Things Actually Worth Spending Money On
Things that are truly worthy of the sentiment: "Quality, not quantity."
- •Toilet PaperIt goes without saying that when you use toilet paper, you expect it to work. Very well. It also goes without saying that anything less isn't optional.
- •Garbage BagsThere is no greater feeling of defeat than that of an entire bag of garbage splits wide open on that long, terrible journey to the curb at night.
- •Paper TowelsAt the end of the day, buying cheap paper towels only begets more paper towels in the bin.
- •MultivitaminsOur bodies aren't meant to digest rocks. A lot of vitamins source things like calcium through difficult to absorb sources. It's simply not how our bodies hu-man and while it may be cheaper to pop a little rock hard pill, your body will absorb more (and more readily) with something food-based.
- •Adhesive BandagesSome brands are always falling off and that's hardly sanitary. At that point, why bother? Side note: If nothing else, these can also be procured at doctors offices while they make you wait for them to arrive. Some people call this stealing. I think of it as reparations. Which is not to say that I advocate liberating anything from anywhere without permission. Then again, I'm not not saying to do so. Take that as you like.
- •UmbrellasEver been caught in a windy storm with a cheap umbrella? Yeah, me too. NEVER AGAIN.
- •Quality MattressYou spend appx. 1/3 of your life in bed, and sleep quality contributes so much to our health, happiness, and energy level. It's worth springing for a quality mattress if you have the opportunity to do so.
- •Shoes/InsolesChances are you're on your feet pretty often. It's a good idea to own at least one pair of high-quality shoes with good insoles that will last. Also- If the shoes aren't as supportive as you need them to be, springing for good insoles is worth every single penny.
