Money Wasters

People Who Waste Money:
Ok, let's start with things that qualify as "a waste of money."
  • Designer underwear
  • iPhone 5c: Its price: $100 less than the 5s. It's value: way less than that. Why not buy the 5s for the extra features and durability, for just $100 more?
  • Marc Jacobs or Chanel cosmetics: just go drugstore! The quality is often the same or similar.
  • A bunch of the same thing. Ex: five pairs of pink gloves. They're all exactly the same, why not just get one pair?
  • An ordinary sweater, that you buy because it's designer
Okay, now that we know what "a waste of money" looks like, let's rant about people who do this.
iPhone 5c Buyers: Um, dude, you know that you can buy a way better phone for just $100 more?
People, don't metaphorically throw your money out the window. Don't flush it down the toilet like a dead fish. Use your money on something you care about. Okay, maybe you DO care about designer underwear. You can either splurge on designer underwear that nobody will ever see (get your head out of the gutter, I know what you're thinking), or you can get something good, like a new computer.
Ordinary, designer clothes: My friend has this sweater that's designed by Free People. She told me how much she paid for it, and she said $45! It's just a regular sweater. She probably could've found something similar on Amazon for a quarter of the price!

Since this post was a little short, I'm going to make another post today, right after I finish post this one.

Today is:
363 days till Christmas (haha, I'm not sure if I'll really do this countdown starting now)
The 360th day of the year
4 days left in 2013
4 days until New Year's Eve
