I have to tell myself to be patient. It is too easy to give in to the temptation to just bid on ANYTHING. And NOW.
The result is often paying too much for an item you don't want, don't need, doesn't fit or doesn't suit you.
For example, this one looked great in the picture, but when I got it back, it just didn't suit me. This is something you can't really tell when buying clothes online, you just have to give it your best guess.
VERDICT - Win some, lose some!
However I learned from this experience and did a lot of "Watching" and a lot less "Bidding". Finally I found the perfect top, put a bid on at the right time (ie. there was no-one else bidding!) and won the top for 0.99c!!!
VERDICT - SUCCESS!!
