No one ever went broke underestimating the American public’s hunger to buy, buy, buy. How else can you explain things like Etsy, subscription boxes and the Apple Watch?

Often the product seemed like such a good idea at the time. If I had an ice-cream maker/bread machine/doughnut bakery, I would save so much money! Generally, though, such things get used once or twice and then end up at Goodwill.

Perhaps your buyer’s remorse sounds even more expensive:

An exercise bike and treadmill would keep me in shape all year long!

Hang gliding looks like fun!

A timeshare would be a great place for family reunions!

We can’t fix your previous shopping mistakes. However, we can help prevent additional buyer’s remorse — or at least up to 43 occasions of it. Read on, don’t buy and save yourself a lot of money.
