Thread: Things you don't cheap out on

  1. #1

    Things you don't cheap out on

    There are somethings I'm willing to cheap out on, my fiance hates that I buy a lot of my clothes at Old Navy, but there a some things I'm willing to spend the extra money on for high quality.

    For me that is beer and eyeglasses.

    I can talk about beer quality all night, but with glasses it's likely because I had no health coverage for eyeglasses and I simply couldn't afford to buy new one's. I had my first pair of glasses from 6th grade to my senior year of high school. They were beat up to hell, I wore them under my football helmet, I wore them to concerts with mosh pits. They had electric tape holding them together for a few years.

    Shoes and Mattresses. You probably spend 70% or more of your life in or on those things. Spend the extra dough to get something comfy.

    I use reading glazzes.

    I went and got my eyes checked, then ordered two pairs of transitional seamless bifocals for 400 bucks (on top of my paltry insurance).

    They suck.

    Still prefer my 5 dollar CVS reading specs.

    Never buy discounted condoms, or those found in the "seconds" bin.

    I do my due diligence for any out of the ordinary purchase. Less expensive does not always equate to "cheap" quality. For all other purchases I find the least expensive and then buy the second least expensive.
