Wasting Funds at the End of the Fiscal Year

I think we could save money if we did not waste the end of the Fiscal Year (FY) funds on unnecessary items just to use up the money. If we don't utilize all of the budget for one FY why can't it carry over to the next year's budget? Too much money is wasted on unnecessary items to spend the extra money just so we can ensure we get the same amount for the next year. If we don't really need what we are given then the budget should be readjusted to reflect what is actually being spent on legitimate items necessary for conducting business.
