Hello, I am a shopaholic.
Today I faced the dreaded curse of after Christmas/New Year's/end-of-season sales....
Need I say more.
I overspent, when I was supposed to be saving.
Of course I had to hit up Victoria's Secret for the semi-annual sale. Not mad at that because I needed some new bras ; )
Next was Express....I made it out safe, but almost fell for a dress that was 1 size to big for me.
Then came Guess. They are doing 50% already reduced items. So I copped a dress that was moderately expensive, but really cute.
Bought a jacket, headband, and some jeans at Forever 21.
Then I walked past Nine West. Wasn't gonna go in because by that point I had spent a little over my budget.
HOWEVER, I went in to see what was available....harmless I thought!
They were having the best deal on boots, and boots are my weakness(one of them)! I found a pair that were only $50. Great deal!
THEN I remembered that I had a store credit at home for $26.49. Went home and got it!
Came back to buy that pair of boots, THEN I realized that I was only spending $25 on the boots so I might as well get those knee-high boots that are $75 as well.
Upon completing my purchase, the salesman says "I proud of you for getting both pairs!" WHAT...really? Of course you're proud; I just moved product from your shelf. But no one really knows the trouble I'm getting myself into. I just smiled gracefully!
To end the story....I paid $110 for two pair of boots, which is a great deal. However, I spent $110 beyond my budget. Yea $110 isn't really that much, but it is in my situation. AND, this happens more than it should. Oh, and I really only went to the mall for the Guess dress and to visit Victoria's Secret.
I'M DONE WITH SHOPPING FOR A WHILE. Hopefully I can lay off for the rest of the month.
I wanna make a BIG trip in February, and it won't be possible if I don't stop shopping.
If I can't control this I'll be at Shopaholics Anonymous REAL soon. LOL!
