- TTC tickets $21.50
- 2 watches and a ring $32.50 (Grrr.. kinda regret buying my $330 ToyWatch now)
- Munchie food $10

- UofT glow pen (it glows so you can write notes in lecture when the lights are dimmed) $5
- UofT frog stuffed animal for a present to my BFF in DC $3.25

Total = $154
- Proflowers = should have spent less
- Flowers for other mom's = could have passed
- Rose for my friend = should have passed
- TTC tickets = absolutely essential
- 2 watches + ring = should have passed for SURE
- Munchie food = I do need to eat
- Cab ride = I had blisters and I didn't want to do the extra 5-10 min walk
- UoftT glow pen = practical, but not entirely necessary
- UofT stuffed animal = well it was cheap enough.. and I wanted to treat my friend

Aw, Annie don't worry! You can get back on the bandwagon soon enough!

Today is going to be a great day!

So my $15 A Pocket cords came in the mail today! I'm sooo happy! They're not skinny jeans as advertised (thank god) but bootcut and they are actually .5" too long. Sooo happy

Plus, I also got a nice package of my perfume in the mail which cheers me up times a million.

And! My awesome parents' care package came in the mail today. They sent me a new camera (omg I was dying), terminator DVDs (my Dad and I are obsessed with the Sarah Conner Chronicles TV Show and I hadn't seen the movies), chocolate (<3), and my new glasses!

(The glasses especially are fantastic. I accidentally stepped on them and the side thing snapped off. I've had them for like 3 years and they were my favorite, so we had to try and get them repaired but Kate Spade always discontinues glasses really quickly so I was out of luck until the awesome staff at my Optical place tracked down the very last frames from Kate Spade.)


AND! I got into the History Honors event..! I wasn't sure if I'd make it this year since I'm only taking a half course in history, but I'm really glad.

callire, this ban of yours is so out of the window, it's more like "What Did I Buy Today Part 2"

Sorry Callire, but I have to +1 him on that

My update is....remember those $80 chromas I broke ban for? Well they were tight and I decided to trade them straight across for silver strutters I already had 3 gross of fushia AB crystals to put on them so I did that and traded

So the only thing I have bought since 4/4 are those Chromas. I bought some jeans for my sister and my friend.....birthday presents and what not. I even went to the mall yesterday which is a BIG thing for me as the mall is 4 hours away and I didn't buy anything

Ban good so far, but those Antwerp Dojos in the mall are calling me

post #339 of 495
We need more sign-ups... I thought this thread was full of people who really wanted to be on a ban. *confuzzled*

Bump to the top.. Hehehe

Yay Annie!!







I should also disclose that I bought some dress code appropriate pants before I joined the master ban (Annie's)... they were cheap though! >$40 shipped

I think we should all take a collection pic... I think it will help snap us out of our denial!!
post #344 of 495
I get scared whenever I see you post... I wonder if you've fallen off the bandwagon again.

I'm a little frustrated actually, I'm trying to downsize my collection.. My prices are rock bottom and I've received very little interest in them. I hate having to let them go for so cheap, and it's worst that no one even wants them. I'm raising the prices and selling on eBay instead. Hmph.
post #345 of 495
^ i know i hear ya! they will go much faster on ebay, look at it that way!! ive been good since the outlets......still no purchases!! prob will be on a ban for a few months because i just found out i was preggers!!!! yay! (i wanted a shower curtain yesterday and my dh said to save the $20 to put towards a pair of tr's for the little one!! hahahahaha) so my next purchase will prob be maternity jeans! EEK! callire i got the jeans in the mail today!! the rip falls below my knee so it looks really dumb! i suck for being short! boo

I have not spent anything!! Everyone! Collection pics! I think we all need a little reminder to stop buying more jeans!

I'm working on mine.
post #347 of 495
I posted this awhile ago.. but I'll go again. My collection is rather small.. The x's are the ones I'm selling/sold/may let go of.

wow good job everyone

I haven't spent a single dime on anything I did not pre-arrange too (work tops, school books). I plan on keeping it that way!!!!

I don't have much to sell....anything I want to sell isn't worth much so it's hard to get rid of

I would love to take a collection pic when I get my pants !

Good job everyone, well, so far good job. I am not buying ANY clothing related items until mid-june-ish (i might need to buy something for my grad/vacation at that point). I'm re-evaluating my plans! So that's about 6 weeks with NO spending. I plan on paying off my loans/visas with all the extra cash!

Woooo woooo
post #349 of 495
wow annie you sure are downsizing!
post #350 of 495
the end of the school semester is over and i more or less got the grades i aimed for, so the ban is kind of over for me? but i could always use a little extra cash between now and when i start my summer job, so i'm in the process of deciding what to sell... sigh
