Whether it’s tackling an upcycling project or going for the less expensive option, it’s easy to get caught up in saving money whenever you can. And while being a savvy shopper is always something to brag about, sometimes going for the splurge pays off big in the end. When caught with the cheaper option and the more expensive option in hand, it’s important to consider long-term quality and efficiency for your home. Less-expensive options are great for quick fixes and small details, but when it comes to your home’s staples splurging is better.
Yet, it can be tough figuring out what household items are worth the splurge and which are not. As a general rule, home décor accessories tend to be trendy and relatively temporary. Feel free to pick up a lampshade at your local thrift store or a fresh set of throw pillows for under $10. However, splurging is the way when it’s time to buy mainstays like your refrigerator or something you’ll use reguarly, like bed sheets. Check out our top ten list of household items worth the higher price for your guide on splurging vs. saving.
