Time to play that game again where I review my monthly credit card bill and pick one purchase. That I really. Should not. Have bought.
This month’s dishonorable mention goes to the $10.99 I spent getting my car washed and vacuumed. Yes, my mother was coming to town and I wanted her to think my car is always neat and tidy.
But making time to wash it myself at the drive-in car wash would have done the job just as nicely – and only cost $4. Last month’s regrettable credit card purchase was a USB postal scale that cost me $8.10. Readers had plenty of spending problems, too.
On a happier note, my credit card bill last month dropped significantly – a few hundred dollars. Was it tied to the self-induced public credit card bill flogging? Perhaps!!
What do you regret buying this month?
UPDATE: Christine regrets a sweet birthday purchase.
Oh boy! I’ve got a doozy! My daughter turned one year old this past weekend and we were having a SMALL party. Nothing fancy, just cake and appetizers. I was in a hurry and had heard about a great bakery in Canoga Park. I went in and spent $70 on a cake for a one year old. I must have been out of my mind. I could have gone to Costco and spent $16.99. ARGH!!! DUMB, DUMB, DUMB. The cake was good, but not THAT good! Lesson learned!
Mike has NO regrets. Kudos to you!
This is my favorite post of the week. Because it makes me look back on my week and go “what shouldn’t have I bought?” I did good this week! I only bought necessities! Go me!
