Ok, so I needed to get my son a new jacket...he outgrew the one he had. So I figured I'd go to the mall where I knew there is a Gap Kids and a Macys. The first store near the entrance was Old Navy and it was having some weird sale, I thought I'd look for jackets. I came out of there with a month's worth of clothes for my son! But NOoooo...I didn't stop there

...I figured he'd need a new pair of shoes too. I came out of Foot Locker with 4 pairs of sneakers(2 for him and 2 for me). Then I saw some sunglasses in a shop and went in and got 3 pairs(couldn't decide so got them all) Right in front of the eyewear store was a kiosk with body jewelry, thought I'd get a new belly ring. Ended up with buy 2 get one free(I only have one belly button!) Keep in mind, I still have not purchased the jacket I went for. By the time I bought a jacket for my son, I had a new wardrobe for him as well as my boyfriend and 3 shopping bags full of accessories for myself!

I need help! I can see myself in one of those groups like "hi, I'm envy and I get easily destracted shopping and have a problem with deciding so I always buy it all". I don't think I should be allowed to leave the house without adult supervision

Even my 3 1/2 year old son was telling me "momma that's enough"

"Hi, my name is ______ and I am a shopaholic."

There is a twelve step program for this addiction. The first step is to give me your new sunglasses and your lovely LV case.

You know what though, if you're into fakes, someone gave me a LV bag for Xmas last year(they said it was real, but I know better) It's a good fake though...if you want it. It looks like this one

I'm always like that... I'll go in for one thing, and come out with 10. (Even sometimes w/o what I originally went for!)

I did finally end up getting a jacket, but it wasn't at the mall. I had to go to a separate children's store for it. I usually stick to shopping at smaller boutiques because I know I have problems

Yea, I hear ya! I went to MAC @ MAcy's tonight and practically speed-walked into Sears b/c I had a gift cert from XMas and even though the mall was closing in 10 min. I still HAD to look anyway!! lol No Sketchers which I was hoping they'd have (since I buy a new pair every spring/summer) but they did have tons of Seafoam green tops which I might have to go back and look through again !!! (My favorite color) LOL

I have this problem too. My husband will not come with me. He said that I have a bad habit of saying I'm just going to get one thing and I end up getting everything else around! I'm like oh what's this and buy it! It's bad!

Envy, you're not alone. Many of us are like this & it's comforting to know that I'm not the only one.

One thing that i do, is bring only enough cash for what i'm planning on buying. I leave my bank cards at home and i don't have a CC so that way i can only get what i need!

I don't own anymore CC's. I only have my business one and I only use that for certain business related things and gas. That's the crazy thing, I always pay cash when I shop.

I was at the Northridge Mall(I usually hate this mall,but it's good for my son) but then ended up finding the jacket at a shop in Studio City.
