I am a shopping hoarder!

September 19, 2016 1:11am CST
To overcome my obsession of shopping, I need to admit my problem first right? But I really don't have a problem. When it comes to clothes, shoes, handbags (especially) - I would literally buy all the styles just in different colors! This past weekend, I bought two new purses which I really don't need them since I have a bunch I hardly wear as is. But over the weekend, I was able to sell a few items and hopefully I can sell some more to justify my new spendings! Do you have any problems you want to admit but you can't? Like being a shopping hoarder like me? And, I have an obsession with cute boxes or packaging too. You won't see me throw away cute little boxes. I am thankful to have apps like Poshmark and Mercari to re-sale my pre-loved/new items.

I discovered how we have something in common today (don't like cooking) and now I'm discovering something that we do not have in common - I hate shopping... especially shopping for shoes, clothes, and handbags...

Hahaha! I LOVE LOVE SHOPPING so much that the cashiers know me and want to request me as their client. So they could get commission.

@infatuatedbby You sound like my sister! I 'shop' at her wardrobe... She has everything I can imagine and I can take whatever I like for free... She likes it when I take stuff from her wardrobe so she has an excuse to shop for more...

@sishy7 If only my sister and I wore the same sizes. Then I'd have more reasons to shop

Shoes! I love shoes. I have too many shoes! Not enough places to store all those shoes. Fighting the impulse to buy more shoes is a struggle for me. I have shoes I have not worn, but are so pretty to look at. Dang. I need to gain more control.

@infatuatedbby Well, ever since I was in my teens, and even today, people would say and still say, "You have the best legs!" So, good legs should have tons of shoes!!! Now, if no one would have mentioned my one and only good feature in my opinion, I would not have so many darn shoes!!! You and I need more shoes!!!

I obsess over a few things, but I don't really hoard anything.

@infatuatedbby I bought some more mercury dimes from Amazon and that is about it. What brands are the two bags you bought?

@zarlamain Yay! More to your collection. Do they have any new $25 for $25 coins? I bought Michael Kors bags again. :)

I like shopping, but it's not handbags I have an obsession with it's headbands and bandannas. I'm pretty sure I might have a problem.

I like hair clips but I am not very good with doing hair. Wish I did though.

@infatuatedbby I'm not good with hair either, hence why I use a bandanna and a head band just to hold my hair back.

@polyxena Great idea. I use hair clips and clip in the center usually.

I used to buy a lot of clothes too, but now I seldom buy a new one, even shoes. I think the last time I bought a new shirt was last year.

Well, first off, I... (can't afford to buy lots of things). But I have a weakness for sales. When I see something is on 'sale' (not clothes or anything like that - my clothes are usually hand-me-downs, but consumable things I use like soap, shampoo, stuff like that), I feel the urge to buy it. I rationalize that I'm going to need to buy it sooner or later anyway, so why not buy them when they are a few pesos cheaper?

Thankfully, I don't suffer from the addiction of shopping, in fact, I hate shopping.

I am not really a shopping hoarder but I like shoes. I cannot resist when I see a nice pair of shoes. I also keep the cute little boxes, I love them.
