When it comes to certain products and services, the phrase “you get what you pay for” is definitely true. While you don’t always have to spend more to get a durable and quality product, there are plenty of items that are worth every extra penny. Check out these spendy but oh-so-wonderful examples:
If you are flying internationally, spending the extra money to sit in first class is definitely worth it. On shorter domestic trips the flight attendants may not have the time to make first-class travel as luxurious as the longer overseas flights, but they definitely do on long journeys. International flights in first class typically include the lie-flat seats, which help you sleep and arrive at your destination feeling fresh, as well as delicious food, beverages and more attentive service.
A Good Bottle of Vodka
While you can purchase a variety of inexpensive vodkas at your local grocery store or liquor store, this is a beverage that warrants spending more for something really spectacular. Ketel One Vodka is a great example of a delicious vodka that is made from quality ingredients. As the company notes in a video on YouTube, Ketel One starts with the finest grain alcohol made from 100 percent wheat. Its high-quality ingredients and intricate distillation process create a smooth and distinct taste that sets it apart.
A Professional Set of Tools
If you have ever pulled your hammer out of your toolbox only to have the head break off and fly across the room, you know the importance of high-quality tools. Sure, you can pick up a set of bargain basement tools, but chances are good they will not last and may be dangerous to use. ToolGuyd suggests Craftsman Professional tools for weekend warriors and DIYers who have a bit more to spend; for super-premium tools, the Snap-On brand is the way to go.
A Nice Mattress
If your aching back wakes you up in the morning instead of your alarm, it’s time to spring for a new mattress. Since you spend up to a third of your life snoozing, you owe it to yourself to splurge. Examples of high-end mattresses include Tempur-Pedic and Sleep Number beds. Lie down and check them for comfort at your local mattress store.
A Great Bra
A well-fitting bra can do more than support “the girls.” It helps you appear slimmer, makes your clothes fit better and prevents back issues. The next time you need to buy some new bras, schedule an appointment with a professional bra fitter. Nordstrom offers free appointments with trained bra fit specialists. Once you know what your perfect size is, spring for a few spendier bras that will last longer and give you the support you need and deserve.
Organic milk is at least twice the price of regular milk, but once you taste its creamy deliciousness, you will not want to go back. Organic milk is also healthier, containing more omega 3 essential fatty acids. Plus, it’s free from chemicals and other harmful substances.
