What are some little things you never or rarely buy because they are to expensive or unfrugal....

I'd like to buy Wisk detergent. I used to get Purex because it was cheapest but have started buying others on sale like arm and hammer because I didn't feel Purex was doing a great job. I have a bottle of Wisk for making the laundry pretreat in TWG and use it straight on spots that won't come out and it usually does the trick better than the rest.

Ben and Jerry's ice cream...need I say more?

Return address labels, not a big expense but cheaper to write it yourself.

yes, I'd like to buy nuts, dried fruits, dates and all that stuff more often but instead I wait till there is a good sale...and that's not often

I would make cheesecake from scratch more often but it's kind of expensive...

I would buy more colors of nailpolish but haven't found a deal where I can get them that cheap...and if there IS a good sale all good colors are gone when i get there..

I would get Glad bags or Hefty but they are just soo expensive so instead I use Ruffies. Actually the kind of ruffies I get now isn't as thin as the scented ones we used to buy so it's not so bad.

My list could go on and on......;) . A few would be fruit out of season..I just can't afford high prices. Salad greens all year long...again high prices. Deli meat for sandwiches (it's a rare treat and only when on sale) and specialty breads.

I'd love to buy all organic foods, but wow they cost a lot! I have started buying organic milk more often and I buy Laura's lean beef every so often, but I wish I could afford to buy all organic products all the time.
