Shopping ban, anyone care to join? (May shopping challenge... Are you game?) - Page 16

post #376 of 495
the frankie b sale haute.com had the other day was sooooo hard to resist, but i did!!!! there was a couple that i wanted to get, but i said NO! having a good support system (my bf) really helps too.

also, theres this pair of sevens that ive been eyeing at nordies rack. its really cute and i figured they would sell quick. ive been back like three times within the last month and half and theyre still there. i tried to justify getting them by saying that we're destined to be together...then i smack myself and get back to reality. haha.

I bought a T-Bags top, but I don't consider it cheating because I've been looking for one foreeeever for my birthday! Anyway, it was only 26.50 shipped (dirt cheap) and suuuper cute, exhibit a, so I think I'll love it! Plus, I can resell it after my birthday and presto!

No Godiva for you

Unfortunately, my grandma has just passed away. For the funeral I've been instructed that the dress code is black pants and a white top, for both men and women. I've been looking through my wardrobe and I don't think I have any white tops that would be appropriate. I think I'll most likely have to be buy a white blouse and some sort of blazer..

^So sorry for your loss
post #382 of 495

post #383 of 495
aw annie I'm sorry

Callire I meant at the end of this school year! naughty naughty.

Me? Well I got my super t's. They are snug, muffin top But it made me realize that, hey I still need to lose my xmas weight. My pants didn't shrink, my ass got bigger. I'm doing a super yoga kick start to lose some weight and keeping my cals low! hahah I'm also damp stretching my supers....

Oh, and my *ALMOST* indulgence? I really want a pair of navy blue lulu capris for work, but I'm not buying until after June, and if I want them in July I"ll have to push my new purse purchase back. Look at me go!

Eh..

I'm considering giving up/selling my jeans. I dunno, it just doesn't really feel like me anymore. I'm more aware of them in public, and I don't think I really like the deisgner image anymore. I might keep some of them since I like the fit, but I might remove the sitching or something.
post #385 of 495
^^Huh? Remove stitching? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Just sell them for crying out loud!!
post #386 of 495
hum Callire I have to agree that you should just sell them. You don't know what it will look like behind the stitching (not as faded, too faded, etc).


what should I get rid of?




Dark Vint joeys (503), big ty's sixty, aqua fleece

quallade scrops, glacier kates, donkey joeys, black/silver stockholm, diesel (riden?), bobby, rainbow roths, paige capris

lime crowns, 1921 straight, midnight duc joeys, wimbleton coh ava? (straight), super t joey, dpe sammy, med clearwater mickeys, citizen skirt

Keeps: rainbows are ripped and repaired, aqua fleece (keep no one else likes), paige capris, citizen skirt.

not pictured (keeps) dojos, Dark wash white 7's

What do you think?

the kates have a small but very unoticable and fixable small tear, I'd want to sell for like $40-$45 bucks not shipped or else keep.

She did say considering, ladies.

Hope you don't remove the stitching though. Whatever reasoning you choose I know you will be comfortable with it.

Ha.. no, I mean some of the labels. Actually, for some of the darker washes you wouldn't be able to tell, and after washing them, they'd just look normal.. I think. Nevermind, I'm still considering it. I just don't feel comfortable in them anymore.


Anyway, I ordered end of year gifts for my professors. Professors are always nicer to me if I bribe them with food I got an assortment of the following: sugar & chocolate chip cookies, red velvet cake bars, chocolate shortbread thumbprints and brownies. I don't have time to bake, so it worked out well. Pretty cheap too. I love Etsy.

^^ That is an esstential step in getting end of year perks... (like getting essential retakes that I shouldn't really be getting-- if I need them) Plus, one of my bribe-ees is my dorm head, and I really owe him for bailing me out a few times...

BUT no personal purchases. I also took my mechanics test today and I'm crossing my fingers that I passed.

I really want to stop buying so much but find it really really hard, if I see something I like I have to buy it especially for my kids, they are only 2+3 and have about 5 pairs of R&R and 8 pairs of TR between them including Super T's, I also have loads of jeans that dont fit me (I put on weight) and instead of trying seriously to slim back into them I am breaking my shopping ban to buy more in bigger sizes. I really want to stop, I have been playing Soduko on my pc to stop me looking for things to buy which has helped but Im bored of it now, any other suggestions/advice

DO NOT LOG ONTO EBAY! EVER!
post #391 of 495
I have been avoiding ebay but then like this morning I get emails saying 40% off sale Ralph Lauren and without really thinking I jump on and buy a couple of bits of kids clothes and spend $100 I felt guilty and knew I shouldn't but try to justify it to myself

why cant I just stop????????????my kids have enough clothes for 10 kids and I still keep buying (I have given lots of their clothes to other families who need them more already but they still have tons!)
post #392 of 495
^^make a list of things you should buy instead....I'd really like new bedding, new towels, etc...cool things around the house....then buy that type of stuff instead. Or things like "hooked on phonics" for your kids, get them reading early....

and I've joined weight watchers online and did that....$65 for 3 months isn't bad and worth it to fit back into your jeans Plus it will keep your mind off of jeans and busy with trying the new WW plan

WHAT MORE DO THEY WANT? Arg! My history department! I swear, I have no idea what else I can do for them. I have consecutively earned honors in their courses, straight As, my teachers love me, I've volunteered for the state's historical site, and they still haven't gotten back to me about my application! SERIOUSLY? Do they want my first born child too?

This is insane! I will be PISSED if they don't give it to me.

Oh, but I got a 100% on my math test! YAY!

post #395 of 495
ya they are, I have no idea what the proper terms are. I actually listed the the citizens (the pockets are just too far apart, although Ilove to roll them into crops). I have a feeling I may regret this.... (ok ok I'm telling myself to suck it up).

The crowns run big if your looking ot buy, I wish I would have sized down I got them as a gift so I feel like I can't sell, yet I'm too afraid to get them tailored!

Sell the crowns! You might want to wait until the market picks up a bit, but the value for crowns seems to be going up!

I've been having some luck with eBay, which is weird, because I (almost) never make any profits off ebay. I sold my CARs... it was so hard! But, it got bid up a TON! Freeaky... I thought now was a bad time to sell?

good job, i wish i resisted, but i couldn't.. so i bought a pair.
post #398 of 495
No!!! guest you were sooooo strong! Don't give up yet!

I'm *kinda* breakign my ban for some face cleaner because I'm breaking out and it's hideous. But that's it, and it's not much, and I DO actually need it. I've been trying other cleansers for about 1 week now and enough is enough!

I've discovered a great way not to spend. I forgot my debit in a pants pocket, and my visa is maxed out so I can't put any more charges on it! hahahha it's sad but good. I'll be paying off the visa soon and putting into a drawer somewhere soon.

I listed 2 pairs, I'm pretty happy. Callire maybe I'll list the green crowns too? I'm conflicted because they were a gift, and were not cheap
post #399 of 495
omg.. all you girlies make me feel like poooo!!!!

with all the sales going on in stores and online, i can't stop buying buying buying as if there's no tomorrow...

*cries*
post #400 of 495
Just to make you feel even worse, I have not bought anything this week and just listed loads of jeans on Ebay

I also won my Paypal claim so have money sitting in account although it is killing me not spending it
