“Ready-made” packages…
Salads that have already been cut, packed σνιτσελάκια/ burgers/ nuggets etc., slice in a plastic box, packages of cheese and ham on toast and so on, they cost the double of the corresponding products you can buy from the section with the cheeses/ meats/ vegetables/ cold meats etc in the supermarket. And what you get away with it? The five minutes that you’ll bite off the salad, or the detritus toast that will you reach with the schnitzel.
A million different cleaners
With the exception of minimum materials, such as wood, the surfaces of your home you don’t need to each own a different detergent, sponge and cloth to be cleaned. Good old soap is fine for almost everything.
Coffee from the outside
2 euros per day, so 10 euro a week if you don’t count the Weekends, 14 million if you count, that is at least 40 euros per month. Save the, with classic and beloved large coffee from home –or better yet, investing in a coffee maker, for better quality coffee.
Disposable razors
With almost 7€ per package, for ergonomic handles and cute colors, and other nice but useless “advantages”. Buy a classic razor or shaver, in which you simply change the blades, saving about a third of the money. And, ladies: The most economical packaging says “for men” doesn’t mean anything –the blades are exactly the same, the price is the only thing that changes.
Energy drinks
If the traditional coffee is not enough to wake you up, then I guess there’s something wrong with the course or the quality of your sleep –or, alternatively, something goes very wrong with the marketing of energy drinks, which have you convinced that you need them.
Expensive toiletries
Anti-wrinkle creams, αντικυτταριτιδικές lotions, magic potions that will make you look younger/ prettier/ more shinies/ smarter/ more anything. Do you know what makes the same job? A combination of good sleep, good sex, and people in your life that make you laugh.
Brands
Let’s just say that there are in front of your two cell phones. We don’t want to be accused of libel, so names do not say, but let’s say that the a makes 300€ and the other is 900€. If you bother to look at in detail the technical specifications, you will find that the price difference is the cost of the marketing department of the exact company, who works overtime and must somehow be paid.
