ThisIsWhyImBroke is a free online magazine run by a bunch of geeks who partake in way too much online window shopping.
Our philosophy is simple: we only want to display the coolest stuff you can find and buy on the web. We are not interested in spamming any boring or lame products at you – when you visit ThisIsWhyImBroke you’ll only see interesting, innovative, and often times very odd products.
Many items listed on this site do return a small commission for product referral, however this is not the sole motivation for featuring an item. Our staff regularly lists products that we receive absolutely no compensation for. We do not carry any of the products listed on the site, nor do we directly sell anything.
To eliminate the dreaded “buyer’s remorse” by recommending the right product for any lifestyle and budget. We do that by evaluating product reviews to be sure only those that are authentic and trustworthy are factored into our final recommendations.
ConsumerSearch was founded in 1999 with the sole mission of cutting through much of the hype and hyperbole that surrounded the then-new world of internet retail sales. We found that by personally examining all available reviews, and winnowing out the information that was obviously biased or self-serving, we could find the products that truly do what they say they will do. This enables us to recommend the top products in a range of categories for a variety of budgets and lifestyles, thus saving time, money and disappointment for millions of consumers
The editors and writers at ConsumerSearch thoroughly research every single product category they are responsible for. Research includes online sources, searching journal and magazine databases, and personally examining thousands of owner reviews to include only the most relevant. We do not accept donations or free products from manufacturers, which makes us entirely impartial and unbiased.
All of our reports include a detailed analysis of each of our recommendations. The top products we dub the “Best Reviewed.” However, we understand that one product does not work for everyone, so we offer alternatives. These runners up may be less expensive, or an alternate size, or fit a different specific need, but we try to cover all the bases for any lifestyle.
