This is it. It is the night before my year of no retail therapy. I have several tabs open in my browser. Saks, Nordstrom, and Neiman Marcus to name a few. Just checking one last time if I need anything. I don’t. Right now, coming off the Christmas high it does not seem like I need or want anything which makes me think I will have no problems doing this.
What about next week? What about when I need to stress shop? What about when someone really hurts my feelings and the only thing which will make me feel better is a beautiful pair of shoes. I can do without buying new clothes, I have never been obsessed with them. I can do without buying accessories, something I was never obsessed with, but shoes…shoes, they are my achilles heel. I will need to look for other outlets. Maybe call my friends who I do not always speak to on a regular basis. I know that will make me feel better. Friends are great therapy.
What would you say is a way to overcome the shopping urge?
I can do this…right?
