    I was wondering, especially for the members here on tighter budgets, how do you cope with poor purchases on non-returnable items?

    :Out of a $4500 purchase I lost about $250. Not bad actually.

    ???

    hopefully you got that TaT suit order you wanted in there somewhere?

    I recently ordered a large amount of clothes from Yahoo! Japan and MBOK, and while I am pretty happy with most of it, a few items didn't really work out -- namely some pants on which the inseams are too short.

    I was wondering, especially for the members here on tighter budgets, how do you cope with poor purchases on non-returnable items? I'm thinking of flipping them back onto YJ, but after fees and shipping to Japan I doubt it would be worth my time. I may just have to toss them, because having clothes I don't like laying around always feels like a huge burden.

    But yeah, I have depression and though I'm on medication for it I still tend to get irrationally upset about things. It's not so much the amount of money wasted. For me, it's the mere fact that something was a waste and I cannot think of a productive use for it.

    How do you cope?


    Craigslist or Ebay...

    I feel your pain brother. My recent purchase from JP doesn't fit and I'm trying to sell right now. The trouble of selling and re-ordering and waiting, etc., has gotten my panties in a major bunch![​IMG]

    SD 103's from Rakuten store Vari. I have Sammy S0500 in size 34, so I though 34 would work with these too. Not even close. But I really like em, so waiting to sell in order to re-order......

    i bought a pair of Dior jeans one size big last season, it was the last one left and i bought it anyway because hedi slimane was leaving and at that point didn't know if he was coming back.

    i cope by telling myself Kanye's are even baggier. i'm wearing them today actually and when i look in the mirror it doesn't look so bad over boots...

    moral of the story: If it don't fit, WILL IT TO FIT.
