What do you spend money on...

...that if you had kiddos, you might not? (or at least, you wouldn't indulge as often)

For me:
Concert tickets
Restaurants
Make-up...I've become a crackMACaddict lately.
Weekend trips...already planning two more, and I just went on two of them.

For DH:
His second car (an old Dodge that's getting fixed up awesomely)
Guitars

For us, collectively:
Restaurants
Vacations
$avings!
Wine...we're getting really into this lately.

Um, I go out a lot. Like way too much. If dudes didn't supplement my drinking and dinner plan I'd be in trouble.

I also spend a stupid amount on fitness. Gym membership, training, extra dance classes here and there.

Annnnd clothes. I don't even post on fashion most of what I buy. I'm ridiculous.

ps - oh yeah, i save too Chat Icon

Re: What do you spend money on...

Eating out is the big one for us. That would have to get cut down big time if we have kids. Otherwise, just overall spending in general I'd have to watch more closely.

I'm currently in a very unique situation where my expenses are fairly low so I've been able to really spoil myself. Chat Icon

I'm taking full advantage of this because I know eventually it will come to an end.

Ok,this is sad-food & make up.Chat Icon
Oh & my 401K. I probably wouldnt'be able to put as much in as I do now.

I buy makeup on my lunch breaks at work just for something to do.

We don't ever use coupons or pay attention to sales for food & eat dinner out twice a week, and I buy my lunch & sometimes breakfast almost everyday in Manhatan.

I just bought a $150 bag & that was a huge guilt ridden splurge.

Really, I'm not living the life of luxury I should be! Chat Icon

Food! Eating out and buying food to fuel my cooking obsession.

Bills should be number 1....my mortgage alone soaks up most of our money.

Wine....my husbands collections....my dogs.

And fixing up the house...little by little.

Once a year vacations...passed one over this year due to buying the house...but hopefully next year.
