Buying leisure goods in the UK
A recent report by a market research company implies that a high percentage of British consumers have wasted an amazing eighty billion pounds a year on leisure goods that never, or hardly ever, get used because they are stored away due to lack of time, or simply forgotton about.
Though purchased with every intention to use them, many people simply lose the inclination and are merely satisfied with the idea of having them and holding on to them in case they want to use them in the future when they have more time on their hands. Think of tummy toners, rowing machines, mini-trampolines, multi-gyms, and a whole range of gadgets and toys that hardly ever get used and youíll know what I mean. Most of us have been guilty of this at some time in our lives.
But that doesnít mean that all leisure goods are a waste of money. If youíre passionate about something like photography or golf, or even keeping fit, you can still get a lot of pleasure from the things you buy if used regularly, maybe even for years to come. Before splashing out your hard earned cash though, ask yourself if you really need that latest gadget, or new set of golf clubs if your old ones are fine. And if you do, then compare prices online and save yourself some money!
