1. The Bra Strap Clip

You can get the same result by clipping a safety pin around your straps, which is what I’ve been using for years.

2. The Snuggie


C’ mon people! You have a blanket and a bathrobe. Do you really need a hybrid of the two?

3. Shoes That Get You in Shape

Any “quick and easy” fix to get in shape is too good to be true. Instead of spending $100 + on a pair of these, use your regular tennis shoes and play soccer with your friends or go for a run!

4. The Kindle

Technology is great, but there is something special about holding a real book.  With your stories in a Kindle, you can’t underline your favorite lines, trade with friends, or keep an actual library. Plus at $259, is it really worth it?

5. The Cookie Diet


As I said before, if it sounds too good to be true, it is. Losing 10 pounds in a week by eating only cookies may seem great, but you can’t live on those expensive diet cookies forever.  ($60 a week?! That’s a pair of cute shoes!) Sorry to break it to you, but the only way to lose weight and keep it off forever is to make a lifestyle change.  No “magic” $60 cookies needed.   🙂

  2. lol… agree on the bra strap clip and those shoes are ugly… better to buy some cute shoes and go for a run than walk around in those ugly things. I have to admit though… I’ve always wanted a snuggie… in leopard print… lol
