Like how the apparels and food/health related items that have been covered in part 1, this post will hold information about some more things worth money that falls slightly under a different category.

Things Worth Money – The 2nd 10+2

11. Mattress / Pillows

For a comfortable and stress-free tomorrow at work or at home our body needs good sleep tonight. A good sleep would ensure that our circadian rhythm is stable. We do have some more factors as well that boosts proper sleep and that is where and why the Mattresses and Pillows pop-up among the things worth money.

Who would be interested in experiencing a backache and a neck pain every day? For sure, a bad quality mattress and pillows will pave a way for it starting from changing our posture, leading to disc slip/bulge and spondylitis. If we need to prevent ourselves from becoming a victim of these kinds of complaints, we have got only two options.

1. Buy a good quality mattress/pillows after doing proper research on the type and your budget.

2. Stick to the basics. Use a floor mat meant for sleeping. Lay down on the floor in case if you cannot handle the budget but do not go for a mattress without proper research just for the sake of saving a few thousands.

12. Energy Savers

The best thing which we can do for our kids and the younger generation is to save energy and also teach them how to do it. Starting with LED light bulbs there are a lot of innovations that have been done on finding an alternative source that will help us serve energy. Yes, some of the items are expensive when compared to the traditional items which have been in the market for a longer period. But, if we think a bit closer we can come to an understanding that the regular ones going forward will not only make us spend more money on them but also will make us spend more energy that needs to be preserved.

Choose wisely, forget about the money. Money is something that we can earn as far as we are in good health but not the natural resources and energy. Give priority to the energy savings.

Below are some of the stuff worth buying or considering with respect to energy saving.

– Go for LED bulbs in place of normal bulbs.

– Focus towards selecting electronic appliances based on the energy ratings.

– If you are a Farmer, Hats Off to you. Prefer moving to a Solar Power rather than using regular electricity. Most of the countries welcome that approach and they ensure that you get the required help towards the setup that too at a subsidised cost. A solar power setup is not only for the farmers but also for every other industry and for our own apartments too.

– Got a ceiling fan, check if you can buy the one that comes with a remote control. There are times when I had ignored turning off the fan just because I need to wake up from the couch and take a few steps to reach the switchboard.

– Choose bathroom faucets and similar things only based on their quality. A well-built item will stay for long and also help us in saving water.

– Think one more time before going for a water purifier. A purifier not only provides us with clean drinking water but also flushes out a reasonable amount of water into the drain during the purification process. Yes, that is something which we cannot avoid but, we can spend enough time to research on things like these while choosing a water purifier that would help us save water to some extent at least.

13. Second Opinions From Doctors

One of the thing that none of us should feel bad about spending money on, its worthy. A second opinion from a medical practitioner is a must especially when dealing with major illnesses. There is nothing wrong with going for that and it does not mean that we are ditching our family doctor. To err is human. If your laboratory tests do not look good or if you are suffering even after your test results showing normal, then it is time that you go for another test. Maybe you are absolutely healthy but still giving it a shot is worthy as it rules out any complaints and also gives us more assurance.

14. Regular Health Checkups

Meeting your family medic for a normal health check-up once a year at least is a must and the money you spend on it is is truly valuable. Remember the saying “Prevention Is Better Than Cure” always. Sometimes, with a regular health check-up, a medic can identify health issues in their early stages. Conditions like Cancer are known to be cured fully if diagnosed in the early stages.

15. Chairs And Foot Rest

Buying a good quality ergonomic chair and footrest sling will help a lot in maintaining our postures. They are really things worth money, especially while at work. Compromising on these things would just make us spend more money than the cost of the items. Hence, think again before you say No to a good and a comfortable chair or ignore asking for it at the office. The words Good and Expensive are very different, kindly note.

16. Mentor

To have a Mentor is a wonderful thing and it is becoming a must nowadays. Ask yourself this question.

How secure is your current job?

If you are 100 per cent sure that your job is secure then still consider having a good mentor as they are not just for guiding us in our careers but also help us in handling situations at our personal life.

A mentor-mentee relationship is something that goes for longer miles. Spending money on a professional who can mentor us is absolutely one among things worth money. Think of it as an investment because a good mentor can show us a lot many new ways and approaches that we never thought about when it comes to our professional and personal life.

17. Travel

For some people, Travelling is one kind of meditation. Spending money on travelling to new places comes with a lot of benefits. We can learn a lot of new things especially when we visit places which are of different cultures. Though I am saying this, I had myself ignored it many times just because of the budget crunches. Spending towards travel irrespective of whether it is a solo or group trip is not a waste. Instead, a thing worth money.

18. Education / Learning

We all strive hard to give good education to our kids. We know that their future depends on it. In this current world education/continuous learning is not only for our kids but for everyone.

Every one of us is replaceable. Irrespective of our profession, if we stop or don’t learn things that are known to be the future then we are placing ourselves in a spot from where it is going to be difficult to return.

Here is a quote from a Friedrich Nietzsche, a German Philosopher.

“The snake which cannot cast its skin has to die…”

Do you think that the quote above refers only the snake? If we stop learning and do not adapt to changes then there is nothing much we can look forward. Spending money on learning new things is good. Be it learning a new language, swimming or anything that makes you have an edge over the other.

19. Hard Cover Books

Ask any book lovers, they would say that they prefer hardcover books compared to a paperback. It is absolutely fine to buy a paperback book to read at first. But, if you are truly impressed with the book and want to own a copy of it in your personal library then go for a Hard Cover book.

Spending money on a hardcover book made of good quality paper and printing is, in fact, a kind of investment and they are absolutely one among things worth money.

We will not know how many times we would be referring to those books throughout our life. They not only give us a good feel to grab it and read but also stay with us for a longer period.

I am referring to reading books and acting upon what we read is an investment because as far as I know those who read more books and act accordingly belong to the 1 % group in the world.

20. Helmet

An important item that most of us fail to realize.

Is there anything that we do not know which will give me an option to reiterate its importance?

Most of the two-wheeler riders especially in India wear helmets only for the sake of traffic police. We most of the times do not give much importance to the helmets quality while buying instead focus on its looks and its cost.

Let us think about our Skull and not Style.

Let me convey here, always ensure that you buy a helmet that meets DOT/ECE/SNELL specifications.

Why not ISI rating?

DOT/ECE etc. are really good options when compared to ISI. Want to know why I prefer others when compared to ISI, try youtube.

Helmets are the ones that can save us at the time of a real-time crash. Not only our life but also our pockets. Consider buying a good quality helmet as an investment and it is truly among things worth money list.

21. Good Quality Tires

Just like the helmets mentioned above, good quality tires are a must and something that fall under things worth money category. Irrespective of what vehicle we drive/ride and geographical location where we reside, stretching a bit extra on buying this item is really a good investment.

22. Insurance

Not all Insurance policies are good. Not all the information that we hear from the agents are true. Yet, a good health insurance policy can be a great helping hands at the time of a need and that sole reason makes it imperative.

Insurance is a must buy things worth money without any buyers remorse but only after thorough research.

With this post, I had completed the top 22 stuff worth money out of 32. Stay tuned for the last 10 things worth money in part 3 shortly.
