You Get What You Pay For

You always hear people say, “You get what you pay for.” Is that true? Do you really believe that? Are there exceptions?

Here’s a general question that always generates heated debates in person so let’s see what it can do here:

Is it better to pay more to receive a higher quality item or would you rather get a more inexpensive item that needs to be replaced sooner.

I say the more inexpensive item is still better because you get something brand new again if the old one has to be replaced as in this example. An expensive pair of running shoes may last several years and cost you a hundred dollars. You can get much cheaper shoes than that and over a several year period get new ones several times and spend the same hundred dollars.

Your turn.
