Have you ever felt guilty for over spending? I am an impulsive buyer and it is one weakness I am trying to get rid of. One counter measure I applied for myself is cutting off my credit cards and whenever I shop, I would go on a budget and make sure I leave my ATM at home. I don't want to be in debt and with the financial crisis right now, I really have to spend my money wisely. But we cannot really get rid of our usual self very easily right? I just bought a pair of new sneakers today and yes, it is expensive. Though there are cheaper ones, I prefer this expensive one since it is my brand. Looking at them now, I know I was defeated of my resolve and I feel guilty. But I will never give up! I know I can change myself! How about you guys...do you love shopping? Do you over spent on your budget? How do you control your finances. Your responses will surely help me a lot Thanks!!!

Yes, I feel it before one year. I go to shop for buying only 1 shire but there I buy 2 shirt and 3 paints. And after that I have no money in my pocket.
