Default Things where cheap is significantly worse

we never have new threads

as someone who hawks $1 garbage I've noticed there are some things that work at that price point and others that don't

over-the-counter medicine for example is basically the same

but ear buds are worthless at $1

What do you guys think can't cut it at a cheap price point?

Any major purchase like a computer, car, washing machine, or fridge.

Idk a cheap used car is a gamble

but if I didn't wreck mine, it'd still run great

never bought a washing machine or fridge

I'd agree on computer

If by cheap you mean dollar store, virtually none of that **** holds up to me. Something as simple as trash bags are ****ty if they cost a dollar. I just bought some plastic ice trays from for a buck not too long ago. How can you go wrong with ice trays, right? They're complete ****. Rather go to a family Dollar or a dollar general type store if I'm being cheap.

Definitely true but I feel like going used doesn't quite count.

I'd also say clothes with that same asterisk.

i think people tend to over spend on computers tbh

Depending on what you do with them of course. Finding a cheap refurbished PC online is not a bad option for some people.

If you're not gaming then you should just jump off a cliff already.
