9. Plus blowing sizeable bucks every week on losing lottery tickets

I know several people who have spent over $10,000 on lottery scratch- offs since it started in NC in 2006 and only a dozen times or so have they won anything and never more than $50 which they "reinvested" and lost most of their winnings.

Most of my friends who have blown thousands on lottery tickets frequently mention what new houses and vehicles they will buy when they win as if that is a real likelihood and not just a fantasy.
