10 Things You Should Never Buy

10 Things You Should Never Buy

Super nifty article! Here are a few of the suggestions that I wholeheartedly agree with:

“Disposable Plates/Utensils/Cups
Bite the bullet and buy actual plates, utensils, and cups. Not only will this save you money in the long run, but it will also keep extra trash out of the landfills.

Paper Towels
Instead of spending money on paper towels each month, buy a bunch of rags and dishtowels instead. Rags are washable so they can be used again and again. Paper towels have a one-time use. Again, this will save you money in the long run and keep unnecessary trash out of the landfill.

Food Delivery
Food delivery services take advantage of people looking for convenience. Instead of having food delivered to your door, save an extra couple bucks and pick it up at the restaurant. Or better yet, just make your food yourself.

Precut Fruits and Veggies
Cut your own fruits and veggies. Precut fruits and veggies cost more than whole fruits and veggies. Don’t let laziness cost you money.

Lottery Tickets
I admit, playing the lottery is fun. The idea of winning millions of dollars is appealing to anyone. But let’s face it, your chances of winning are one in at least 18 million. Keep that dollar in your wallet; don’t spend it on a lottery ticket.”

It’s a very green list *and* it can help save money. What’s not to love? Are there any on the list you disagree with, though? Personally, laziness triumphs for me in regards to car washes…and I LOVE my digital camera…
