What Do You Want to Buy, but You Can’t Afford It? People Responded.

A pool.

All I want in life is my own pool in my backyard that is surrounded by a fence so I can cool off, read, and relax in there whenever I feel like it.

I don’t even care if I live in a really s**tty house…I just want that pool…

And hopefully someday I’ll be able to do that, but for now it’s just a dream, folks…

AskReddit users talked about what they want to buy that they can’t afford.

Take a look.

1. Out of control right now.

“A house.

Looking on zillow and seeing housing that’s considered safe, clean, and in a good area starts at 500k and that’s just depressing.”

2. Just want to be comfortable.

“A future where I can live comfortably.

Not rich.

Just not having to choose between paying all of rent and electricity or food.”

3. Sounds great.

“A mountain cottage deep in the wilderness. With endless views, forests on its doorstep and a stream nearby.

No neighbours for miles, plenty of wildlife and a massive fireplace that is on permanently when the snows arrive.”

4. Hit the road.

“A Sprinter van that’s been converted into an RV.

I would take that thing camping everywhere.”

5. Get in the tub.

“A hot tub. I’ve got a number of health issues and sitting in the hot water is extremely helpful.

I know there are super cheap ones that are inflatable and for like one person, but my dad had one of those and got an electric shock touching the water after having it only a few months, so now I’m afraid of the real cheap ones.”

6. That’s rough.

“New teeth.

It’s like thousands and thousands of dollars to get dental implants.

It sucks.”

7. Anything else?

“A car. A farm. Some animals to keep me company.

And a fancy water colouring set.

Oh and my dream wardrobe.”

8. Still love it.

“A boat.

I grew up sailing and love it, but it’s a total waste of a lot of money.”

9. Just DIY.

“A haircut. Even one from like Great Clips.

My hair is so heavy and it’s so hot where I live.

But money is too tight.”

10. Gotta stay dry.

“A really good, actually water-resistant raincoat and/or a pair of rain trousers.

For context, I live in the Netherlands where it rains for maybe 3/4 of the year (this is how it feels,anyway) and as I’m on a bike for much of that, a good raincoat or other rain gear is necessary.

But the good ones are pretty expensive so I just end up buying the cheap ones, which wear and tear pretty quick, so I guess in the long run I’m spending more money but I can’t avoid it. It’s like the Vime’s Boots theory but with rain gear.”

11. Sad.

“My babies.

Chemo made me infertile at 34 before I had the chance to have a baby.

I have 12 embryos in a testube. Can’t afford to use them.”

12. Oooooo!

“A week in the Maldives.

In one of those dreamy bungalows over the turquoise waters.”

13. I’m with you!

“An island to live out the remainder of days on.

Strolling up and down the beach, sleeping under coconut trees in a hammock, fishing, swimming and generally living a quiet and peaceful life to the end!”
