When buying, I often choose the cheaper option. After all, does he really taste the difference in lettuce that costs twice as much? However, some items and services, even though they are considered expensive, are actually worth spending more money on. The added value is too much to miss.
Ah director User on Reddit LetsGetJigglyWiggly asked everyone to share these gems, and many agreed to reveal what and why they go deep into their wallets. It also highlights what buyers are looking for in various products, and what may be considered expensive to some may not be to others.
As Adam Savage once said, “Buy the cheapest tool you can find first, and if you break it, it means you’ve used it many times, and you’ve got the best tool at an affordable price. You can buy
Literally where rubber meets road. If you think good tires are too expensive, stop kidding. You and your loved ones deserve more than that.
The little bastard was able to get f****n scabies the same month his heartworm expired. Unexpected he was $300.
But I had a bad PTSD episode coming out of a nightmare and his 70lb a*s crawled over me and sniffed my face until I was present. Best $80 I’ve ever spent, a lifetime haven.
Well, I didn’t expect anyone to see this, haha. Thank you to whoever gilded me.On request here is his handsomeness
Lego over all knockoff brands. Sure it’s more expensive, but at least you can be confident that all the bricks will stick together and will continue to do so for another 25+ years.
Extra long phone charger. No more bending over the side of your bed to send the last few texts because the cord is too short
rumba. Imagine literally never vacuuming again. I haven’t been in two years. If it breaks tomorrow, I will pay $400 again.
Kitchen knife. Get a nice chef’s knife and keep it sharp and cooking will be a thousand times more enjoyable. Plus, a quality knife will last a lifetime.
Work shoes. I’m a chef and I stand all day. Every year I buy new clogs for $150-200. I bought cheap shoes when it was green and could barely walk at the end of my shift.
It’s not a product, but I keep myself sane by having the occasional housecleaner come in.
socks and underwear. If your feet and balls are uncomfortable, there’s nothing else you can do.
Good shoes/boots are definitely number two on this list as well.
my apartment. Basically, you have to move in with a roommate to save a few hundred bucks a month. But damn, I love having my own space.
Frying pans… cast iron, ceramic, stainless (preferably with removable handles), and one very large wok… plain metal, not non-stick. If your skillet is properly seasoned, uses the right amount of cooking oil and the right amount of heat, you don’t need nonstick Teflon junk that will flake off your food over time.
whatever I buy for my brother. My parents are kinda… let them out and don’t buy a lot of new clothes and shoes and don’t help with the layout of the rooms, in one room he has 4 teenagers and has bedbugs. So, after the bed bugs were removed (which took months), I spent $300 building a quad bed to keep them on the ground if more bugs appeared. I just bought a desk for my room. I don’t think this is really a product, but I often feel that spending money on other people is far more justified than spending it on yourself.
Face moisturizer and SPF. I live in Buffalo and our winters can be very cold and long. It can be so cold that your hands crack and bleed. Healthy skin is very important.
humidifying air purifier
My toddler son was coughing all the time. The pediatrician said his respiratory system was “hypersensitive,” which could lead to asthma.
I read online that a humidifier and an air purifier can help.
The problem with the cheaper ones ($50-$100) is that the design is prone to mold and bacteria, which can make things worse. So I went all out and got the best one on the market ($600), which is both a humidifier and an air purifier. Lots of beads and filters.
He sleeps much better now!
A good shampoo and conditioner, sulfate and parabine free. I have used cheap c**p most of my life and it made my hair really thin and brittle. Then I learned how bad it was for your hair and started buying better quality hair products.
Gynecomastia (male breasts) surgery. It changed my life. It made me want to exercise. It made me want to improve my appearance. It stopped my depression and was worth 7k.
take care of your car Regular service by excellent mechanics. My first car was great, I treated it badly and within 5 years it was in terrible condition, my new car is 4 years old from him and I’m taking it to a great mechanic. Paying $300 for full service oil changes, adjustments, brake work, etc. is well worth it in the long run.
sheets/pillows. You don’t need 600 thread count. But around 400 thread count is perfect. And bought 2 sets. Wash it once a week and replace it to make it last longer. A good mattress cover is also a good idea.
But don’t sell your pillows too cheap. Buy one that suits your sleeping style, whether you’re on your side, prone, or on your back.
Someone has already mentioned mattresses. Also worth the money.
Edit: Bed Bath and Beyond is your friend. Personally he’s one of my favorite stores (at least after Linen and Things went bankrupt). However, I wouldn’t recommend it for mattresses (it might be good, but I just don’t have personal experience with it.)
