Things We’d Rather Rent Than Own

What’s something you’d rather rent than own?  A poll asked 2,000 people, and a house or apartment only ranked 12th.  So most of us would still rather own our home.  Here are the top ten things we DON’T want to own . . .

1.  Movies.  We used to buy DVDs, but now we just stream.

2.  Music.  No one wants CDs now that we have Spotify.

3.  Gym equipment.  Like renting a Peloton bike instead of buying one.

4.  Cars.  A lot of people prefer leasing instead of buying, or just using Uber.

5.  Storage spaces.  Renting is cheaper upfront than putting a shed in your yard.

6.  Phones.  Like paying a monthly fee for the newest phone instead of buying it.  And then you upgrade whenever you want.

7.  Tools.  If you rent at a place like Home Depot, you don’t have to store them.

8.  Wedding dresses.  You can rent designer gowns now for a few hundred bucks.

9.  Sports equipment.  Like renting skis if you only go skiing once or twice a year.

10.  Cleaning equipment.  Like renting a rug cleaner at the grocery store.  (SWNS
