Outdoor, camping, sports, gear and apparel. I can't skimp on this.

Liquor, a nice bottle of vodka beats the alternative. You'll know why tomorrow.
Beer, im not too picky with. I like a good beer, but i drink it all.

Yeah, toilet paper should be good quality. But cooking for yourself, instead of going out, not only saves money,
but I'm certain I'm eating better than I would in most restaurants in my price range.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

things I'll definitely pay more for:

beer (good ingredients cost more), juice machine, paddle ball, fur lined sinks, dryer sheets, pudding, ice cubes, and of course, ostrich meat.....for the cat. I'm a vegetarian, and have found the best falafel sandwich is actually the least expensive!

Well there, of course, are many things on which it's best not to cheap out, but since it is my area of expertise; I would recommend that no-one cheap out on shirts/tiedyes, at shows: Many of the cut-rate tie dyes have not been washed, and will: turn your skin into a robe of many colors when you sweat; will ruin the other clothes in your wash load, indiscriminate of price or designer brand; and will fade in no-time due to the cheap, low quality dye, and failure to set the colors before sale.

WINTER CLOTHING !!!!!

If dressed properly for the outdoors from head to toe with quality gear, it's easy to be outside in winter



also automobile brakes and air bags

Funny you should mention that. Back when I was drinking I used to drink the cheap liquor in quantity, but was really picky about beer, and spent a lot of time with the imports and no cheap ones.

Chester makes an excellent point too. Eating out is expensive and less healthy.

Especially lunch at work for me. That adds up fast, and all the salt, cheese, Trans fats, etc.

I bring the classic PBJ these days, and some fruit.

Of course I never suffer from this problem.

I never find lot shirts that fit me anyway.
