We're all feeling the inflation pinch in our wallets. Remember when going out to eat was cheap enough, and now you can't even do that. This is a list of things that are almost not worth doing anymore.
- “Most fast food”
- “Footlong sweet onion teriyaki from Subway and normal drink was 14 dollars at Subway yesterday in Miami. I'm done with them forever.”
- “Airbnb. It’s now just as expensive as a hotel with several more downsides. You usually have to complete a list of chores before you leave and when you arrive someone walks through the property with you and goes through a list of rules so restrictive it shouldn’t be on the platform in the first place.”
- “Concerts! By the time all the extras and fees are applied they're out of reach.”
- “Streaming services, we're back at cable like again.”
- “Ordering delivery … used to be the same price as ordering in person with a small fee and tip per item.”
- “Fixing things, which I used to love doing. It's often much cheaper to just buy another one.”
- “Buying a new car. Even the crap entry level models with no options will run you near $30K. Who the h*ll is buying a $70K Ford F150?”
- “Junk food. $6 a bag for Oreos? Passsss”
- “Health insurance. Plans get worse every year. My wife was offered insurance through work and to just have a spouse the premium plus deductible was higher than her annual income. It was a complete joke.”
- “Controversial take, college. The return on investment, at least for me, just never seemed worth it even when I tried it 12 years ago.”
- “Lattes “Wanted to treat myself to a latte at my local coffee shop the other day. I could NOT BELIEVE an 8 ounce — EIGHT OZ — latte was $7.99. “
- “At this point? Food... I'm no criminal, but it's getting to the point where I often wonder ‘If I just walk out the store with a full grocery cart, is anyone really gonna stop me?’”
So what is no longer worth it for your hard earned cash?
