    Flex your MGTOW lifestyle a bit here

    We often post about how much easier it is to stack some cash due to a MGTOW lifestyle.
    So when you do crack open the vault to spend some it, what do you spend it on?
    Open to all things. Don't care what it is. Travel, toys of any kind, cars, whatever.

    I'm into vintage stereo equipment. I've got a real sweet system from the 1970's. Vintage Harmon Kardon receiver. 12" 3way speakers, turn table for vinyl records, and 5 disc cd changer. I am a thrift shop music junkie. Always stopping at resale stores, garage sales for vinyl LP's or CD's. I just love how much music I can buy for a dollar or two.

    Since I was old enough to drive I've been into cars and hot rods. Owned many over the years. Got rid of it all 10 years or so at divorce time. No choice. Just a few months ago I righted that wrong. Purchased a super mint 5 speed manual, V8, original 21,000 mile, 1991 Camaro convertible. I live in a rural area. Lots of amazing country roads to blast around on. Incredible fun road trips.

    About 10 years ago I was in a bankruptcy attorneys office after divorce. I was within a hair of needing to do so. Managed to avoid going down for that. With the ex wife gone from my life and wallet. I think I've come back from the ashes damn well. Paid cash for the toys. Plus I didn't have to discuss it, ask permission, or beg anyone to buy the stuff. I am way more proud of that than anything else.

    I play guitar. I have a Martin D-28. I play Bluegrass. Flatpicking. Don't touch electric.

    I have money to go to the pub and wear nice clean clothes. I'm 40 and I see so many guys acting like it's their living room. It's gross and pitiful. It's like they don't have a hobby or interest besides going to simp on the bartender thinking being there every day is not showing her your an alcoholic. I go once every couple of weeks and I enjoy the female attention. Usually it's just the bartender sucking up for tips but it still feels good. Still get standard $1 per drink. Women in these situations (customers) are looking to fuck, not make a life with. I'm starting to age out of this lifestyle and I have heart failure so shouldn't be drinking but what else can I do?

    I lift weights. That's pretty solitary though. I'll ask for a spot but I don't have any buddies at the gym. Not many real friends, maybe 10, but lots of acquaintances who come up to say hi and stuff.

    My brother is 8 years in with a woman who has told her kid (he met her when he was 2) that he is his father. She isolated him away from all his family. Moved hours away. When they do visit my parents my mother said she won't allow him to speak. She talks over him giving answers to any questions. She had him block me on Facebook and my cell number. She's inheriting my parents house and putting me onto the street.

    I don't collect anything though. I used to spend it all on drugs on the weekend but now I just save it. I'd rather be partying though.

    Drove an old beater pickup I got from the old man forever. It was ok around town, but nothing you'd want to take on a trip. Now have a Chevy Silverado that's been a six-year project. Everything north of the rear end is either new, or better than new. And not just the motor, any consumable you could name was replaced too. It did its first road trip last month, and it kicked ass. It doesn't push you back in the seat like a muscle car does, its motor is more of a towing package. But it climbs hills like Jack the bear, and that's what I wanted. Since I'm not motorcycle touring any more, I needed a long-range touring rig, and the Silverado is going to be it. Still need a shell or camper or some sort, then I'll be set.

    On the home front, I got the still the neighbor and I went in on, and a big book collection. The cat eats top grade cat food. If I see something I like, and it don't cost that much, I buy it. With no woman on board, I don't have to scrimp and save unless I want to.

    Re: Flex your MGTOW lifestyle a bit here

    I've talked about this a bit before. I work full-time. I live alone with my dog. I take my dog on weekend adventures. I snowboard in the winter, I play guitar daily. I learn a lot- science, math, engineering, languages, stoicism, investing. Anything that interests me. I travel with my buddies- we've been all over the world really. I exercise. Really, it's a dream. I truly love having my time to myself. It's bad enough I have to give 40 hours a week to someone else, I certainly don't want to give more of life to another person. But, my job is pretty easy, they leave me alone and I make good money. Certainly enough to support my fairly lifestyle and build for early retirement.

    Good grief! That's terrible! Can you make your parents aware of her diabolical plan? It sounds like your mother already sees at least some of what's going on.

    Re: Flex your MGTOW lifestyle a bit here

    I'm like O.G. I love to shop thrift stores. As you guys know my other house had a fire. Lost everything. I decorated my new living room for less than $100. Got new furniture, big flat screen HD tv, and more.

    I also like to splurge on movies at the thrift store. Import video games on Ebay. Still way cheaper than women.

    I cut people out of my life and saved so much money.
    Stay away from women. They will only break your heart.

    Very cool vibe from all the ways you guy's spoil yourselves!

    Got a laugh out of Tool's post. Slips this into the middle of his post like it's no big deal. Guy has traveled the world, and mentions it a casual as a trip to the corner fast food joint.
    I travel with my buddies- we've been all over the world really.
    Frog what year is that Silverado? You say you want a camper? I ask because I've been buying broken campers. I fix em up and flip them. Had some unreal luck with the last four I did. I had them all done and was waiting to sell em in the spring. Then Covid hit. That spring camper prices went nuts. Everybody wanted to camp, to keep their distance from others on vacation. I cleaned up the cash. Sold all 4 in a day and a half.

    Forever nice job on the living room redo. Keep up with the never buy new when used will do. One of my prized thrift items is my silverware. Bought it all for 10 cents an item. Bought the heavy duty old school stuff. Not one piece matches another! I will never get rid of it. Always reminds me of how unimportant to me that stuff is. Bet there isn't a married guy out there where cupcake would tolerate that!

    Haha, reading it now, looks like a brag. My point is just that I travel with my buddies, usually twice a year. We've been international, domestic etc. We don't really see tourist crap though, we're outdoorsy types. So there's usually a lot of that. I certainly don't miss trips with girls. Yeah, hotel sex is cool, but shopping and expensive dinners? Nein danke

    That's cool! Many of my dishes do not match. Or cups. Or table chairs. I never understood what it is about the human brain that so easily falls to the apparently obsessive notion of the "perfect" table setting: the dinner plates must match, and glasses, and silverware, and cloth napkins, and then the optional napkin rings (napkin rings!).

    Ok, so dishes and glasses are sold in packs of 6 or 8 or 12 and they are matched in the box, so some of that uniformity is decided for the buyer. Little kids, though, seem to enjoy the variety. "Today I got the green plate!" etc.

    My house is all mine baby, a lot of pinball machines, an old time cash register, a phonograph player/maker, a few gumball machines, old photographic cameras, a few old stereos from 60s and 70s including a nice console, a 60s jukebox, electric beer and soda pop signs. But nothing reproduction that is specifically manufactured for the home retro market; these are all the real deal. I have an advertising prop from a photofinisher where I used to work in the 70s, a fake Kodak Instamatic camera with electric "flashcube". I tell everyone it makes posters, until they realize I am pulling their leg:



    Girls/women who come over are marveled and curious, and when they were younger they might make an unnecessary comment about how they couldn't have my kind of decor, but at my age ain't no one trying to bag me, and anybody who knows me well enough to get an invite to the house already sees me as completely independent and self-sufficient. So ladies, just admire, compliment, and make fun of me when I won't know.

    Re: Flex your MGTOW lifestyle a bit here

    Guitars. I have some cheaper ones that I love but I also love me the expensive American made ones! Gibson's and Fender's. I would love to get a 50's Stratocaster reissue at the moment, it doesn't cost all that much but I am still weighing up different Strat models and options. I don't want to have too many of one type either. I would also love a '58 Gibson Les Paul reissue but that one is around $9000 down here. I have a Les Paul Standard 60's already so I am hardly suffering.

    Asides from guitars I don't care about much else. Travel doesn't do it for me. Women are boring. Food I prefer to make myself. Nowhere I really want to go. I like home

    Unboxxed reminded me of something. I don't deal with women unless I have no choice. As you gentlemen know Im very outspoken. Landlord was doing spot checks and brought wifey along. She decided to make her comments saying "Oh you can tell it's just a straight man here. Men don't know how to decorate ". I ended this Karen's career early. I simply told her that I can decorate however I want as long as its not illegal materials or damaging to the property. She shit herself . My landlord just pretended to inspect the other rooms .

    None of my dishware or silverware whatever you call it match. I drink my coffee from a mug that says world's greatest grandpa. I don't even have kids. Lol. My plates are some set I got from the thrift store for like 2 bucks .

    I stick to gaming & go for ride's to get a reminder on how dumb fucking fast bikes are for less than 10grand, have fancy exhaust on my FZ07 - sounds like a V8 before it starts going to 4k+ RPM's. Cheap hobbies till I got more dough sitting inside investments, will eventually get a bike for winter to drift in the snow like the insane retard that I know I can be! Look forward to that day & may as well get a 3rd dual-sport while I'm at it.

    Re: Flex your MGTOW lifestyle a bit here

    I like to travel but covid and travel bans have pretty much killed that. My flight to China in May just got canceled, so I guess I'd have to put on hold any out-of-country travel plans for another two years or so. I used to just pick up and go to Vegas for the weekend (have a friend who lives there), I'll probably start doing that again.

    I have four boa constrictors. My biggest snake is slowly outgrowing its enclosure, so I plan to build one big permanent one from scratch...can't wait to start on that project. I've only ever owned snakes but I've been thinking lately about adding iguanas to my collection. They are fascinating creatures.

    I spend money on books as well, mostly philosophical books and a little bit of everything else.

    Lastly, I just ordered a Graphite Roland AE-10G Aerophone Digital Wind Instrument. Awaiting its arrival later in the week.

    Re: Flex your MGTOW lifestyle a bit here

    My ex wife was a hoarder and a slob who was addicted to shopping and reality tv.

    With her gone I now live in a nice clean quiet home that is fully paid for. I've built a big shop building in my back yard that's about the same size as the house. I found an early jeep not long ago that I'm working on.
    Prior to covid I was about 3 years from retirement but that's been delayed a bit but I'll get there before I turn 60 if Washington doesn't completely fuck up the economy. Even if they do I'm in a position to weather it better than most.

    Life is good.

    Re: Flex your MGTOW lifestyle a bit here

    I travel a lot. Vacationing with my buddies who are divorced and red pilled as well. Going to Vegas tomorrow. But as mentioned before, we've been all over the world together. Sold my fancy car because I really don't need it anymore and bought an older Lexus with absolutely zero issues. Like to ride my Harley on weekends, or just bopping around during the week.
    I invest in high quality food, mainly red meats and wild fish. Used to eat low grade food with the ex because that's all she wanted to eat. I drink high grade scotch, vodka and tequila, and smoke quality cigars these days. I also spend money going to live music venues, but also flea markets and antique fairs.

    The Silverado's an 89, with a 350 built around the smallest hydraulic roller in the Comp Cams catalog. Pretty much a towing cam, but it gets that empty truck right down the road.

    Am probably going to go with a shell. I've driven big, overloaded campers, and they take the fun out of it. A shell is still pretty classy compared to a tent. Glad you made some money though.

    There's an off-road riding area near my home, it's got over 60 miles of trails. Some are too steep for me or motorcycle only, but there's still probably 40 miles I can chose from. On a weekday it's never crowded.
    After borrowing a beater for a year, I got a Yamaha Raptor. More of a sports car than an off roader. But off-road ATV's only have one or two gears, the Raptor has a five speed with motorcycle clutch. It's way faster than me, but it runs good going slow too. A good thing.

    I'm saving up for a side by side. You set in them, and on a dirt road or easy trail their no harder than driving a car. I could take friends then or go farther by myself. ATVs are a lot of fun, and not that dangerous if you don't ride like a loon.
