6 Quality Items to Splurge On

These days, more and more people are discovering the magic behind scaling back and living a simpler lifestyle. That being said, many people have a difficult time deciding what is worth spending less on and what things to invest a little more in. If you find yourself in this category, here are a few items that you should feel OK splurging on when the time comes.

A Good Mattress

When it is time for a new mattress there are so many things to consider. Do you want to go with memory foam or do you prefer the feel of a more traditional pocket sprung mattress?

Whatever you choose to go with regarding materials, one thing is for sure: you shouldn’t skimp on the price. Spending a bit extra on a good mattress will save you more in the long run, while at the same time giving you a better nights sleep.

Safety Features in a Vehicle

While this doesn’t strictly refer to a particular item, safety in general is nothing to cut corners on when it comes to cost. Newer safety features like pedestrian detection and brake assist can be literal lifesavers and are certainly worth making the extra investment on.

A Watch

A quality timepiece makes a statement of elegance and professionalism. When you make the decision to splurge on a luxury watch, you truly make an investment while at the same time avoiding the hassle of having to replace a cheap watch every year.

For example, Audemars Piguet is a classic make of watch that, if purchased, will add a sophistication and style to your wardrobe that is hard to match. Furthermore, the quality of such a timepiece is so good that you won’t have to replace it every year as you would with a cheap brand of watch.

A Leather Handbag

When it comes to quality materials, leather is the epitome of excellence. If you are someone who uses a handbag on a daily basis, you can’t do much better for yourself than a genuine leather bag.

Leather is incredibly durable and has water resistant properties as well. It is also the type of material that is versatile enough to be used for day-to-day living as well as for less casual events.

A Set of Quality Kitchen Knives

If you are someone who likes to cook, then you should absolutely invest in a set of good kitchen knives. While purchasing a full set in a block might be a cheaper option, taking the time to select each individual knife that you most prefer will be more beneficial in the long run.


So, this technically isn’t an “item” per say, but spending the extra money on a holiday or trip is definitely worth doing. Sometimes the most luxurious things in life aren’t things at all, but experiences. Investing in an experience that you can carry with you for the rest of your life is definitely worth it in the long run.
