A poor man can afford only the very best.
Who else but the poor man needs one item to desperately last them a lifetime? Who else but the poor man needs one thing to do everything and more? Do you think the second-rate and knock-offs will stand up to this test of quality? Nope. What’ll most likely happen is that you’ll be forced to replace the second-rate items over and over and over again, costing you more money – money you don’t have.
Buy the very best – then buy nothing else. Your wallet will thank you.
