New slang?

When my sister said it, I thought she was being weird. Now I've seen someone else using the word, so it must be a known slang term. But, why would you say "spendy" when "expensive" is not much longer? Really, spendy? Of course, the two people I've heard use this term are from Minnesota and Iowa, so maybe it's regional (I can hope).

I had a friend that used to say 'spensif'. :)

I just thought of another term that already exists - pricey. Two syllables, and it has the benefit of being an actual real word. :-)

Re: Spendy
Ya think?

Spendy, indeed. What's wrong with pricey? Same number of syllables, but it's a real word. :-)
