I like the way 'fauxcat' put it! :) there's always a better deal lurking around.. or may be a better use for the money that was not spent !!!

agree fauxcat. i have a saying, something else you want just as much will always come along. i hate when i want something so bad, wait, then finally get it, then am not so enamored with it. it's making me really consider what is really me and what is just a trend. stuff i buy that is me, i usually love for a long time. trendy popular stuff, i tire of once i get it. i try and stay under the 100$ cap but it's hard these days, everything is so ridiculously priced. especially t-shirts! 80+ for a t-shirt and sheer at that?! please.

#16 - It's the exact same for me. If I don't have money, I obviously can't get it. By the time I can afford to get it, it's gone. Like you said. :( #17 - They're either lying, quite rich, or they're one of those compulsive shoppers that buy everything and end up in major debt.

it always happens when i can't afford it when i discover it, and by the time i get paid, it's GONE.

YES! The most recent things: Chanel Jade polish and the Nanette Lepore Cafe Paris sheath dress. Tear.

Nope. I usually only do that for expensive items, but even for those, I've never put off buying for so long that it sold out. Totally agree, Shop_Oholic. And I'm too lazy to go ask for a refund. It sucks.

Yeah but I think I get more mad when I buy something and then it goes on sale!

I'm actually kinda happy when that happens. No money used! :D

Yes, this happens to me from time to time - it takes a crowbar to pry me from my money, especially for bigger-ticket items (like, over $100...I was raised as a thrift-store shopper). I always prefer to wait and see if the coveted item is still on my mind a week later; then I might buy it. Sometimes it sells out, but frankly, I have so much "stuff" already that I can always live without it. After a while, I forget about it completely and move on to the next thing. Ah, rampant consumerism. ;)

Always :( I'm super proud of myself for buying my daughter's Christmas dress really early this year though, it sold out the week after I got it (end of October) and they haven't gotten it back in stock since.

That's happened to me many times, but I told myself that there is always going to be something new I can look forward to.

They way I think of it when that happens is it was not meant to be! Think about it: do you really want something that ALLL those other people who bought it also own?
