Should I install an CGCI outlet in the wall before replacing

Should I install an CGCI outlet in the wall before replacing the GFI breaker ($55.00 ) to stop the breaker from kicking off when my wife turns " off " the fan she plugs in while getting ready in the morning ?

Hi, I'm Mike and I'll be glad to assist you. I prefer GFCI receptacles because with them it allow for a reset where they are in use rather than going to the panel for a reset. Also by using them is separates the function of over current and GFCI, so that when there is a trip at the breaker you know it was an overload and at the receptacle it was a fault to ground.
