10 things that aren't worth the money

In these tight economic times, I'd like to offer my top 10 things you shouldn't bother buying:

1. Degree Antiperspirant - I got one free with CVS ECBs, and started using it last week. Two days later, I have no SKIN under my arms. Don't buy this one, and don't take it even if it's FREE!

2. Burt's Bees Very Volumizing Shampoo - This shampoo dries out my hair like super cheap shampoo except that it comes with a fat price tag. I need 1/2 cup of conditioner just to pull a comb through my hair.

3. Sam's/WalMart brand salsa - One word: EWWWWW.

4. Aldi's brand pizza crust - The texture was stale; the taste was foul. We threw it in the trash and ordered in from Paisano's.

5. Method organic daily shower cleaner - Maybe it does work (I can't tell), but the smell is horrific.

6. Sam's/WalMart brand alfredo sauce - Tastes like water/flour paste, not alfredo-y at all.

7. Charter "bundle" for telephone, internet, and cable services - Our alarm went off at least once/month while we had the bundle. In addition, I went through 3 (!!) telephone modems in one year. I went back to Bell in August, and my telephone has worked every day since. AND my alarm hasn't gone off once!

8. Viva paper towels - The texture of these towels is just weird. They are very soft, almost like a super-thick baby wipe. The thickness is adequate for spills, but they are quite lint-y so you wouldn't want to use them for cleaning.

9. Crest Pro-Health toothpaste in cinnamon - Imagine an atomic fireball candy without sugar. Two uses caused major irritation on my gums, and the roof of my mouth peeled!

10. Wish Bone Lite Ranch dressing - Yuck. I HATE the funky "lite" aftertaste. Their regular Ranch is just fine though.
