What do you "waste" money on?

I admit this is inspired by the 400$ at Sephora post. Is there something you spend a lot of money on that some people might think is way too much to spend for that? A designer handbag, prestige makeup and/ or skincare, the hottest clothing labels?

My Mom has always been notoriously thrifty, but her splurge is antiques. I never understood how something just being old makes it valuable, unless it has historical significance or is a coin.

I could be accused of spending too much on health food and sometimes supplements. Case in point, this photo. This totally Un - tasty crap was 30$, but I bought it in the hopes it would help me on my never ending and futile quest for the perfect body. so i'm guilty too. Lol

Yankee Candles and new Nikes.

Every month or two I buy new candles and Nikes for DD, DH, and myself.

Have you ever tried bath and body works candles? I love them. My only complaint is that they burn too fast, but they smell really good.

Hmm. I don't buy much actual stuff, but I spend way too much money eating out.

When I do spend a lot, it's still not on anything "luxurious". I'm more likely to go on and health and beauty spree at Target than Sephora. I've also been known to overindulge in cleaning supplies.

I do love good coffee beans. Since I can't enjoy it without lots of cream and sugar, though, I try to refrain.

Weed.
I won't lie.
We spend more than what we pay for rent in weed.
We don't do anything else though. We're stuck at home with 4 kids everyday. So.
