Speaking of conspicous consumption

There is a new kit on the market. Yes, parents, for $30 (that's thirty dollars), you can have a kit that allows your child to create their own t-shirt.

I can't believe people would pay for that. I can get a very nice white tee from Target for 3 or 4 bucks. I can get a Sharpie for a dollar. If I want a color block on the shirt, I can get Rit dye for what, maybe 2 bucks? Total kit price: $7.50. Max. Including tax. 8 bucks if you include the gas to get to and from Target.
