Don't Go Cheap On...

Since going broke a few years ago, I've discovered there are some things you just can't buy on the cheap. You just have to pay full price.

1. Toilet paper - Use your imagination. It's the difference between touching a feather and sandpaper.

2. Spam - I think Spam is actually pretty good. Imitation Spam is what people think of when they think of Spam; ugly meat with an unfamiliar and creepy taste. As bad as you think real spam might taste, imitation spam tastes worse.

3. Pop-Tarts - There are imitation Pop-Tarts that are okay, but the kind they sell at 99-cent stores are downright nasty.

4. Pens - Even if you do manage to find that pack of two hundred pens for ninety-nine cents, one hundred and ninety-nine of them will run out of ink and stop working within ten seconds.

This list could be longer, but I'm tired.

I know what you mean man. First, Spam fried is good. Spam cold is too much to stomach. I tried Spam nachoes and that was the end of my Spam recipe marathon. Pens, yeah you get what you pay for. Toilet paper isn't a big deal for me as long as it does it's job.

I don't think this is the right order.
