Are You a Blind Follower of Brands?
They say that you should not be a follower of brands because, in the end, the coffin and the shroud have no brands at all. This was something philosophical, but in real life, are you a blind follower of brands?
I mean I have met people that would like to have branded clothes, branded shoes, accessories, gadgets, and everything else in their life from a particular brand.
Well, this is nothing wrong because branded items generally denote quality, and hence, people love to follow the products and services from a particular, reputed brand in their life.
However, problems occur when you become a blind follower of brands and would not like to even see unbranded products. I mean if do not like anything that does not have a brand tag, I think you are in some serious trouble. And generally, branded products cost much more than the normal, unbranded products, but they could last longer.
For once, I would agree that if you are about to buy something that takes a lot of money, it is better to invest in the most reputed brands. For instance, if you are about to buy a vehicle or a home appliance, going for a branded product is a better idea. However, if you are investing a lot of money on branded clothes that you hardly wear ever or shoes worth a fortune, which do not touch your shoes more than once a year, you are actually wasting your money.
For such things, you can always go for cheaper alternatives because you can get cheaper products which are good in quality as well.
Remember, if you have enough money, wasting it is very easy because there are so many branded things in the world that are ready to devour your money at the very instance when you turn towards them. However, it all depends on you whether you are good with less costly things without any brand or you always want a brand tag dangling with the products you buy.
