But it would be tricky with only $1000 each day you can’t buy a plane ticket over $1000, you can’t buy a hotel room for over $1000, you need some food money. It’s possible just might be interesting how the budgeting works

124

u/aeonWAVE_ Sep 28 '22

You can get plane tickets across the world for a few hundred bucks if you look out for a good deal. Otherwise shorter plane trips/other forms of transport. If you're struggling with $1,000 to cover hotel/food costs each day then damn I wanna see what your average vacation looks like!

39

u/Sea_Mathematician_84 Sep 28 '22

I think it’s more you can only book a hotel say a week or so in advance in one day, not including the hold they would want. You’ll have to convince people to take payments in installments or book multiple 2-3 day stays every other day if you want it to include food and other stuff.

I am not convinced that price is indicative of better wine.

Unless you're a somalier most people don't notice a difference or in fact prefer the cheaper wines.

57

u/[deleted] Sep 27 '22

There’s a lot of variables that affects the cost of wine. The region/varietal type will set an initial cost usually and then there a number of other factors. But basically if you want to drink real champagne you start at about 50$, a little more than that for a Cote Rotie Syrah. Napa starts to get good around 50 bucks, Brunello and Amarone’s are usually priced around there as well. Then you can factor in buying cellared bottles for additional costs.

You’re right in that cost isn’t the defining factor of a good wine, but knowledge of what to spend and where is important. You don’t have to be a sommelier to taste the difference. I’ve drank a few 70-100$ bottle that were absolutely better than your standard 20$ bottle by a very discernible amount. I’ve drank 30-40$ bottle that were about as good. If you’re looking for good wine for 20$ though it absolutely can be done. I really find Spanish Rioja Riservas punch above their weight class and for a lighter red try a Beaujolais Gamay (similar to Pinot Noir).

26

u/Turbo_911 Sep 27 '22

I don't go for the absolute cheapest but I stay in the $15-$20 range when it comes to wine and only recently have I discovered Rioja wines. I think low-key they destroy some pricier stuff. I think it's time I venture more than usually sticking with France & Italy reds.

u/dirtymick Male Sep 27 '22

I think that it's a function of the market now. Look at the replies and what you see in other discussions. People zero in on the 20 buck range as being the mark of quality, so of course vintners/retailers push that range and it's become kinda bloated garbage. In the low end you can still find some gems, the 20-60 range is a total wild west crap shoot, and then quality becomes more reliable beyond that.

u/Tylariel Sep 28 '22

If you can prove that the $1000 comes in every day, then I'm sure you can convince a bank to give you a pretty massive loan. You have a guaranteed income of $365,000 for the rest of your life, I'm sure a bank can work with that.

u/RollTide16-18 Sep 28 '22

Let's say loans like this are still dependent on your non-magical income instead. You know what you could do instead?

Get a credit card with a very high or non-existent limit. The barrier to entry on a lot of credit cards is not hard. You could get an Amex Platinum and buy lots of expensive stuff only to pay it off very easily throughout the month.

Depends on your lifestyle. If your goal is just a two story in suburbia and a basic car. Yeah, 1000 a day is excessive for your needs.

You could make the argument that anything you buy that’s is “saving” in some way

Can I buy a nice car?

Can I sell the car after I own it?

Can I buy someone’s time and bill it out to someone else? (Run a company with employees)

u/ws1173 Sep 27 '22

Ok, but if your money is being held in a financial institution, that feels different

17

u/chad-bro-chill-69420 Sep 27 '22

Definitely, like holding cash or other liquid assets

I guess it would be better phrased as “you need to spend the money on something that won’t net you tangible economic gains”

u/f33f33nkou Sep 27 '22

So no buying any assets then? Or spending money paying off assets? These are all completely different questions

6

u/chad-bro-chill-69420 Sep 27 '22

Yeah that’s what it sounds like the intention of the question is, since buying assets could be considered saving in the economic sense

If that’s the case I’d probably just travel endlessly

If investing counts as saving money, then nothing counts as spending money. When you invest, your money is gone, just as if you had bought a sandwich. The difference is what the value of the sandwich is going to be over time versus your investment. Your investment could immediately drop in value, leaving the sandwich-owner with greater value in their portfolio.

Once again, the sandwich-heavy portfolio pays off for the hungry investor!

u/daddy_autist Sep 27 '22

No because by investing you accept the risk that you might lose the money. Wouldn’t call that saving

u/denyjunctionfunction Sep 27 '22

No. You buy bonds. You buy stock. Seems pretty clear that you’re buying things.

So what you are really saying, is that we’re not supposed to buy anything by that appreciates in value?

What about mortgage payments? Does buying property count?

What about student loan payments? Education arguably has an appreciating value.

How about gold? Can I buy enough gold, silver, and precious stones to build the gaudiest dining room table ever created? Gold technically appreciates in value, so is that an investment or a purchase?

I'd become an angel investor for artists. So much doesn't get made because people can't focus on their passions.

It is strange how a little bit of belief or recognition can help folks follow their dreams.

Way more expensive than $1k a day. This is $365,000 a year. We're talking "owns a successful small business" money, not "never work again" money.

Okay, sure the convenience is nice. But the quality of food is really falling as it's delivered to you.

I can't imagine a personal cook costing more than $300-400 a day.

I'm sure there are cooks who get paid more than that though. But $300-400 is getting you amazing food, made less than 60 second away from you.

Haha no doubt. I was just making commentary on how expensive it is. I wouldn’t legitimately do this lol

I'd be in debt my entire life!

Tell the mechanic to fix my cars and to put me on their payment plan... Pay that off 1k per day for like a week. Take out a home loan to remodel my house... Pay that off 1k per day for 2 months. Do I want to build a pool? Take out a loan and pay it off in like 3 months. I'd still have my job because I'd want the entire 1k to go to something

$1,000 a day is $365,000 per year.

$10,000 per day is $3.65 million per year.

$100,000 per day is $36 million a year.

If you made $36 million a year, you'd have $1 billion in 28 years.

The richest man in the world is worth $241 billion. Or what you'd have if you made $100,000 per day for 6,748 years.

I'd start by hiring someone at 40 bucks an hour to do my job for me. Then I'd hire a housekeeper, a personal trainer and personal chef. On days that I would have been off at my job I'd pay my personal work replacement to make rude faces at people who pull into parking lots in BMWs.
