What's The One Thing You Hate To Spend Money On?

WiseBread asks an interesting question this week: what’s your frugal obsession? You know, that one thing you can’t stand spending money on: “Some people refuse to pay for bottled water; others refuse to shell out $4 to rent a movie when they can get them from the library for free.” Responses so far include software, soft drinks at restaurants, and gift wrap.

Our personal issues are with laundry and home cleaning servcies—it just seems wrong, somehow, to pay for those luxuries unless you work 120 hour weeks or live in a 25-room house. We know it’s irrational, but that’s the point.
