We all have friends who are keen and dedicated to saving money by making deals here and there. We also have friends or families who are the exact opposite. They are keen to spend money. Sometimes, they spend ridiculous amounts on things that they do not need. Have you seen your non-frugal friend make a purchase that did not make any sense to you? Here are some perfect examples from the web.
Never Eating Anything That Didn’t Come in a Wrapper or Box
One person says her ex was so obsessed with wrapped food that he never ate anything that didn’t come in a box or wrapped. This pushed their grocery bills very high, as whenever he went to the fridge and did not find his food in stock, he would panic.
Eating Takeaways Every Single Night
Another spent over 400 sterling pounds a month ordering eat-outs every day and complained every time that his account was in overdraft. He hated cooking.
Leasing New Cars Every 3-4 Years
One person wondered how his brother leased cars every 3-4 years to keep up appearances despite having so much debt. The brother could not fathom driving an old car and could not afford a new car outright.

Getting Acrylic Nails Done Every Two Weeks at $50 per Appointment
One person says her family members always complain about being broke, but they never miss their fortnightly nail appointments, where they leave $50 each per session. She earns more than everyone but cannot fathom spending such on nails per month.

Once the Food Goes Cold It Becomes Worthless
