What is the most useless thing you ever bought?

    Things bought in a spur of moment will either make us very happy or make us feel irritated. Yeah, it happens. Have you have purchased something, thinking how great it is? Then, you realise you never needed it in the 1st place. Have you ever bought anything that turned out to be completely useless?
    Let's have some fun! ☺

    I bought a juicer. Used it once. Too big to leave out so put it away and that's where it stayed. It is complicated to clean, uses a pile of fruit and veg for one glass full of juice and is so noisy it scares the dog! Should've read some reviews before purchasing. It has put me off kitchen gadgets for life, total waste of a big chunk of cash - and I hate wasting money ....

    Several times. When I was working I had money on hand all the time. And so, whenever I went to market I would get attracted to artificial necklaces and earrings by the roadside. I would buy them for my daughter without a second thought.
    I discovered later on that my daughter just kept them in the drawer as they did not go with any of her outfits and nor were they in sync with the ongoing fashion.

    You won't believe this . . . False EYEBROWS!

    My eyebrows are kind of sparse, so i couldn't wait to try on a pair.

    Turned out a useless buy that made me look so weird when i stuck them on!

          What's that?

    I guess it's not technically useless, but I have a bad habit of buying jackets that I never get the opportunity to wear because it's rarely cold enough for them in Southern Louisiana. And even on the one day every couple of months it is cold enough, I can only wear one at a time, yet I have a whole closet full.

      What are"cryptids"?

      1. SakinaNasir53 profile image98
        SakinaNasir53posted 18 months agoin reply to this

        "Cryptozoology is the study of creatures whose existence has yet to be—or else cannot entirely be—proved or disproved by science. These creatures, known collectively as cryptids, include examples like the Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, and the Himalayan Yeti, yet these famous cases are by no means the only ones on record."
