My Best Purchase

When it comes to best and worst purchases, we’ve all done it. Sometimes something we think is important is a waste. A good question to ask yourself when debating a purchase is, “If no one sees it, do I still want it?” Meanwhile, there are a few things I have bought and haven’t had buyer’s guilt over. For example, things I use every day are what I consider a good investment. Some of my best purchases include a nice hair dryer, good makeup brushes and an extra-long phone charger.

My Worst Purchase

On the flip side, some of my worst purchases include expensive designer shoes, beauty product subscriptions and streaming services we don’t even watch.
