Its been a month or two since the last time I went to mall for shopping. I'm missing it. I want new pants and shoes and dress etc. Omg, I'm really such a shopaholic. Though some of the things I bought are still in my drawers, just stocked there. But, I can't help this feeling. I stopped my addiction on shop online because of my very busy schedule. And because of that my eagerness to go to mall is getting bigger and bigger. I sometimes daydream even when I'm at class or at work. Thinking of what to buy or what to do at mall . :'( Do u think is it a good idea to go to mall today? and fulfill the needs of my body? Oh I should say wants... hmmm..

Hi there! As a woman, I cannot blame you, LOL!! And it is even harder, now that online stores are selling good stuffs! Sometimes, it is very irritating when I see this 'SALE' word everywhere, online or in store. Especially, when we have this sale season between mid June through mid July!! Same as you, I also have some clothes or pants that were just stocked in my drawers, and I feel really bad. My advice for you is that, you might want to get rid of your old clothes, etc. first (ones that you feel you do not want to wear/use anymore). You might want to sell it online as secondhand items, and will get some money for that, and of course, a space in your drawers. Also, keep trying to be busy, this will help your eagerness in shopping :D

I think you should go shop when you feel like you deserve it. Think of shopping as a reward. Maybe you can have a specific goal in mind, like school-related. Then once achieved, you can reward yourself with a top or dress. Then it will make you feel good and not guilty. I do that when I was in college. Haha.

well, you should be more concerned with your needs than wants. can you really afford to go shopping without using a credit card? so many live believing that credit cards are just an extension of their income.

I am not a shopping nut... but lately I am really wanting to shop! Money is tight and since that is all I have ever known...I am not a shopped other than when necessary. And I hate shopping without money as I will ALWAYS find the thing that I have been dieing for on sale...and no money! But lately...I need some new clothes. I have just found a store called "Fashion Bug" and they have the best clothes, best prices ever! They are a store that carries upper sizes...that size between the XL in women's and 1X..it is called 0X size. Just a little bigger in the chest area, but no where else! I just cashed in my points at my online place I earn and got a $50 gift card to the store...joined their facebook page.. and found out they are closing the chain by end of this year!!! But that is my luck. I always find great things..just as they are fizzling out! But their sales are great and I just need to get over there. With this heat..triple digits.. I just don't have the will to get out in it tho! I am hoping that on Monday I will go.. I hate going to any store on the weekends as they are all so crowded (I am in a smaller town, limited stores!) I haven't gotten the gift card yet, but will go anyway as the sales are so good.

I always miss going shopping because of the fact that I like to buy myself new things and I also like to see the things that I would like to buy for myself the next time that I get paid. I also think that you should go shopping only if you have the money to be able to afford the things that you're buying, as you might find that you are not able to have the money that you need for the rest of the month before you get paid again. One of the best things that you can do is make sure that you budget, and then shopping for things with your spare money can be really fun.

Hi, wow a lots of stuff! cool. Honestly speaking if you don't need one, don't buy it unless you need the dress or shoes on some occasions or special event. As you were saying, you still have the stuffs stocked. Come on and get that stuffs, use it. Dear, just think over, a million times before you do something that you are not so sure. Instead, make your self busy like blogging, surfing the net, cooking or buy some thing that you think is useful to you. But still it is all up to you because that is makes you happy. It is not bad to go on shopping but always remember to use it wisely and carefully.

hi zaga. For me it is okay that you went to the mall. You can't work all day. You have to enjoy life too. I miss shopping too. I haven't shopped in a while. I think that it is good that you want to save and you want to control yourself. But I hope you still remember yourself; remember that you need to have fun too! happy mylotting.

you still have the items stocked in your cabinet? wow, can you give thus unwanted stuff to me? haha... well, think it over and over again. is it really important to why you need to shop or just to satisfy your vice? it is you alone who can answer that. but well, its your leisure to be happy. if you can afford, then go. just spend wisely because lots of people out there who have nothing to eat. good day to you.
