Money Expert Bobbi Rebell on the Best and Worst Purchases She’s Made
Everyone gets buyer’s remorse, even financial pros and celebrities. GOBankingRates’ new series explores the purchases these notable figures regret — and the best money they’ve ever spent. Today we’re featuring Bobbi Rebell, author of “Launching Financial Grownups” and personal finance expert at Tally.
My Best Purchase
I splurged on a very expensive Moncler coat. I had read a review of it in a magazine that went through the way the coats were made and why they were worth the high cost. I bought it in a dark purple color and loved it for about five years with many compliments. The best part: I re-sold it on The RealReal for almost as much as I paid, and in turn bought an updated style in black that I still have today!
My Worst Purchase
A Hamptons share right after I bought my apartment at age 23. I had equity in my new home and took out a home equity line of credit to pay for the Hamptons share — and all the nights out and expensive meals/cocktails/cute outfits that came with it. I didn’t want to ask my parents for help because I wanted to be independent, so I was independently in debt!
