    I figured this would be a good idea for a new thread!

    What are somethings you never see your self going the cheaper route on?

    My top 3 are
    1. Sky-Diving lessons/sessions
    2. Gasoline-AKA the regular cheapest quality/
    3. Tires. And auto brakes for cars

    Food
    Single Malts (This I will not waver on. Either good stuff or nothing)
    OS
    Music

    My first one or two drinks, they can't be horrible stuff. But after 1 or 2 it doesn't matter.

    Motor oil - I use synthetic.

    Car tires.

    If my GF would post here, she would say cat food. Its almost 2 bucks a can.
