During the lean, early years of my marriage, saving pennies was a necessity. However, as we got older and our financial situation improved, I found I continued to pay as little as possible for everything and anything.

It wasn’t that I couldn’t afford more; it was that I didn’t want to spend more.

But my shopping philosophy eventually began to shift. After years of being surrounded by poorly made stuff that never seemed to work as I had hoped, I decided that just because something is cheap, it isn’t necessarily a good value.

Some of you may be saying “duh,” but it took me a while to accept that simple truth.

Now I value quality over price, especially for certain items. Following are seven things that are often worth the higher price.
