    University. Aside from not, probably any of the thousand times I've ordered a takeaway.

    I've also spent hundreds on books that I couldn't possibly read as I bought them faster than I could read them :facepalm2:

    Living in halls at uni when I could have commuted. I spend over £5000 on accommodation (which I realise is actually quite cheap compared to other places) but I absolutely hate it and I'm considering dropping out so a massive part of me hates what I've done.

    My ex boyfriend. ******* never helped or paid a dime in the relationship despite being from a well of family while mine was below the breadline, it was of course all down to me. Must have wasted closed to a grand on him. :lol:

    After that, can't say I've regretted money I've spent to be honest. Unless I buy something then see it on sale a week later....pure regret.

    Candycrush. I don't use any of the cheats but my friends got annoyed with me for sending them game invites constantly so now I have to pay to get to every "next episode". I'm on level 1070 now and the small amounts of money add up worryingly. But it's so addictive!

    You don't have to pay to unlock episodes in Candy Crush, they unlock themselves after 3 days.

    I've wasted so much money that it would take me all day to answer this question. I suppose the most I wasted at once was when I booked a trip to Guatemala after uni and then backed out at the last minute.

    £1395 on a Burberry Coat that my gf rarely wears

    Nothing wrong with the coat, it's just that she's really afraid of the cold. So this winter she only steps outside in eskimo-like gear.

    Other things include:
    Mobile games, £300+
    PS4
