We all have things that we’ve bought that we look back on now and say, that was dumb. You started by spending good money on your hobbies. And then even obsessed over. So, What are the dumb money decisions you’ve made? Do you even still use them? Also, how can you prevent yourself now from making those kinds of decisions in the future?

Dumb Money Decisions You’ve Made: Confession Time…

This $1,000 Challenge is a confessional. KSL NewsRadio’s Dave Noriega dumped hundreds of dollars into art supplies when he went through a Bob Ross phase. And Dave ate it up! He just loved Bob Ross’ dulcet calming voice. Well, KSL NewsRadio host Debbie Dujanovic’s Beanie Baby collection might actually compete with Dave’s painting materials collection. Debbie has spent entire vacation going shopping for Beanie Babies. Seriously, entire days. Now both of them have all this stuff. Should they have just saved their money?

Dave and Debbie also talk about an app that pays you to study and go to class, and they can’t figure out the catch. Check it out for yourself at The only problem is that the University of Utah and BYU aren’t available, so you might want to sign up for the waitlist…
