What’s your top BIFL purchase, that might not in itself has been all to frugal, but long term, will be?

After having 5-6 different office chairs over the last 10 years, none of which I liked. I went and bought a Herman Miller Aeron chair. It’s ridiculously expensive, but I’m so pleased with it and hope to keep it for well over 15-20 years. If that actually succeed, I will have spent less money one chairs than if I hadn’t bought it.

What similar items (cheap or expensive) do you feel the same about?

    Greenbell Nail Clippers. Freaking sharp as anything and they’ve been my goto for about 10 years. I got them the same time I got my safety razor which is a great, cheap, beard removal tool.

      +1 for safety razor. Bought a Merkur Future like 7-8 years ago with a bulk razor pack. I am just now starting to run low on the bulk blades I spent like $10 on at the time.

      Better shave too once you figure it out.
