What do you spend the most money on when you shop?

When shopping for "extras" (not staples like food or household items) what do you tend to spend the most money on? Is it clothes, home decor, candles, music, jewelry?

  • Groceries! I like to get my kids to eat fresh veggies and fruits --other than junk, so , I go to the supermarket frequently. I also purchase lots of soymilk for them to drink. So, that is where the money is.

  • Typically we DONT spend money on extras unless we need to because extras are what cause debt. If it's not something we really need or is very important to us then we don't buy it. However, if I compiled all the "extras" we've bought in the past year I'd say that it goes in this order (5=least money spent on and 1=most money spent on)

    1. Church tithes/special offerings
    2. Books (I love to read)
    3. Eating out
    4. Gifts, usually I buy from people who make their own homemade items.
