In contrast to the other thread, what things will you ALWAYS cheap out on? For me its: --Appliances (I have a $20 blender [it really is a piece of crap and can't cut ice or even power up enough to spin a blender with ice in it, this pretty much enraged me while trying to make a fruit smoothie the other night] and a $25 toaster oven). I would like stainless steel major appliances though. --Dishes, every time I'm in some store that's selling teacups for $60 I just think "Who the hell needs a $60 teacup?" and then I think about the dollar store/IKEA plain white dishes I have and think to myself how awesome I am for being smart when it comes to buying dishes and silverware, lol. --Toilet paper, I used to be a 2-ply guy like any other self-respecting individual, until the wife got me on 1-ply and seriously, 2-ply doesn't compare anymore, you can't get as clean with 2-ply as with 1-ply, this is not noticeable until switching to 1-ply, true story. --Furniture, but make no mistake, I don't buy cheapo Walmart stuff etc. All of the stuff I buy is very nice and very stylish, but I don't need some $2000 dresser or sofa. I also like my furniture to be relatively compact in that I can't stand the enormous bulky eyesore couches/sofas most people have, so more compact stuff I think tends to be cheaper anyway (think like IKEA sofas). My $80 desk is also OK, certainly don't need a $1000 1-ton carved desk. When furniture is cheap, it's easy to deal with when you move and easily replaced for more modern/updated stuff. --Household cleaners, generics are fine (except detergent) --Medication, generics are usually fine --Bath towels --Haircuts, whether they are $10 or $50 they all look the same when you have really short hair like I do. I probably sound like a slob who lives in an unimpressive place, but all of my clothes are quite nice/designer, nice watch, nice manbag, nice shoes, and my apartment is very modern and extremely clean, and well-kept. But for the everyday incidentals, I just don't spend much. Other than those necessary consumable things everyone needs, I tend not to be cheap with most stuff--if something isn't quality, I tend not to buy it. What do you always cheap out on?
