Cosmetics, sports goods, toiletries, medication? Expensive medication is somewhat understandable because of the need to recover research costs and make a profit, but what about the others?

Trash bags and toilet paper. Spending good money simply to throw it away...

Convenience products.. things that are supposed to make tasks easier. Why waste the money when you can just put in a bit of effort to get something done? Seems silly.

Couldn't agree more! All those liquid washing products for clothes are a great way for manufacturers to just use water to bulk up their products, and washing balls and tablets are another gimmick.

I think cosmetics are probably the most expensive. That and a fancy coffee.

I would always say anything dealing with make up. Some of those woman look a hot mess and don't realize it. Beauty should be natural in it's original state. not masked up in different shades of pink. yuck..

Anything you buy is kind of wasteful. There is really no reason why you can't make products cheaper by taking away the fancy looking plastic wrappings.
