I was having a discussion with someone this past week, and had to admit
that while I try to be frugal in nearly every part of my life, I simply want
a long, hot shower - sometimes I take a half hour one. <this came up because
our new house has no natural gas hookup, and I've heard that the electric
water heaters can have trouble keeping up with usage>

So this is probably the area where I'm not so frugal, and I allow myself
to indulge.

I'd have you publicly flogged if you hadnt enjoyed that so much the last time.

Storage heaters can.

I bought a new car instead of farting around with used cars.

I am the least frugal with purchasing things which will reduce my expenses
in the long term. Things like Energy Star appliances which will use less
energy, a car which gets good gas mileage, etc.

Oh please, that's like answering an interviewer's question of "tell me
one fault about you" with "I work too hard."

That may actually be MORE frugal than a used car in my
opinion
