Buyer’s remorse is my number one reason for being patient, and that patience has paid off more than a few times.

Conversely, much of my family is very impulsive. For example, the other day my wife and I went to a nursery to buy a few herbs and somehow ended up buying a whole big tree.

When we got home, I looked it up online and, guess what, it actually cost more than nearly every other comparable tree… Then we planted it without the proper materials and then my dog dug it up and destroyed it. Buyer’s remorse, it is the reason we haven’t even gone out to clean it up yet. Avoiding those terrible feelings is simple, a little research from knowledgeable sources (like you are doing now) and you will be golden.
