For me its been that I once paid for a skip to come outside my house and in it I junked all the stuff I couldnt be bothered to freecycle/ebay/charity shop.

Im my defence, this was about 6 years ago, well before I began my dfw journey (which is going fine, will be debt free in less than 3 years)

This is the one thing that rankles. How could I have been so stupid?

What's yours?

    Spent £40 on an online casino when I was absolutely desparate to meet all my CC payments thinking that I might be lucky. Lost it in about 10 minutes and felt bad for days afterwards that I had been so stupid:o
  • I once bought a painting in a gallery for £800...I wish I had that money today. It now hangs in my spare room as every time I look at it I feel stupid for getting carried away like that! :o

    Mine was a car on finance/lease. Paid a £3k deposit, then leased it for 36 months at £466 per month then handed it back at the end as the balloon payment was identical to what the car was worth! So paid about £20k and had no car at the end. What a d!ck.

    I will NEVER EVER make a mistake like that again and anyone on here considering such a thing should take this as a warning - you WILL regret taking out finance on a 'fancy' car.
