A survey of 2,000 Americans by "Slickdeals" looked at what things we think we can spend good money on and what things we can cut corners on. It's pretty interesting. When it comes to the things we consume everyday: It's OK to spend a little more on coffee, tooth paste and toilet paper. I would add dish soap to that list. It's Dawn or nothing for me. We can cut corners on hand soap, eating out and wine.
When it comes to clothes we don't mind saving a few bucks on casual shirts, jeans and dress pants. Spending money on nice shoes is OK. We don't like to cut corners on pet food either. I try to get my pets healthy food that they like to eat. Americans do put their pets above themselves when it comes to buying quality food.
Household items that made the list of things we will spend more money on include: beds, couches, T.V.'s and appliances.
The survey also looked at the price point we feel some things become expensive: pizza 20 bucks, steak dinner 34 bucks and a bottle of wine 31 bucks. I would never pay 43 bucks for a steak dinner!
Things we're getting ripped off on now include: college tuition, health insurance, concert and movie tickets.
