If you’ve been scoping PF blogs for a while, you’ve probably seen some posts realted to financial do overs. Ya know, a time in your life that you made a terrible financial decision and desperately wish you could rewrite the past. I thought today we could take a fun little twist on that topic and ask what would you financially unredo.
Yes I know, unredo is not a word. But I’m a Ninja, and one of the perks of being a ninja is this: Ninjas can do whatever the heck they want… including make up words, drink soda and eat pop rocks at the same time, and sleep with their eyes open. Let me define unredo for you.
Unredo –transitive verb- to not want to do over again (although common sense says you should)
Are you catching on yet? What is one particular financial decision you’ve made, that you know you should want to redo, but deep down inside you are kind of glad you made the “mistake”.
Here’s my financial unredo…
I’m really glad I only worked a few hours a week while I was in college. This was a terrible financial decision, because part-time campus jobs, don’t pay squat. Needless to say, I graduated with $28,000 in student loans. Financial wisdom (whatever that means) would say, go to a cheaper school or at least work full time to cover the bills. But if I could do it over again, I probably wouldn’t change a thing. Afterall, $28,000 isn’t that much to pay for four years of pure crazy awesome fun right!?
To see a second example of a financial unredo, you can check out my post about my favorite dumb but fun expense.
Now that you hopefully understand what I’m asking, I would be tickled with warm fuzzies (that sounded pretty gay) if you all share a financial unredo from your life. Did you buy a new car, realize it was kind of stupid, but like it too much to wish you could change the past? Whatever your unredo is, I want to hear it!
