What is Your Biggest Financial Vice?

I was thinking about what my biggest vices are when it comes to staying healthy. As it turns out, my #1 health/fitness vice is also my #1 financial vice eating out at lunch time. I really enjoy escaping from everyone and grabbing some lunch alone.

Unfortunately, eating out inevitably translates into less healthy meals and considerably larger expenditures than if I just packed a lunch. Assuming I do this 3-4 times a week, and estimating the “overage” at $6-8/meal, lets do the math. At an average of $7 for lunch, four times a week we would spend $28 a week. multiply that fifty weeks a year you come up with $1400. Over a thirty year time span $42,000

A much cheaper and healthier, but still enjoyable alternative (at least for the weekday lunch ritual) would be to pack a lunch and then skip out of the office when it’s time to eat.

What about you? What’s your biggest financial vice?

OK!!!

Comment 1: Nights out and new outfits.

Vice?

My greed for speed. Anyone out there at a snail's pace?

Just been overtaken by several snails!

Biggest financial vice? Online shopping! Especially QVC and HSN. And... thanks to DishNetwork... I can order by clicking a button... don't even have to call in!

A Cold November Evening in Northern California

It feels like someone slipped ice water between my shoulder blades and is letting it trickle down my spine. I turned the heat up last night, slept under three wool blankets and pulled both dogs under the blankets to bring up the heat. Sunny California. Not!
