A report from cheapism.com says most people don’t need:

  • a sandwich press, unless you run a panini shop
  • garlic, banana, melon and avocado cutters, a knife as worked fine for hundreds of years
  • a deep fryer, unless you own a food truck (a cast iron skillt takes up much less space)
  • a GPS unit for a car if you have a smartphone
  • a digital camera, unless you are a professional
  • cookbooks, only if you or your aunt want them as decorations

From the Doesn’t That Stink File, all the things people buy for babies that they really do not need:

  • baby crib decorations (don’t need and some items are unsafe)
  • baby wipe warmers, unless you live in an igloo, room temperature is fine
  • cute baby shoes (cheapism.com points out that babides don’t walk, and don’t need shoes)

Now, there is nothing wrong with these products. They all have a purpose and many people love them. But, for a lot of families, they might be a case of don’t waste your money.
