Who doesn’t love a bargain? Scheming to get the best price, whether by utilizing coupons, sales, frequent-shopper points or other tips, is a rewarding and fun pastime.

But sometimes, purchasing the absolute cheapest item in a certain category isn’t the way to go. That old saying, “You get what you pay for” rings true time and time again.

Sure, sometimes, cheap is the way to go. You don’t need a fancy designer T-shirt when a Target special will do, and, honestly, most ink pens work just as well whether they’re a pricey collector brand or a simple ballpoint. And if someone’s judging you on the cost of your socks or the designer name on your jeans, maybe that says more about them than what you wear.

But here’s a look at 22 items that you might want to save for, rather than jumping on the lowest possible price without looking elsewhere.
