really satisfied with them yet, since I have 10 more sketchbooks to finish before I even think about starting these, but I've already put some Undivine stickers on them to claim them.

Basil, peaches, and some instant curry because even internet gremlins need to eat sometime, lmao.

But if we're talking about something other than groceries, a ticket to a Van Gogh documentary that was only showing this morning. He's my absolute favorite artist and one of my favorite historical figures, and the film basically chronicled his entire life, set off against his paintings, to explain how his art style had evolved and to disentangle some of the myths behind his life. It was hella fascinating—I never really thought about how much his religious background fed into his work, but it makes sense, given that he wasn't always an artist, to put it lightly. Orrrrr in other words, money well spent, ngl.

Has dedicated her life to the Blue Lions + Marianne and considers them her children.
Stardew Valley for the Switch! The game always looked cute to me, and as someone who lives on a farm, it's interesting and relaxing to farm while sitting my bed. It's all the accomplishment and none of the back pain, and that's a win win.

Oh? My favorite Japanese power metal band is making its debut in the US at a rock festival next month?

It's only $100 to get in?

It's only 6 hours away so I only need 1 night at a hotel?

Sold! R.I.P. dreams of buying a revised switch for better battery life this month.

She tries her best, but doesn't succeed. She gets what she wants but not what she needs.

With the pokedex number of 493, this Pokemon is essentially Arceus and fully intends to let the power get to his head.
A T-Shirt from a Les Miserables production.
It cost me 35 dollars and it was too small.

I broke down and traded in my old switch for a new revision. I couldn't avoid the battery gains - I probably do 80% of my gameplay docked, but when I'm handheld it's usually for longer periods of time, so it's 100% worth it. Also, my day 1 switch has always had joycon issues and ran hot (to the point the heat cycles actually broke the exhaust grill plastic), so those should see minor improvements too.

Side note, I can't believe GameStop was still offering $200 trade on the original version.

hi
Found a Splatoon shirt on sale for only £2.90 so I figured why not. It fits very well and I love how it looks! Although I am worried about how much of my wardrobe is starting to become black t-shirts with fandom stuff on them...

I bought some new window trim molding for my car, because I'm sick of seeing the crumbling, disintegrating rubber every morning. Now to figure out how to install it without taking to the auto shop...

Side note - I still can't figure out why the rubber was basically destroyed on a 4 year old car. Must be some really, really cheap trim...
