  1. A very expensive nail file and hand lotion kid from one of the island (shopping carts) on a shopping mall... I still cannot believe I wasn't strong enough to say: NO! LEAVE ME ALONE!!*but I learned my lesson! stay away from those shopping carts at the mall!
  2. a fuzzy kitten blanket after buying a snuggie
  3. An extended warranty on a flat-panel TV. I later found out a similar warranty was available directly through the manufacturer for 1/2 the price.
  4. Microdermabrasion when getting a facial. After all, we all want to look younger!
  5. My sister was suckered into buying a leash and "walking vest" for her daughter's Guinea Pig. It slipped out on it's first "walk."
  6. A Costco membership is, in itself, admittedly foolish. But somehow I let myself get talked into the "Executive" membership a few years ago when I signed up. Double the price and virtually none of the "executive privileges" I would have expected (i.e., extended shopping hours). Just more spend-to-save trickery.
  7. Crazy bread: one for $1.99 or two for $2.00... don't know why I'd want another dozen breadsticks, but that's what I bought.
  8. high-end push mower (Snapper) just because it had a cup holder.
  9. "Want a steak with that salad?" No kidding!
  10. A very expensive nail file and hand lotion kid from one of the island (shopping carts) on a shopping mall... I still cannot believe I wasn't strong enough to say: NO! LEAVE ME ALONE!!*but I learned my lesson! stay away from those shopping carts at the mall!
