Know Your Brands
Some brands have a better reputation than others, and some brands just aren't made the way they used to be. If you keep track of what brands you've purchased in the past and how long they lasted you'll have a good idea of which brands to purchase in the future. You'll also start to see a pattern if the quality of a brand is going down. You can track brand information, purchase dates, and more in your Stockpile records. This will give you a clear picture of how often items need to be replaced and what it costs you each time.
Many companies count on consumers not using their warranties. Often by the time a product fails the buyer has forgotten all about the guarantee and how to file a claim for coverage. Don't replace a product that was still under warranty. If you track this valuable information in your item records you'll easily be able to see if a product is still covered and you'll have all the details that you need to file for repair or replacement.
How Many, How Much
To really know whether or not you're getting your money's worth out of products you need to know how much you paid for it and how many uses you got out of it. That can be hard to keep track of. If you create an item record when a product is new you'll be able to estimate with a certain degree of accuracy how many times you used it before it started giving you trouble. For instance, you may use a blow dryer seven days a week, but only use your iron once a month. By knowing the date you began using the product you can come very close to determining how much use you got out of it before you started looking for a replacement. This can be a great way to determine whether or not you got your money's worth out of the purchase.
