Internet shopping makes it so easy to keep finding things to buy. At least your pooch will be happy! xo, j

I've done that too. I removed myself from all the stores' email lists so I don't receive notices on sales. I had an annual amazon prime membership and now I do it month to month to ween myself off it and am considering canceling it so that I will shop less. I got a budget planner and will start using it as soon as it arrives and am trying to sell stuff online. The impulse is there, but I find that it helps to wait a few days until the anxiousness wears off and then reevaluate if you need it.

Spending is my downfall as well Lu. But I’m trying to spend on things for the house now rather than on silly things for myself that i dont need. Latest extravagance was a sewing machine

Is this a part of BPD?? I've been doing this lately too - searching for things to purchase online, simply to "cheer myself up" I guess. I normally do it without thinking and then worry about it later
