    Frittered away

    Would you please correct my grammar and punctuation in the following sentences. I have tried to use "fritter away" in them.

    1. David frittered away days Facebooking, gaming and watching TV.
    2. She felt she had frittered away her life.
    3. The children had frittered away all the money their father had left them after his death.
    4. The boy was frittering away days playing basketball when he should have been in school instead.

    Re: Frittered away

    They're OK. I'd put 'his' before 'days' in 1 and 4. 'Instead' is redundant in 5.
