I Can’t Stop
I think my newfound shopping habit has spiraled out of control.
It all started a few weeks ago when I was preparing for my trip to NYC. Naturally I had to have new boots for the cold, harsh NYC winter. And skinny pants to tuck into the boots. And while I was looking at the new pants I found a shirt that completed the ensemble perfectly.
I bought it all but my God the guilt! I felt a bit better when I assured myself that I’d only buy one or two things max when I finally got to NYC.
A pair of shoes, another pair of pants, 3 shirts, 2 tank tops, 1 outfit for Maya (aka guilty mom purchase), a $50 box of Godiva (my willpower was compromised by exhaustion), and a couple of other miscellaneous items later, I realized I spent 4 hours at Bloomingdale’s.
Considering that I spent about 4 hours shopping in total this year, this is a ridiculous disproportionate amount of time to be in one store. The worst part of it all is that I am still itching to go to my local Bloomingdale’s to see what else I can amass!
I was considering joining a support group but then last night I found Ali ogling laptops on the Home Shopping Network…and now all is well in my world once more.
