Financial discussion?  If anything doesn't belong on this list,
discussing how other people are wrong and how they should spend their
money seems more irrelevant, off topic, and controversial to me.

It's his money, he can spend it how he wants.  If you don't agree with
him, no one is forcing you to spend your money the same way.

This seems unproductive, and if any topic was discussed to death here,
that was.  It's not going away, people are always going to try to
pinch a penny here or there.  No amount of logic, reasoning,
discussion, or debate will ever prevent people from seeking out
"cheaper" solutions.
