Clothes (including shoes and bags).  And I live in NYC where the sample sales are ridiculously tempting.  I was bad today at the Helmut Lang sample sale.  I spent $460 + tax but got $2330 worth of clothes.

Victoria’s Secret dresses. I’ve bought two in the past couple weeks, and I want to get one of them in a couple more colors because it’s so cute and flattering.

@newname_99:  E-books for sure! I usually get them from the library but there is always a wait. Sometimes I’m just too impatient to wait for it so I buy it (and feel a little guilty later).

I also have a problem with eating out. Sometimes after work I just do not want to do anything and I just want to go grab food somewhere. That adds up really quickly though.

Gasoline. I love to drive, and the costs of gas plus more frequent maintenance on my vehicle are the price I pay even when I’m being frugal in every other aspect of my budget.

Street vendors in the city. Also, now that it’s hot in the NYC area I find myself out 3-4x a week in the city and paying $28 in tolls each time! The DEVIL!!!

ETA: I love shoes but they are easy to resist bc I usually like the ones that are $500+. I have most MAC, Nars, MUFE, and other makeup products so that’s easy to resist also unless it is a new collection or to replace items.
