Have You Ever Had eBay Bidder's Remorse?

Have You Ever Had eBay Bidder's Remorse?

I recently asked if you'd ever had buyer's remorse over buying furniture. Unfortunately, most of you agreed you had, but there was one response that resonated with me in particular. CasaSugar Community member Sundown321 wrote, "I used to get buyer's remorse after eBay purchases. I would get caught up in the excitement of the bid and found myself overpaying for an antique piece of furniture. Later, I learned not to get caught up in that . . . pick a price and stick to it. Also, research what you are buying, shop around as much as possible. Find out the manufacturer of the furniture you are interested in and make sure you are getting the best deal possible. If you put the time and work into it you are less likely to regret your purchase!"

I don't know about you but I have definitely been there before! I actually still have silly things I've bought on eBay sitting unused in closets around my house. My solution, though, wasn't so much to pick a price and stick to it but to steer clear of eBay altogether. How about you? Have you fallen prey to the rush of eBay bidding?

Absolutely! I bought a seven hundred pound YSL downtown bag on ebay and now that I have the bag I'm not as over the moon as I thought I'd be. The hype of bidding and not letting anyone "get my bag" excited me but after it was all over and it was up to me to actually purchase the bag I felt a bit down. I try and use it as much as possible so I can get my moneys worth! have a look my blog: www.dionne-especiallyme.blogspot.com/

I once bid on something like 30-40 Sweet Valley High Books. Thank god I didn't win.

I used to get caught up in bidding like it's a contest and then I end up paying way more than I should have for an item just because I wanted to "win."
