CNN Money's Top 10 Money Wasters

Read the CNN article on Top 10 Money Wasters today.  It's always good to be reminded of things like this.

These are the culprits, according to CNN Money.

1. ATM fees
    I'd have to be careful of these.  Time to check my bank account rules.

2. Lottery tickets 
    Luckily I don't buy any!

3. Gourmet coffee
    I totally agree!  Fortunately I am now allergic to coffee and nescafe :)

4. Cigarettes
    So glad that I don't smoke. 

5. Infomercial impulse buys
    Not a problem for me.

6. Brand name groceries
    Guilty!

7. Eating Out
    Yes, this IS expensive.

8. Unused Gym Memberships
    Phew!  I don't have any :D because I believe in running around my house.. ha ha ha

9. Daily Internet Deals
    GROUPON!!!  Well, so far I've only bought one and that's for photobooks (for the many photos I have in my hard drive which never  
    see the light of day.  I have to watch my book buying though.

10. Bundled cable or phone services
      I do think sometimes of the Astro packages I pay for but hardly ever have the time to watch.  Time to downgrade, I think.
