Six Things That Cost Way More Than They’re Worth

If you’re trying to save some money, here are some things that might help. It’s six things that cost WAY more than they should:

#1.) Coffee at a Coffee Shop. A $4 Venti at Starbucks costs about 25 cents to make at home.

#2.) Wine at a Restaurant. On average, they charge three times what it costs at the store. And it’s basically the same with beer and liquor.

#3.) Hotel Minibars. The food and drinks cost four times what you’d pay in a store.
And ordering a movie at a hotel costs twice as much as renting one at a video store. (Or more, depending on how much SKIN you’re trying to see.)

#4.) Movie Theater Popcorn. An average bag costs 12 times more than it costs to make.

#5.) Bottled Water. It’s marked up by about 4,000 percent. That’s why you should spend ten to twenty dollars and buy a reusable bottle with a built-in filter. The new ones filter regular tap water WHILE you drink it.

#6.) Text Messages. Sending a single text only costs your phone company about ONE-THIRD of a cent. But some providers charge up to 20 cents per text if you go over your limit. That’s a 6,000 percent mark-up. So if you ALWAYS go over your limit, you should think about paying a little more per month and getting an unlimited plan.
