High end stuff tends to be only slightly better, but cost way more.
In general I recommend getting "decent" quality stuff in between.
Of course there are exceptions but this is somewhat of a personal decision. I buy high end running shoes, and name brand ketkchup. I buy lots from the dollar store, but not food products, or much that I don't consider "single use".
You've really got to decide where you want your money spent.
Yeah, this post is a bit rambly, maybe when my writing gets better, I'll fix it up.
