when one buys an item and feels regret about the purchase soon thereafter. while buyer's remorse is normally restricted to expensive purchases that have probably busted the buyer's budget, this sentiment can also occur when a person buys a totally useless and inappropriate item.
This is not to be confused with winner's curse.
Karl: Chris has a serious case of buyer's remorse coming up pretty soon.
Ryan: Really? What makes you say that?
Karl: He just bought a silly ass Dontrelle Marlins jersey just bc it costs $30. Wait until he realizes that instead of buying something that will only make him look stupid if he ever actually wears it, he could have just saved; that dude loves saving money.
