We are easily fooled

Would you pay $500 for a pair of $20 sneakers? 'Of course not!' you would probably say. But as it turns out a lot of 'smart' people are easily tricked into paying a lot of money for something that's actually only worth a little. Not you of course. You and Iwould never fall for a simple marketing trick. Right? That's why all the things we own are a strict necessity we can't live without. Like that breadmaker we bought five years ago and used twice. Or that lovely dress that's waiting in your wardrobe for you to lose a bit more weight.

Apparently 'luxury' and 'high quality' only exist in the eyes of the beholder and are nothing more than marketing instruments. Think about that when considering your next purchase.
