I ALWAYS REGRET BUYING THE CHEAP VERSION OF ________

A good deal isn't always good
  1. Dental floss
    I always think Glide is too expensive and then hate on the cheap one I ended up with for how poorly it "glides"
  2. Window A/C units
    You get what you pay for
  3. Toilet paper
    Just spend the extra money people
  4. Socks
  5. Any service that involves your face : facialists, hair stylists, waxing.
    Then it's on your head you dummy
  6. Candles
    The cheap ones smell cheap right ?! Or am I just a bougey asshole
  7. Kitty litter
    Because scooping another animal's poop is already less than ideal
  8. Underwear
    And bras. Especially sports bras.
  9. Razors
  10. Things I considered: coffee, gel manicures, printers, gasoline ?!
  11. Jeans

    Always better to spend the extra few dollars for plastic

    More comfortable. Better looking. Will last for ages.

    Cheap ones loose their shape so quickly!

  19. Condoms
    Just not something I'm inclined to use an "off brand" version of, you know?

  20. Data for my phone plan.

  21. Sushi
    All you can eat 'fresh' fish? No thank you. Inexpensive hole in the wall sure, but I want my raw fish to remind me of the ocean not the pier.

  22. Computers
    People are always like "Apple doesn't even have a laptop for less than a thousand dollars" and I'm thinking dang, I buy the $3000 one because it is my primary source of income and I want the best tools.

  25. Luggage. Top brands give you lifetime warranty
    Suggested by   @huyett
  26. Outdoor gear. Definitely don't want to discover your raincoat is not actually completely waterproof when you're in the middle of a thunderstorm miles away from shelter
