What are considered one-off expenses?

I have a horrible habit of doing this.

“Oh that’s a one-off.”

“So is this expense.”

“And this one too.”

But quite frankly, if it isn’t a daily occurrence, I consider it a one off expense.

Even if it’s a YEARLY occurrence like renewing my car insurance, or seeing the dentist.

I need another name for it.

It isn’t an emergency. It isn’t planned. And it may or may not be a yearly occurrence.

Thoughts?
