Hello, my name is Kim and I am a shopaholic.
Seriously – money burns a hole in my pocket. I’ve noticed that I’ve had some extra funds as of late (mostly because I haven’t gone shopping in awhile… amazing what NOT shopping does for my checking account) and it has made me antsy.
I think that if it weren’t for my husband, I’d still be living paycheck to paycheck, under a mountain of credit card debt (and worse – STORE credit cards) and with no savings. That is pretty much how I left college and I’m not even including my student loan debt!
I think when I graduated from undergrad, I had racked up close to $11k in CREDIT CARD debt with nothing to show for it! I had a ton of junk and was about 20 lbs overweight. I ended up moving back in with my parents (not a high point in my life) and managed to pay off my debt.
But still – money burns a hole in my pocket.
Its probably a really bad thing that I’m signed up for e-mail notifications from Shop It To Me, Gilt Group, Rue La La as well as all of the various online shops I’ve frequented.
So anywho – I bought a bunch of stuff from the Gap yesterday because I received an e-mail notice stating that their sale merchandise was an extra 20% off.
Seriously, I have a problem.
I didn’t even get anything super fabulous — just a bunch of basics like:
… not to mention many more. (Okay – not THAT much more, breathe easy Jeremy)
And like an addict – I feel better and yet guilty all at the same time.
(oh – and I’m totally going shopping this weekend. Yikes!)
