I used to buy things just cause. But I realized if I want to live better (for exmaple a nice house, a nice car, etc) than that shirt,purse, whatever it may be can wait. But if it's a good good deal, than I'll pounce on it!

My habit comes and goes in spurts. I'll go on a rampage, spending way too much money over the course of a week or so, but then I'll go dormant for a couples months. If you think about it, it makes sense. I wear the new cute stuff, get sick of it, and then go restock! Luckily, my boyfriend is the same way, so we usually splurge together. :P

Completely. Yesterday I stopped into Sephora to get a sample of perfume and ended up walking out with lip gloss, nail polish, and a new brush. I can't help it I have the urge to buy every time I go into a store... I just read shopaholic and it made me sad because on some level I related to the way she rationalized her spending habits =/

Mostly for buying music, kind of. But I always end wondering whether I really want something before I buy it.

I love to shop in general, but my real weakness is shoes.

I am so not suprised that the majority are shopoholics including myself. It's a total addiction. I literally feel high when I have bought the most amazing outfit, shoes, accessories, etc.

It depends on my mood. If I am sad or mad I am more likely to send money. But on average I am careful they way I send my money.

i used to be spending money as soon as it comes into the bank but now i'm definately learning the value of a dollar

Yes...I always have been. If I see something and I love it, I buy it. But I'm trying to be better about this lately.

I used to be but I'm much more money conscious now.

No. I'm very picky with what I buy so I guess that keeps me from any impulse buying.

I'm with javsmav. I see something on here and I buy it! :D I need rehab too but it's bad b/c my boyfriend and my parents ALWAYS bail me out so I haven't quite learned my lesson yet to start saving. :OOPS:

I also need to go to rehab. The high from finding a good deal is very addictive. P.S. Fab: my Theory sandals will be delivered today. And that's not the first time I've seen something on Fabsugar and bought it immediately.

I used to be really bad about impulse buying but I rarely do it anymore.

I used to be an impulse shopper, until I really started watching how we spend our money and created a budget. Yes, it's boring. But you'd be amazed at how much money you can save when you do this. And I have everything I need plus little 'fun money' left over. I'll probably never go back to impulsive shopping. This is much better. :-)
