Does this site prove that consumerism is the new God?

I would check out this site most days to see if there are any deals that might actually interest me, but so much of it is really for stuff that people don't really need.

Especially with the endless stream of DVDs.

I will admit that getting a good deal on a new washing machine or TV or something for the kids, or even some food items is valuable, but so many things I just look at and think "who cares".

Now I know so many will say that things which don't interest me may interest someone else, but I got to thinking about why so many people would spend good money on things they don't really need (prime example DVDs) just to store them in a cupboard or beside their TV and maybe watch once in 5 years (or perhaps even never!!).

So much of society is about "having stuff" as if it will improve your life. And we wonder why we are killing the planet? Churning out stuff for the sake of it.

I'm starting to get all serious now, so I'll stop ranting.

I agree on the DVD front... It does get crazy, but don't forget some people may want that particular DVD.

Wheras others may look at a new washing machine or TV or something for the kids and think "who cares"

The thing is - HUKD is for everyone in the UK and one persons "who cares" will be another persons "wow utter bargain"
