“From My Reader” is a weekly series, highlighting one of over 30 blogs that I track using Google Reader.
Go on, admit it – you buy crap, don’t you? Stuff that you look at a month later and go “why did I put that thing on my credit card to wrack up interest and ruin my life?” Or maybe you’re super awesome and you never make a purchase you regret. We have a name for people like that: “In Denial.”
Cap of StopBuyingCrap.com implores you to… well… stop! Buying crap, that is. And if you’re not sure what constitutes “crap,” he’ll be happy to point it out for you in his “Totally Crap” section, which includes a Fish Tank Toilet and a DVD Rewinder. Actually, those are the only two items there – Cap, find us some more things that are “Totally Crap,” won’t you?
I personally enjoy Cap’s “Woops, Bought Crap” entries, where he admits to not heeding his own advice all the time. It’s ok, Cap, I would have bought that sweet monitor, too.
Cap also has a robust section dedicated to personal finance advice, which is fun to read as well, because it’s written with Cap’s signature sense of humor.
If pressured to make a criticism of the site, I would have to say that Cap just doesn’t update enough. Please, Cap, find more crap for me, and brighten my day a little more?
