  • About 11 or 12 years ago when I first joined the Navy I somehow got sucked into one of those things where you buy a membership to some furniture club or something. I don't even know what it was called now. Anyway, it was like $1800 and they let me and my then boyfriend split it. Supposedly you would get really great deals on furniture. What was really idiotic of us was that we weren't even living in apartments. We lived in the barracks so it wasn't like we were buying furniture anytime soon.

  • I bought some "insurance" which required no credit or health check, you just paid a fee each month. What I didnt realize is it only took off a percentage of the bill, so technically I paid more since I also had to pay the monthly fee ontop of that. I had my wisdom teeth removed and it would have been cheaper to pay the doctor out of pocket right then instead of using the insurance.
