Things you don't mind paying more for


#1

OR things you would rather get the expensive version of.

This is a very middle class thread.


#2

A decent pint.


#3

meat


#4

Percy Pigs are slightly better than Eric the Elephants so I don’t mind paying a bit more for them


#5

Chocolate
Earphones
Burritos from the nice burrito place rather than Taco Bell


#6

Toilet roll.

Bread.

Laser eye surgery.


#7

I will always pay more for shoes, clothes made with natural materials and skincare. Haven’t been in a primark or h&m since 2010. Bad and bougie.


#8

shampoo
clothes
headphones


#9

wire magazine


#10

I wouldn’t ever buy expensive toilet roll at full price but if it’s on offer then ok. Otherwise the mid range stuff is fine.


#11

Public services


#12

Like paying a pound for the loo at the train station?


#13

Think it’s a dogging thing


#14

pretty much everything to be honest. i get the most expensive version i could afford of pretty much everything


#15

Coffee. I’ll happily buy own brand stuff, but you have to shell out £3 for a decent cup of coffee.

I must admit the cheapo stuff Lidl stocks is pretty decent though


#16

Clothes. I’ve found cheap stuff to be largely a false economy.
Torture-free food.


#17

Bike kit.


#18

chopped tomatoes
pasta
trainers
fresh tomatoes
tomato ketchup
fried green tomatoes at the whistlestop café (special edition)


#19

Baked Beans


#20

Some clothes.

Some musical equipment (need to be careful to not fall into the “more expensive = better” trap because budget gear nowadays is astonishingly better than the equivalent stuff from even ten years ago, but some stuff just costs more and that’s ok).
