5 Things Worth Spending A Little Extra On…

We’re all for saving a quid where we can, but let’s be real: some corners are too painful to cut. Here’s the tea on where to flash a bit more cash, because, high-key, you’re worth it.

1. Bin Bags: The Heroes of Household Harmony

Ever done the bin bag ballet? You know, that dance you perform trying to tie up a bag that’s about to burst, only for it to split and spill last week’s spaghetti bolognese all over your kitchen floor. Skimp on bin bags, and you’re not throwing out rubbish; you’re inviting it back in. Splurge on something sturdy, and save yourself the cleanup (and the tears).  

2. Vacuum Cleaners: The Trusty Dirt-Busting Sidekick

The heavyweight champion of the clean corner: a decent vacuum cleaner. Settle for a feeble sucker, and you’ll be cursing crumbs forever. But invest in a real dust-buster and watch as your floors become so clean you could eat your dinner off them (though we’d still recommend a plate).   

3. Tin Openers: The Unsung Kitchen Heroes

Nothing tests your patience quite like a tin opener that can’t open a tin. It’s a simple tool with one job – yet it can become your biggest frustration. Spend a bit more, and get a can opener that finesses in the kitchen. Your beans deserve better, and so do you. 

4. Mattresses: Because Your Back’s Got Your Back

A cheap mattress is like a dodgy friend: it might seem supportive at first, but eventually, it’ll let you down, literally. You spend a third of your life asleep (or trying to be), so go extra on comfort. Invest in a good mattress, and drift off to dreamland on a cloud of comfort. Your back will thank you, and your future self will be too well-rested to hold a grudge.

5. Toilet Roll: A Roll by Any Other Name Just Isn’t as Sweet

Let’s talk about the roll that rules them all: toilet paper. Thin, scratchy, budget loo roll is a false economy. IYKYK. Frankly, you deserve a bit of luxury in your life. So splash out on the plush stuff. Your derrière will be eternally grateful, and bathroom breaks will feel less like a chore and more like a mini spa retreat.

Don’t be an eediat… life’s too short for subpar stuff. When it comes to these household heroes, it’s worth loosening the purse strings. After all, it’s the little luxuries that make the every day a bit more of a vibe.
