A thread on Reddit’s AskReddit section has thousands of people share the things that they see as a total waste of money. With rising inflation, a lot of people are reevaluating where they spend their limited dollars, especially on things where the value is questionable. So, responses to a recent post that asks the question, “What do you think is a complete waste of money?,” might help you to reconsider your next purchase.
Here are a few of the responses that will probably hit home with many of us:
- "Little edible gold flakes on food."
- "Buying a new phone every year."
- "Fake fingernails”
- "Obedience school for cats."
- "Crystals for their 'healing ability.'"
- "Food delivery through apps such as Uber Eats, Foodora, DoorDash, etc. Inflated menu prices to cover the cost of the platform cut and then the platform's service fees? Nah. I'm good."
- "Expensive clothing for babies and kids in general. Why pay so much for clothing your baby will wear for a few months?"
- "Extended warranty on low cost goods"
- "Skins in video games. 16 year old me wasted so much money in Overwatch..."
- "Luxury cars. I can’t imagine spending $75k+ on a car with high maintenance and insurance costs. I’d rather drive a Honda and retire a few years earlier."
- "Pre-ripped pants. Why the h*ll would you intentionally buy already messed up clothing. Congrats you paid more money for an inferior product."
