There are some items you can get away with buying the generic or the least expensive, but it doesn’t always work. There are times when it simply isn’t worth sacrificing good quality to save a buck. Although you’d like to save money, there are some items that you’ll end up buying again or just getting frustrated with when you don’t splurge for better quality. The simple truth is there are some items that are not only worth the money, but will make your life easier. Let’s take a closer look at some items worth the extra splurge of money.
High Quality Mattresses
We spend most of our lives in bed. Wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy that time? If you purchase a cheap mattress, you’ll probably spend most of that time trying to get comfortable. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra money to get a good quality mattress.
If you’re not in bed, chances are you’re on your sofa, right? If you and your family spend a lot of time in the living room, splurge your money on a comfortable sofa. Choose a style and fabric that can stand the test of time so your sofa will last you for years to come.
Bedding and Towels
As mentioned above, you a spend a lot of time in bed. Spend the money to get good quality, high thread count sheets and comfortable blankets. This is worth every single dollar you spend. Best of all, the bedding will last longer. You also want to spend money on good towels. Cheap towels unravel in the wash very quickly and do a terrible job at getting you dry after a bath or shower. Spend the money for better quality towels. Again, these will last much longer than the cheap version.
Let me be clear…I’m not talking about the latest pair of heels here. I’m talking about a good pair of shoes that provides you with the arch support you need when you’re standing or walking a lot. Shoes that don’t have the right fit for your foot can cause problems with your knees, your back and effect the health of your spine.
It’s important to take care of your teeth. Money spent on a good electric toothbrush now can save you a lot of money down the road when it comes to dental care.
Stay away from fast food and overly processed foods and instead opt to splurge on food that is nourishing and healthy to the body. While cheap food may save you money now, it won’t in the long term due to the negative effects on your health.
Whether you have health insurance or not, you never want to base your healthcare on cost. Find a good doctor or specialist that has good recommendations from friends and family or has good online reviews. This doesn’t mean you can’t compare prices. You just want to compare prices after you know which doctors and specialists are well respected in their field.
Last, but not least, never ever ever buy cheap razors. Cheap razors are horrible for the skin. You usually end up with several nicks and, at the very least, razor burn. You don’t have to buy the most expensive razor, just stay away from the super cheap razors.
I don’t really have to explain this, do I? Trust me, nobody likes cheap toilet paper and it’s worth every bit of the extra money you’ll spend.
I had to include this one in my list since I work from home. Investing in a good office chair changed my life since I was having back pain from sitting in an uncomfortable chair all day long. I’m so thankful I finally splurged on a high quality chair so I can now write my posts without wincing from pain.
These are just a few items that can be worth the extra splurge of money in your budget. Tell me, what are some items you find yourself splurging your money on?
