You know those jeans that you pay $12 for, but halfway through the day they’re so stretched out that you can’t keep them on? Yep, I’ve had those. I’ve also had the ones that can be worn for multiple days without any stretch-out struggle.
My point here is that I’m learning the value of quality. I’m referring to clothes today, but can be applied to many areas of life. As I’m sure you can imagine, I’d rather have fewer, high quality items than a whole closet full of items that are basically disposable. Cause if you think about it, it’s the same cost, just fewer items to keep up with!
Basically, items that are going to get regular use, wear and tear, are good ones to make the investment. For example, jeans, tops, shoes, undergarments, pajamas, sentimental daily wear jewelry, coats.
I do see the value in spending less on items that are not used often, have high possibility of being misplaced or are very trendy. Such items may be sunglasses, formal attire, formal shoes, costume jewelry, any event specific items or swimsuits.
The last point that I want to make here is that, high quality doesn’t always mean expensive. A good place to begin locating these items would be thrift shopping or clearance sections. I’ve found some pretty amazing deals on high quality items in both places. Other times I’ve had to break down and make the investment, but it’s always been worth it!
