Quality vs Quantity, Which do you choose?

My son and I were talking this past week about quantity vs quality.  Which do you prefer?  I’ve always been a quality type of gal.  I recall saving part from each paycheck right after I graduated from high school. Even though the majority of my money was gonna be used for college, I stashed away a little each week so that I could get a “boom box” for my college dorm room.  Sure I could have gotten a cheaper one, but I had set my sights on a particular brand with the features I wanted.  Shortly before summer ended, I had saved enough and bought the “boom box”.  PS… 30 years later I still have it, although I rarely use the cassette anymore, it still reminds me of the choice to spend wisely, the choice to spend money on quality.  Yes, over the years I’ve had other smaller and cheaper portable stereos, but those always seem to break.

It seems I’ve always leaned towards quality.  It just made more sense to me to spend my hard earned money on something that was gonna last, or something that made a difference.  Sure I could purchase in quantity, but then I would just have a lot of useless stuff laying around.  I have a tendency to purchase after some thought and research, so it’s not surprising I approach all my purchase the same way.

When I purchase consumable products, I also lean towards quality over quantity.  Sure I could buy lower quality but it’s been my experience that I just end up using more, or being disappointed with the results.  

When choosing what I use for personal care I research ingredients, descriptions and even reviews.  That way I can make the decision to purchase the best quality over the most quantity.
