15 Everyday Things Only The Richest Can Afford
What’s the priciest thing you currently have? Is it a fancy watch or a brand new car? Whatever it is, it sure can’t challenge the absurdity of the following objects. Not only are they super pricey, but most of these items are actually pretty trivial. Believe it or not, there’s such a thing as cheesy objects that can cost an arm and a leg. Today you’ll have the honor to take a look at everyday items that are pricey as hell. Indeed, it sure sounds like an amazing experience. But before we get started, allow us to tell you a few more details about these insane objects. It’s true that we spend a lot of time searching for the finer things in life. Awesome supercars and fancy jewelry have always been in the wet dreams of millions of people. So frankly, that’s hardly a surprise anyway. What comes as a great shock though is the weird price tag on other everyday objects, like toilet paper. Did you know that there’s a 24-carat gold toilet paper? We bet you didn’t. But again, these are perfectly normal everyday things to billionaires. From the 24-carat toilet roll to the diamond-encrusted flatiron, today we bring you 15 everyday things only the richest can afford.
15. A Chinese Green Tea that sells for 1,700 Yuan ($3,000 per kg)
Are you willing to spend $3,000 on a tea? Well, it’s not like we’re talking about a gigantic sum of money. However, who in their right mind would want to buy it? Apparently, it’s a special Chinese Oolong tea that’s best known as “Tieguanyin”. So if you’ve never heard of it, there’s a logical reason for it. This type of tea sells for $3,000 per kg. It offers a wonderful blend of chestnut flavor and can apparently be infused up to 7 times before the flavor is no longer there. The greatest surprise here is that this Chinese tea is actually named after the Buddhist Iron Goddess of Mercy. From the look of things, it almost sounds like you’ll have superpowers after a sip of Tieguanyin. Again, this is just another overly priced everyday thing that’s a no-no for the average consumer.
14. A Special Doorstop that costs $3,500
Who doesn’t want to feel a little breeze when it’s boiling hot outside? Back in ancient times, people used an item called the doorstop. Just kidding. Let’s not pretend that we’re hardly using it these days. Seriously, doorstops work wonders when there’s no air conditioning. So we just leave the door open and enjoy the fresh air. For the most part, these handy items look quite simple. However, there are also modern versions of doorstops, resembling a bouquet of flowers or other shapes. These cool items rarely cost over $25 so it really seems odd that there are more costly designs of the regular doorstop. For example, you can actually find concrete designs priced at $3,500. The item is designed by a guy named Tobias Wong. Well, he’s certainly gone a little overboard with its price tag.
13. The iPod earbuds with an 18-carat gold coating
After an exhausting day at the office, we all crave a little solitude. More often than not, we just long for relaxing tunes too.

You can still enjoy tunes over the radio or through your laptop. However, the most practical way is to use earbuds, especially when you’re on the go. They’re portable, easy to use and save you lots of precious time! Speaking of practical things, there’s nothing better than a new pair of earbuds. Some of us are even ready to dish out the big bucks for a new modern set of earbuds. In this sense, there’s a specific design of earbuds that feature genuine diamonds. Designed by a guy named Casa Di F., these earbuds are encrusted with 118 real diamonds. He thought that his high-end clients need something special; and there we have it – the shiny earbuds that cost $5,253.
12. Toilet Seats Made of Carbon Fiber aka The Royal Flush

Luckily, there are lots of aesthetically pleasing options for a fancy toilet seat. The most luxurious version we know of is the full carbon fiber toilet seat. Also, it’s made from the same material used in supercars, like Lamborghini or Ferrari. Allegedly, the whole package (toilet seat + bowl) costs around $10,000 and is known as the royal flush. So if you want to flush it down like royalty, this luxury will cost you at least $10,000.

There’s really no doubt that some people will do anything to gain more and more attention. This sure includes purchasing an item that seems to be 100 % useless.
