Whirlpool tubs? Check. College? Check. Timeshares, expensive clothes, and watches? Check.

But a house isn’t one of them.

Wisebread offers some sage advice.

Once the newness wears off, our prized purchase sometimes becomes just another thing in the pile of stuff that occupies so much of the space in our lives. We begin to compare it to other things like it that we don't have. A faster sports car. A bigger jacuzzi. The latest cell phone upgrade. And just like that our big buy loses its luster.

Some items are prone to invoke buyer's remorse. Typically these items are just downright absurd, yet we've convinced ourselves that they're an important, practical, or smart purchase anyway. Thanks to the mistakes of thousands of consumers before us, we've been able to identify a few of them for you.
