Most ridiculous purchase?

Found 9th Aug 2010
I once bought a pair of socks for £21.

Seemed a good idea at the time but got a hole in them about 3 weeks in just like a pair of 50p socks would, only mine had the Vivienne Westwood Orb on them and were black and pink, now I don't care less what I wear.

Lesson learnt, although they were nice socks albeit not very durable.

What's your most ridiculous purchase?

You should cut your toe nails more often. the're probably like knives..

Clarins salon size (though still quite small!) of anti wrinkle cream..............£110 just checked and its 100ml lol and called Younger Longer Balm

Edit - actually would say the above hasnt been a ridiculous purchase as think its working!!

these are ridiculous purchases - lovely bling but hardly ever worn

mines probably an over-priced item of clothing, nothing springs to mind immediately but I know there must be some expensive bits that I've never really worn

When I was about 15 I spent about £170 on a pair of football boots with Nike ID. Lasted me about 1 season...

would have to be a watch-I have a serious weakness for them-drives the missus crazy! everytime amazon have a sale I buy a couple at least-totally pointless,as they sit in boxes unworn til the battery runs out.

any of the htc phones i have tried

the most stupid thing i have ever done is spend £40 on an armani dummy and bib for my first born. The bib was stained the first time he wore it and the dummy was lost after about a week. That is my most ridiculous purchase to date.

haha yes definitely!

Well i was bored one week and had a HMV gift voucher, everybody was saying that UEFA 2008 was a good game and worth buying, so i forked out the full £40.
Holy crap it wasn't even worth £1.
I've been having therapy ever since.

Agent Prov undies, £200 only to be torn off.......and it wasn't even worth it X)

I only buy what I am going to use.

If I haven't worn it or used it within 2 weeks of buying it.

Not outrageous at all imagine how bad it would have been if you hadn't been wearing them!

spent 1000 euros on a hooker a few years ago

A 3d camera whilst i was in japan a mere 350quid on release! could only afford the camera, so no special photo frame and the pics cost a bit to get printed as well! oh and a £150 hammock which i cant use as i live in a rented flat with nowhere to hang it.

I think I only mentioned it once before

A pair of Dolce & Gabbana jeans, I think they cost around £180 thought I would wear them on a night out clubbing, I ended up very drunk made a few trips to the ground, the next day I noticed I had oil or something all over them! was gutted never did get it out

I have a coat like that, except it was only about £50 and a sz10, i bought it when I was 15, and it was always 2 small, it was supposed to be an incentive to loose weight. pulled it out the loft earlier this year (9yrs ish later) and it fits (if a little big). so dont give up hope

or you could sell and buy more new shoes (thats what I wud do)
