11 Things That Are Actually Worth Spending Extra Money On


1. Vacuum

If you live in a carpeted space, it’s worth spending the extra dough on a solid vacuum cleaner. Crappy vacuums just move the dirt around after a few months of use. A good vacuum makes this chore suck less by sucking more, if you know what I mean.

2. Dish soap

For those of us who still wash dishes by hand like it’s 1959, take note. Buy the name-brand stuff, the other crap is extra watery and you have to use twice as much of it to get the job done.

3. Tattoos

You don’t want to end up here.

4. Condoms

Pay up now or you’ll be paying for it the next 18 years. Besides, doesn’t the penis in your life deserve the best?

5. Pregnancy test

There is no room for error in these pivotal life moments.

6. Shoes

Especially shoes for work or athletic activities. If you’re spending a considerable amount of time in them, you should spend a considerable amount of money.

7. Hooker

Trust me.

8. Mattress

Sleeping is another thing you spend a lot amount of time doing (some more than others). Never underestimate the power of a good night’s sleep.

9. Dog toys

If you skimp on the quality of the toy, you’re only going to spend a lot more money buying replacements for the ones your dog destroyed within the first 5 minutes of having it.

10. Garbage bags

Personally, I love cleaning up soggy, stinky trash off the floor on garbage day. But most people don’t, so I suggest spending the extra two bucks.

11. Toilet paper

Because “Poop Fingers” is not a flattering nickname. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
