EBPeters Shows Consumers that Modern Quality Furniture can be a Money-Saving Investment
In an effort to save money, and with fewer options for some to buy on credit, consumers are investing less in large ticket items, opting for cheaper replacements. EBPeters Modern Furniture (www.EBPeters.com) is offering a series of free tips to help consumers make better buying decisions not on what looks cheap now, but what will save them the most money over time.
Tulsa, OK – August 29, 2008 – The recent credit crunch may have made many consumers tighten their spending habits when it comes to big ticket purchases, but that may be costing them more. Online contemporary furniture retailer, EBPeters Modern Furniture, is releasing a series of free tips to help consumers better differentiate between large necessary and fringe purchases and to explain the often-overlooked real cost of “buying cheap.”
“When people are thinking about saving money, whether due to a slowing economy or just generally feeling strapped, they often only think about the immediate savings,” says Eric Peterson of EBPeters Modern Furniture. “What can be overlooked are the long-term savings consumers get out of high quality products that last for years, or even decades, without having to be replaced.”
EBPeters wants consumers to make smarter buying decisions for their long-term enjoyment and financial benefit by considering the following:
1. When money is tight, all big ticket items are not created equal. For example, a large expense that should be put off if possible is purchasing a new car (something that many consumers know they will end up replacing within a few years). On the other hand, if someone is having a baby, investing in baby furniture can’t be avoided. Even in the area of modern furniture and home décor, there are essentials and there are luxuries (such as contemporary bedroom sets and modern art pieces respectively).
2. Large purchases can either have investment value or immediate value – purchases worth making when funds are low are ones that offer both. For example, spending several thousand dollars on a distant family vacation may offer immediate value in a pleasant time, even if that family could have as much fun at a closer destination. However, for a consumer moving to a new city and having to furnish a home or apartment from scratch, furniture quality shouldn’t be sacrificed – investing in quality modern furniture from the start will give an immediate aesthetic and functional value on top of investment value through its durability and continued use over the years.
3. Cheap or poorly-constructed modern furniture can cost more than a higher-ticket item in the long run. For instance, it may sound appealing to spend less cash out of pocket now purchasing contemporary furniture from a discount store. If that furniture breaks in the next few months, more cash has to be spent to replace it. If the buyer again chooses a cheaply-made option, they may be replacing it yet again in the next few months to years. Those costs add up significantly over time as opposed to one-time investments in quality that will potentially last a lifetime.
4. High quality furniture and other quality high ticket purchases can do more than save the original buyer money in the long run. They can often be passed on from one generation to the next. “Think about your great grandmother’s beautiful old curio that’s been passed down in the family to your mother,” says Peterson. “When you buy furniture with the intent of having it last, you can pass along not only savings, but a piece of your life and style, to your family in the future. Someday that might be your modern dining set making a comeback with a younger generation.”
