Overpriced


For some reason, prices continue to rise and rise, which has led to many products becoming overpriced.  I find this rather ridiculous, especially as wages don’t seem to be increasing.

As the price of designer clothing and accessories increases, the prices on the high street also continue to increase at an annoying rate.  Although the quality of products has improved and particular stores have brought out high range lines, I feel that the high street has become overpriced and that bothers me.

However, the quality of some of the products sold on the high street and by high-end designers are not good enough for the prices that they are being sold at.  Yet people continue to buy these products and buy into the hype of the trends, which enables these companies to keep their high prices.

There are a number of other products that are sold at high prices, such as healthy foods, which can make it difficult for individuals to lead a healthy lifestyle.  I don’t understand how our nation can be trying to decrease obesity and champion healthy living, yet the price of healthy living is far too high for many individuals.

It bothers me that so many products are overpriced and I know that prices are not going to fall, which means that situations will not get any easier.  It just gives this world another reason to be all about getting money, but that is another issue for another day.

  1. I’m not sure what country you are writing from but in the US, when the gasoline/oil prices started rising, the cost of food started rising as well as most other products. When the gasoline prices went back down, the food and other products prices didn’t go down, and when the gasoline/oil prices began to rise again, the food and other products prices began to rise again. Because the trend is for healthier living, those types of foods increased even more. One word. Greed.
