What item do you overpay for? Why?

A list of the top overpriced products came out today. On the list, brand name fashions, printer ink, bottled water, college textbooks, greeting cards and movie theater popcorn! Why are we willing to pay so much for these things?! What item do you overpay for? Why?

I am a financially changed person thanks to Dave Ramsey's guidance. Yes, please feel free to call me a cheapskate. I don't intentionally overpay for anything. Watch the sales, buy used, recycle, have swap parties with friends. And drink tap water - it's better for the environment anyway!

We try to buy more all natural and organic that are so much better for you than the other stuff.
(Our local Krogers have a decent selection of such.)
Normally, the prices are higher than the traditional brands but it is so well worth it.
(The difference in price would be something like if the regular brands cost like $99-$2 or $3, the all natural or organic brands would cost like $3-$6. But it so well worth it! (And it's still yummy!)

I will not go cheap on haircare products. I use top of the line because I have curly hair and they really keep it in line!
