Cheaper Doesn’t Always Mean a Bargain

If you’re looking for a bargain, you might want to check the designer aisle.

If you’re anything like me, you love a bargain. There’s nothing quite like the rush of getting something you really wanted at a great price. However, it’s important to understand that just because something’s inexpensive doesn’t mean it’s a bargain.

Quality Prevails

If you’re not quite catching my meaning, let’s take a purse for example. Let’s say you go to the five and dime or your local Wal-Mart and you spend $10 on a purse. Listen ladies, I don’t care how careful you are, that purse isn’t going to last out the year.

Now on the other hand, let’s say you go to the designer outlet and you spend $50 on a $150 purse. Chances are that purse is going to last you longer, you’re going to like it better and because it holds value, you’re going to take better care of it. Which is the better bargain? In my book spending $50 on a $150 purse is a better bargain than spending $10 on a $10 purse.

Don’t Sacrifice Quality for a Bargain

Yes, a bargain is something that you should go out of your way for, but that doesn’t mean you should confuse a bargain with cheap merchandise. By keeping this in mind, you’ll be a better bargain hunter and you’ll be getting a lot more for your dollar.
