The beauty of adult money is that you don’t have to have the mind of an adult to own it. Sure, you could be responsible and make smart and calculated investments that will benefit you in the long run. But you don’t HAVE TO. After all, isn’t it much more fun to splurge on something silly and fun that you don’t really need?
We are not encouraging anyone to mindlessly throw away their money, but we do think that if there is something silly that you really love and can afford – go for it! You only live once.
You’ve probably heard of the TikTok trend #AdultMoney. Like the accompanying narration (“Adult money probs” by Jake Hall) goes: “Don’t get me wrong, being an adult and living on your own is pretty great. The only problem is I now have access to adult money, which means I can buy whatever I want, which means I end up buying shit like this and having zero regrets about it.”
Let’s take a look at some of the silliest and most unnecessary purchases that users decided to make with their so-called adult money and share with the world:
Choo-Choo, Here Comes the Sushi Train
As sushi lovers (hey, who isn’t?) this is a purchase we most certainly wouldn’t regret either. What’s to regret? A sushi train is a wonderful gadget that runs on batteries and replicates the always-fun experience of the Kaitenzushi (that’s a Japanese conveyor belt sushi restaurant) in the comfort of your own home! And the beauty is that it’s actually designed like a train!
In the original sushi train restaurant, the conveyor belt that travels through the establishment carries little plates of assorted sushi past the diners, who can take whatever they want. Now you can do this at home. You can either prepare your own sushi, or order takeout and put it on the little plates. And shhh… don’t tell anyone, but if you don’t like sushi or are in the mood for something else, you could use the sushi train to serve cheese and crackers, candy, cupcakes, or any other delicious finger food!
