Garbage!

Rachael Ray charges $30 for this "Garbage Bowl"...

Do people actually buy these???






I can't decide which one I hate more! If you think this PLASTIC BOWL is worth $30, you are ridiculously gullible the ideal consumer.

Look:



I have a bowl that I use to hold discarded food...yet mine is from the Dollar Store! And guess what? My bowl does the exact same thing and I think it looks 10 times better than Rachael Ray's!

It just makes me sad that people are so easily deceived by commercials and gimmicks.

I'm sorry if I offended anyone who actually bought one of these garbage bowls. Please feel free to leave a comment, listing its redeeming qualities ~ if it has any ;)

Have you ever been suckered into buying a gizmo that you later realized you didn't even need?

I 100% agree. I'm sometimes guilty of a silly indulgence that I later look back and deem wasteful, but geez! $30 for an ugly platic bowl! Our world is already so polluted with plastic already and furthermore the $29 savings is better served helping people in need. It could feed a family in Guatemala where I live for a whole month!

Hi Natalie! Thank you for stopping by my blog the other day!!

And girl, I couldn't be with you anymore. Those garbage bowls ARE GARBAGE! So ridiculous!

Those are hideous. How about recycling a grocery sack??

Jesse said...

Yep, I don't know why anyone would buy one of those either.

Nikki said...

Yeah, I just use a regular bowl too.

Mmmm....wouldn't buy one of these garbage bowls. First of all they are too pricey for something made out of garbage...not very attractive either! I think a great thing to do is to find unique bowls in second hand stores or flea markets...that is a great way to re-use items.

Please stop by my blog, I am doing my first giveaway, the Elle Decor, So Chic book.

$30 for a bowl?! No thank you! I like yours much better!

Haha I love your honesty here! Yes, so true! Way to go on your dollar store find! I'm all about the thrifty buy...not the trendy one. Plus, you're right. They're ugly. Silly how we want to lean toward buying something just because it has a certain name on it.
