So what's your range?

When you're about to buy something, chances is you check out the price and put it somewhere along a scale that may range from cheap - good buy to expensive - is it really worth it .

Here are some of mine, it's funny how different some can be from others ( when $5 can be the high point ) depending on the category or even the store.

After making a bunch of these; I realized that it's really the different end points that I find interesting, the starting points in comparison seem to hold less meaning. End points simply represents the highest I will consider paying for an item whereas starting points may imply that anything under is a good find/cheap.
