Buyer's Remorse + Monthly Must-Reads

Buyers Remorse - have you purchased anything recently that you wish you hadn't? What is it and why do you regret buying it?

This month's question is such a good one! Don't we all have those moments where you are so excited to buy something, or you buy something on impulse and just immediately regret afterwards? Those are the worst purchases. I hate when that happens and the guilt and disappointment that follows. Ugh.

I've been pretty good about buying items that are versatile in my closet, can be worn to work or out with my family and friends. However, remember those late night shopping sprees I've been on while nursing during the night? Well, a purchase bit me in the butt.

These earrings were added to my cart from Very Jane because I thought they'd be easy to wear and could be worn any day with just about any outfit. When I got them in, they looked really cheap. I usually don't go for gems that have that iridescent look to them, but the pictures of them alone and on the model's ear looked so good I just went for them. They're just not my style though. I was pretty disappointed in their quality and I haven't worn them and really don't ever plan to. I've been happy with all of my purchases from their site, so I consider this just a fluke.

Another regret purchase is the Moby Wrap. Well, I didn't purchase it, it was gifted to me from my baby shower and I was so freaking excited for it. I'm really interested in baby wearing and thought that this wrap would be the best option for us.Like I mentioned in my Baby Must-Haves for 3 Months, it's like rocket science trying to figure it out. I read and re-read the handout it comes with, watched several YouTube videos, and just couldn't get the hang of it. The baby stores should really offer a class on using it, no joke. I would have taken it in a heart beat. Instead, I was able to return it and bought the K'Tan and love it. It's super easy to use and can be used in several different ways. Ellie loves being wrapped in it and it's great to use when we're at the store or doing things around the house.

Have you had any buyer's remorse recently? How do you avoid it?

Also, if you have any pregnancy or post-partum questions for me, feel free to ask in this post and I'll be sharing my answers next week.
