Wastes of Money / Buyer's Remorse

How much was it you dufus.

Bought a badminton racquet recently, not sure I’ll ever use it

Had to stop myself doing this in IKEA on Saturday. Like, sure, it’s only a couple of quid, but when am I ever going to use a shit badminton kit?

i like a good hat (not in a xylo sense, sorry @xylo)

got a load of norse projects beanies for winter and a few baseball caps for summer, think the key is muted colours rather than screaming electric blue though

I’ll have you know it’s actually Honolulu Blue.

it was just the yellow waistcoat man - http://www.fancydressball.co.uk/big_images1/ringmaster-costume-fs3676-a.jpg

i presume your refusal to grow a curly moustache was what led to your dismissal in the end

french vanilla coffee, I bought it about a year or two ago. I’ve had it once. It was only about 2 squid though.

Actually, I’ve a kind of a cardigan thing, I wasn’t sure about it when I got and have never liked it really. I noticed after I got it home that carved into the buttons are the words “one true saxon” lol.

Far too much money for a TV. I am stuck on the carousel of wanting the newest 4K, HDR blah blah.

You read review websites and they say “don’t consider a TV unless it has this this and this. What, are you mad? Why would you buy that? It’ll be obsolete in 3 months!”

Where do you go from here?

@chris-budget ?

Stationary - posh notepads and pens and the like. Go absolutely weird over it all for some reason but it’s all so overpriced.

What do you write in your posh notebooks Ruffers?

e for envelope

I think maybe the most embarrassing/nerdiest thing is completely fictional international cricket scorecards with made up players that have rolling form and made up little story arcs going on


Are you a Paperchase fan at all Ruffles?

I’m not adverse, though mostly frequent independent wanky little art shops as you’d expect round here

bought a pair of average white Reeboks for £35 cos I don’t have any shoes that can withstand the rain at the moment. intended to buy a pair of decent trainers/boots later in the year when i have more money.

just seen some new waterproof/wintery Prestos for £100 and wish I’d just splashed out more money now in one go rather than buying 2 pairs of shoes and having one I don’t particularly want.

bought some red mullet last night, wasn’t cheap and i over cooked it, ragin.
