    Do you ever feel the sense of regret after making a purchase?

    That is to say, do you ever suffer from buyer's remorse?

    Not a lot, but sometimes.  I tend to heavily research large purchases before making them, but there have been some smaller things that I have bought "spur of the moment" and have later wonder if it was really a good idea. 

    Or maybe thought of something that I would have rather spent the money on.

    Most people do sooner or later otherwise there wouldn't be so many workout machines doubling as coat racks.

    Yes - quite often. Not on really big purchases but I do tend to end up buying things that never get used.

    I always suffer from buyers remorse even on the simplest of things such as takeaways. Basically because I know the money could be better spent on other things or saved up. I think i'll make a Hub about buyer's remorse at some point, great subject to talk about.

    Sometimes. I am pretty good about only buying things that are a great bargain, but once in a great while I will splurge. Those splurges are what make me go return or regret buying whatever it was. I am a firm believer for the mist part that anything you want to buy, you can get it cheaper, just takes a little work.

    Oh absolutely, but not too often--and I usually try and return it and get my money back.
