We Explain: Stop buying cheap items and go for the expensive ones (within reason)

We Explain: Stop buying cheap items and go for the expensive ones (within reason)

OK so this goes against everything we normally post about but give us two minutes to explain, so we’ve stopped buying cheap household items and now go with ones that often cost more in the short term but often will last much longer in the longrun.

A great example of this paying off:

“My parents paid £60 for a kitchen bin years ago, it seems crazy but it came with a 10-year warranty, the lid mechanism stopped flipping up fully after 7 years. I went on the website for them and ordered a new lid for FREE, they were just about to go and buy a new bin” – Will (10ways founder)

We now buy the majority of products from these companies, all of them are best in market with normally extended warranties above 12 months as standard or superior customer service:

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
