But do you love it?

We live in a consumer-driven society. We love to spend. And it’s easy to find a certain joy in life’s material pleasures, both small and large.

While some of us are lucky enough to buy only what we need (or truly want and can use) without taking all the bells and whistles into account, who isn’t guilty of the occasional impulse buy?

When it comes down to it, some products are better than others, regardless of brand name and smart advertising. As it turns out, some items are just plain rip-offs.
