I'm curious to know
you people want to recover? I'm quite addicted to online shopping but it's too much fun for me to even consider slowing down
I'm actually what you would call a smart shopper, though. I browse through all my favorite online shops when the new season stuff comes in, I receive e-mail on any new arrivals and - no kidding - I keep a handwritten list (that's usually about 6 pages long, haha) of all the things I want to get at the end of the season when the sales are on. I keep looking up the things on my list to see if I still desire it enough or else I'll cross it off. By the end of the season I try to get the things that I still crave and that did go on sale. (I think I might be an OCD shopahlic
I rarely make any impulse purchases unless I go to outlets where 'stalking' an item usually isn't really an option.
But in spite of this sounding rather sensible I'm still only a student with a limited budget that buys only designer stuff, which still seems crazy to most people. Of course I make sure I don't go into debt but I do have to make a hell lot of sacrifices to be able to buy the things I want, but I'm completely fine by that.
Did being a shopaholic become a serious problem for any of you or do you just think it's not a good thing to spend so much time on money on something as unimportant as clothes and shoes?
