What Things Are Worth Spending Extra For?

Cash Flow Management

In my daily reading, I came across an article listing items where paying extra for quality makes good sense.  Then… I lost the article.

When I searched the internet for the list, I found over 20 articles on the subject.  Some articles were from lesser known sites, like ranker.com, buzzfeed.com, awealthofcommonsense.com, and financialsamurai.com.  I also found comparable articles on CNBC, Esquire, Business Insider, and Time.  (To see a list of articles click here.)

Do these articles agree on what’s worth splurging for?  Actually, yes!  I was surprised that the lists agreed where spending more makes good sense. 

Items on more than one list:

  • Automobile tires
  • Electric toothbrush
  • Amazon Prime
  • A nice suit
  • Coffee maker
  • Direct flights
  • Ergonomic desk chair
  • Luggage
  • Bra
  • Vacations
  • Digital camera (SLR)
  • Running shoes
  • Haircare products

There were items on most lists:

  • Great kitchen knife
  • Toilet paper
  • Hair coloring/cut
  • Organic produce

The big winners where the two items were on almost all lists:

  • Bed sheets
  • Quality mattress

These “consensus picks” make good sense (although I cannot directly vouch for good running shoes or bras).  Given the amount of our lives spent in bed, I agree that spending more on bedding and mattresses is a great investment.
