There are times in our lives when we feel optimistic. We go on vacation or do other things that may not be necessary but make us feel alive. Then there are times when things don’t seem quite as rosy… take the situation we are navigating today. After the past 2+ years, we are now staring down a sizable rise in inflation. So it’s understandable that we now look for ways to save a bit here and cut a bit there. But it is also good to remember that the cheapest solution isn’t always the least expensive.
All of us have, at times, looked for the most cost-effective way to solve a need or task. But, this can often lead to additional costs, whether it be purchasing a lower grade tool that is not up to the task or maybe something that wasn’t exactly what you were looking for, but the price was right. This can lead to aggravation and wasted time at best (redoing a task). Too often, we end up buying a better quality product to replace the one we originally purchased.
So the next time you’re out bargain hunting, remember that no matter the economic environment, quality is always quality and must be included in the equation. Once quality and the life of the product are considered, along with the purchase price, the actual value can truly be determined.
Oh, and by the way, there are a few products that will last a lifetime. Once purchased, these items will be replaced or repaired free of charge forever. Click HERE for an example.
