    Default Has your handbag/shopping obsession ever gotten you into trouble?

    I just thought it might be fun to share stories about shopping overload. For example, I hate to admit this, but I screwed up my bookkeeping one month and bought clothes, and a new purse and neglected to pay the light bill. Needless to say, after two days in the dark, I vowed to always balance my checkbook before I shop.

    Anyone else with similar stories? Or am I the only one who is challenged when it comes to balancing the checkbook?

    Other than running my credit card up, nothing that extreme. Hopefully I won't get too bad!

    I can't say that I've ever gotten into serious trouble with my shopping.. I mean I do spend a lot of money, but it all comes right from my checking account, no charging. I am proud to say I have no CC debt.

    So far i have been sensible. haven't had a problem controlling my shopping urges, but with all the new bags coming out lately, i might just end up breaking that trend although it won't cause any trouble financially...i would just feel guilty

    No, not really. I use money from b'days and holidays or sell bags that I don't carry anymore to fund new ones.

    Too funny!!! I have the same issue with my husband. It is really the only thing that we argue about. He see's it as wasteful spending, especially since he thinks I have every color and style imaginable in my small bursting closet.

    I hide stuff from my mom too. But I'd show her something I bought before I'd show it to Mr BRS.

    ME TOO!! But in my case -- he just complains because they're all over the place! Hubby actually likes for me to carry nice bags....and tells me when other women are having what he calls "bag envy"

    I should say that it has never gotten me in financial trouble. But still like BRS I have to hide purses from my husband (used to) and definately from friends and family because of the intense guilt I feel sometimes. I finally told my mom about my obsession the other day and I have got to say it was a relief to get it off of my chest. But I think she is having a hard time with the amout of money I had spent because she is on a very fixed income. Although she said it is my $ and I should do what I want with it, there was this underlying tone like...I am struggling by on what little have, and you are spending thousands on purses....Now I feel like TOTAL crap...but the funnny thing is she would never take money from me if I offered it ti her!!!

    Eh...maybe a couple times, I guess. I had just bought a beautiful LV Alma MM in Rose Pop! I'll post pics soon, hopefully. When Mother found out, it got very messy. But thankfully, she said i had spent my hard-earned money on something I actually wanted, and that it was sort of a good choice (gotta love the bag!). I just wish she won't sneak it from me when she visits.
