You can actually take a dip in the ‘new status symbol,’ because it’s not the biggest house or the nicest car anymore! If you want your friends and neighbors to know you’ve made it, invest in a hot tub. According to a new report, possessing a jacuzzi rockets the owner to the top of the social food chain. You don’t have to ‘keep up with the Jones’s’ anymore, unless they too have a jacuzzi in their backyard! I personally am not a huge fan of the hot tub….there are lots of other things that I would prefer if money was no object! What about YOU?
A hot tub or jacuzzi actually topped a list of ultimate status symbols for both men and women, with 69 percent citing it as proof someone had made it – closely followed by a walk-in wardrobe. I would LOVE to have a nice big walk in closet, but not as a ‘status symbol’….only because I love to keep my clothes and shoes and purses all neat and organized and it’s hard to do in the tiny little closet that I have right now!
When I was younger, I remember thinking…“one day I will have a Lincoln Mark 8 in my driveway that I bought and paid for myself, and when that happens, I will know that I finally made it” and all my wild dreams had come true!
If money was no object and the sky was the limit, what item would be the ultimate splurge? What purchase do you feel someone needs to make before you feel that they have arrived?
