Cheap and Often or Expensive and Rarely?

Where do you stand on the whole “Buy Cheap and Often” or “Buy Expensive and Rarely” debate?

Whether it’s a nice pair of shoes, a new jacket, or maybe even a first car, we approach our buying decisions somewhere along this spectrum. Perhaps we even range along this spectrum depending on the context (or financial pressure) in which we are making our purchasing decisions. When I was younger, I was quite happy with an “on the cheap” first car … but then again, that car didn’t last long. These days I just want a reliable vehicle that is going to survive my children – even though it costs more!


In some ways, I think that our placement along this range connects back to how valuable we see ourselves being. If we diminish our own value, we’re much less likely to spend the money on the more expensive, higher-quality item because we don’t see the value alignment. If you are feeling like maybe you have not been valuing yourself highly enough, maybe you need to be reminded that YOU are the Pot of Gold!

Another way to look at value can be seen in how we approach our business processes. If there are 30 different tasks in our organisation that all require 5 hours of work a week – that’s a whole lot of work! We know that if we got those processes better organised, we might be able to shave half an hour off each – but who has the time? Consider, though, that If we were willing to invest an extra 2 hours once to figure out a better way of doing it, it would not take very long to recoup those 2 hours. A little upfront time investment can pay dividends in when more efficient processes or implemented.
