10 Times It's Okay to Spend More

Here at Alot Finance, we like to spend a lot of time advocating for financial responsibility. We’re happy to walk you through the basics of stocks or ways you can take a vacation without paying an arm and a leg – we know you prefer those! However, it isn’t all about saving money. Sometimes, you’re actually better off paying a little more to get something better than what you would have by going cheap.

While going cheap is sometimes ideal for something you may use and toss almost immediately, others you’ll probably keep for a while. Additionally, if you’re going to go out and do something, spending a little more is preferable because you’ll end up with a better experience. Then again, the opposite can also be said.

Basically, sometimes in life, the old adage is absolutely true: you get what you pay for. If you skimp out, you may end up really disappointed and wishing you had spent a few extra dollars for the upgraded version. Before you waste your money, here are 10 things that spending more can make a huge difference.

We suggest that you really consider how much you’re spending on these items (or experiences) so you don’t regret it later.
