How Not to Buy Wine

Sometimes a good Stilton proves to be better than a $30 bottle of wine.  The Billfold’s Evan DeSimone shares how the decision to buy one moderately priced bottle led to a spending spree spiral. It includes the “[dubious]” purchase of a “fancy wine bottle opener” for $17.50, a costly mini gift bag, a recommendable cheese plate, and a replacement for the original wine bottle, which he shattered in the wine shop’s parking lot. Funny thing is, guy doesn’t even drink wine. [The Billfold]
