Stop wasting your hard-earned money on these items. Here’s the top items you should never spend more money on.
As one person said, “No reason to pay $10 for a 30-pill bottle of Benadryl, when Walmart and Amazon sell generic 365-pill bottles for $2.” When it comes to over-the-counter medication, generic brands are just as effective as name brands and cost a fraction of the price.
The First Date
Always make your first date something that people can easily walk away from. As one person said, “Never EVER waste your time and money on someone that you don’t know that well.” Going for a coffee, or a walk in the park, is a great way to get to know someone without spending a lot of money.
The cheapest wall calendar will work just fine. There’s no need to spend a lot of money on a fancy calendar when you can get one for a few dollars at your local dollar store.
Bleach and Cleaning Products
As one person said, “If you read the label, they often have the same stuff in about the same concentration for sometimes more than half the price.” Generic cleaning products are just as effective as name brands and cost a lot less.
Private label oats are no different than Quaker or Mom’s Best. As one person said, “Private label oats are no different than quaker or mom’s best. Though, with quaker you get a sturdy cardboard tube that you can reuse.” Save money by buying private label oats instead of name brands.
“The best tacos you’ll ever have will be in some hole in the wall in a strip mall, not the trendy place with exposed brick and driftwood bar stools.” Another person said, “For tamales, the absolute best ones are sold out the back of a rusty SUV in the laundromat parking lot.” Save money and get the best Mexican food by going to local, authentic places.
As one person said, “If you buy a safety razor, it’s like $25 or $80 if you want the kind with three blades. And the replacement blades are ridiculously cheap. Then you never need to buy expensive plastic razors again.” Save money in the long run by investing in a safety razor.
Tools for First-Time Use
If it’s your first time using a tool, it’s best to go for a cheaper option. If you end up using it often, then you can invest in a good quality tool. There’s no need to overspend on something you may not use again.
Cables for Technical Devices
As one person said, “Go to Amazon and pay cheap prices.” Cables for technical devices can be incredibly expensive at retail stores. Save money by buying them online for a fraction of the price.
As one person said, “Not buying those stupid “warranties” on every electronics device ever. No Walmart, I don’t need a three-year warranty. Just let me buy this mouse, please.” Warranties on electronics can be expensive and often unnecessary. Save money by skipping the warranty and taking good care of your devices.
Adopting a Pet
As one person said, “It’s not necessarily “cheaping out on”, but if you’d like a pet, go to your local shelter because a lot of those pets there will simply live and die in a cage without a home. It’s best to give them a home and save them from that.” Adopting a pet from a shelter is not only a great way to save money, but it’s also a way to give a loving home to an animal in need.
