Quality Vs Quantity

When I was young , my mom always tries to buy the best things for us.  We may not have a lot of money but we wore the best things like ladybird undergarments which at that time were the best.  So I was taught from young that you don’t have to have a lot of things but just a few quality things.  And now , whenever I buy anything for home, the spouse or the kid , it has to be of quality , it doesn’t matter if things were cheap , it just had to be great quality .  And when I do get something , I would always tell the spouse that  these are great quality!  and it’s going to last for a long time or that it’s going to be worth the price we paid for .
