It's true. I do. I don't even use Polyvore much because everything I like is in the triple to quadruple digits price range. I stopped subscribing to Harper's Bazaar because I felt it was too much like Vogue, where everything is luxuriously expensive (for me). Then I realized I should just stop browsing in general, and I even stepped away from all those blogs promoting the latest products (even though I do this sometimes...), with reviews of the latest products, or just telling you what to buy this season. I unsubscribed to most of them, and now I read blogs with real content, or the occasional review, because personally I find reading/writing reviews a little bit boring (unless of course I'm interested in finding out about the product, or it's something new and exciting, which would be why I subscribe to the blogs I do read). For example, I've had a Makeupalley account for at least a year now but I've written
Overall, I guess what I'm trying to point out is that if you're spending is out of control, then take control of it! Perhaps you cannot stop watching TV and avoiding TV ads (as I do by watching online), perhaps you do like browsing sales (I do too!), perhaps you enjoy knowing when your offers are, or going to the store and browsing slowly...But if you think you are a shopaholic then starting limiting your intake of advertisements somewhere. We can't help that they're all over the streets (unless we're hermits) but I think we should have control over our lives in terms of exposure.
So that was my two cents of the day. Got something to share?
