/r/BuyItForLifeSince we’re doing staplers: my grandmothers staple-less stapler in daily use since the 60s by 3 generations!
/r/BuyItForLife[Request] I’m sick of buying a new pair of shoes every 4-6 months. I walk/hike for ~5-7 miles every day for work. I have fairly wide feet and always seem to break through in the pinky toe area. Help!
/r/BuyItForLifeThese cords will outlive me. Carol 12/3 "Super Vu-Tron" SOOW, Crouse Hinds box with a Hubbell Kellems grip, Hubbell industrial receptacles and a Hubbell HBL5266 plug. Ive dragged these all over for many years and other than a little dirt they're just as nice as when they were new.
/r/BuyItForLifeMy Great Aunt Mitz’s Ma Bell rotary dial telephone with her original home phone number in the center. The bottom of the phone says “property of Mnt. States Tel. Co.” Saved it from my parents trash 20 some years ago and I still use it.
/r/BuyItForLifeMy mom has had this knife for 25+ years but doesn't recognize the brand. Any ideas?
/r/BuyItForLifeBlack and Decker Super Sawcat. Purchased by my father sometime in the 80s and used daily. I just replaced a few parts, regreased the gearbox and we're good to go. This thing is a tank.
/r/BuyItForLifeA stapler one of my coworkers has had since the 1970's
/r/BuyItForLifeEverybody swears by Texas Instruments but I love my Sharp calculator. 14 years of service and no sign of giving up any time soon.

/r/BuyItForLifeNuTone bathroom exhaust fan. Came with our house, must be from the 50s and still works fine. If this thing could talk.

/r/BuyItForLifeThese are build to be repaired forever
/r/BuyItForLifeI had trouble fitting inside/outside pictures together, but this thing is a BIFL legend! After living a full life, I found this old tackle/tool box in a dumpster at the waste dump by my cabin when I was a kid about 12 years ago. It still functions perfectly, i use it to store aquarium supplies.
/r/BuyItForLifeMany of the old 35mm SLR cameras (like this one from 1982) have been doing work for decades. They're cheap, durable, produce excellent photos, and they won't become obsolete as quickly as digital cameras.
/r/BuyItForLifeMy dad's leather punch from the 60s. Simple and still works perfectly.
/r/BuyItForLifeMy Pyrex Bowls
/r/BuyItForLifeMy dad has had this iron since he was in basic training in the Army. (1992)
