‘I can’t believe I bought that…’

We’ve all done it.

It’s way past your bedtime. Maybe you find yourself shopping online and then you buy … THAT THING. You know, the one that makes you say, “I can’t believe I bought that.”

We’ve opened up our own museum of regret, and we want you to add yours. Check out our Tumblr at icantbelieveiboughtthat.tumblr.com. While you’re there, leave us a story and a picture of the purchase you regret most.

Each week, we’ll pick our favorite entry and feature it on our show.

To get the ball rolling, here’s mine:

It’s a lithograph … I think? A big canvas print of a panda, holding six shooters, on a rainbow backdrop.

It came from the internet … and there might have been some wine involved.

That’s all I’m sayin’.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
