13. Very good point about higher priced = better quality.

I have also seen some very expensive items that are trashy. You really do have to look at how things are made, what they are made out of, and how much more the price is than something comparable. And more importantly, do you really need it? That is where I usually end it. I will say that clothes are one of those really iffy items as to quality these days, no matter how much you pay.

I also get high quality items at thrift stores, because I can see how well they hold up over time. If they really look good there, I know it will hold up to whatever I throw at it.
