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.

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.
