I don't mind buying expensive things. I like to buy high quality products, and those usually come with a higher price tag. Sometimes I find that the thing I've bought is absolutely worth the higher price, and other times I find that you're paying for the name, but less quality. Other times, I find that some products don't cost as much, but I get a heck of a lot of use out of them, disproportionate to the cost.
I thought we could start a list of high-quality products that give you the most bang for your buck.
First on my list is:
1. Merrill hiking shoes. They're around $100, but I can get two years out of them easily.
2. Cuisinart ceramic knives. Have been very sharp since we got them.
3. Name brand clothes and shoes for my son. He's 11 and wears stuff out in no time flat. Nikes hold up.
4. My wife says spices for cooking. She's good cook, so I'm going to listen to her. I don't know which brand, though.
What are yours?
