Christmas in july, this is what I’ve found written all over the mall.
The message was clear and spending money had to be the amswer, its like a subliminal message that spread trough my veins because sales are here girl, so i need to go spending!
Necessary of course, i need the clothes, the shoes are waiting for me, the beautiful purse I saw in the window is screaming get me .. get me..
Slowly I am beginning to feel brainwashed and am spending money, just to wake up in the morning to see I have nothing to wear.
I think the subliminal message did its part and I’m not immune at it. So then I asked myself
Is there a real need to spend so much time and cash on clothes where are on sale? Yeah. No. No, definitely NO
You’ll get yourself frusutrated and depressed and undoubtly..overborke. The only good and precise solution I found is to keep my credit card frozen,like in that movie, just to maintain sanity. My shopping addiction got with it again today.
And I need some meditation to ask myself why, why this society (that I blame for the vast area of products) is so cruel and capitalistic. Maybe the dark ages of comunism were not so bad after all, we all had the same fashion sense and trend..which came in the shades of grey .
From now on im on a bugetary diet. I am learning how to say stop on shopping.
I imposed myself restrictions on spending, mostly because I need it, but the goal matters not the needs.
But the fact is now I think life is more than fashion trends (and please do not throw with rocks at me).
From now on I’ll think twice before spending on anything, including socks.
I find it easy to have a friend by my side before entetring a mall, it is really important someone to keep eyes on you.
Here is the truth about some fashion trends and fashion sales.
Sometimes retailers make us spend more becase they invent fashion trends. A good pare of jeans will never get out of style. The truth being told, sometimes fashion trends are a bit crazy, but women always follow them.
If you need to spend avoid hge labels, go somewhere small and get a good price. And again, where are sales don’t spend money on clothes taht will be out of fashion next year.
How many times have you as I did, walked for so much time, only after to feel exhausted and sleepy? Well that is the main purpose of the retailer, get out-get there-dont go home-just shop.
If you feel your spending is so out of control that you can’t wrestle with the problem alone,the only advive I can give is to seek out counseling or therapy. Or try to follow my simple rules.
I am hopeful I’ll get where I need to be and you can too. That’s a statement!
