    My last "impulse buy" was on my home tonight and after a hard a553d day, I wanted beer. So I bought beer and am now posting.

    Everything I buy is via impulse. From food & clothing to furnature and housewares. The only things I have ever bought that wasn't, that I can think of, was my bed, current shoes(read: finaly ordered them online after looking for them in stores for over 8 years), car and PC. All of those things I did research on and got what I felt was what I needed. My car however turned into a POS but that is an other topic altogether. :)

    No more impulse buys for me, I actually like to research before I buy.

    Bought a 22" LCD once on an impulse buy on boxing day (yes, I was feeling daring that day and ventured out into the big box retail stores to see if there were any deals to be had...lol).

    It was 12hrs old, they didn't have time to install the winch let alone have one in stock.

    brush guards, and rock sliders are coming in today, winch is still a week out.

    My last major impulse buy was a Mossberg 500 Persuader 12 Ga. shotgun. No regrets about that purchase anyway.

    Not much, was just a little rover. It's in pieces now.
    It was essentially an overpriced RC toy.

    doug: YES! thats what i thought immediately as well

    i just had a bag of those :>


    so uh on topic, my last impulse purchases were.. well for starters, this watch.. came back in stock after literally years in the watch museum. i had to buy it.. and then it came from a warehouse in singapore in a day and a half! then today i bought an everglide keyboard that is on sale at gogamer, and a pet water fountain w/ a tiny pump inside. my cat just had a very severe uti that almost blocked him up, so the vet said he needs to stay hydrated D:

    oh and a bag of crap from woot (nabbed it tonight booya!), and a doctor doom tshirt. before that, it was a HAF932 that went on sale, and when i bought that i redid my watercooling loop to fit the new case. new bay res and everything! i dont really ever make impulse purchases under normal conditions, but my gf and i broke up awhile ago, and the money i used to spend on her is now being spent on me instead. lol. so i dont really have to "do anything about it"
