There are times when i am a complete broke (and for a long time !!)….i have watched myself grow so restless and have this tremendous itch to go shopping….for a spur of a moment i am soo happy and it creeps in…“.the truth”…." i don’t have money to shop"…..i could put it in a better way but….truth is harsh in raw words !!

So tell me…what do you feel in a moment like this….i want to know…and i want to know if you feel the same or is it just me who gets hurt….!!

I look into my closet & check for better outfit in that way I diverted my attention into something else.

I don’t go to signature brand and expensive boutiques that I know I can’t afford to so as not to depress myself. I only shop to boutiques within my budget.

i know and understand the feeling because even though there so many temptations for shopping it’s really impossible to afford every “want”. I try to divert my attention elsewhere, and avoid browsing shopping websites or visit the mall because i find in my case it doesn’t help looking and drooling over things that are out of my budget anyways.

on the other hand, it does serve as motivation to try and work harder so that in the future i can afford to purchase things without worrying about money.

I want to cry when it happens! I still go out and window shop. I like to see things that I could possibly get when money does start rolling in again and then I go back to the store and purchase them If I still like them

Since I just started college, I’ve learned a lot about only shopping in my budget. However, I definitely love shopping, and when I can’t afford to, it drives me craaaaaaaaaazy! I can’t stand not being able to shop. Haha. A lot of times I’ll window shop or browse around the internet. Then, when I finally have some money I know exactly what to spend it on.

i would shop online. and add everything i want in the cart, then i would click check out and they’d total up how much the stuff cost. the total numbers would scare me off and i’d click X on my window. there, solve my craving.

It sucks! lol….I try to figure out a way to get some money (ask my hubby, etc…) but if I just can’t come up with any money and I am still itching to shop then I occupy myself with something else. Also organizing my closet helps too because I usually come across something that I forgot I had…

I try not to shop if I cannot buy anything at the moment. Cause if I do, inevitably I find something I cannot live without.
Sometimes I try to remember that I tend to buy stuff I will never even wear. Not often but it happens. Either that or i wear something a few times and then get tired of it.

I’ve gotten myself get better at this. Back then I would get super depressed and have no motivation to do anything else. Nowadays I am more aware with what I can afford so I don’t have high expectations. I can actually go window shopping without buying anything and I’ll feel 100x better about myself :)

I’m forcing myself to save these days, so there are times where I force myself to feel broke just so I wouldn’t spend any money. lol.
