At Durability Matters, we research and recommend the most durable, rugged, and high-quality products for your everyday needs.
Simply buying an expensive or luxury product doesn’t always guarantee longevity. Durable or ‘buy it for life‘ products are, in our experience, mostly made by companies that pride themselves on quality. It’s who they are, and making durable products is at their core.
You’ve probably heard the term ‘consumerism.’ Wikipedia tells us that ‘Consumerism is a social and economic order that encourages the acquisition of goods and services in ever-increasing amounts.‘ Consumerism is spreading all over the world with the help of emotional and aggressive advertising because some companies want us to buy their stuff over and over. All of this has created planned obsolescence.
However, for the rational and smart consumer, this doesn’t make any sense.
We, as consumers, are much better off if we buy durable and quality products, which can often last us a lifetime and won’t fail in critical moments.
Purposefully buying well-made products has amazing benefits:
- It slows down consumerism.
- Honest and quality-focused companies thrive.
- We save money in the long run.
- We lower the pressure on natural resources and promote sustainability.
- We help to protect the environment.
There’s a very simple fact – if we don’t buy durable products, we’re actually hurting ourselves. The upfront costs of durable products are usually higher, which may be a hard pill to swallow, but the long-term benefits far outweigh the initial cost.
Here at Durability Matters, we like to find and review the most durable products.
We use our experience, research skills, and custom-built algorithms to find the best products out there. Our in-house developed research software is coupled with various APIs so that we can find products based on our predefined criteria. We look for various properties of products, scan user ratings, check comments and satisfaction, look into the company & brand reputation, and more.
Manually searching for the best products is an almost impossible task.
By using the latest technology, we can process and analyze large amounts of data. We also get relevant and reliable results to work with.
When we want to cover a topic that we’re not very familiar with, we’ll seek expert help so that our content remains accurate and reliable.
We also write about things that are close to our hearts. We are interested in
- how to make things last longer,
- how to make sound buying decisions,
- how to save money by buying quality items,
- how to live a sustainable lifestyle,
- and much, much more.
After all, buying smart is a form of a lifestyle. Our buying decisions have far-fetching consequences. Let’s start buying smarter together and make positive changes.
