Your Shopping Weakness?

My newest PAIRS of Chuck Taylors... - I got the same design in TWO colors. Am I addicted to them or what?

I have to admit I blow a huge amount of money on shoes, particularly Havaianas flipflops and Chuck Taylor sneakers. It doesn't matter if I've got the same design in different colors, or if I've got more than 8 pairs of each. It just doesn't matter... So what's the one thing you can't seem to stop yourself from buying although you've told yourself time and time again that you 1.) don't need it and 2.) already have a closetfull of that same item at home? What's your mall-shopping weakness?

Lipstick and shoes...I simply cannot resist and what I buy depends on how much money I have on me at that time - I always have money for lipsticks and yes, I have a million of both...

I'm not big on the makeup because I dislike getting sticky faces (I live in a tropical country). My mom is addicted to buying lipsticks too! I believe she even has three pieces of the same MAC lipstick in the same shade.

Well, you can justify having duplicates by having one at every important location. One in your handbag, another on your vanity, another in the car or in a travel case. That way you'll always know you're ready for anything anywhere!

My shopping weakness is in the grocery store. I will buy stuff on sale because it is a good price even if I already have a ton of it at home. My pantry will overflow with a particular item that goes on sale and then I'll wonder why I have none of somethingelse. It is especially bad if I am hungry when I go shopping.

Do you also go around buying stuff with coupons? I wish there were coupon stores here in the Philippines, but the best we can do is buy wholesale goods at discounted and tax-free prices. And sales are highly addictive. I try and stop going to the mall when I know it's sale season (Thanksgiving weekend, Labor Day weekend, just after Christmas, and end of season sales) because I KNOW I'm never going to get out of there with nothing...
