Sorry, this is off topic, but that cost/worth thing reminded me of something....feel free to skip if you don't want to hear my meanderings.
My friend C. and his family have always bought the best quality of everything, for what they needed it for.
I remember as a teeanger his mother saying more than once "It all costs the same". As in you can either run all over to save a nickle, or buy something cheap that doesn't work as well, or just go ahead and buy what is good.
One exception C. has to this is paper towels. With 3 dogs and a big house, he really goes through them.
Whenever I grab a paper towel at his house I think, "What is this crap?" because it won't even tear right. It's wasteful because you have to use more sheets. On top of it all, he bitches how many paper towels he goes through.
So last week we were in Target together, and he said he had to get a roll of paper towels for the car for the trip back to Mexico. For some reason, paper towels and toilet paper there are really expensive compared to the US. Like a big roll of Bounty Select-a-size is about $5.00! I've stocked a bunch from the US down there.
He picks up some cheap 99 cent crap and I can't hold it in. "STOP buying that cheap crap! Jesus! Bounty Double Roll Select-a-Size is where it's at man!"
It was so funny. Two old farts arguing with each other in the middle of Target about paper towels. It was like he just kept trying to sneak some off brand roll into the cart, until finally I went and picked up 6 pack = 18 rolls for $15, tossed it in the cart, and handed him a $10 bill.
"Here. You keep 2 rolls, which are like 6 rolls, which is less than a dollar each. You're welcome"
2 days later he texted me saying now he saw the light.
