"100$ only" is what you friend tells you! the price at which he got the same lamp as yours! whats the reactions do you feel Stupid! that you got the same stuff for 125$. When you speak with your mom over the phone she tells you the same carpet that you got for 1000$ a week back is now selling at 900$. Do you feel like kicking your self! i do sometimes it happens to me all the time. Infact to every one of us. For most it matter for some it dont. but the fact that you paid more hurts you in some corner of your heart! I am asking because it happened with my sister the dress that she got it yesterday for 118$ i got the same dress today for 125$. Well i was furious how could it happen. I sometime feel i am DUMB! but you know there is a sense of proudiness also... I paid MORE !! money really doesnt matter to me! which kind of person are you. I am honestly a mix of both what about you!....

I think jelousy is not good for anyone. What do you gain by jelousy? Why not rejoice that your friend succeeded instead? It happens to me a lot - I buy something, and the next month, it is on sale for 30-50% off. So what? I bought it because I needed it and I had it first... Eventualy, almost everything is getting cheaper, so if I wait until the price would be very low, I won't enjoy anything.

I am going to have to say that I do not get jealous at all and I will explain why. I live on a rather tight budget so when I am planning on buying something I do my research on what store, or catalog I can get what I am looking for the best price. There have been a few times when I see something that a friend has found for a great price but I can not say that I have ever gotten jealous or even a bit miffed that they paid a few dollars less then I did. I will however ask them where they found that item and keep that store in mind the next time I am looking.

Lol, interesting question. Not exactly jealous I suppose, but probably a bit sore. After all, I will likely be scolding myself. How stupid of me! :P
