Yesterday for the first time I shopped with an agenda in hand and completely stuck to it.I came back with load of goodies for my nieces and friend's kids. The strength of will-power! Not that I do not shop for family and friends but usually I rarely leave myself out.Shopping is primarily a way to vent out my feelings. I shop when I am happy.I shop when I am sad. My fluctuating emotions tend to tip the balance of my budget more often than once. I am an impulsive & compulsive shopper . Wonder what that means. However this was an amazing experience and an achievement in itself.
Also I do believe that whatever you give out you get back! My fingers are crossed!
