So I’ve been asked again and again but many different people, why do you spend so much money on widget x,y or z? You can go to Walmart and get the same thing cheaper. I beg to differ, I’ve always been told as a child growing up by my parents, if you can afford the more expensive well made and tested model of the same thing go and get it. If you can’t afford it right away, save and then go get it. Don’t settle for nothing but the best.
Now as an adult, I have to say I understand totally what all of this means now and I try to pass this knowledge down to my child.
For example, if you go to Best Buy or Amazon you can find some pretty nice TV sets on there. But if you go to Walmart, you will find the same thing but way cheaper. That is not true, what you find at Walmart might look the same but in the example above the TV is not. The panel used to manufacture that TV is totally different and a lower quality than those you will find at another higher end big box.
That is just a simple example, check out the video below to show a real world comparison of how things differ and like the old saying goes “you get what you paid for” so buy the cheaper one and you will get what you paid for.
