How would you say in Yiddish 'paying through the nose', overpaying, paying without considering the price
איך מתארים ביידיש לשלם מחיר יקר, בלי חשבון

צאָלן אין הימל אַרײַן

tsoln in himl arayn

paying through the sky (roof)

לשלם לתוך השמים
(מחירים עד לשמים)

Yiddish is rich with expressions. In fact, sometimes the same phrase can be said in a number of different ways. I try to bring the unique ones, where it is is not obvious from the literal translation what the expression means.
