Share Your Wife's Biggest Money Suck

I hate to promote stereotypes, but I predict "shoes" wins by a landslide.

Just a little while back, Holly wrote an entire post about how much I've been spending on jeans lately. In it, Holly took many tiny, ladylike stabs at my masculinity. Luckily, I am an extremely masculine man and was able to laugh it off while opening a bottle of beer with my teeth and wielding multiple power tools.

But seriously, the reason that my denim shopping made such good fodder for the blog was that it’s pretty unusual for me to spend serious money on clothes. Like most men, I spent many years of my life dressing like a complete slob. And trust me, those of you who still do the slob thing -- this way is better. So while Holly mocks, she also approves. Meanwhile, she’s been dropping dough on clothing, handbags and shoes without pause for all of our relationship. So what's her biggest money suck? No surprises here; I'm going to have to say shoes. Because the last time I had the misfortune of seeing the price tag on a pair, Holly swears I lost a little color and had to sit down.

Now, it’s your turn, guys. What’s your lady’s biggest money suck?
