What else, besides travelling, do u spend more money on, than u need to?

I have a heap of Body Shop products. I love their White Musk range.
Ridiculously expensive, but it smells so good.

Hihi, the body shop. I start sneezing upon entering those stores. (I can't help it.)

Music: CD's and Concerts
Football: I go to a couple of football matches every season.
Art: I try to collect a little bit of art. (It's starting to look like a small museum here)

But most of the money seems to be disappearing because of rent, (health)insurance, taxes, and bills, bills and bills.

Because I just moved away from home, my money seems to go into buying home appliances at the moment.. Just bought a washing machine, a waffle iron and a frying pan yesterday. And I paid my school fees for this month..
Massage school, here I come

I have a real think about beauty products and make up - l have to admit l like designer brands (which are not cheap - say about £25 for a tube of 200ml moisturiser!).

I have a heap of clothes which l buy wear once, forget about or take a dislike too!

Books - lm always buying books - there must be a cheaper way!

Jewellery - l love Tiffany silver jewellery - bought myself tear drop silver earings the last time l passed a Tiffany & l spent quite a bit of dosh on a Tag Heuer watch which lve wanted for years and years and l love it.

I well know for wasting cash - if l saved all this lot l could afford to travel the world business cash - but l do enjoy lifes luxuries - l work bloody hard for them!

I don't know if I waste too much money, but I spend a bit.

Last night I went through the last 6 months American Express statements and nearly had a heart attack.

Car is around 500 dollars a month alone.

Going out, mainly trying as much restaurants as possible

Books, although mainly related to travelling, I have several hundreds right now, from simple reading books to nicely illustrated more expensive ones.

Quoting james

500 in repayments?

Uhm, no, I pay cash for it, I think it's stupid to get a loan for something which after several years is nothing worth anymore.

120 dollar tax a month
25 dollar insurance a month
250-300 dollar diesel a month
100 dollar approx on maintenance.

Don't you just love our government with taxes on litre of diesel is over 1 euro!
