Re: Cheapskate or Spend-O-Matic ?
It really depends with me. I often spend more than I should on clothes for a couple of reasons. If I am buying work clothes I want to be comfortable. I do a lot of outdoors stuff in the winter and will buy the better brand because it is worth it and it sure beats being cold.
With big ticket items I feel it is often better to spend a little more than go on the cheaper side. I am not talking about buying top of the line stuff but reputable stuff instead of the discounted stuff.
As for grocery food I will often buy the cheaper brand as long as it is offered.
