Is Paying more better?
I have seen this creep into some conversations and some have taken offense that the more expensive is mentioned as a envy tactic.
Living our daily lives does it make a purchase better because of what we pay or where we shop?
I do not think that is true. Some have said they find good useable items at the the thrift store.
I worked in Accounting when I first got out of HS at a major high end department store. The markup on designer cloths was ridiculous cost was 1.99 and they would put them on the floor for 500.00. So we know cost did not make that a better item.
People shopped at that store to say they purchased an item at a high cost or to personally feel they are doing well financially because they shopped at a particular store.
There are millions of articles that cosmetics cost are not better in many cases because you purchased it at Saks or Marshalls a year later it is the same product and the same ingredients. You can buy a better cosmetic at your local drug store.
I feel it is not where you shop but if you know how to shop.
What do you think?
