    I am the worse for buying things I don't really need but always seem to want. At the time I think I can't live with out it and my life will be so much better for owning this.. Last purchase being walkie talkies that reach up to 10 Miles, I live in a city so in reality I get maybe a mile, and own a mobile phone so,

    Looking back I really had no need for these, they look cool and I can tap into local Mall security but other than winding them up not much use over all and probably $100 wasted.

    So what have you bought in the last few months that you later wonder why?

    Many many moons ago...I purchased some throwing knives. I had this strange fantasy about living in the foods lol. So glad none of that happened now.

    there were quite a few i guess, i can't remember everything i bought, but wooden sunglasses are high up on the list for sure lol

    lately i don't buy dumb stuff though, at least not that many, maybe clothes i don't really need, but that's it

    Haha I also done the walkie talkie thing - just because they are cool. Got bored of them within few weeks and sold them on ebay.

    Most useless thing I have ever bought though was a game for the playstation called irritating stick.

    If you bought an old car and managed a few years out of it.. how is that a dumb purchase?

    Anyways, my stupidest purchase probably has to be clothes (or something along the lines of that) - I'm still "young" and tried to keep up with the times for a bit.

    Now I just go to thrift stores and make my own style lol.

    Cause I sold a nice Buick I had that would have lasted a decade longer, I just wanted to be flashy, and it cost me some $$. My dad also had warned me not to get rid of the better car yet, but I was younger and dumb.

    Something like this (not the same brand but same concept) cause it was on sale :




    It's a pain in the ass to clean, i've used it maybe three times, two of those to show how it works to some friends.

    When I first started out I purchased 1,000,000 back links thinking it would rank my site fast, lol.
    I had to start over because it buried the site 100 feet deep. Glad that was a long time ago now.

    shoes for my cat. It didn't like it and started acting out so now I just keep the shoes on my dresser and sometimes show them to my cat to make it jolt out of the room.
