Oh, and let's not forget all those new inexpensive clothes, that aren't as durable as the old ones I used to get for the price, but because they haven't increased in price (I just have to replace them more often) that somehow "saves" me money too. Then there is the furniture made of balsa wood, and other changes in product quality and durability that create...what was that old term again??? Oh yeah, "planned obsolescence" which keeps me buying the same things over and over as they wear out faster and faster...but they are cheap so that makes up for the waste of money.
Great! I'll just sit and play on my computer and forget I'm hungry until you tell me how else I am getting value to keep my spirits up, okay?
