Confessions of a shopaholic...

Ok People…. I am seriously having major problems… I need some serious help. NOW. I can’t stop thinking about shopping. It is no bueno. Have you seen the movie Confessions of a Shopaholic? Well everyone, My name is Shaundra and I am a shopaholic. I have been on the wagon for over a year now ever since I spent 400+ on back to school clothes. That was seriously a dangerous time. I thought I wouldn’t be able to stop. But I have done so SO good. I have been saving over 80% of my paycheck trying to save up for an education.. bleh… Why is it SO expensive.. Welcome to reality! But for the last month I have gotten sudden urges inside to go shop! I just want to buy everything-Shoes, jewelry, clothes, décor for my apartment, comfy chairs, you name it and I guarantee I have dreamt at night of buying it. Oh how I wish I was rich! I need to stop this! I am thinking maybe it is hitting so strongly because I haven’t allowed myself any fun money…. My money goes to tithing, savings, and gas and that is it. So maybe I need to set aside some fun money? I just feel guilty when I spend…. But when I am not spending I just want too many things…. Wowy… I need so figure something out.  I am thinking I am going to set aside $120.00 Just for spending on whatever my heart desires. Good idea? I think so!

WE need help. Haha. I have gone on a shopping craze. BUT not beyond my budget. But I budget 30% to shopping 10% tithing and 60% for savings. I don't know how you do it... Take me with you when you go spend that $120.00! I get paid A LOT soon and I'll prob spend like $100 for back to school.! Once we're all college we'll be stuck with the clothes we got, so we gotta build our closet now right?? loves for my soon-to-be apartmentie!

That is so true! :) That is a good budget though.. I might start doing that my last couple pay checks. I really want to buy this comfy lounge chair at Kohls... It looks amazing. It is 34 buckaroos so I am waiting for it to have an amazing sale...

don't worry...living with me long enough, with my weird frugality, it will probably rub off on you a bit. And in return i need your help to be able to shop and spend! haha i think we should shop together, we'd balance each other well. :)
