Here’s when it doesn’t pay to cut back:
- When dry cleaning a suit – never clean one part without the other, because colors will change slightly.
- When contributing to your savings account.
- When buying running shoes – get a good fit, even if it costs more.
- When buying a mattress – spend more upfront to get more usage and a firmer mattress for years to come.
In general, it pays to spend more upfront if it means your purchase will last longer!
