A shopping problem. Many of my friends call it an addiction. And they may be right. Lately I’ve been finding myself making purchases faster than I can process what I’m buying! I mentioned previously that I even “sleep shopped”. How ridiculous is that?! Sometimes, I just can’t help myself. I blame my father and my sister for this addiction. Whoops.
I realized this is definitely NOT the responsible way to go about things, but I seem to always be telling people that, “I might as well shop a little (lot) before I need to start worrying about real expenses.” Good philosophy, right?
After the past two weeks, I’ve realized that I really need to slow it down with the purchases. I shop way too much for a girl on a college budget. Over the past 2 weeks I’ve made one too many purchases from J. Crew – four new tops and two pairs of shoes, a Sidney Crosby jersey, a dress from the Gap, and new Ralph Lauren loafers.
So, I’ve made a new challenge for myself – no more shopping for the next month. I know it doesn’t seem like a long time, and I should probably try to do it for two months, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Let’s see how well this goes!
Wish me luck!
