All of these items have their place in our lives, either for necessity or for making life easier. However, these were purchase mistakes I made based on price, value or needs.
One day when I was younger I was walking around in the mall and saw some sunglasses I liked. I thought these sunglasses were the coolest thing ever. I went to pay for them and they rang up for $200. Yes, $200! But I was hit with the temporary insanity of impulse buying and I bought them. Maybe a few weeks later I accidentally sat on the sunglasses and broke them. I came back to reality and started to only buy sunglasses of a $5 max price.
A man should always have a few nice suits. I decided to get a $500 suit. The material was well made and I knew the suit would last a long time making me believe it was a good investment. The problem was that the suit had super heavy material that made it really hot and tiring to wear. I ended up using it one time.
Back when Universal Remotes were getting popular I bought one. Except, I bought a knockoff version of it. That was a mistake. The codes that remote had didn't match any of the devices I owned. It turned out not to be very universal, I should have bought the real thing.
This happened at a time when I didn't have a lot of space. I had went out and bought a weight training set, the whole home gym thing. Well, when you don't have the space you can't use the equipment. I ended up putting the stuff in storage and then I joined a gym.
Because of the $500 suit mistake I went in the complete opposite direction, to super cheap. There could be good cheap pants, but I haven't found them. I bought a pair of dress slacks for $8. I went to work and within two hours the the seams ripped from the crotch all the way up to the mid back pocket level. I always check the durability of the seams in the pants now.
I always compare and check the quality of products and services against the price and against competitors of similar products and services before I purchase.
