New products seem to be popping up all the time, especially the famous (or infamous) household gadgets. How many ads have you seen for items that promise increased efficiency either on TV or online? They’re everywhere!
Here’s the thing, though. Most of the time, the people behind these inventions are kind of trying to reinvent the wheel, so to speak. Is this necessary? No! Does it make them a ton of money? Absolutely.
So, to save you YOUR money and space around the house, we’ve rounded up some items that are no only useless, but they’re a complete waste of money to boot!
