    It is, it is! Does this mean you're in?

    The first step to solving your problem is to admit that you have a problem.

    I do not have a problem. Therefore, I am clearly exempt.

    Why not? My wife sat me down for her version of an intervention night before last anyway.

    I told the missus I would quit in December, but I broke down and purchased one pair of sweats. Three days later when the the box arrived I got an ominous text saying 'WHY IS THERE A BOX FROM A CLOTHING STORE ON OUR PORCH??'. I was counting on her being at school. She now calls them 'the sweatpants of a traitor'. [​IMG]

    I promised to lay off the expensive clothing until March. Don't know if I can do it.

    Bingo.

    This is the key to self control, in my experience. It means I need to stop reading SF, Will's blog, and other style sites as often as I do. But it's for a good cause. And I am staying out of B&S altogether. I know that, once I go in, I'm not coming out empty handed. Better not to go in at all.


    I originally stopped on this thread to see if it was the reason for all the abandoned shopping carts on my store this month. But I have to say hey! Stop buying if you must but keep reading ASW!

    Great idea. I'm in. Although, I'm proud to say that I've kicked my addiction on my own. Only things I buy nowadays are essential items, like underwear and socks, and a shirt on sale from MT once a month. But for the next two months I will bypass even that. What's next?! Quit smoking?

    Just a reminder, tonight at midnight central time is the deadline.
    Anyone else want in, now is the time.

    "I'm going to take up smoking then give that up!"


    I'm in btw. I just blew money on BB's 3 for 159 sale and am regretting it [for a few reasons].
