Last week DH was scornfully telling me about how his sister didn't want to spend $300 for a little plow to put on the front of her 4-wheeler to help clear her driveway. They spent about five grand on the 4-wheeler, take 3-4 vacations every year, have a BIG big screen television, etc., but don't want to fork out a few hundred for something that's actually useful. My friend and her family eat out several times a week. She hates to cook and loves food . She's admitted to me that they spend about $500 a month eating out DH and I are pretty frugal, haven't been on a vacation in years, don't even have cable/satellite TV, much less a big screen anything, and eat out once or twice a month. But we spend tons on our animals!! We agreed that we could probably afford to go on vacations if we didn't spend so much on our furred/feathered friends. But you know, they ARE our entertainment So we "waste" lots of money on our animals...What do you "waste" money on?
