Describe an item you bought but don't often use
You should say:
- When you bought it
- Where you bought it
- Why you bought it
- and explain why you don't often use it
Sadly, I have bought many things in my lifetime that I never ended up using, which now that I think about it makes me feel guilty. I will highlight one of these instances today. I remember I was dying to get an upscale (fancy) hair- straightener for my hair when I was in high school. So, I worked as hard as I could to save up money to finally be able to buy it. Looking back, I see that it was a complete waste of money.
I found it on an acclaimed website called Sedoo.com, where people had left positive comments about their satisfaction with the product. It was over $100, which was not easy task for a 16 year old working at a fast-food chain for minimum wage to save up. Even though I already had relatively straight hair, I wanted it to try to achieve that silky, perfectly straight hair that many girls in my high school had at the time. More specifically, I wanted to be like my cousin who achieved that flawless (perfect) hair with this straightener, as I always looked up to her (respected her; wanted to be like her).
To be surprise, this straightener fried and made my hair look frizzy (not smooth) right off the bat (immediately)! It sometimes even made it staticky (with static energy), which was not very attractive. Moreover, my hair is very thing, so I feel it made it look even thinner. Thinking back, I should have embraced my natural wave (naturally wavy hair), which gives my hair more volume (not flat) and body! All in all, I learned from this experience not to buy something just because everyone else has it.
