You Get What You Pay For

The cliche is “you get what you pay for.” This weekend as I was outside snowblowing I told myself that a) having a snowblower and b) spending a little extra for a higher quality snowblower is well worth it. You do, indeed, get what you pay for. Then, as I mindlessly went up-and-down the driveway, creating snow-line symmetry, I thought that’s all well and good, but what defies the cliche? In other words, what can you actually crimp a little on and still get something good? The first thing that popped into my head was wine. I’m not a huge wine drinker, but I do know that some $6.99 bottles taste GREAT! So what else? What other products defy the cliche?
