This Website Helps You Find Products That Last Forever

Some people like to shop for new things all the time, so they don’t mind if a pair of jeans rips just a year after purchasing. Other people hate having to replace items, however, and they would rather have something that’s good quality and lasts indefinitely.

If you’re in the latter camp, you’ll want to check out Buy Me Once, a website designed to help consumers find quality products that last — or in their words “that don’t break the bank, don’t break the planet… that don’t break at all!”


Buy Me Once chooses their products by looking at the following criteria:

“Will it last longer than other similar products?

Is the manufacturing ethical and, if possible, sustainable?

Can it be fixed easily? Or does it come with a great guarantee?

Does it provide value for money?

Is it lovely?”

The website includes products such as clothes, kitchenware, toys, bags accessories, tools, furniture and more. Their costs may seem a little higher, but are arguably more efficient in the long run, as you won’t need to keep replacing these quality goods. The website also has a page where they encourage consumers to report goods that break to put pressure on manufacturers to do better.


Sometimes, it really is all about quality over quantity, making this a website we can get on board with.
