Do you really get what you pay for? Are some things just worth it to pay more for? We’re beyond excited to welcome the one and only Paula Pant back to the roundtable. She’s joined by Len Penzo of the award-winning blog lenpenzo.com and our very own high roller, OG, to carry on the year-long competition by guessing which items are on a top 20 list of things that aren’t worth the money.
