You work hard for your money (or have suffered the humiliation of kissing butt to inherit vast wealth) and want to stretch your dollars (or whatever monetary denomination is used in your country).
So Blogs News Reviews usually looks for value.
Perhaps you will remember my posts on very cheap French pocket knives or inexpensive products that reduce campsite bathroom embarrassment, disease spread, and sleeping bag discoloration?
Of course, when a product is all about status, I will share info on expensive luxury products. After all, sometimes you want to show off and a nice watch is a great investment.
But this post is about some incredibly expensive products.
Take a look at the pricetags on these products and ask yourself: Am I crazy or just missing out on the good life?
Horse Skeleton List Price: $18,679.00
Holy crap. My dad once paid $150 for a good workhorse for logging. We had no idea our hardworking horse was carrying around $18 grand in bones. If you need a horse skeleton, don’t let me discourage you. But gee whiz. If I had an $18K horse skeleton I don’t think I would park it outside near a forest. Wolves could rush out and grab an expensive bone to gnaw on.
Mixer and Accesories Price:$2,189.88
Do you need a mixer? This would be a good one, I’ll bet. “Look, I saved money by making homemade cookies.” Just a few more batches to break even. Dang.
The moniker “Happy Sport” makes me wonder if we are talking about the person who pays for this timepiece or a related physical activity. If you are engaging in a sport with 50 grand on your wrist, no doubt that’s pretty happy. Holy Mackerel.
Sports Oriented Pet Bed Price: $979.97
Is your dog or cat a sports fan? Or, like ours, is your dog so dumb he couldn’t tell the difference between a home run and a square dance?
Either way, this pet bed is not about your pet’s perceptions. This purchase is about YOU. Your desire for a premium sports-themed pet bed. And your concept of money management. Wow. You may have a future in government spending.
So there you go, a few items with prices that might make you ask, “Are you kidding?”
