If you are experimenting with various products switching your choices to the cheaper options, you might have already realised not all of the cheaper products are good alternatives to expensive ones. Indeed, it is possible to substitute a great variety of expensive goods with cheaper ones, however, there are situations in which it does not work.
This article will tell you more about such products and help you to make better financial decisions.
Toilet paper and paper towels
These products are one of the most common things people prefer to buy cheaper. There is nothing surprising about it since these goods are utterly disposable so it seems logical not to pay for them too much.
This can actually work if cheap toilet paper or paper towels are actually of a satisfying quality. Unlike cheaper food which might not be tasty or healthy but it is still available in the same amount as its more expensive alternative, these goods are usually specified by paper density and this is exactly the factor which allows manufacturers to decrease the price.
As a result, you can indeed get a roll of a toilet paper twice cheaper than another one, although you might even need three such rolls during the time for which you would be using a more expensive one. The same goes for paper towels. Unfortunately buying such goods for small money is rarely a good investment and in many cases you will actually need to buy even more of them finally paying more then you could have paid.
By the way, if cheap toilet paper is not exceptionally thin, in all likelihood, it is rather harsh which is just making it rather unhealthy.
If you have ever tried painting the walls at home, you are certainly aware of how unpleasant this task can be. While it might be physically draining, the whole preparations as well as the process of painting itself are extremely time-consuming.
Even though paying less for paint is so alluring, there are several negative aspects which should make you change your decisions.
First of all, such paint usually does not have the same density as more expensive alternatives. On the one hand, it might be more difficult for your to get the colour you wish if you are planning to mix it with other paint. On the other hand, even if you are going to use pure paint, you will have to cover the walls several times in order to let the paint cover them properly. This certainly makes you will be prolonging this task even more.
Furthermore, after your tedious work, you are likely to find the colour of the paint has faded a way too quickly. This is another negative feature of such a product.
Finally, getting more expensive product will allow you to reduce the amount of unhealthy chemicals used for its manufacturing. Just as it is typical for many other more expensive products, their production uses more advanced technologies which are less harmful for people and the natural environment.
