A big part of the enticement of holiday shopping is getting "deals." Here at HuffPost Green, we think that the frenzy around Black Friday and holiday shopping encourages a lot of wasteful consumerism.

People buy things they don't necessarily need or want, sometimes in obscene quantities because they think they're getting a deal...without taking into account the fact that this just encourages the making of unnecessary consumer products that are cheap, won't last, and will eventually get dumped.

Check out these photos of wasteful deals from Black Friday and beyond, and tell us which one is the most ridiculous of them all.
