Well, I earn about five figures net a month, but have a mortgage per month that is more than this monitor. My wife is supportive of my hobbies but, as a compromise, we drive around in a 20 year old car that gets us from A to B instead of the AMG SLS I wanted. My marriage is more of a limit on what I spend because my wife is kind of a hippie whereas I'm a Savile Row + Hermes tie kind of guy.
The balance works for us. I personally wish that the "premium" of everything was widely available because, for me, x's being premium speaks of the property of x itself, and not its 'scarcity' or 'rarity'. I wish some of the three michelin star restaurants I go to would do open days, and if I had enough money for that I might do that as a 'charity' and pick some foodies who've dreamt about a restaurant and book it out for them to try. There's a place in rural Slovenia I want to try.
PS: living in Eastern Europe has its perks - if I was a single guy I'd romp around in Prague as an appetizer.
Basically, I'm a rational hedonist. I encourage everyone to enjoy their pleasures. It can be a wonderful life for us, who get to sit here debating the qualities of a computer monitor while the vast majority of this planet is far less fortunate than we are, irrespective of our monthly earnings.
