They don’t make them like they used to, do they? Over the past few decades, it seems like the things I purchase don’t last as long. I still have tools I bought twenty years ago, yet I’m replacing tools I bought ten years ago. My conspiracy brain thinks this is intentional in order to get consumers to buy more things. Or it could just be the result of companies finding new ways to cut corners, lower expenses, and boost profits.
Regardless, I’m starting to put more thought into my purchases, making sure to buy things that will last for many years. And hopefully, the rest of my life. Purchasing high-quality, long-lasting products is more expensive at first, but in the long-run, it can save you money because you’re not replacing things every few years. Plus, you won’t have to worry about them breaking on you.

He talks about watches, knives, boots, bags, and cookware. They are a bit pricey, but like I said, they could save you money in the long run. Follow the link below to check it out.
