    I often have buyer's regret.  Sometimes it's small things, like a pair of $20 earrings that I don't really need.  Sometimes it's bigger things, like our house.  In retrospect, a house is a large responsibility and a lot of expenses that keep adding up.  If we had it to do over again, I'm not sure we would buy a house smile

      Interesting, most people seem to aspire to buying a house in the UK but I have found in my life that smaller is better than bigger. At least the payments stay the same on your own house,  unlike rent, so you may be grateful later that you did. Thanks

    I paid a large amount of money (for me, anyway) for a pair of boots to wear in the snow in NY, then moved to NC (somewhat unexpectedly) a month later. Whoops. They sure are pretty, though.

      I am sure they are!.  Lets hope you get a chance to use them again next year.

    A bag (of which I have more than enough). The color seemed to be perfect until I realised I bought it during the evening.

    I found out it didn't combine at all with any of my jackets. Now I'm looking for a friend who I could give this bag to as a gift. So far I haven't found anyone:-)

      A shame you could not return it to the store.  Perhaps you could e-bay it or use the Facebook classifieds to sell it in your area.   Thanks for the comment.

      E-bay sounds like a very good idea! The only thing is that it gives me such a thrill of joy when I see someone else happy with my bag, without asking anything in return:-) That's what friends are for:-)

      We all seem to do that at some time or other.  It goes out of date so quickly too. Thanks for the comment.
