I squeeze every penny and research the item for a while before buying. I go into stores, talk with sales associates, check out the items just to leave and buy it later online. If I felt I didn't like it, I could just return it and I shamelessly buy a lot of things as a sort of trial period. Games and movies are the only things I would not be able to return.

$60 dollars doesn't mean as much since graduating and getting a job but I could easily be let go in this early period so I am not splurging like a lot of my friends are.

Honestly, I was scouring the thread to make sure someone hadn't already said it, then you kind of took the food right out of my mouth with that comment.

Seriously though, I was like an abused woman believing things would get better if we had a baby. Left the store knowing that the money I just dropped would probably be better used towards counselling to get over her. Or paying someone to punch me in the face, really.

ouch if that happened in here :lol: good thing no one said their marriage either (takes lots of money to have kids and a family... not personal experience though :P)

got clothes that I realized weren't as good as I thought they were, and bad thing was that they were on clearance so there was no chance to return or refund. :picard: Oh well, at least somebody will have an extra free article of clothing to choose from to keep warm.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

2012, meet Matthew 24:36-47!

14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

You could avoid purchase mistakes by being like my brother-in-law who analyzes every purchase down to the penny and researches endlessly to the point where he ends up either never buying anything new or buying whatever the ratings say to buy regardless of whether its what he really wanted or not. Dude drives me crazy. He has a 6 year old phone and is constantly waiting for the next big thing to come out rather than buying whats best right now. Hes been doing this for over 3 years now. Currently waiting for the i5. But he wont get it cuzz Samsung or whoever will be close to their next whatever and he will keep waiting.

And I bet Skyrim regrets being purchased by you.
