7 Things That Prove Cheaper Isn’t Always Better

We all want to save cash, but here are seven items that can end up costing you more if you decide to go the cheap route.

Cheapo paint may seem like a bargain, but you could end up spending more overall if you have to paint and repaint to get the coverage you need.

Not only could you end up using more paint initially, but bargain brands may also be less durable. That means you’ll be repainting again in no time.

Of course, you don’t have to run out and buy the most expensive cans either. Many midrange brands make perfectly good products. If you have a membership with Consumer Reports, check out their ratings.

For everyone else, head to the Good Housekeeping paint reviews to find the right pick for your project.
