Five words: because it was on sale.
Those five words can get me to part with my money faster than a hot knife through butter. Or a duck on a June bug. Or a, well, you get the idea. I didn’t really like the colors when I bought this BUT it was a great deal. Or was it?
If I’m not using it and it’s just taking up space in my yarn bins, it’s not really a great deal at all. I wasted money on something I didn’t really love or need.
This “mistake” happened 10 or so years ago and I’m not sucked in by that word that four-letter word “sale” like I used to be. If I don’t love it or need it, I don’t buy it. I do shop sales but it’s not the criteria to buy something.
It knits up great and I would use it if it were another color. The colors are pretty, just not right for me. It’s listed as trade or sell in my Ravelry yarn stash until I figure out what to do with it.
Has the word SALE ever caused you to buy something you didn’t need or love?
