Not recently, but did so early and often, like a Chicago voter. :-D 

Biggest thing I bought expense wise was a Xerox Star for about $3K. 
Wife still brings it up whenever I complain she wasted money on yet

I ask her why did she buy uncomfortable shoes, and off we go repeat the
Star discussion.) :-)
