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.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
