So when you have a lil' extra cash, what are you spending it on? What's extra money you ask... good question.

Well, a recent poll found in the Daily Mirror asked 2,000 people what they spend their disposable income on. It was done in England, but most of them translate to the US just fine. Here are the top ten things we spend our money on after our bills are taken care of. Or for some people, before their bills are paid:

  • Eating out at restaurants.
  • Vacations.
  • Clothes.
  • Entertainment, including things like movies.
  • Our hobbies. (I have a coin collection... not even ashamed to admit it!)
  • Books.
  • Going to the bar.
  • Our pets.
  • Gadgets and electronics.
  • Music or concert tickets.

Also, 30% of people in the poll said they'd probably have more disposable income if they were a little better at budgeting. Isn't that why they invented credit cards? Oh wait, bad advice.
