    Mine was to use 15 hard-earned donuts for a Homer Buddha (hoping for a cool premium item like Bat Fruit!) and getting a... Mystery Box in it, in which I found... $250.

    I was gutted. I know it's a crap shoot but come on... already, each 5-day mystery box has had a red Newspaper Dispenser, every time for the last 6 boxes. Sigh.

    Today I wasn't concentrating, and clicked rush on a brown house. :x
    Other than that is I found out today my original Simpsons is again playable, after being locked out since early feb ... Thing is I have now progressed further in my new Springfield, have premium items/characters on my new Springfield but my old one has Barney which I can't get now unless I spend a fair chunk of donuts. Not to mention all the event things... Slightly annoying. :roll:

    After the X-Mas update I had about 60 donuts from the stockings. (Most I ever had)

    Spent them all on Buddhas and Mystery boxes.

    At least now my other stocking prize the Reindeer have a forest.

    Yeah stupidest thing I did was rushing a brown house, but that was when I started and I thought donuts were going to be more readily available.

    Placed my skyscraper in storage while rearranging my town and heard the "Cha-Ching" sound and had to buy it again. To top it off, when pulling items out of storage I couldn't understand why my Lard Lads was in the construction phase until I checked my doughnut count. Now I have three (one in storage). I shouldn't play this while taking medication since it gives me Dain Bramage!

    Early in the game before i knew doughnuts were the premium payments, i blew all my doughnuts on white fences..... My roomates dumbest "overlook" was that he never noticed that we he accidentally sped somthing up, he could cancel it if he was quick enough. As far as the weekly bonus boxes go, dont get us started. He has 32 fences and i have 48.

    For the first months I was playing i stupidly thought when the thing came up for income tax, Restaurants ETC. That you had to spend the donut on them. I did not realize that was a speed up like the other speed ups. So I spent umpteen donuts for nothing.

    The second stupid thing I did was coming here and telling. The amount of face palms I got was staggering!

    Starting this game. It takes up so much of my free time not to mention the aggravation when I get a glitch ( I've had the harp of death and Xp freeze).

    Yup, I remember seeing that post! Groaned right along with you, that's gotta be painful!

    My biggest was also beginning-of-game just not knowing stuff...thought that the Halloween update would actually end on Halloween (instead of a week later), so I rushed through tasks in order to get the Heck House facade in time. I had just started playing 2 weeks earlier and needed the church, soo...

    I was so mad when it ended Nov. 8!

    As many have mentioned - had no idea donuts were a premium charge currency and spent a good amount speeding things up early in the game. Also sped up a brown house by accident before I realized you had a few seconds to cancel. I don't count those things since they were more or less part of the learning curve of the game.

    Dumbest would probably be selling all my blue houses when I decided to use purple for farms. I should have just waited for more land and kept them. I hadn't even made back what I spent on them, so it was a total waste.

    Second would probably be buying the Leprechaun before looking into it. I expected the well to be a much bigger piece given the price. I still like having him around, but for 150 donuts I wish I chose something with more 'presence'.

    I would have to say speeding up tasks. They should have a confirm for any donuts spent.

    As for Homer Buddhas, buying them with my 90 extra donuts from the level up glitch was awesome. I even got Frinks Lab with one. Then when I got down to my last Buddha I got 150 more donuts! Then, instead of getting Krustylu with that I got more Buddhas, and got a bunch of crap. But it was all found donuts anyway. And I eventually got the studios anyway.
