What Was The Smartest Purchase You Ever Made?

Last week, we asked you to reveal those moments when realized you’d been making a big mistake as a consumer. Today, we want to lighten it up and talk about those times that make you most proud.

Maybe you’re like me and it’s that cast iron skillet you’ve had for over 20 years, and which just gets better with use (and proper care, of course). Or perhaps it’s the car that’s seen you through two marriages, four jobs and five presidents?

And then there are those things that might have cost a pretty penny but were well worth the expense. After all, in some cases you do get what you pay for.

So share your stories with the room about those purchases that have made you most proud.
