For the past few weeks, I've been buying clothes which I don't even need. I was tempted that it is 50 to 70% off....I promise to myself not to buy anything anymore for 2 or 3 months or longer.....I need to stop! lol! Is there anything that you keep doing and half of your brain is against of it? or anything else you promise to yourself not to do for the moment?

There are more discount at this Christmas shopping season, so you will save more at this period! So I think it's better for shopping if you need it! It's a good chance! Recommand one site for others: www.egogoto.com. The seller is good service and offer good quality item! Hoping this help!

When did you resurface? I've not seen you in awhile! Mine is shopping as well. I keep telling myself "Oh well I need this or that." Honestly it's been coupons more then anything else!

Hi friend, so you are not interested in increasing your shopping, but your temptation don't allow you to keep up your promise.. We must control our temptations and follow good things. This kind of offers will be available in every year, so stop your shopping now and continue it in next year. I am not interested in unwanted shopping, so i don't buy things unnecessarily.

actually i buy a lot of clothes too that I think I don't need since shopping is my way to release my stress so for me i don't regret it because I only buy clothes if it is on sale.. but if you really don't wanna buy again or shop again find something else that will occupy your mind like reading books or playing games..

Personally, I am not into shopping but I still find a hard time in saving money.. I got a lot of things to pay for, School Tuition Fee, Personal Allowance, Room Rental,Electric Bill, etc.. So I don't know how to save my income..:(

Can't think of a thing. I do not allow myself to let something get out of control. I would shop sales if I needed the thing that was on sale, but to shop just becuse it is on sale is a really lousy reason to shop. You may spread your money a little further, but you don't save any, and you end up with stuff you don't need.

In fact I also buy a lot of stuff lately. I feel a little guilty to it. So I hope that I will control myself well and don't visit the online stores so often and therefore I will have no desire to buy anything I hope to save some money.

Yup! And that is being online most of the day! Sometimes, I feel I need more sleep. Like last night, I was up the whole night. I was thinking a lot of things plus I feel a bit of heaviness in my chest that I could barely sleep. And now, as early as 7am, I was already online!

I can't think of anything right now. I have an idea for you though on your clothes shopping. For every new outfit you buy or item you purchase, you have to donate one of your older garments to goodwill or some other thrift charity store. Right now, my brain wants me to work out, but the other half of my brain says, no I'm to tired to work out. And I am implying a work out for specific body parts. I have to get back in the groove, this is my battle right now.

About the shopping thing, I can say, it can be very habitual. Once you started buy something like clothes, it seems that the next round you go shopping again, you will sure to buy clothes again. It then goes again and again. Worse still, if you own a credit card. Sure will be finished! I also had been in a situation like when comes to food. I said to myself, 'Okay, I'm not going to eat that, so that I can save some cost.' But, in the end, I bought it. Well, it is hard to resist temptation.

Me TOO need to stop shopping. I have spent big money this month for few stuff that they were on sale 50%+20%. My boyfriend always remind me to buy what I need instead of buy what I want, but it is so hard to fight this temptation when I hang out and see some store labelled with "YEAR END SALE" I promise I will not say yes to my shopping desire,, but it become even harder everytime I say I will stop. Seems like my surrounding gives the opposite energy, SALE IS EVERY WHERE! This is christmas season,, season of sale

One time I used to surf on online shopping much and I stopped it because I realized that I was spending much time in shopping online. Instead, I discovered and shifted to mylot and my writing website. I think that everything that is too mush is bad. :-) Thanks for this. have a nice day!

When you see a big sale , you must remember in your heart, that you have another plan for yourself, maybe saving money for another business or something that really important, or maybe when you go to everywhere, you just put less money on your wallet. So you don't have to buy something that is not important :)
