The longest I can go without shopping is 1-2 weeks but I would be unhappy during that period. I also browse online every day.

Lately, I've only been able to contain myself for about a week. The real problem is my online surfing--once I see something I like, I obsess over it and usually end up buying it.

i'm an 'other' right now given that i have NO money and it makes me really sad that i can't shop. if i could - i would probably be out scouting for my next best find but it would just be torture to do that now.

My record was a month but usually, it's 2 weeks when I have a tight schedule.

I get antsy if I'm stuck in the house all day. So if it were up to me I'd be shopping every day, usually I am. Today shopped for hours, yesterday I was sick, and the day before that I shopped from 9 in the morning till 9:30 at night. Then I go home and shop online. Then I wonder where all my money goes.

as long as I need to; such as when I'm out of money or I need to save - but that doesn't happen often so I'm at the mall or online whenever I want something (man, that sounds really spoiled)...

It depends on my stress level and what season it is. If I am super stressed at work, I find shopping to be cathartic for me. If it is the holiday season (especially Boxing Day/week), I have to get out there!

Are we including actual purchases, or browsing too? I can limit my actual purchases pretty well, but I'm constantly looking :P

hmmm...it all really depends on money and how i feel (yeah, i'm an emotional shopper, i admit it) and whether i'm actually around the shops at all. i just got an internship in center city, so i know it's going to be much, much harder now to resist.

I don't even know how long I can go without shopping. When I'm at school I usually only have time to go when I come home for breaks, which is maybe every 6 weeks. I used shopping to relax during finals time though.. and almost failed the final I had right after that :( haha oh well. When I have time though, I probably shop on average once every other week.

I shop everyday and I buy make purchases about 3-4 times a week on average for clothing related items. Sometimes more or less. Most of my money goes to shopping. I always have enough to pay my bills, I work really hard so, why not??

I have to go at least once a month...I can't imagine going longer than that! Haha.

I can go months on end without doing any shopping for myself. I'm quite picky, and also love thrift and consignment shopping so sometimes I have to wait for what I want at a price I'm willing to pay. If I had a huge disposable income the story would be quite different!

About a month. I usually buy everything I want on one shot so I can sustain myself from shopping all the time.

I NEED to take a couple of months off. I can go a couple of weeks then the urge starts to take over.

I can control myself, but that doesn't mean I am happy about it.
