I don't have money to waste, but up until a month ago it was cigarettes. A pack could last me 4 days to a week so it wasn't a big waste of money. But a waste of money nonetheless.

I love to buy things on eBay. But I get most of my clothes, bags and shoes there, so probably not really a waste

ebooks. Lots and lots and lots of ebooks. I think I have oh...around 900 ebooks on my kindle. And that doesn't include the physical books I own from before I bought my kindle. Ridiculous, I tell you!

I also spend ridiculous amounts of money on hair and face products along with playing mixstress for lotion bars because my hands and feet are beyond gross and need some TLC products that can be portable and go with me.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

Coffee - not just Starbucks but k-cups, bags of coffee, travel mugs, coffee machines, whatever I see that I might like. I love coffee.
Nail polish - I think I average a new one at least once a week
Shoes/boots - I have a lot less than a lot of people but I rarely buy a shoe that is under $100. The ladies I work with are constantly buying cheap shoes so they have a lot to rotate through. I would rather have a few (or quite a few) that last
Food - we eat out a lot, we are trying to be better about that in the new year. Also I pretty much buy whatever I want for little regard to price. I really need to stop that. I do try to bring lunch to work but eat out during the work week at least once. Also I splurge on kitchen things like expensive pans, gadgets, knives, etc. but I don't know why because I'm not a great cook.
Clothing and shoes for my child - I am always buying her stuff, not just because she grows out of it. Toys are my husband's thing. I tend to be the book buyer.

Those are the big ones. Most of the ladies I work with buy clothes, shoes, accessories, get their hair and nails done on a very regular basis. I am low maintenance in that respect. I have had 3 pedicures and 1 manicure in my life. I did buy a bunch of clothes when I was in the US a month ago but otherwise I'm a clearance rack shopper and don't shop all that frequently. That could be why I hate most of my wardrobe.

Eating out, definitely. And the drink to go with it. I could buy a bottle of wine for the same price as that one glass in a restaurant. But hell, no, I'm not giving it up.

Wurly and proud!

Skincare, wine and going out for dinner.

My company has free lunch for employees so I save a lot on that, but we go out to eat a lot.

DH lost his job last month, so I don't buy Starbucks anymore.
