How much will you pay for a toothbrush?
We paid $1.84 for a toothbrush last night, and then it hit me. How crazy is this? We pay $4 for a coffee at Starbucks (which rots our teeth) and it lasts 15min. We pay $25 for a dinner at a restuarant.
The toothbrush lasts for…what…3-4 months? It saves you literally thousands in medical bills and we pay $1.84 for it. My point is that you would probably pay $10 for a toothbrush if they asked that much. $10 every 4 months to protect your dental history. Brushing your teeth also gets a kiss from your spouse!
But, we don’t see it that way. We look at a piece of plastic with brissles and say, “What a rip off! I can’t believe they are charging $1.84 for something that probably cost .12 to make!”
Moral of the story? Be grateful that you have teeth, you live in a country where you can buy new toothbrushes and they don’t cost $10. On the other hand, wake up to all the overpriced stuff you buy without a second glance.
ps. shouldn’t they be called teethbrushes?
