"When I was young, I thought that money was the most important thing in life; now that I am old, I know that it is."

– Oscar Wilde

Rumor has it Boise's most affluent residents enjoy a lifestyle outfitted with accoutrements and amenities the blue-collar crowd couldn't envisage. Conspicuous consumption, luxury goods, and exclusive services are practically baked in to upper crust living. And we've heard it's pretty sweet.

While many of us are content with low thread counts, 30-year mortgages, and adding water to empty'ish shampoo bottles, now and then we catch ourselves wondering what it would be to live like Boise's aristocracy.

We flirt with the idea of owning a personal Starbuck's like Tommy Lee had on Cribs. We're proud of our rich altar ego for donating a few million to a worthy charity on our way to San Tropez. The tax write-off is just a fringe benefit.

It's usually around the time that we're searching for a rumpled .35 coupon at the bottom of our purse that we snap out of it. Name brand cereal be pricey, ya'll.

But before we embark upon another coupon recon, we compiled a list of bougie amenities Boise's elites are rumored to enjoy, that we'd love to experience.
