I need to chop my fingers off....

I've been spending money like I'm a Hollywood celeb (which I'm obviously NOT)...
In one week, I spent over $300 via online shopping...
Someone please cut my credit cards/tie my hands behind my back/disable all internet collection/burn down all malls so I can shop!!!

Seriously...The orders I made are from:
EDM-->$96.50
Jesse's Girl-->$34
Mark-->$75
Korean beauty shop-->$50 (on FREAKING NAILS!)
Walmart-->$30
Sally's -->$20

My wallet is crying/screaming/abhorring me right now! I'm sorry dear wallet...I didn't really mean to! I...just...slipped...I'm SORRY!!!!

Goal: Do not, I repeat, DO NOT, spend money on any appearance related stuff before August. From now on, I can only buy from ONE site every month. You, my fellow bloggers, are my witnesses. Please discipline me if you see my slipping... I need to count on you guys to crush some of my lemmings in the future. Thanks!

xoxo,
Tao

I know how it feels, i buy most of my makeup online because it's just so easy and convenient but i've sort of learnt how to control myself because i was using up the money my mother gave me to buy my car for makeup and also because i've sacrificed too many things like clothes and jewellery for makeup . blah! and to make things worse makeup in australia is double or more the price of usa even drugstore brands =(

I know how that feels too...or shall I say, every girl must know how that feels like. LOL. But girl, what kind of goal is that? only til August? and only spending on one site??! LOL. on a happier note, can't wait for your reviews on the goods you've ordered. LOL

haha cut your credit card in half! i cut mine in half after i bought a whole bunch of mac stuff... it didn't help with online purchases, but it definitely helped with buying things in person cuz i couldn't swipe the card lol.

I feel you girl! I have been on a no-buy for about 4 days now and I am having severe withdrawal symptoms!

ok its your money and you can spend it however you like, however it seems that you have a serious retail problem, with a concentration in cosmetics. with all the makeup you have already, why do you feel the need to keep buying more? you could've saved that $300 to buy books for fall semester!

Angie said...

Lol, poor thing. I seriously am in the same predicament lol. I feel that I go through some withdrawal state if I don't do any online shopping for a while hahah. So I definitely feel your pain and suffering lol. There should be some support group for us like the AA haha

It doesn't help that everyone's constantly posting about new products. :P

But don't worry, we'll keep you in check! I'm starting to get a little tired of hauling (how many bronze e/s do I really need, right?), so it's a start!
