Kylie Jenner reportedly spent $70,000 on designer clothes for her newborn. I don’t have to tell you that 70-grand is a lot of money to drop on clothes for a rapidly growing infant. Heck, $70,000 is a lot of money in general, especially when you consider that the average American makes about $50,000 a year. Here are some other things that Jenner could have spent that money on.
1. A Luxury Car
$70,000 can’t get you a Ferrari, but it can get you a luxury compact car from brands like Lexus, Jaguar and Mercedes-Benz.
2. A Year of College at a Private School
Degrees aren’t cheap. Tuition, fees, and room and board at Ithaca College come in at just under $60,000 for one year. That $70,000 would have been a great addition to a college fund, but I’m sure Kylie won’t have any problem saving for her baby’s education.
3. A Master’s Degree From Oxford
The price of a master’s degree varies school to school and program to program, but you can get one from one of the best universities in the world for less than the cost of baby Stormi’s first wardrobe (and that’s factoring in out-of-country tuition rates).
4. A 3-Bedroom House
In areas that aren’t in high demand, you can get a pretty nice 3-bedroom and 2-bath home and start a nice life for yourself for less than the price of an infant’s wardrobe.
5. Two Years of Rent on the Upper East Side of Manhattan
I’m surprised that $70,000 could stretch so far in such an elite area. Sure, it’ll only get you one bedroom, but that’s all you need.
6. A 2.5 Caret Tiffany Engagement Ring
The most expensive ring I could find on the Tiffany website (Tiffany Soleste® Round) costs $57,000. Custom rings can cost millions of dollars, but we’re on a budget.
7. These Weird Tiffany Candlesticks
I’m not really sure what the purpose of these are or why they’re so expensive, but they cost exactly $70,000.
8. Two 7-Eleven Franchises
That’s right! A person can start not one, but two 7-Eleven franchises for about $70,000. These convenient stores tend to see a steady flow of customers, so becoming a franchise owner would be a pretty good investment.
9. An RV
It turns out that RVs are ridiculously expensive. The only ones that cost less than $100,000 have to be hitched to a truck. These are still pretty nice for camping fanatics, but for some reason I don’t think Kylie is one.
