That is so true.  I have never ever bought even a McDonald's specialty coffee.  I have bought gift cards for people at Starbucks and walk out with only that.  The ideal of saying an order with 7 or more different names to one drink and paying double digit $ makes no financial sense to me. 

 

Never had a pedicure and only one manicure back in 1981.  Helping a friend with her new license.  I can do my nails at home while I drink my Folgers.

I refuse to pay for streaming services----the only exception is Amazon Prime which I pay a fee strictly to get super fast delivery of my merchandise purchases, thankfully it also includes Prime Video which includes NFL Thursday Night Football ( I am an NFL fan)----But as far as Netflix, Disney+/ESPN +, HBO Max, Apple TV, Sling TV, Paramount, You Tube...NO SALE!!!!  Although I have used a couple of the "free" streaming services....

 

Expensive Smart Phones---Tracfone is good enough for me.....

 

Expensive purses!!!!
