    depends how much money is in my bank account
    This. I'm pretty good when my bank account has little more than is needed to make the rent... and not just for clothes... in this situation I'm pretty good about limiting eating out / groceries and all other spending as well. otherwise... I'm not so great....

    +1

    Also depends on what it is. I have a few items that would be definite purchases if I came across them but otherwise, I can generally let things slide.

    Depends on how much money is in my paypal account. Thankfully, I sell other stuff each month and don't dip into my paycheck. The trick is transferring $ from paypal to my checking before I spend it.

    Also, depends on what it is. I've gotten pretty good about saving up for grail items.

    Well, I just resisted the urge to pull the trigger on a pair of Tricker's at Sierra Trading Post, so...maybe better than I thought? They look fantastic, but I can't really justify them and they wouldn't fill a hole in my wardrobe.

    The problem is the smaller, dumber purchases, which are easier to justify, harder to resist, but generally aren't as satisfying overall as picking up a grail-level item, even if the latter is at a hard-to-swallow price point.

    a while back i added up all the money i'd spent on stupid cheap things i'd only worn once, and i probably could have bought some baller shit had i saved the money instead.
