Quality investments are almost always better in the long run than fast ones.
If you know that you’re living in a climate where annual winters are harsh, would it be better to buy a quality pair of durable leather gloves, or cotton-polyester gloves that form holes over time? On one hand you’ll wear the first option for several seasons, while the second option would likely only last a couple of months. The second option costs much less than the first one, and would be much more appealing to someone who is tight on budget or doesn’t know where to make lasting investments. After all, you are getting what you pay for.
