How to walk away from the fluff?!

I can't stop buying CDs because I can't pass when I come across a good deal! My H is ready to kill me (or cut of my paypal ). How do you keep yourself from buying, buying, buying!?

Quit looking! That's the only way I can keep myself from buying. If I take a look, something is going into the cart. And I can usually find something on FSOT too. Seriously, the only way to keep myself from buying more (and I NEED NOTHING) is to not look.

You can put yourself 'on the wagon'. I'm pretty sure that if you join you get a little wagon symbol next to your avi, you do not have access to the fsot forums but you do have access to a special 'on the wagon' forum ?? I say 'I think' because I couldn't tell ya...I can't hop on the wagon if I tried

Seriously though, I try not to buy anything unless I have actual $ in my paypal. I do have my account linked to our bank account (for emergencies ) but try to limit all my purchases to my actual balance.

I have only been buying when I have money in my paypal account. Staying off DS helps also. Then you don't here about new diapers and want to try them.

Re: How to walk away from the fluff?!

My DH is the money maker and would get so mad if he saw CD purchases in our online banking. If I want to buy, I have to sell and use my PP. Sometimes I talk him into letting me buy CDs by telling him I'm washing too much or that we need more easy diapers for him lol.

Re: How to walk away from the fluff?!

Yeah, I have shopping addiction issues anyway, lol! But I just have to avoid looking at FSOT, HC, Spots, etc. I bought yarn this weekend when I have SO MUCH already, it's not even funny. All because I was perusing Spot's... ugh. You know it's bad when you start deleting email notices from Paypal so your DH won't see them...
