31. I hate replacing things I already have, instead getting something I don't have yet.
Couldn't agree with you more! And it IS a tremendous waste, junking things after a short time - both for the planet, and for us financially. It's such a rip off! It's as if there's a conspiracy to make sure we never get anything of any actual value.

Of course if companies cared about what consumers want, it would be different. The idea that the "market" responds to that is a joke. I wish some company would try it - that would give the others something to think about.

Overall sales would be the same, it's that they want to sell us the same few products over and over again.
