You remember when having leg room on a plane was not just reserved for those in first class? Or how about buying software and not having to renew the right to use it? Back in the 90’s these things use to be normal and relatively inexpensive. Listed below are the top ten things we pay extra for now that we use to not have to.

1.  “New furniture made out of real wood.”  Although, you might have to go back longer than 30 years for that.

2.  “Owning the software you purchased.”

3.  “Concert tickets.”  Technology has made a lot of things better and more accessible.  But its effect on concert tickets is definitely not one of them.

4.  “Single-income families buying a home.”

5.  “Good-quality fabric in clothing” . . . and similarly, “Household products that don’t break within the first few years of use.”

6.  “Legroom on an airplane” . . . and “meals on domestic flights.”

7.  “Affordable healthcare.”  Again, you might have to go back further for that.

8.  “Privacy” . . . like “being able to let loose and have a good time without the risk of it being recorded and popping up on social media.”

9.  “Calling a company and getting a PERSON on the other end of the phone.”

10.  “Boredom.  There’s always something to take your attention nowadays.”
