The Blow List

Your Own Private Island

Earning bank is hard. Spending it can be just as difficult. Which is where The Blow List comes in. Each month, we at UD will comb through everything worthwhile to bring you the best, most ridiculous yet necessary ways to blow your stash. This month we go island shopping...because it's always better to own than rent.

For the same price as a slab of NYC hardwood floor, you can own a piece of surf, turf, and blue waters. Go in with friends, and you have yourself a little island party (just remember to fuel up the speedboat, Gilligan). The ones worth that second mortgage:
