you do unless your smart about it... if your in the right place at the right time you can easily pick up secondhand stuff for much less than you should be able to (maybe sell it on afterwards). Things with brands on it oftern increase price without doing much for quality. That being said sometimes when you are buying new things like technology the price is oftern in line with quality because of the cost of parts and manufacture.
If you go to an Amish community, or any place where they sell goods and services, I am confident you will get a good buy for a fair price. I have never been disappointed. As far as the secular world is concerned: a roll of the dice!
It depends on what you are buying? Sometimes you can spend a lot of money and get disappointed in your purchase.For some things I think that you have to spend a lot of money on like good computers, cars (although I am fine with my car that I bought for 1,600 dollars at a county auction), couches, and beds. Trust me when I say this, cheap beds are cheap for a reason.
There is a big difference between the quality in discount stores and quality in department stores. Also if you go to a discount grocery store, the quality and taste of the food is different than the more expensive stores.
Sometimes yes and no, it depends on the item that you are buying. Also if you are good at haggling, you can buy expensive things at a much lower price. I believe in buying good quality things like laptops and mobile phones and also want them to last longer so I would be prepared to pay for what it's worth.
On small things cheap is usually just that all the way around. On small things these companies think even if everyone buys it once they are ahead.I mean things like dish soap, cleaners act. They also know that most won't bother complaining. I do !

I was just wondering, if you read a well written hub but it was something controversial that had a different opinion than you had, would you rate it thumbs down because of that or would you rate it on the hub itself ( written well, lots of information, good layout?)Just wondering because I write...

Awhile back the team started unfeaturing articles due to lack of traffic. Many here think this is a bad idea, and I agree. Doing this upsets many writers and has nothing to do with quality or how Google views our work...except for the fact that leaving low or no traffic articles online...

My son, who is 5, came home from school with a letter from a casting director, asking that he audition for a part in a film. It's a proper agency, the school knows the woman well, and it's a sequel to a film that did fairly well at the Box Office.We aren't sure. Would you agree?
