Not Worth the Money

So SavvySugar put out an article "Not Worth the Money" to go along with the "Worth the Money" article I posted a few days ago.

Here's the List:
  • Bottled water
  • Brand name cleaning supplies, meds, etc. (this is especially true with meds!)
  • First class tickets on domestic flights (save them for international flights)
  • DVDs (think about the cost-per-use before buying)
  • Regular lunches out (clearly, I very much agree with it. not only will you save money but you can get a much healthier lunch by brown-bagging it)
  • Premium gas (when you don't need it)
  • Magazines without a subscription (most annual subscriptions cost less than $20 but at newsstands, magazine cost at least $4)
  • Meals out that you could easily make yourself (so true - and usually it tastes much better using fresh ingredients at home. it may take a little time and effort but save those dollars for meals that are special and definitely can't make at home)
  • Upgrading your rental car (a rental car is not a status symbol)
  • Bottles of wine at restaurants
  • Detergents that's for darks only

What do you all this of this list? Do you agree?
