Vlogging Workshop: Buyer’s Remorse

buyers remorse

2. Share a favorite January purchase.

I wouldn’t call it a favorite purchase. In fact, it’s quite the opposite…today I’m sharing a purchase that gave me instant buyer’s remorse. I hate that feeling of walking away with something in my bag that I know I might regret later. Or even worse, getting red faced at the cash register when I realize the product is more expensive than I thought it was.
