It’s official: people waste money. Whether we know it or not, there is always something most people waste money on. Food, wants that we view as needs, and other small items manage to cut a whole in our wallets. Those small things can add up fast. In our Facebook group, we often discuss things we waste money on, and give one another solutions to save on these items. This small list are the top 20 things we’ve agreed most people waste money on, including ourselves.
- Eating Fast Food
- Eating at Restaurants
- Cable TV
- Online shopping (sorry, Amazon)
- Late fees
- Bank fees
- Kids clothes
- Monthly subscriptions
- Date nights
- Adult beverages (blame it on the…)
- Gym memberships
- Bottled water
- Trips to the salon
Most of these cut me right to the core, because we used to waste money on them (or still do). The best part is there are solutions to cutting down or eliminating most of these, and start saving immediately.
