In the first week of this month I participated in Blogelina’s 100 comments on my blog post event.  I composed a post entitled 10 Things We Hate Spending Our Hard Earned Money On and I actually had only nine items. I asked my readers and new visitors to please comment and let me know what they hate to spend their hard earned money on.

I had a lot of comments and after it was all said and done, 48 more items to add to my previous list.  Here is my original list:

  1. Electricity
  2. Cigarettes
  3. Supplements I can’t use
  4. Dentist
  5. Gasoline
  6. Junk Food
  7. Traffic Tickets
  8. Late Fees
  9. Lottery Tickets

And now for the items my visitors hate spending their hard earned money on (and I can agree with many of these items as well!)

  1. Water Bill utility (multiple people disliked this one)
  2. Buying underwear
  3. Toys
  4. Vegetables and Fruits that have no taste

By the way… it was fun and excruciating to participate in the event.  Sylver Blaque guest posted at Blogelina’s and vented her frustration in How to Make Your Blog More Comment Friendly and Part 2 at her own blog Blog Commenting: Kill the Joker and Kick CAPTCHA to the Curb!

Do you have anything to add to the list?  🙂
