    I'm all for not buying stuff that'll end up on the landfill when it breaks. Stuff should a) not break easily and b) be fixable when it does.
    See.... this is why everyone should have at least one ISTP in their life. What other type would own a truck that could survive Armageddon?

    If I buy something I'm going to use a lot over time, I always save for a high quality product. Take a knife for example. I could buy one for $20 that isn't very sharp and will probably loose its blade quickly or I could get one that is $100 that is very sharp and will hold its blade. Of course I will buy the more expensive one. I could have five knives for the same price as one high quality knife but what is the point of owning five knives that make cutting a long annoying project? I'll save time with the high quality knife. It will allow me to to work better and will probably far outlast all five of the cheap knives.

    One thing that I notice is that I don't like to follow trends, or the "best new thing". I would rather buy a car that is more efficient on gas than a huge pointless SUV. Damn I never really saw the point of owning an SUV to begin with.

    I had to get one to be able to transport large paintings. Some paintings are as large as 5' x 3'! I really don't know how else I could transport something that large and keep it out of the elements in the process. The problem is, though, that I'm stuck driving a large vehicle that uses too much gas, when I'd much rather be zipping around in some manual-transmission sports car that gets better mileage!

    Well, when I was looking at cars for my son, there was a Honda (Accord or Civic) that allowed you to open the back of the trunk up into the passenger area. Maybe something like that could work!

    "ISTP lifestyles.... do you combine quality and frugalness?"

    Depends on what is needed and what is wanted.

    As far as stuff you want........If you know how to repair things and shop around, you can get more of what you want vs. buying only the best brand new. I have a truck and a econo car, both purchased used but dependable models to begin with. Paid cash, and low insurance cost too on used cars. This is only a good option if you can make repairs yourself. Works for me. Saves a lot $.
