Here are 20 items people say they would never buy on the cheap. People buy multiples of the cheap version rather than one of the decent version because they feel like they are stretching their dollar and helping more people. In places with real heavy winters, you can’t buy cheap coats and sweaters. My grandpa told me you don’t cheap out on anything that goes underneath you: tires, mattress, shoes. Gran is wise, a customer friendly version I used to use is: “buy it nice, or buy it twice.”2.
