Something I’ve learned is that it’s easier to spend $50 ten times than it is to spend $500 once. And yet, it’s those $50 items we typically find at garage sales, not the $500 items.
I love the idea of “buy the best you can afford.” For me, it’s items that I use every day: skin and hair care, food, and bedding. Vanity, and creature comforts; yup, that’s me!
I belong to a group where someone posted this question: What is something you own that you spent what you consider to be an exorbitant amount of money on, that was 1000% worth it? Here’s a list of most replies:
