Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I personally would not want to quilt without my Tucker Rules from 180 design.
All of us have probably purchased a "what was I thinking" tool, book or fabric. Once a year, our quilt group has an exchange of these items which is a lot of fun.
What really bothers me is when I'm signed up for a class and there is a list of items that are required. I have the stupid "add-a-quarter" and the "purple thang" purchased for a paper-piecing class and they weren't even used in the class!
A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

My long arm table with a 9 in throat machine. It is useless and takes up all the room in my sewing room. Now I have to wait forever to afford at least an 18 in machine.
I've spend a chunk of money on magazines and books that I will probably never use for patterns, but I can't say they were a waste of money. I've gotten hours of pleasure looking thru them time and again.

I googled add-a-quarter and still have no clue what it does.....

And so does deposable ear plugs.
rulers, books, pounce
By the way I love my add a quarter ruler and do not like to paper piece without it. I have the purple thang too some where and agree what a waste.
