I am one of those people who usually spends more for higher quality when there is a choice. However, sometimes I knowingly buy something obviously cheap thinking I'll replace it soon with something better or, if cheap enough, the same thing (repeatedly.) Every now and then that cheap thing lasts. For example, when I moved once many years ago, the new place didn't have a gas hookup for the dryer, so I went out and bought the cheapest dryer I could find. My ex-wife is still using it and it works amazingly well.

I also have a plug in clock that tells time and has an alarm and that's it which I bought 30 years ago at college. I still use it.

What got this started, though, was taking my laundry down to the apartments laundry facility using a hamper with wheels. I figured the thing would last a few months or a year. It's now lasted three years and appears it will last another three.
