Several years ago I spent $400 on a very small TV stand. It was a stupid purchase. I felt so guilty about it that I took it back.

There's no single one. But I've spent a lot of money on booze in my past that I probably shouldn't have.

A car. I felt forced into buying it by a family member and was not able to maintain the payments when I was kicked out of my house and lost my job so my brother took it over. Luckily my brother likes it a lot, he still uses it almost 8 years later.

basically every vehicle I've owned since my first one, especially the one brand new car I bought and sold a year later to a 10k+ loss.

circus peanuts. every damn time i see them they always look so delicious. and then on an impulse i buy them, hoping that i'll like them. and as soon as i take one bite i immediately hate them. idek why i impulse buy them about once a year, i throw them out after taking like one bite or give the rest away.
its the worst. they look like theyll taste delicious but they are not. :(

My husband looooves them. Even the smell puts me off. Stay away, just remember how not good they are!

I bought a futon because it was on sale and we had been wanting to get one so we'd have more space in the guest room (which we were converting into a baby room - wanted to put the queen sized bed that was in there away) - when it arrived I realized it isn't even as long as a twin sized bed. :-/ Returning it was not an option.

Well, I learned my lesson that I have to READ REVIEWS FIRST before making a purchase like that. Never again!

I do a lot of micro-transactions when I am depressed...so gaming on my phone can become very expensive; very quickly; with nothing to show for it.

I think the worst that I have done, has been $50. That was the worst, and I felt stupid, and upset.

I impulse-bought a new Coach bag this morning. I have like 15 of them. Whoops.
In college I was broke and bought a $300 Louis Vuitton bracelet which I lost at a frat party. That was a stupid fucking decision.

8 years ago, I bought a $200 dress that I never wore once. Whoever got it from Goodwill should be very happy! :(

do you mind if I ask why you ended up never wearing it? I mean, did you buy it for a special occasion that fell through or something?

I bought it because I thought it was really pretty, and it was on sale. The dress was something like $400 originally. I didn't wear it because it really didn't match my coloring, but I felt too guilty to return it. I just kept trying to rationalize my purchase. :/ Didn't help that back then I still trusted my mother on clothing shopping, but I've since learned that just because it looks nice on the rack doesn't mean it looks nice worn!

Last week I bought a vintage kimono at an estate sale. It's beautiful but it's also one more thing I'll never wear and can't resell that's now hanging in my small closet.

Ooh, you should get it framed and display it. Or on a mannequin.

I share a smallish studio with my fiance and cat. They would both flip out if I added a mannequin to our family!

It's kind of a toss up between books and Magic cards. And not because they are expensive, just that I buy so many of them. Or at least, I used to. Trying really hard not to now because.. unemployed.

Once you start, you just can't stop. For while last year, I was buying at least five packs a week. Plus more, if I was drafting. It was so out of control.

Magic is so expensive. :( I stopped because I couldn't afford it anymore.

It's not so bad if you have other people to play/trade with, but it's definitely an expensive hobby.

A tattoo.

I'd been thinking of getting this tattoo anyway, but the timing was not ideal. My friend was getting a new one and said "ooh ooh you should get that fish you want!!" And the other artist said he could do it in the time it took finish up my friend. I really honestly didn't have the money, but dammit I did it anyway. >.< Now I tell people my tattoo's name is "Bad Financial Decision."

Same... my tattoo. I didn't really have the money to spend on it, and it's badly done too.

I spend a ridiculous amount of money on alcohol when I should really be saving it. It's usually impulsive too, as in I just decide to go to the bar for one or two, see a few people I know there, and think, fuck it I'm getting hammered.
