These days, it's harder to splurge, but everyone has SOMETHING they're willing to pay a little more for. Maybe they used to cheap out on it . . . but once they got a taste of luxury, they can't go back.
There's a thread where people are talking about their splurges online, and the highlights include:
1. Windshield wipers. The cheap ones always skip across the windshield.
2. Dish soap and hand soap.
3. Mattresses and bedding.
4. Earbuds and headphones. Also: Technology, in general.
5. Clothing . . . shoes . . . and socks.
10. Garbage bags.
11. Toilet paper.
12. Dry pasta noodles.
15. Handyman tools.
16. Non-stick cookware.
17. Paint brushes.
19. And some people say they used to cheap-out on EMPLOYEES, but after paying for a high-quality version . . . they can't go back. (Amen to that!)
