When we change your mindset from getting the best deal to getting the best quality, it changes the emphasis from shopping to deciding what’s important. … My favorite pair of jeans gets worn 10 times more often than my other jeans. If I did away with the other jeans, I could afford to buy more of those things I really love. What if all of our stuff was mind blowingly awesome, even if we had way less of it?
Quality not quantity. This is especially important with the things you’ll use for extended periods of time. Apple’s 27” display may be $1000 but if you’re going to stare at it for 8+ hours a day I’d rather be staring at something beautiful over what was on sale down the street.
