Becki can’t say no to flowers:
I not only bought flowers I didn’t need, it is too cold to plant! I love pansies, and they were only 67 cents apiece, but now they will sit till it gets warmer, and then they will die when it’s hot…if only I had bought them last fall…It’s an addiction I have, I have to stay out of the nurseries!!!!! Someone please help!
ChrisM is kicking herself for paying shipping:
My 17 year old daughter wanted a pair of TOM’S shoes for her birthday in February, so I went on line, ordered them, paid for shipping. $17 for shipping–only to realize they came from Valencia and —we live in Sylmar.
Wish I’d looked into shipping fees first.
Tami regrets her hasty purchase:
Our microwave suddenly ceased to work after having it for about 6 years. We thought we couldn’t live without one, so we rushed out and bought a generic microwave oven at Target for $80. Fast forward to a week later and we noticed one for $20 at the local Goodwill shop. Goodwill stands behind their products and will refund purchases if you bring in the product/receipt, so by being hasty, we wasted $65. Next time we’ll comparison shop.
Blakely fell victim to a sale for something she doesn’t need:
I purchased a waffle iron at Kohl’s. It was only $25.00 with a $10.00 mail in rebate. I haven’t used it yet and I haven’t found anywhere to store it. It was something I wanted, but not something I needed.
