Because I love Top 10 lists and saving money, I present to you CNNmoney’s top rip-off’s families should avoid.
Time.com quoting CNNmoney research: Here is the list of the top rip-offs (Because I don’t want to rip-off (heehee) their whole list, click on the link to see the cost-saving alternatives):
I’m not surprised they listed Hotel minibars and movies as big rip-offs but I am surprised that anyone is using them. My parents are all about their super gasoline — I can’t imagine their cars, while nice, are high-performing enough that they need it.
I am torn on the used textbooks. I would need to examine them in person to know how “used” they were. I also would want to know what grade the person got who used the books so I would know if I should follow their highlighting or not.
So what do you think? Are you getting ripped off by any of these items? What other rip-offs do you see?
