What have you bought that you wish you would have left sitting on the shelf at the store?

I'm reminded of this because I'm in the market for another bike headlight. The first one I bought at Wal-Mart wasn't bright enough to shed light on the front wheel.

My Timex GPS watch. Right after I bought it, I injured my back, then I got sick. I really don't use it as much as I would like.

The 100 Greatest Books Ever Written. I love them, they're gorgeous, but although I've read many of them at one time or another in my life, I've only read 18 of THOSE particular volumes of the books. They sit, gorgeous and uncracked, in my den bookcase, inviting, but there's never time!

In my case it was a pair of Asics that hosed my legs up.

Cheapest HID light on Performancebike is $300 Shocked. I've got a real light from an LBS but it wasn't that expensive.

Clothes. Always clothes. There are the jeans that I buy that 'I'll fit into those when I lose that extra 5 lbs' hasn't happened yet the shirt that I own in 3 colors but only wear the black one, and then God help my credit card when I go to anywhere like TJ Maxx or Marshalls, I left last weekend with a $198 Tahari silk blouse for only $29.99. And its gorgeous, I just have nothing that goes with it or any place to wear it. but its all such good deals! Confused

Oh, and a Camelbak too. It's just too hot to carry around on your back. It's easier to stop at the park and refill my water bottles that way.

I bought a reflective wristband, with a pocket in it at the Grandma's marathon expo. I thought it would be great, I could keep some gel in there, and wear it in the early morning hours for visibility.

Well, you can barely fit one gel pack in it, and, the thing literally soaks up sweat, and gets very uncomfortable on your wrist after a while.
