"single black female addicted to retail..."
-yeah that kind of sums it up
I posed this question to the Luvin' My Curves Facebook Page not too long ago;
"Do you consider yourself a stress shopper?"
For awhile I've been trying to figure out how exactly do I handle stress - and I think over time it's changed. I was never one to eat when stressed, I would usually sleep it off. But recently multiple stressors have driven me close to insane and looking at my card statement it hasn't just been for groceries. My justification; " I work hard, I deserve to treat myself" - I don't know how long that excuse will last but I will ride it out as long as I can.
You won't catch me buying anything extravagant - nothing overly expensive... I still use coupons but there is something about stress that leads me to shop.
What's the cure?
Well, I could try to find another way to channel my stress - I've tried that, the idea of an extra workout to distract me from shopping doesn't do it for me, sorry. I have tried to grab my journal and write it out, but that doesn't give me the same satisfaction. Do you have any suggestions?
My most recent scores:
|Lynn Strappy Sandal, $28.40 Avenue|
|Michael Antonio Garner $69, Zappos|
The shoes are cute, but if I can pinpoint the reason I bought it, is it really worth it?
How do deal with stress shopping? Do you window shop, think before you buy, or go overboard?
