Yesterday I did this: I left the office, hopped on the train and went straight to my local JB Hifi. They were having a sale, I wanted to buy stuff — I wasn't sure what kind of stuff. Just stuff. I waste so much money. So I guess my question is this — what things that you've bought on complete impulse do you regret purchasing the most?
Yesterday I was so proud of myself. Here is the list of things I picked up, fully intending to buy.
- Akira on Blu-ray - Tree of Life on Blu-ray - Rise of the Planet of the Apes on Blu-ray - A new Xbox 360 for some ungodly reason - An tablet of some kind - A Macbook Air for my wife - Various different video games
Yep, I was really just about to drop over $2000 I didn't really have on stuff I didn't really need. But then I had an epiphany: I was about to buy all these products just for the bloody sake of it. It wasn't out of need, want or even boredom, it was out of a primal desire to simply consume stuff.
I was so proud of myself. I walked out of the store with absolutely nothing. In saying that, I did waste a good hour of my life.
Anyway, my question is this: what is some of the most stupid things you've bought on impulse? Anyone suffer from massive buyer's regret?
