Yesterday, we're at the mall and saw a lot of beautiful dresses. And since I will be attending wedding celebrations this month, I would like to buy a new dress. I really want to buy the dress but I was contemplating if I can get it cheaper at online shops. I was trying to remember if I saw the same dress online and has a cheaper price. So I let it go, still having lingering thoughts about the dress until we get home. Then today, upon sitting in front of the laptop, I checked my trusted online shops and saw that same dress and it has cheaper price! Winner yo! But at the end of the page, it has a red mark saying "out of stock". I can't get back to the wall-to-wall store anymore because I'll be spending much more instead of buying online. And yes, I can buy another dress but it wouldn't be the dress I feel in love with. I know it's a small opportunity but I still missed having something I want. I missed the opportunity that's within my reach, already almost in my hand. Would you like to share similar experiences? Thanks!

I have had these days as well. Never over a dress or anything so nice. I am always messing up my grocery shopping deals these days. It is very frustrating. I have missed out on plenty of deals with clothes that I wanted because I did not have the cash at the time of the sale. Such is life.

Ouch! If only you know that it will be out of stock on online store. But like they always say, regret is always at the end. Maybe, next time grab the opportunity, because opportunity knocks only once.

Sorry to know that you missed your favorite dress. But you can check from aliexpress.com where many lovely things from China are very gorgeous. I also have the same experience with you. While I liked some book very much, but I don't have enough money at that time, but there is none left after I came back for it.
