Log in to Reply “Buy cheap, buy twice.” I learned this from being around trades people, they say it about their tools. If you rely on it for your living and you buy the cheap ones, it will break and you will need to buy it again. “2 is 1, 1 is none.” This is common with the military. Even the best equipment can fail and break, and will do so exactly when you need it most. If you only have one, and you can’t replace it, you essentially have none. So I would say buy the highest quality product that you can afford to replace on anything that you rely on for your wellbeing, career, survival etc. Tools, business electronics and appliances, motorcycle helmets, car tyres, basically anything that goes between you and the ground, so shoes and mattresses included, Also, Toilet Paper.

He earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles. > But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that’d still be keeping his feet dry in ten years’ time, while the poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet. > This was the Captain Samuel Vimes ‘Boots’ theory of socioeconomic unfairness Log in to Reply Condoms!

I used to buy the cheap $30 belts from Kohls, they would start to fall apart after about 9 months. I bought a nice $130 belt a few years back and I wear it more frequently than the cheap belts and it is in great condition still. Once the rest of the cheap belts go, I’m going to buy some more expensive ones. Log in to Reply Footwear.
