There IS a confirmation system....
Here is how to get to it.....
1)click on the tools (on bottom right)
2)click on "i" button on the top right of the box
3)for the option of confirming donut spend...click "On"
I have tried it out and it does ask you to confirm it. As I only tried it for a "speed up" I'm not sure about an item purchase...was too scared to try it until I actually wanted to buys something...lol
Hope this helps
While collecting the taxes in my springfield I started the hound race in springfield downs. When the race was finished the "You won/lost" window opened directly under my finger. That way I reset the race timer spending 4 donuts that way. Other then most other speed-ups this cannot be canceled!
So please EA give me back my 4 donuts!
I did not even purchase anything ingame and I sure like hell would never spend donuts to speed up the stupid downs cool down.
I accidentally spent 12 donuts speeding something up and accidentally speed up the scratch ticket twice. Unfortunately we patriotic luck. There are PLENTY of us out there. The only good news is that you can turn on the MUST CONFIRM DONUTS SPENDING button so it will NEVER happen again.
Click on get more donuts, then click on the lower case i in the right hand corner, then change confirm donut spend to on.
That will do it. As I have said its default code already has the push notification set to on (that's where Homers voice comes into play telling us when a task is complete) but not the donut spending. I think it should be the other way around.
I hope this helped a little at least. Please click on solved if it did and if it didn't let me know and I will try to assist you more.

Happened today to me. I have "donut buy confirmation" on but I was collecting from numorous houses and during rapid clicking I must have mis-clicked and I think I accidentally purchased a speed up of a white house, even with confirmation turned on.
Frankly, I would love a donut purchase lock, or at least a lock on certain things. I don't mind spending donuts on virtual items or characters. At least in that mode you are in design mode and you know to be extra careful. But it's way to easy to click on a house and do an accendental speed up. I would never waste precious donuts on house income tax collection speed-up.
Seriously, I don't want 4 donuts in exchange for a measly $200 "now" when I already have $117,522,373 of virtual cash already!
