10 Purchases Women Confessed Were the Dumbest They Ever Made

Are you guilty of overspending on things you don't need? Are you constantly broke but with a closet full of clothes you've only worn once? Buyer's remorse is real, and these 10 confessions from women might make you feel less bad about that $30 takeout food you got yesterday.

1. The Perm Nightmare

You have heard of a bad hair day. Now, get ready for a bad hair year. Getting a perm is not child's play, and someone highlighted this reality by recounting how badly their hair got damaged after a $220 perm! 

Imagine paying such an insane amount only to be forced to shave your head in the end. One person advised going to a hairstylist who would first assess if the hair was healthy enough to withstand the perm. Otherwise, that money is going to waste. 

2. Juicing Your Wallet Dry

Impulse purchases plague us all, but this person broke the internet when they said they got a $400 juicer to make their problems go away. Spoiler alert: cucumber juice won't fix your depression.

3. The Glamour Tax

So many folks confessed to overspending on makeup thanks to impulsivity. We all know how perfectly adorned those eyeshadow palettes are, but that's precisely how they get you! One person recounted a horror story 6 years ago when they bought makeup worth 2 grand.

We all know that no one will ever use more than 2 lipsticks, but here we are. 

4. Trench Coat Tragedy

Ever thought of investing in a high-end clothing item, thinking it will last you for ages? Well, chances are you're not alone. Someone regretted buying a Burberry trench coat because it failed to be functional. It did not even do the one thing a coat is supposed to do: keep you warm. 

5. Way-UNFair Couches

We all know that online shopping is a gamble, but Wayfair furniture takes it to the next level. One user was in pain about how poor the quality was. Another person who bought a couch online discussed how the color was way off and assembling it was painful.

You can only invest in such a lightweight couch if you enjoy being catapulted if you sit on the edge. 

6. Swimsuits That Drown Your Wallet

We all know how drunk purchases turn out. Someone recalled spending $150 on a ridiculous bathing suiting only because the color seemed nice. Stopping at the mall when you're tipsy is probably not the best idea.

7. Dye Hard

Anyone who dyes their hair regularly also knows that a part of them dies each time they do so. If your hair grows out fast, you'll probably be in a salon every 6 weeks like this one user. And trust me, your natural hair is perhaps not even that bad. 

8. Mattress Distress

A bad mattress can break both your bank and back. One person shared how their expensive gel mattress started acting up 3 years later. They mentioned how their bodies were imprinted on the bed, almost like a chalk outline. This mattress might be a good choice only if you're a true crime fan.

9. Not-So-Cool Sculpting

Someone mentioned paying four grand for cool sculpting! And the worst part? It didn't even make a difference. Talk about disappointment.

10. Vintage Nightmares: The Car That'll Leave You Stranded

Having a dream car is okay as long as it remains a dream. One woman told us how she bought a three-decade-old vehicle only to find that it was beyond repair half the time. The maintenance cost was unreasonable.
