    eBay is too addictive. I find myself just bidding for things I think I might like, without too much thought about the repercussions of winning all the items (like a pair of All Saints boots the other day). Always within the last minute of the auction though. I can never see why people bid before the final minute; it helps separate your men from your women.

    @Jay (or anyone), regarding the Zara trousers, which of these would you say are better:

    I like the first ones, but the patterned seem detail puts me off: it looks like a French flag. I love the colour of both of them; it's just I want: something between white and true beige.

    I know what you mean about the French flag thing, but otherwise they look great. The second pair are lovely.

    I'm always in two minds with this. There's more chance of grabbing a bargain by diving in at the last minute, but if I really want something and know what I value it at I'll generally pop that bid on early. I hate that 'if I increase my bid by another 1 will I win it?' thing that usually happens in the last minute. Most of the time it results in me paying more for stuff than I really wanted to. The Tommy denim jacket that I bought today being a prime example. I was watching 5 jackets ending over the next few days, I have no idea why I let myself go over budget for that one.

    9 times out of 10, I can't stand people diving in at the last minute!!
    I just find it a bit of a harsh thing to do on some items, especially if its something someone else really wants and has been bidding on for ages.
    If its a spontaneous purchase that no one else has bid on, I do jump in at the end from time to time.
    But if I really want something I'll put a fairly high maxium bid on, just in case.

    Just took advantage of the 25% off and bought this:

    Navy Native Pattern Crew Neck T-shirt - New In - Burton

    Not sure if I've been brilliantly bold or a complete tit!
