I think it's time for another shopping ban. I did a "financial fast" several months ago and it was OK. I've been on an internet buying spree recently and it's gotten to the point where MoBob calls the UPS guy my "boyfriend."

My recent purchases are categorized as:
* stuff I've had on my "to buy" list for a long time, like replacing the bathroom rug
* new clothes, since I have to start wearing suits more often, and I wanted to take advantage of summer sales
* stocking up, like buying Swiffer supplies and a case of coconut milk

All of which I easily justify.

And a lot of stuff I've bought and then returned. Like these:

Yep. I guess if I'd bought the zipper dress I could've worn them together!

I might need a financial fast too. BKL went to the post office today and was surprised there were no packages for me. PayPal makes online shopping just too easy. And I have a bit of a makeup problem. And an Avon problem.

those shoes are beautiful, but they look really uncomfy.

I agree - PayPal and BillMeLater are the death of me.

I'm not really into heels so I found them uncomfy, but surprisingly the reviews were all positive. Plus they were on clearance.

But those are truly adorable shoes.

Maybe you can wait a month and re-order when they're on sale. ;)

They were on clearance - but just not meant to be, I guess!
