    "You don’t need the most expensive helmet, but you should pay what it takes to get something with a decent certification (SNELL, ECE, FIM) and not just DOT. Some technologies like MIPS are also well worth the extra spend." —u/Bicameral_vtec

    14. "A really good-quality winter coat or jacket. To me, it's definitely worth the investment if you live in a country that gets cold winters."

    "Here in Ireland, it doesn't snow much in winter due to us being a small island, but we get very cold winters and very wet ones, so you get really cold rain. Paying extra for a really good-quality, warm, and waterproof coat makes SUCH a difference if you're out and about a lot like I am. It pays for itself because it can last you years." —u/LasRua

    15. "Direct flights instead of cheaper ones with layovers, 'connections,' or 'stops.'"

    16. "A good plumber — water damage sucks."

    17. "Maple syrup."

    18. "Electronics. It's better to pay 50 more bucks than for it to break the next day."
