Definitely clothes for when I lose a little more weight. Remember glitter jeans? I have a pair tucked away somewhere…
My most recent disaster was a Google Chromebook.
I’m glad you said this because ive considered them for my kid’s school work since eventually everyone will NEED their own. (:bawling2:) I was just concerned about running everything with different operating systems. DD uses
My husband calls them taxi shoes because I'm not walking in them. :lol:
:flail:Taxi shoes! I’m going to have to remember that!

Im trying to find non-athletic shoes to go with my jeans and nicer winter outfits. My sunday church flats haven’t gone well. At least I can add insoles to boots?
I've bought winter coats/jackets that I regret buying. I try them on in the store but when I wear a hoodie or heavy sweater underneath them they're too tight. If I buy a larger size and I'm not wearing a heavier layer then they look too big. :dunno: I guess I just need to buy two coats in two different sizes, lol. :lol:
I’ve done that one. Coats and button down shirts always look better in the store! :hmmm:
my closet is still my closet(my closet at my dads before we moved into our own place got taken over by her regret buys:lol:)
Growing up my poor cousin’s tiny bedroom had one wall that was 2 closets and my aunt kept HER stuff in there! The room was barely big enough for a twin bed, tall dresser and a little desk. There was no floor space. And this is why my cousin is a minimalist and loves getting rid if st

Having a boy and a girl; it is so different! Girls need different shoes for different outfits. They need different pants, skirts/dresses. My son? He needs 2-3 pairs of shoes counting flip flops. Dressing him up means a polo with his best jeans. Khakis and a button down for holiday but that annoys me because he’ll need shoes he wears twice. DD’s clothing is always more complicated before we even get to shoes.

It's not a physical object, but when I was babysitting for my friend last summer and my car was on the fritz, they suggested I go to a place out by them that they'd used before. They kept messing up and not fixing the problem well, I kept going back there even though it ended up being inconvenient, and I wish I'd taken my car someplace close to wear we live instead because even if I'd ended up out a couple thousand again, it would have been less stress (especially if a place had fixed it right the first time!)

I'll think about if there's anything else. That's just the first big one to pop to mind.

Girls need different shoes for different outfits.

I don't play the clothes/shoes/makeup game, although it took a fair number of years for me to be able to ignore the societal pressure for women to look/act a certain way. It stinks, and plenty of women hate it too (and some enjoy it, no hate here)! So no complaining from the dudes---they're (mostly) the ones expecting women to spend a ton of time and money on their appearance to be attractive to them anyway ;). So I regret anything I spent on that game before I gave up on it. Fortunately it wasn't much; I never did buy in fully.

I've used my laptop maybe 5 times, lol, so that wasn't really a wise buy. Idk if I totally regret it, since it seems like a good idea to have just in case.

I can't even count how much stuff I've gotten for the cats that they didn't like/use, haha. Spoiled rotten cats!

The cycle bike under my desk. Seems I just can't work/do internet stuff and cycle at the same time and if I don't, I'm sitting cycling looking at all the things I should be doing.
I tried putting it under the sewing desk instead, but I'm a bad enough sewer as it is.. ended up with very wobbly seams.

Also a machine that is meant to convert all your cassettes to computer audio files. It doesn't.

I always have this with expensive clothing. I've bought shirts for €20-30 before, and ended up barely wearing them. Sometimes because they were merch, and I felt embarrassed to openly show my interests. Sometimes because I was scared of ruining them. I'll just stick to cheap clothing!

I used mine to try and teach online over the weekend, and it was a nightmare.

C&P function works in a really difficult way, downloading files, opening zipped files, sharing files with students, even signing in and out of my different Skype accounts was just :argh::crash::censored::bawling2:

Save yourself the stress and get them something else.
