I’m looking for a familiar saying that I can use for If you pay more money, you get more quality.

Because Google has been giving me the same result — that the meaning of the saying You get what you pay for is that if you pay less money, and that stuff got broken too soon, then you deserved it. The cheaper, the poorer in quality.

    It’s used for both. Because it’s the same principle. – Dan Bron Nov 29 '19 at 15:57
  • Alright. Thanks! Why not post it as answer? – Glenn Nov 29 '19 at 16:14
  • Because this is a simple matter of googling "You get what you pay for". ELU tries to maintain standards, and this includes closing questions where reasonable research has not been shown to be done, especially where a sensible search would readily provide the answer. – Edwin Ashworth Nov 29 '19 at 17:32

    To me, simply reversing the order conveys the "high quality" message. You pay for what you get. – MDHunter Nov 30 '19 at 16:52
