Am I a shopAholic?

Last night I was watching MTV, True Life. It was an episode about two girls addicted to shopping. It got me thinking. Do I know when to say when? Have you ever been in a store and found a great sale that you just could not resist? You know the price is so perfect, you can't let this sale pass you buy. You will never find these prices. You will hate yourself later. Yeah these are all the things the pass through my head. Luckily I never go too crazy and I never get to splurge on myself.
Ladies, if you can't pay your rent, or utilities say NO to the sale. Plus my fiancee pointed out to me, that I only have two feet! Luckily for him, my shoes are too new to throw at him for such a sarcastic joke. But he is right. Think about how this purchase will affect you. Since being a single mother and living on a budget, I ask myself is this a need or a want? If it is a need, i get it. A want can wait. Thanks to my wonderful fiancee all my wants are just a question away. "Honey will you buy this for me?"

I agree with the previous comment. I don't go shopping unless it's a need anymore. It's boring but it saves me from spending money I don't have.

I have never really liked shopping, but on a rare occasion I have been know to go off the deep end.
