Normal people and celebrities have a completely different set of standards when it comes to purchasing non-essential items. For instance, a person living life on a tight budget may splurge a little on clothing or buy themselves a small piece of jewelry. They live within tight budgets but can sometimes find their way to purchase something of minimal value. Going out to dinner can be a high expense for a normal person. Money is a premium and it cannot be wasted on excessive items. This is in stark contrast to the way celebrities live their lives.
