Dragging men to shop is like pulling teeth, and even when they do venture out to the store, there are certain items that you won’t find them buying. Whether it’s because of their masculinity or lack of interest and necessity, these 13 items are off-limits for the average man as surveyed by men of Reddit.
1. Exotic Animals
One thing you won’t find men adding to their shopping list is an exotic pet. Lions, cheetahs, even hippos; the price tag and the extensive regulations are only part of the picture. As one perceptive observer pointed out, owning an exotic animal seems less about companionship and more akin to a vanity project, loudly proclaiming, “Look at me, I’m interesting.” Remember, wealth can’t buy wisdom. No level of luxury can justify turning these magnificent beasts into domestic trophies.
2. Herbal Life Supplements
Herbal Life Supplements and smoothies top the list of things men will never buy, regardless of how much money they have in the world. Someone explained that this MLM had infiltrated towns with smoothie shops that look legitimate businesses but were fronts for MLM pushers.
3. Extended Warranty
Several men insisted that no matter how much moolah they had in their pockets, they would never purchase an extended warranty. One clarified that this is especially true if you are rich. You can buy a new one instead of dealing with a satisfaction department.
4. A Person
Additionally, the men of Reddit refuse ever to buy another human being. They are terrified by the reality that it’s happening. One elaborated that it happens much more than we think about or acknowledge, and it’s terrible and wrong. One argued they would, but only to free them.
Several men on Reddit agreed that they would never pay for Reddit. Moreover, they wouldn’t pay for Reddit coins or gift gold to other Redditors. Ironically, the person who made this comment was gifted tons of gold.
6. Designer Handbags
Designer handbags worth thousands of dollars are something several men confessed they would never purchase. While many believed they were pointless, others suggested that a suitable bag or luggage holds resale value. The quality outlasts almost anything in their closets.
7. Celestial Property
Many men noted buying celestial property as “scammy” and something they would never spend their money on in a bazillion years, for example, buying property on the moon or having a star named for someone.
8. A Timeshare
Several Redditors admitted that they would never buy a timeshare despite being a massive bazillionaire. One clarified that you should purchase property instead.
Coming in it at number eight on this Reddit list is NFTs. Despite their explosive popularity, many men in this thread said they would never “invest” in NFTs. Someone explained that the profit in NFTs is in making them, not buying them.”
10. A Personalized Number Plate
One user explained that they had watched a TV show about billionaires in the UAE. They elaborated that one guy owned a vehicle worth $800k, and its number plate cost $9M! “My mind is blown to think of what $9M could buy, and this guy spends it on a piece of plastic! Pocket change to him, but still, wow.”
11. Enormous Houses
Several men confessed they wouldn’t buy excessive homes when they could get a few different homes in multiple locations, noting it’s “wasteful.” One suggested that any home with more than one extra bedroom and bathroom is excessive.
12. Designer Clothing
The idea of paying $300 for jeans that do the same thing as a $30 pair was absurd and unreasonable to many. Others admitted that work boots are the only thing they pay extra for, and it’s worth it.
13. Printing on Campus
Finally, a college student shared that they will never pay to print on campus. ” I already pay 36k a year in tuition. Why the heck should I pay to print?” However, they further explained they spent more money on a printer and ink at home than if he paid the printing charge.

Regardless, some Southerners still find the North a surprise. A recent discussion sheds some light on the matter, with people sharing their biggest surprises about their northern neighbors.
