How do you control your spending urges?!

Postby fleur08 » Tue Sep 15, 2009 1:01 pm

just wondering how everybody copes with wanting to buy nappys all the time?
im terrible,if i see something new or recomended -i want 2 of them & could easily blow a couple of hundred in one easy go :hohoho:
the only thing that stops me is knowing that im not working & the other half would kill me if i got a massive credit card bill ( we have seperate ones and i buy the nappys)
so far i want
pudlekins night, bububebe,mutts,goodmamas,weenotion something or other,liners, hollow oak & more :oops:
so how do you all cope??

~I go and look at the pile of fluff that isn't a good fit or I just don't like, that is waiting for me to list in various places and then go and pick up the longies that are taking me ages to knit and have a go at those instead!! :knit:

(or go and comb the classifieds to see if I can get any of those I want pre loved at a price I can afford! :hohoho: )

Stay away from Rhead's posts :giggle: She always finds lovely nappies and I am now about to order from a company she told us about today!
I can be quite sensible and only use pp but for things like custom woolies and co-ops they come out of the bank account!!

By staying away from here. :hohoho: :hohoho: :hohoho: This lot are a terrible influence. :wink:

Apart from that I enjoy browsing and looking at what everyone else is buying. I also knit a lot of woolies and enjoy dyeing things.

I'm more restrained now than I used to be. :wink: If there is something I really want I'll save up enough paypal first. Nappies are great but not worth getting in debt over.

Oh I was terrible - if I saw something I wanted, and didnt order it straight away, it played on my mind until I eventually did order it, and I never ordered just the one to try either, usually ended up with at least 2 :oops:

My main problem is my paypal is linked to my bank account, so I'm very much like Sadie and buy what I really want.

Sometimes I find things and think "hmm, that's nice", but unless it's something I desperately need, I refrain.

:hohoho: Who am I trying to kid? I have no willpower :giggle:

I don't control them, in fact I've been known to browse the classifieds in the middle of the night if I've been awake :oops:

I do try only to use pp from stuff I've sold though :giggle:
