No matter how bad or good your financial situation is, what’s one thing you will always spend money on? Do you feel guilty? 

According to a poll released this week by Bankrate.comTwo-thirds of Americans are watching what they spend each month. 

Last week we asked listener’s to tell us their stories of what they will not give up – even when their budgets are tight. Many listeners wrote in. 

Nanette Karapetian, a Psychoanalyst in Los Angeles, spoke to Marketplace Weekend about your guilty pleasures.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
