C'mon, we've all done it...gone out and returned with an outrageous and totally unplanned purchase! Mine has to be when I went out to get some touch up paint, and ended up buying a whole car! LMP is not exempt either..in addition to the random purchase of endless handbags and shoes too high to ever be practical (lol), I came home one evening and was told that meals out, pubs, etc etc were going to be off for a while as herself had been at a garden centre and ended up buying a hot tub!!!!

What about other FC members? What have you been and bought on pure impulse and got into trouble for? Whistle

It's plastic kits every time. The loft just gets filled-up more and more so it looks like a toy shop up there! Laughing

You and me both, except I'm filling a shed slowly!

My first DSLR was an impulse buy as well really - although since then I've thought about it a bit more carefully Impulse Purchases - what are yours? 333264

Radio controlled Spitfire too!!

And I too went out to buy a second hand car and came home with a new one (wasn't even a clever sales man either)

But by far the worse , I paid off my mortgage completely when I went in to see about upping my payments so that it could be paid off a lot quicker, but boy oh boy was it paid off a lot quicker!!

(Please nobody come near me with a boat and trailer for sale !!!)

About this time last year it was Fireworks, I got a little carried away.

I was intending spending £50.00 or so, I ended up spending £250.00

Still got about half left for this year, I've yet to raise the subject with Mrs SJNovis, but I think I might need some more rockets though!
