You know when you walk into the store for some make-up remover and leave with two mascaras, an axe, and a new puppy? We’re all guilty of going a little shopping crazy from time to time, some of us more than others. Here are fifteen Lebanese girls on the dumbest things they’ve ever bought.

“I once bought chocolates for my dog from Harrods in London; they cost around 100 pounds ($156.) Sadly that wasn’t the only time this [kind of thing] happened; I tend to buy him expensive toys and treats at least a couple of times a month.” – Rama, 23.

“I was traveling with a guy I kind of liked to New York and decided to upgrade my ticket to business class to impress him; it ended up costing me twice as much.” – Anonymous, 31.

“I have a thing for shoes, last month I bought a pair of $400 leopard heel boots that I never wore. I don’t know what I was thinking, I thought I looked so cool and rebellious at the store – haven’t worn them yet.” – Rita, 24.

“I waste my money on useless things. For example, I recently went into Starbucks and charged over $200 worth of mugs and thermoses on my credit card.” – Mona, 34.

“I get my nails done religiously every four days, it ends up costing me hundreds of dollars a month but it’s too late to turn back now!” – Lara, 25.

“I was starting to date a guy who loved whiskey, so I went out and bought six bottles of different whiskeys to impress him.” – Darine, 26.

“I bought a Nespresso machine for my house because it looks nice. I do not drink coffee.”
– Karla, 33.

“The dumbest thing I buy is probably music from iTunes. I know I can download it for free I just like the sound quality more and the way it organizes itself on my phone.” – Dana, 23.

“Where do I start? I bought coffee beans when I had no machine to grind them, and a very expensive pair of jeans that were two sizes too small because I was in Paris and felt the need to shop for something.” – Maya, 20.

“While on vacation, a salesman once convinced me to buy a bronze sculpture of a frog by telling me it would bring me luck. It was huge and very expensive and ended up breaking in cargo.”
– Amne, 26.

“I bought Tod’s moccasins for my baby brother when he was only a couple of months old; needless to say he outgrew them in like a week.” – Rhea, 19.

“I once spent $200 on perfumed oil in Egypt. The guy selling it convinced me that the ‘recipe’ belonged to Cleopatra and they got it from the pyramids.” – Anonymous, 25.

“I bought a Louis Vuitton bag when I first started university because I saw so many girls had them. I think I was broke around six months in advance, biggest mistake ever.” – Anonymous, 26.

“I spent $400 at Nike buying brand new workout gear thinking that it would motivate me to start going to the gym, it didn’t.” – Maya, 24.

“Really, really expensive lingerie that nobody ever ends up seeing.” – Anonymous, 29.
