purchauses you've regret?

Here's another round of story time! This time, the subject is on purchauses you've regret: either you ended up having buyers remorse (maybe didn't like the item as much as you'd thought), or perhaps did what happened in my little story today and ended up buying something that you THOUGHT was a good deal at the time, just to find out that it either got reprinted, or MUCH cheaper later on, and so forth.


My story, is yet another Target one (yeah same Target from my last week's discussion). We all know how bad Jakks is with distributing, so lately I've been trying to grab what I can! With the first batch of Black and White plush, I ended up buying my Snivy, Tepig, and Sandile in Canada since they had alot, although twice the price. It wasn't until later that I found them in abundance (and not just Munnas and Pidoves...) in every store I went to! Still, it wasn't too bad a regret. I was glad I got them. However in my little story today, I am a little sad of what happened^^

So, a few weeks ago I decided to pick up the 3 pack of Jakks that had Minccino, Axew, and Snivy (although Snivy is a double for me). I figured I might as well for $10, especially since I haven't seen them available as the non-shooter thingies yet. Then last week I picked up a Pansage single since I finally came across them, and this costed $4 being a sale. And I was happy with that. Now today I go in to see if any plush has come in, to find another one of those "Target exclusive" 5-packs.... This one came with Minccino, Axew, Pansage, Pikachu (would be a double for me) and... Woobat who I haven't seen at the store yet! ....this was on sale for $11 :( This made me sad, especially because I sort of want Woobat too and well, it would've been a much better deal^^

That's the thing with me: if I decide to buy something, for any of my collections, I find something like THIS or some crazy sale/price drop soon after. If I DON'T decide to buy it, it ends up being the ONE thing I'll never find again or won't find till years later :/ That's why I've become more of an impulsive buyer over the years, but it's hard on a tiny budget^^ So, I try and pick and chose what I would want the most/regret not buying...



Alright, I'm sure you have some stories of regret! My only note on this is if it's a purchause from the community (like an "I didn't like it..." story or something) try and keep it confidental on who it was from/what it was. Just to be courteous^^
