Default my biggest regular waste of money is...

What is a regular (daily/weekly/monthly) indulgence you absolutely could live w/o but choose to splurge on anyway...for whatever reason?

(Plz don't say used books you buy from garage sales for $.25! LOL)

Daily - Lunch. Usually 5-15 a day

Weekly - drinking/hanging out on the weekends - 100 - 200, it gets higher if we cab to multiple places or there's a day game on and we are there all day eating and drinking, hopping around from place to place in search for more drinks

I'd give up the lunches before my social weekend activities. I'm just too lazy to make food or even go to the grocery store to get frozen lunches.

Starbucks
Lunch - I should bring mine but I'm too tired at night to pack it
Sirius - I should probably get rid of this now that I don't spend 2+ hours in the car anymore, but I do love it

The list used to be longer but I cut out my manis/pedis/facials.

My Devacurl products...no, wait, those are a necessity!

I'm really bad about not taking my lunch.

Same. And the hospital has such a fantastic salad bar, plus they have a hot meal that is always Weight Watchers friendly. My lunch is usually about $5 per day, which I am fine with.

My other indulgence is iTunes music and digital books. I try to keep it under control but yeah. No.

Same here and lunch costs me between 8-12 a day! I hate cooking (Saria will you marry me?) She probably wants to kill me instead.

Food. We like going out to nice restaurants, and we like cooking good food at home so we will often splurge on ingredients for a recipe.
