    $50 refurb BFG 1000w psu. I couldn't pass on the price. It will make a good back-up psu in a pinch.

    Practically everything I buy. I saved up a lot of money not long ago. Got bored and spent it all on clothes in a very short space of time. Now I never even wear most of them.

    such a long list. my recent was Stardock's Objectbar.
    My worst is a VR headset, the LCD is so crappy, its impossible to play any games on it.

    Actually, most everything i buy is an impulse

    why not buy yourself a ton of malt liquor or crack? that way, the same purchase is made, but you get something out of it :infinity:

    Sounds like most of the guy's on this forum are broke from all their impulsive purchases. I don't think I've ever bought anything more than a Mountain Dew on impulse in my life and I doubt I ever will either. :p

    The one and only impulse buy I've had.... assuming food and drinks don't count anyway..... is buying a shot station. Basically you hook a bottle of alcohol up to it and you could dispense it into shot glasses. I bought it about a year and a half ago and haven't even taken it out of the box. Only $30 or so so it could have been worse.
