Shopping addiction...

Well, admitting you have a problem is the first step...right? I confess - I am addicted to shopping...well, not just to shopping in general, but BARGAIN shopping. Searching, rummaging, lurking, hovering, etc. for a good deal on any item (but mostly shoes and clothes) gives me such a rush...and a deal on designer labels...well, I don't even think there are words to describe that feeling...whether it is a pair of Nine West shoes for me, Gap jeans for Sara or Ralph Lauren underwear for all feels the same...ultimate satisfaction.

I am not even ashamed to admit that one of the first places I go to in almost any store is straight to the clearance rack! I LOVE it...the rush of finding "it". And I prefer to shop alone - other people just slow me down - I can sometimes spend hours in just one store. I like what I like - and I don't need someone talking me in or out of buying something.

I often wander over to the infant section to see what deals I could have gotten if we knew the age/sex of our new little one and I just die when something is a really really good deal and I have to walk away...just torture and so unfair. However, sometimes I just can't help it and buy for my friends children - I just can't leave such a good deal for someone else. Chad better confiscate my credit card after we get "the call" - retailers will not know what hit them when I am through with them!!!

It is nice to be able to shop. I've asked for a girl, so it helps because I can buy things in bigger sizes. She's already pretty well stocked until kindergarten. I've cut myself off though. You can see that I've already bought enough!

I used to hate shopping. Absolutely despised it. Go in, get what I need, get out as fast as I can. Then I adopted my son and loved shopping for him before he came home. Now I really enjoy shopping ... and same thing, preferably alone.

You need to teach me some details on how to find the best bargains and what stores are good for it. :)
