First off, it’d be so hard for me to keep buying anything if it were twice the price. I’m awful when it comes to anchoring to an initial price!

A quality used car might fit the list. I have purchased pre-owned vehicles off Craigslist a few times, and all have been good experiences. My target buy price is about $5k.

If I could have high confidence the ‘new car’ would last me 10+ years with safety and minimal non-routine maintenance, I might do it. Of course, I want to pay the market price and no higher 🙂

Another good one is the cost of an additional AAA membership when there is an existing family plan. It’s very affordable with good benefits.

It’s a cliche, and I always try to figure out how do to something in a cost-effective way, but there are family vacations that I would still cherish the memories of, even if they had been twice the cost.

I got a lifetime admission to the National Parks for $80 I believe. I think I just missed the deadline for it when it was $20. I’m assuming the extra $60 went to support our parks so I actually told my wife I was happy we paid more.

I always have trouble putting buy and happily in the same sentence. I go to extremes. If my K-Cups are not on sale, I’ll wait until they are to buy, I’m not paying a dollar a cup for coffee I make myself. On the other hand, I happily pay for a great experience. A few years ago I checked off a bucket list item with a cruise in the Queen Mary 2 that cost as much as our first house…and it wasn’t worth the price.

Dog toys. I can never have too many of them for our four dogs.
