5 Things I'll NEVER Buy (Maybe)

Ever scroll through your Instagram or Facebook feed & see an ad or something that someone bought & think to yourself, "That's probably the silliest thing ever"? I know I have. I mean there are just some things in the world that should NOT be bought unless you're a billionaire. Who really "needs" it anyways?

5_Things_I'll_Never_Buy

Nonetheless, here are some things I'll NEVER buy (maybe).

1. Designer handbags worth more than my car

Or basically any designer handbag not found at T.J. Maxx or any of the like. Unless it's a gift-- then I'll take it.

2. Hunter rain boots

Since when have rain boots been so cool to wear? I hate wearing rain boots anyways. They just look good in an Instagram pic. I'll stick with my Target ones.

3. Cable TV

This one was a touchy subject between Andrew & I when we first got married, but now I'll admit that he was right. We don't need cable. No one needs cable. Netflix or Hulu are the way to go. We pay $8 a month for Netflix compared to if we were paying for cable, at LEAST an extra $30 a month (& that's probably just for the first year or a few months).

4. Makeup not found at Target or CVS.

Why does someone pay $25 for mascara? I'm convinced it's just because it has a fancy brandname label on it. My $6 Maybelline mascara does the job perfectly for me.

5. Expensive sunglasses

Sure Ray-Ban's look cool, but most likely they'll get broken after a while. I'd much rather buy a ton of cute, $10 sunglasses (& have a variety) that will last me a while until I throw them in my purse one day & they get scratched. I bet I can look just as cute in those sunglasses.

  1. I have taken to wearing expensive sunglasses over the years. Yes they look good,but they also provide great protection from all uv rays and polarization really does help you see better, especially around water .

    1. Yeah, I understand getting expensive sunglasses for eye protection. But I've found a lot of off brand ones that have similar protection as well! Andrew has a pair of Oakley sunglasses that he likes a lot. I'm just not that girl I guess! haha

  2. I have to agree with you on the hunter boots! I don't get the fad either. However, I may be guilty kon everything else you've mentioned! Haha BUT I do wait for the Kate Spades sales before I purcahse, so that makes it a little bit better ;)

    1. If I found a Kate Spade purse under $50 I'd jump right on it! A lot of times I've seen them at T.J. Maxx for pretty cheap, but other than that, I can't bring myself to go buy one at a department store! Haha

  3. Hahah guilty for all of these but the first one, but I do have to say my Hunter Boots are a godsend when my campus seems to like to flood every time it rains. Or snows. Or drizzles. Ha!

  5. Hi there - you came up on my Bloggers Helping Bloggers feed in Google+.
    1. Expensive handbags - the uber $$$ ones are not worth it, but I have found that Coach bags, while more than the usual, last longer and look better than the cheaper ones.
    2. If you are going to go rubber boats - gotta go Wellies.
    3. I miss it - we pulled the plug on it a couple of years ago. Now we just Netflix and chill ...
    4. Cheap mascara - ok but face lotion gotta go Clinique or Orgins.
    5. Gotta disagree with you again, I will spend the extra bucks on glasses and sunglasses but I'm putting RX lenses in them anyway.
    What I won't buy - high end retail clothing, talk about a 200% markup!
    Thanks for "listening" to my two cents worth.
