We’ve all had that moment. It’s when you stop and think to yourself, “Why on Earth does this cost so much? It really shouldn’t. There has to be a way to find this in a cheaper form.” The thing is, usually there is a cheaper version. It’s just that the easiest to find, within-arms-length product is typically more expensive.
So what sort of things are we going to be talking about? Well, there’s the obvious ones, like weddings. We know that every guy in the world is sitting there scratching his head and wondering how in the world one day could cost so much. Then there are more specific things like domestic flights in Canada. It’s strange how it can be cheaper to fly from Vancouver to London than it is to fly from Vancouver to Toronto. And then there are things that we’re just joking about. Like dating. Well, we know that some of you aren’t joking about it. But hey, not everyone’s dates are crazy expensive. We’re just going to leave that up to you and your significant other.

Just make your own. You can get a cheap dehydrator for about 30 bucks.
In the UK, you go broke riding trains; in America, you go broke fixing your broken car.
They’re money pits.
Note: This is tongue-in-cheek; we already know that babies are priceless.
The reason these are so expensive is partly because Iran used to produce most of them (until the embargo). California produces the rest, but droughts are never good for nut crops.
