What Item Have You Bought, Used, and Immediately Gotten Rid Of?

There is no one that hasn't made an error in judgement!

 

Tell us about something you bought, used, and threw away as fast as you could?

 

My worst "train wreck" was one of those 3 tiered bathing suit tops!  Although being cold natured, I was miserable on vacation because those tops were SO hot!

 

I found an extra tonight and it went straight to the trash!!!!!Smiley Happy

We bought one of the inexpensive ourdoor rugs(mat) from QVC a couple of years ago. As soon as we started walking on it it started to shred. It was too much trouble to return- it just went into the trash.

I bought some concealer because it was on sale and I looked like a raccoon. 😂

I can't think of anything, except maybe some food items. After one taste, I threw it out,  especially foods that were too salty. I despise salty food.  Yuck!

I would have to say a food item, numerous food items!!!!!  Awhile ago I bought sugar free candy and tried a low fat ice cream.  The candy gave me stomach discomfort and the ice cream tasted like card board.  I threw both away after only eating a small amount,  it just wasn't worth it !

i would never throw something away that i could return for credit.  past the 30 days?  donation box.  I can't really think of anything, except perhaps lipsticks that came in a beauty configuration.

It’s usually a bra.

Just a few weeks ago we got disgusted with our Cable Bill that gets higher and higher. QVC (David) was presenting this indoor antenna box that you could get up to 65 channels..so they said. I fell for it and ordered 2. We got 0 channels. Then my son tried it at his house ..0 channels. I sent them back asap. What junk. They really did belong in the trash but were too expensive not to send back.

Skincare. I have very reactive, sensitive skin. It’s difficult to find products that don’t cause problems.
