Money does, in fact, make the world go round and everybody is pursuing them. Money is so important in our society that you are considered successful only when you get rich. The question that remains is what do you do once you finally manage to get rich and earn all the money you’ve ever wanted?
There are some people who actually managed to make more money than they can spend and this is where extravagant purchases come in. Just to give an example of how really rich people spend their money on useless things you should note that Beyonce once paid $100,000 on a pair of gold plated leggings. This sounds like something that only crazy people would do, especially when most of us don’t even have $1,000 in our pockets. Without further ado, let’s take a look at some outrageous purchases that rich people have made.
