Default Worst purchase you've ever made

You know, that something you bought that you thought was a good idea and realized you wasted money. What was it?

Mine. Piece of junk



And, I know I'll get flamed for this, but...



Not a good vehicle at all

Probably my house. Knowingly overpaid because of the market. Then the economy tanked and houses aren't selling in our neighborhood now. We don't owe more than it's worth anymore, but we'll still probably lose money on it when we want/need to move.

A swimming pool is something you THINK you want. It is simply a part time job that you have to do every day. Opening in the spring and then winterizing and closing in the fall is a real bit*h. The chemicals are expensive, and it's always needing something like a cover, liner, pump, etc. Leaves will float a half mile to find your pool. Oh, it is hard to beat on a hot summer day, still glad ours is GONE.

Easy. A 2003 Saab 9.5, also while I was into trading cars got a 2005 Saab convertible. Trust me, no matter how tempted you may get, never ever ever ever ever buy a Saab.

My first two years of college.
Went to Anderson University before transferring in to USC.
Thought I needed to be at a small school for four years, but should've just gone to tech school the first two years...would've saved a LOAD of cash.

Default Re: Worst purchase you've ever made

I don't have any big purchases like you guys such as cars and houses and rings. I'd say, financially, the dumbest thing i've bought would be any video game or my cell phone. Considering you can always get a cell phone for free(even though it might not be the newest and most flashy) there is really no reason to buy one. and video games depreciate so much by just opening them.
