Default I never buy cheap...

In order to save a little money, sometimes I just get the "storebrand" or "generic" products. However, there are some things that I always buy at a premium.

I never buy cheap toilet paper. The cheap kind is thin and useless.

Also, scented candles. Someone got me a cheap scented candle as a gift and it made my eyes water.

What about you?

If you buy a cheap power supply for your PC I will personally show up at your place and smack you. Those things will probably damage components in the likely event that they fail

Shoes and especially from wal-mart cause they tend to fall apart and rip easily.

I rarely ever buy any dirt cheap items and food. I could save money by doing so, but I don't see the point if I know the food isn't gonna taste as good/if the items aren't gonna work properly or last long.

I'll also never buy cheap ass clothing. I don't care much for clothing brands and I don't buy expensive clothing, I just stay away from anything poorly made with uncomfortable/poor quality material.

Clothing and shoes especially. It's just not worth killing your feet to save yourself a few bucks, or having to replace them in a year because they're torn to shreds.

Also gym memberships. I will gladly pay $40/month for good equipment and plenty of space.

I agree with the shoes. The cheap ****s get destroyed in like 2 months. Yet I still keep buying them.

Just thought of one. Deodorant. Bad deodorant burns my armpits sometimes.
