post #258 of 269
I completely stuffed up . I ended up spending $1080 during the months of September. Mainly due to RL and HB sale.
My bank account hasn't seen a bit of savings since February. I am an addict and in need of help. I promised my partner not to shop anymore and trying to quit but failed.
-
2 lacoste belts - $120
RL vest - $149
RL half zip - $139
RL regent shirt- $99
2x RL Custom sport shirt- $165
2x HB dress shirts - $179
Lacoste dress shirt -$59
2x dress pants -$120
Topy a pair of shoes - $40

Some of my new cloths are hidden inside other cloths. If my gf finds out I will have move out.shog[1].gif

Hi mate, it didn't make me a better person. I am ashamed for my silly shopping's. Every time I buy something I feel guilty but I just cant stop. My work is in the middle of the Sydney shopping central. And it just makes it too hard. I have done so much lunch time shopping that I am embarrassed carrying a shopping bag to my office. I hide it in side my work bag. As I am sure my work mates they laugh behind my back regarding my shopping addiction. As I say I am to a point hide cloths inside other cloths so my partner doesn't find out. And not to mention last time I was able to put some funds on my savings was last February.
If you have any suggestions on how I can control this would be great.

Bring lunch to work, then you limit the temptation. Just make sure you're not browsing online

Find a new hobby. I was never much of a shopping addict, but taking up salsa helped me tremendously. Now, I dance almost 5 days a week. It helps me stay in shape, it's lots of fun and it keeps my mind off other things.

Also, understand what your style is and don't just buy random things. Buy things you need, that's OK, but you have to realize that you don't need everything that looks good. There are too many things in the world, can't have them all. For instance, I like shirts and slim cotton pants. That's my everyday style. So I have a lot of shirts and a lot of cotton slim pants. I don't have any zip-up sweaters and only own one cardigan. Mr.K on the other hand likes to wear cardigans and sweaters and looks good in them, so he has a lot of those. I'm sure he has less shirts than I do, though. And probably less pants. Find your style and stick to it. But most importantly, find a new hobby. That's for sure.

That's the biggest thing^, don't let shopping and clothes be your main hobby. It can still be a hobby and something you enjoy, but you need something else to do with your free time.

I think I'm still under a $100 for the month but although I owned none of the things I bought (well, the shirts, maybe?) I think I'd have been disqualified.
Kibitzing has some advantages, I suppose. Best of luck and congrats to those of you who stayed the course.

Almost the end of September and I'm proud to say I haven't spent any $$ on clothes this month.

 

Edit:

Wait, does paying your tailor for altering a jacket or pants count?
