Top ten tuesday … things i hate to spend money on

February 24, 2009 at 11:47 am (random, Top Ten Tuesday)


1.  Ad valorem tax – what a stinky way to spend money on your birthday!

2.  Cold medicine – it means someone’s sick.

3.  HOA fees – rarely does your money go to anything good.

4. Socks – how boring.

5. Diapers – gosh they go quickly but there’s no way I’d rather complain about that then go cloth!

6. Late Fees – oh I hate it when I find a bill underneath a mess of papers & realized I never paid it!

7. Life Insurance – I get it, but still no fun.

8. Emissions Testing – I don’t think it really accomplishes what it’s supposed to – just another way to get our money!

9. Birthday Cards – To me they’re over-rated … and over priced!

10. Anything that I later realize I had a coupon for!!!

And to top it off, all TEN of those have gotten me this week alone!!!

    I have to agree about the emissions testing. A big waste of money!

    Thankfully Emissions testing is free where I am. It used to cost us a pretty penny. Not sure why it is free now, but I will take it. I would also like to add to that list (since most of them speak to me). Library books that I neglected to take back and when I realize it the fines are so much that I could have purchased the materials I borrowed!
