Things You Shouldn’t Buy Because They Are Stupid or Useless

Let’s be honest, we’ve all done this. We’ve all spent money on something we immediately regret because we know we’ll be bored with it 5 minutes later.

Well, I’ve come up with a list of things that go above and beyond any usual dumb purchase. These I classify as SUPER dumb buys. The equivalent of throwing money directly into your garburator. Please, I beg of you, do not buy any of these things:

Remote control helicopter (when you’re a grown man and don’t have a kid)

Yes, my BF did just buy one of these, and yes, so did his friend. They plan on flying them at the park together. Guaranteed they will fly them once, then it will collect dust in our storage space for the next 10 years.

The Useless Machine

As you can see in this video, it does absolutely nothing. On top of that it costs about $50 to buy and you have to spend a few hours to put it together. The same friend of my BF’s who bought a remote-control helicopter also bought this machine. Needless to see, he’s an impulsive shopper.

Reusable coffee sleeve

I was at Tim Horton’s the other day and saw that they were selling reusable coffee sleeves for their paper coffee cups. Who the hell at headquarters said “Yeah, that’s a good idea!”? Do you expect people to carry their reusable coffee sleeve in their purse or jeans pocket? Just get a f***ing reusable coffee mug!

Subway chin rest

I’m not joking, this is a real thing. In Japan anyways.

Paper weights

Since when you needed to spend upwards of $10 for a fancy paper weight when a free rock from outside or a coaster will do just fine. Moreover, when do you ever have papers flying away because there’s a draft in your house? Close the f***ing window!

Phone handset for your iPhone

I don’t care how hipster you are, plugging a phone into your phone is just plain dumb.

Ok, this list can go on just based on the ridiculous apartment stuff Urban Outfitters sells but I’m going to stop here since I think you get the idea. Remember, you work hard for your money so make sure you spend it on something worth that time and energy!
