Am I the only one internet shopaholic? I love to shop almost everyday on the internet Im buying jewlery,clothes,shoes, hair supplies and even bodyworks. Im spending atleat $175 evrytime.I seriously need help lol! I am really big on sneakers such as all the new jordans, airforces and pastry's. I barley go to the mall or stores anymore. I live on ebay. I find myself buying things I dont even need because the price is good. I feel like I am so addicted to it because it is so convient. I do all my christmas shoppin on the internet maybe I need to slow down lol! Is this you?

it's easy nowadays to online shop. maybe you should slow down and if you have the time, try mall shopping instead. you can exercise your butt more rather than sitting in front of your computer. That way, it's also healthy for your body. haven't tried one yet though. I discourage myself not to because, you can see it but you can't feel the quality of the stuff you bought. I dont trust online shopping.

I'm a sucker for online sales, and I'm always buying or pre-ordering when I see something I want that won't be out for awhile. That way, when it is released, I'll have the money to pay for it. I'm working on a bunch of reviews right now so I can get extra money to pay for the stuff I've pre-ordered. it's keeping me very busy. But I love online shopping.

No I am not addicted to it but I have done it. Sometimes it is just easier to shop on line. There are a couple of things that I like that I can only find on line so that is one good reason for shopping on line. I do a lot of my Christmas shopping on line too it saves me a lot of driving around time, plus I use points sites like mypoints.com so I earn points while I am shopping that will help me pay for other things. But I only really shop on line maybe once a month and then at Christmas time. So I would not say I am really addicted to it.

I went through a faze of constant buying online but I've calmed down now. It is very convenient and I do enjoy searching for things but I try and only make a purchase when necessary. I really do like how if something isn't available in the shops it can sometimes be bought online, a nice little backup.

I'm a regular online shopper but I'm not addicted to it. Online shopping is much more convenient and cheaper compared with shopping in a mall. That's why many people now like to buy things online. I only buy things online when I really need it. Buying unnecessary things simply because of the low price is not a wise act. Small amount of money can be accumulated to a large amount before you ever realize it.

I was not always secure with online shopping. then something came along then I could get online at the best possible price. It was a gown for a pageant my teen daughter was in at the time. i have been buying things online ever since. Sometimes i think i do more shopping through the internet than i do in the stores. The convenience can be addictive.

No, and I can control now that Ebay sellers are harder to deal with now. They use "switch and bait" tactics, etc. After a while that gets to you and it is not fun.

I buy a few things on the internet but not alot. I stay away from buying clothes and I am afraid they won't fit properly and then I'd have to return them....that's one thing I really don't like to do! If it's for my crafts I order alot online...but I don't spend as much as you do!

No I shop sometimes but not that much. I try not to spend lots of money. I'm trying to save money to get out of debt. One day if when the bills are paid I will be able to spend lots of money on shopping.

Well, it sounds a bit much, to be honest, if you shop online every day. I shop online too, but not hardly as often. But I too, shop more online than in regular stores these days, but I make sure I don't spend too much by keeping track of every penny I spend.
