I have realised recently that when I buy things that are cheap, they often don't last. I'm sick of having to go out and replace my clothing and kitchen appliances every 6 months. I am starting to do more research before I buy items and spend more money on each item I buy. It makes them last longer and I feel less frustrated with replacing objects. Often it works out cheaper over the long term as well. This blog is all about how to research the best brands for everything that you might buy so that you can be a smarter shopper.
