The average adult in the USA spends $1,497 a month on nonessential items. All told, that's roughly $18,000 a year on things we can all do without.

Those things you listed... that's called "life".

People work longer, sometimes two jobs. And with a family, have very little downtime. The take-aways, and impulse purchases are essential coping mechanisms in my opinion. This article is bullshit.

Rather than those pedestrian "rideshares", this author only pays for "essential" travel expenses. Like driving across the country on a whim.

I mean, I'm sure we can all easily afford essentials, like when we take our 15 day vacations driving across the country for "air", making sure that our children never have to *gasp* watch a repeat?! Remember, though -- cable tv is a "nonessential" you should feel bad about!

Remember, $91 a month for cable is RIDICULOUS "nonessential" spending. But paying $300 for 15 days, for a 5 year old, 2 year old, and 2 year old? That's just SOUND FINANCIAL ADVICE from our friends at MOTLEY FOOL! (At that rate it's $7,300 per year!)

All you have to do is give up eating and grooming, and you too can have a health insurance policy! And after you're finished depriving yourself of these relatively inexpensive pleasures, the economy will suffer and you'll be rewarded with a pay cut for your sacrifice. YAY!

Super psyched to live in a country where personal grooming and eating lunch are considered needless luxuries. The American Dream in all its glory!!

"... I was content chilling out in my parents' home in Brooklyn, and padding my bank account all the while." Must be nice to have parents who can afford to give you $1,500 a month, did they cut back on "nonessentials"?

Pretty sure I just watched dozens of celebrities fly into NYC to dress up like Capitol residents from the Hunger Games. I’m good with my “nonessential” items.

Ah yes. Keep the middle & working class on the hamster wheel, shame them into slavery with talk of “hard work”, hammer them with fiscal austerity, Wall Street bailouts and a failing healthcare system (that is a handout to lobbies & insurance Cos) that nearly bankrupts them. 👏🏻👏🏻

Wait...so you’re telling me the only purpose of making money is to pay my bare minimum bills/expenses and that’s it? I can’t have nice things once in a while? There’s more to life than incessant servitude to my job, USA YESTERDAY.

How is personal grooming a “nonessential” when mostly all employment requires a person to stay clean, hair neat, etc

I plan to never personally groom again! Think of the money I will save! I would also never need a ride share because I’d smell so bad no one would let me in their car ever again!
