Frugal People Reveal What You Should Never Buy Cheap

Money don't grow on trees. Money has to be used sparingly for 99% of the people. So many spenders will do just about anything for a discount, even a discount in change. Now a lot of these people are often called... cheap. But frugal has a better tone, or smart. There is no reason you can't save some money in one moment to fund another. And often... there are just some things you can't be thrifty on.

Redditor friendly_fertiliser3 wanted to know thoughts on when the best time to splurge your pennies by asking What's something you should never buy cheap? Every now and again... spending a little extra matters. __

PICASO DIDN'T PLAY IT CHEAP!

PAINT! i have found everytime i buy cheap paint i end up using way more and being very dissapointed with the durability. I'm not a painter i just paint a lot

NEVER PLAY IT UNSAFE WITH A VEHICLE!

If you work on your cars NEVER buy cheap jacks and jack stands... the life you save will be your own.

HELLO ARCHIE BUNKER!

A good chair makes a world of a difference.

SAFETY FIRST!

Motorcycle helmet! Hell, any sort of safety gear, and not just for motorcycles.

DON'T SKIP ON THE BASICS...

A friend of mine always used to say; A good bed and a good pair of shoes, because if you aren't in one, you're usually in the other.

BEAUTY IS PAIN! BEAUTY TAKES COIN!

If you're paying someone to cut you, pay them full price.

If they can't sell their tattoos, eye surgery, face lift, etc. without a coupon you don't want it.

BUYING ONCE IS ENOUGH!

I found out that cheaping out on PC parts = buying a better part a few months later due to the part breaking down.

THE EYES HAVE IT!

Lasik eye surgery. Pay for the doctor and staff who are highly respected, have published in medical journals, etc., and will take a great deal of time and effort with measurements to make sure they'll get it right.

ART TAKES $$$

Tattoos!

THE PROPER GLOVE ALWAYS!!

Condoms!

Don't disturb my beauty sleep! That's the one rule I have––and thankfully I live alone, so there isn't anyone to bother me, which is fabulous. But that doesn't mean I'm immune to getting woken up in the middle of the night. The worst way I can think of off the top of my head? The time a drunk guy wandered into my friend's yard and started banging on the window while I was trying to sleep. It was 3 a.m. The incident also gave me the fright of my life!

People told us about the experiences that yanked them out of dreamland after Redditor GratefulD_86 asked the online community,

I love food! Maybe a little too much. It's been an especially amorous relationship over this pandemic. And I know I'm not alone.

All of our palettes are tuned to our own personal tastes. And sometimes certain items and combinations of tastes can leave others less than enticed.

I've lost track of all the side-eye I've gotten when I declare how much I enjoy PINEAPPLE on pizza. I said it. I meant it. Fight me. Let's discuss who else has eclectic tastes.

Redditor u/CatVideoFest wanted to discuss the mixing of certain ingredients that don't leave the best taste in one's mouth by asking:
