Everything someone could ever desire or need is readily available today, whether you want to shop online or at a physical store. However, what about the stuff we actually buy? We’ve compiled a directory of awful items that continue to earn millions in revenue despite widespread consumer rejection.

In this instance, one Reddit member named @A Flyingsquid wanted to know, “what’s that one product that’s fully worth your money?” so he asked the internet community for recommendations.

More than 57,000 people voted on the question in which respondents described numerous home products, clothing, shoes, and other items that make people’s lives easier and more comfortable. Many reviewers agreed that it is best to spend more money upfront to ensure that you have a high-quality product that will last you a long time, rather than skimping and replacing it twice.

Specifically, what do you feel is worthy of a higher price tag? Share your reactions and insights in the space provided below.

Three good pairs of scissors. One for clothing, one for paper, and one for the kitchen. This saves so much time and aggravation.

A toothbrush. It is literally life-saving and can prevent you a whole world of pain in both your body and wallet. Bonus points if you brush twice and day and floss.

A good power strip. Don’t buy the cheapest one. That’s how you burn down your house.

Socks. Despite the expense and the inconvenience of obtaining them, there is nothing that compares to the feeling of wearing warm, dry socks.

A good pair of jeans

One sharp, well-tailored suit for work and formal occasions. After that, you can just change up your shirt, trousers, and tie and you’ll still look impressive



Roomba. Haven’t swept in two years. 730 days my broom has not come from the side of the fridge. He probably misses me. I’m gonna go check up on him.



My bidet. Best $35 I’ve ever spent.
