  5. Antoinette M says:

    Yes, quality over price, especially when choosing a mattress.

  6. Tamra Phelps says:

    I definitely agree about mattresses. A bad mattress will make your life a misery. Buy the best you can afford.

  7. Sarah L says:

    I won some bamboo sheets and they are the best. Soft and long lasting.

  8. Robert Young says:

    I have to strongly agree with you on the windshield washer blades, I thought that I would buy the cheapest one’s because I hardly ever used them throughout the year, well, that was the biggest mistake that I ever did with trying to save a buck especially on something that is really important to have on your vehicle during those times that you really need them and depend on them to work and make it so you can see out of your windshield and safely drive your car during not only rain but snow storms as well and the second time that I had to use these bargain wipers that I just had to buy for next to nothing the rubber just crumbled away and it was almost impossible to see to drive during this rain storm that I was right in the middle of but thank goodness that it did not end in a lesson learned that ended with me or someone else getting hurt as I made it home safely, and now I tell everyone to spend the extra money on wiper blades because in the long run they will pay for themselves by lasting for years as well as they well get you thru those bad storms that all of us have to drive thru from time to time and to do it safely out ways all the reasons to save money with buying the cheap wipers, Lesson learned the hard way for me!

      Oh, I know what you mean! It’s good that you didn’t have a wreck. I’m always thankful to get out of those messes in one piece. It really can be dangerous to not have windshield wipers that work well.

    The mattresses and sheets make a lot of sense. We do spend an awful lot of time using those.

  10. monique s says:

    Some great items on the list. I think the mattress one is so true as that better sleep is a life quality changer

  11. Calvin says:

    It’s a good idea to invest in some things you use everyday and actually need. Worth it to spend a bit more on those, you’re right.

  12. Sylvia D Zajis says:

    I have to agree that good quality sheets and mattresses will be a good investment for the long haul of having a fixed income. I know that as a disabled woman, I spend many hours in bed and the quality of the mattress and sheets matters. The support and feel of each is definitely appreciated when I am not feeling so well. Thank you for the other tips as well.

    • Lisa Ehrman says:

      I know what you mean. I have chronic illnesses and have spent much of my time lying down. Mattresses, especially need to suit your back’s needs so that you won’t get additional back pain on top of everything else. Thanks for sharing:)

  13. Debbie P says:

    These are good splurges for anyone on a low income. .

  14. Monica McConnell says:

    a good mattress makes all the difference in the world

  15. megan allen says:

    Yes!! This is all so true and smart!! Mattress is a biggie for me! They are expensive but they last awhile and sleep is so vital for many important aspects of your life! Thanks for once again sharing your wisdom!!

  16. Tina Alexander says:

    Since my household is larger now, I have learned that I can’t just buy what I want. I have to make wiser choices.Some things I refuse to buy if I can’t find them at a cheap price. At the same time I will invest more money in needed household appliances w/ warranties.

  17. Sarah L says:

    It was surprising to me how much difference having good windshield wipers make.

  18. Heather Swanson says:

    very insightful ideas.

  19. Lauryn R says:

    I couldn’t agree more that there are definitely things that are worth spending more on. The number one for me is a mattress! We spend a lot of time on it and a good night’s sleep is so important.

  20. Dawn Mielke says:

    Yep. I splurge on Cell phone, Mattress/bed, car. Other items tend to fall by wayside on weather they are necessary or if I’ve earned them from setting goals.
