Don’t we all love looking for products with great deals or discounts to save money? However, there are certain products you should not take the cheaper route, especially when it involves convenience, safety, and comfort. 

Trash Bags

Cheap trash bags will have you cleaning up spills when they rip. Or “they are so stuck together that you can’t even open them fully,” writes a user. So, instead of learning this the hard way, invest in quality trash bags.

Do not ruin your back by getting a cheap desk chair. One user writes, “I got a really bad one (desk chair) because it was cheap and looked cool. I had no back support, was not breathable, got dirt easily, and was hard to clean. It was so uncomfortable.”

Quality mattresses may feel expensive, but they aren’t. Think of it this way, “The average mattress is good for around 10 years, so when you break down the cost over that length of time, it’s always worth spending more money upfront.”

Tattoos are permanent, so do not cheap out on them. This is why “Good tattoos aren’t cheap, cheap tattoos aren’t good.” Another commentator says, “Tattoos can already be a source of regret, but a bad tattoo is guaranteed regret.”

“If you get a cheap computer power supply, it could take your whole system with it if it fails and, in worse situations, start an electrical fire,” a user points out. Besides, “Good power supplies are usually warrantied for 10-15 years, so that’s at least 3 builds worth,” adds a commentator.

“Get the right fire extinguisher for the area,” advises a user, “For most homes, a good general-purpose fire extinguisher should be in the kitchen. If you’re working on many electronics, you need one rated for that.”
