After noticing my spending habits on car care products, and those of other similarly minded people - I'm convinced that those already crowded shelves at Autozone still have room enough for me to invent products and get filthy rich. That's one of the few areas in life that you actually do shop on price, the higher the price the better you assume the product is. No one buys the Turtle Wax paste in a green plastic can for $4! Thank god it's pretty much the only place I throw caution into the wind!
