Surely at least once in your life you bought some thing with the thought that it will definitely come in handy. With the same probability, this object is now gathering dust in the attic or mezzanine. Discounts in the store, recommendations from friends, fashion, prestige - all this beckons to buy things that you can do well without. We have prepared a shopping list that is a waste of money, effort and time.
1. Fashion accessories
New trends appear every year. In an attempt to keep up with modern trends, women of fashion accumulate a decent amount of earrings, bracelets and pendants. And after a couple of years, it seems that you no longer want to wear them, but it's a pity to throw them away. But behind such trifles impressive expenses are hidden. The best option is to sell accessories online or take them to a pawnshop. And with the money raised to buy jewelry, which even in decades will be considered an immortal classic.
2. Lots of clothes for a newborn
Baby clothes look cute. I just want to buy more bodysuits and socks. However, in reality, the baby will need literally several sets of clothes. The child is growing so fast that you won't even have time to try on all the outfits you bought in advance. Also, don't buy very expensive clothes. Budget kits may not be inferior in quality, and it will not be so sorry to say goodbye to them.
3. Set for home manicure
It seems that getting a manicure is a trifling matter. However, it is not for nothing that the masters are trained and regularly improve their qualifications, because any business has its own nuances. Yes, a nail file and tweezers should be in the arsenal of all women, but it is better to entrust the work with the rest of the tools to professionals. In addition, purchasing everything you need for a home manicure at a time is an expensive pleasure that is unlikely to pay off.
4. Electric toothbrush
Yes, such products are really more effective than conventional toothbrushes, but the price of them bites. The attachments need to be updated regularly, and in the absence of electricity, the brush becomes completely meaningless. The product is inconvenient to transport and it is not always possible to repair it, since an outdated model can be taken out of production.
5. Robot vacuum cleaner
A popular device that almost immediately after purchase declares its meaninglessness. The round, spinning vacuum cleaner only handles fine dirt on a flat surface. And corners and hard-to-reach places will have to be cleaned independently. In addition, the robot ignores large debris. So does it make sense to buy a vacuum cleaner for which you have to clean up?
Now it is fashionable to go in for sports and eat right, and freshly squeezed juice contains a lot of useful microelements. Many people buy squeeze devices to enjoy a glass of fresh juice every morning, but they do not take into account important nuances. To prepare a drink, you need a lot of fruits, which you will have to constantly buy. The juicer must be disassembled and washed after each use. And this takes more time than making fresh juice. As a result, the device actively pleases the owners for the first few weeks, and then goes to rest. At best, until summer, when the season for preserving homemade juices and tomatoes begins.
7. Shoes with high heels
Almost all women have a favorite pair of shoes in which to sit beautifully. But walking or standing is more difficult. It's not worth buying all the high-heeled shoes. We recommend purchasing versatile and comfortable black or beige pumps at the exit. In everyday life, give preference to pairs on a low stroke: sneakers, ballet flats, boots.
8. Exercise bike or treadmill
All sports begin on Monday, but something constantly prevents you from going to the gym. One option is to buy an exercise machine and run a home fitness marathon. But let's be honest: a treadmill or exercise bike will only take up a lot of space and will definitely not decorate the interior. And the likelihood that you will run or pedal to your favorite movie is almost zero. It is better to get a gym membership or group workout so that there is an incentive to go to classes.
9. Unnecessary dishes
In shops with decor and tableware, eyes run wide. I just want to buy up all these cute vases, dishes, sets, bowls, etc. But how often did you actually use the "ceremonial" dishes? Such products only litter the apartment, in anticipation of the very event that will never come. Try to purchase only those things that you will definitely use on a regular basis.
10. Wedding dress
What's a wedding without a beautiful and fluffy dress? However, as practice shows, the cost of the outfit turns out to be impressive, and you will wear it at most once. Then the dress will hang in the closet and take up free space. Of course, a wedding is an important day and you shouldn't give up the pleasure of going down the altar in a chic outfit. You just need to choose a dress within your means or one that can be worn at another event.
