You don't understand how sealed bidding systems work. Don't wait until the end of the auction or any of the timing crap.
Put the max amount you're willing to pay in your bid, and only make that 1 bid. The price of the item won't change to your max bid, it will change to be the price it takes to outbid the previous bidder. Other people make their bids, and your price increases up to your max bid.
If you are outbid by someone else, then that is above your max bid, so there is no reason to be upset, because it would have cost more than you would have been willing to pay anyway. If you get the item, then you are guaranteed to get it for below the most you are willing to pay for it, so there is no need to be upset.
If you don't know the maximum amount you are willing to pay for an item, then you need to do more research and soulsearching before placing a bid.
Clicking the bid button like a monkey is the completely wrong way to use the system. "Uh I'd pay $5, no wait $15, no $20, no now I want it I'll pay $25, actually $30 is good for me, $35, oh yeah $36.87 that's fine for me!" Completely idiotic.
