A "dumb" purchase that turned out great?

Have you ever bought something that you kinda thought was a waste of money, but actually became a game-changer?


For me, it was... a hand held vacuum!

When I plunked down for it, i halfway thought it would be a waste of money. Frivolous stuff.

But now that I own it? I use it ALL. THE. TIME.

Kitchen crumbs? BLAST em with the hand held.

Dog-fur tumble-weeds? SUCK em away baby.

I love my hand-held vacuum and I'm not ashamed to say it. Very glad I over-came the purchase shame.

Anybody else have a similar experience?
