Buyers Remorse

Does anyone else get this after they make a big purchase?

Dropped a good chunk on a tv set up and I hate the feeling I am having. Even though I looked up everything and got a very fair price.

Yes all the time I have that feeling, except on big TV purchases.

I look at it this way, I'd rather feel buyer's remorse than the feeling I get when I know I turned down a good deal. Now, if you know you got taken to the cleaners, that's different. If you do your homework and look at everything objectively, you should have no remorse.

I'll take it off your hands for say $200.00?

I get no remorse from spending money, I just dropped a grand at Nordstrom for a total of six pieces of clothing ffs. However I do get remorse when whatever I buy doesn't work as the salesman said it would. Hence anytime I buy from Verizon or Dell I have plenty of remorse.

Normally if I have buyer's remorse it can be cured by Penicillin.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
