I have been bit by the shopping bug!

You're a Window Shopper!



You know that shopping's a blast, but you prefer to save your money
You hardly ever give into an impulse buy, unless it's a total steal
You've always got the most money of your friends - and you never have to borrow
And you've got a nice wardrobe too ... of classic pieces that last years!

I actually don't have a credit card (only debit), but I do love that clearance! :D

You're constantly adding to your wardrobe - and it shows<br />
However, you can show some restraint. You love good deals.<br />
Your love of the clearance rack has paid off...<br />
You probably have only maxed out card or two, if at all!

Thats me!
 
You Are A Total Shopaholic!



You have a keen eye for spotting trends before they are hot
And sometimes your credit rating takes a beating as a result
Consider a job in retail to subsidize your gorgeous outfits
Over time, you could become a famous stylist or designer!


HOLY CRAP!!!! I am not showing hubby this! but I did laugh out loud at the "CONCIDER A JOB IN RETAIL PART!" hahahahahahahaha! That is not advice you should give a junkie with a problem! That is like telling an over eater to get a job at Taco Bell! I love it!speechless

I already knew it...
 
I am a window shopper.

I already knew it from the days after I got divorced and had NOTHING to my name. Those were the days when credit card companies only issued them in the husbands name or with Mr. & Mrs, on them. So, when I tried to get
a card as just ME they refused to issue it because I had not credit
history just in my name. I pinched pennies so tight in those days the copper wore off them. Seriously, after paying bills & the rent, I typically had $2 left till the next pay day. I would treat myself by going window shopping at one of the malls and if it was close to pay day, I would blow the $2 on a soda to sip as I walked the mall.

Taught me hard lessons and I still practice them today. I do have spells
of shopping till I drop but I always cut myself off at a certain point and return to my frugalness.

I am a BAD influence then!!! I am horrible with a budget these day! Maybe because I was so broke for so long that I just liek to enjoy it too much now! I am BAD I tell you :( BAD!

I am frugal most of the time so that I can plan the occasional splurge.....
I buy the very best quality I can (especially shoes and bags) so that they will last forever.
I try and "re-purpose" things I no longer can use by giving it to someone who can.
I believe women should own at least one classic designer dress and two really good pieces of jewelry.
Also, at least once in your life own a jaguar or a porsche...

Ladies, if you don't spoil yourself on occasion , who will?:thumbsup:

I'm a window shopper too!!!! Funny I thought I would be an impulsive buyer with a chronic problem.
I have a dirty little secret. I stillhave a bunch of shirts for summer that I purchased years ago with tags still on them. I am too scared to wear them as they were expensive and now I have kids and a puppy....I'm hoping to wear them somedayspeechless
