I'm not gonna lie. I'm having serious withdrawals right now. I used to shop freely every week, packages were coming in every other day or so. It was that bad and I knew it had to stop but just like a smoker craves cigarettes, I miss shopping. Online shopping was (is) my weakness. Everything looks so shiny, new, perfect and meant for me. You know what I mean... you click on it, zoom in and out, picture yourself wearing those new shoes or sweater, etc and promise yourself you will wear it with everything in your closet to maximize the cost per wear. But that's when it goes downhill and $20 turns into $50, $50 into $100 and before you know it you've spent thousands. Don't even get me started on bags. I was addicted to Balenciaga, Chanel and Louis Vuitton. Those cravings and urges are not easy to satiate until you get it in your hand. Yet, it doesn't end there, you keep wanting more.
How many bags do we really need? How many pairs of shoes, lipglosses/lipsticks, blushes, blazers, jeans, rings, and tops will we actually use in our life? Just last night I was wanting to buy all these tops and pants for work but within 15 minutes I closed out of everything and felt really good that I didn't cave. I would much rather save than spend on things I don't need. This is my blog and I created it for these moments when I forget what I'm saving for. I want to have savings, buy a house, and be financially secure. That credit card debt is almost gone and I don't
want to see it skyrocket again.
