I’ve been sucked in by more than one gee-whiz gadget or appliance in my day. I tried to live the breadmaker lifestyle for years. There was a time when my panini-maker enjoyed regular workouts.

The truth is: We don’t need a large percentage of the products being hawked to us every day. Big companies are adept at convincing us that their products will improve our lives.
There are some indestructible products that are worth the price. But the products here are ones you can easily do without, either because you already own something that can serve the same purpose or because they are simply unnecessary to begin with.
