     Every product is good, its your situation that decides the suitability of product in your situation. One can save money by buying products on discount and features but its waste if the product doesn’t suit your situation.

    Do we ever buy face cream for shoes, Cough syrup for back pain? Your answer is obviously NO. While buying other products you always think of the use of product for you. In the same manner evaluate the use of product for your purpose / objective. In personal finance it has been observed that people buy products which doesnt fit or match for their situation. Here are some products category and their objectives

    Life Insurance Risk cover to protect family for every single day of their life after you, not as investment.
    Pension Plan To give Required Monthly Income After Retirement, not to fund wages of domestic help only.

    Home Loan Assist you in buying home, dont work for entire life to pay EMI for bank only
    Tax Saving Save Tax and make returns on investment, dont just burn money for Tax Saving
    Shares To make wealth by investing as promoter in business, not a magical tool
