My name is Mrs. Jetplane and I am an addict...

Ok last week sometime, I said I'm swearing off shopping, and I have. But I am going to some ridiculous withdrawals.

JCrew is having a sale and I looked through it all last night and filled a shopping cart, but didn't purchase. They have smalls available, they never have smalls... But I didn't do it, but the cart is still full if I want to when I get home.

I ate lunch at Moe's connected to the mall, and didn't even go in. No I didn't tempt myself by taking a look at BCBG and ABS sales rack.

I haven't went to Target in almost 2 weeks, I'm literally dying here.

I did go to Walmart on Sunday and grocery shopped but didn't but anything other than groceries - not even a magazine.

I'm going to start getting the shakes from my withdrawals from shopping...

Help Mrs. Jetplane get through this, I don't think I'm going to make it.

FYI - Mr. is suppose to answer his questions tonight, so you'll have them tomorrow.

And holy crap, I'm almost to 300 posts. That's madness, I can't believe I have people that care about the life and times of the Jetplanes. I'm getting around 150 new visitors a day. That craziness. Thank you all so much for the love, but I'm greedy so keep it coming...

I need to think of a giveaway... oh crap, I have to shop then right???

Is there a patch or something for this....

LOL!!!! I hit 200 posts last week and I'm holding off until I decide on a great give away. I think I have an idea though!!! We should start a blogging/shopping support group since they seem to go hand in hand. :)

I visited jcrew.com this morning and put something in my cart even though I'm not supposed to be spending money this month. Then I kept browsing and then went to check out. The shirt was only $9.99 with an extra 20% off. Thats not really spending money! :) But it was no longer available even though I placed it in my cart!! I hate that J.Crew does not reserve an item once you place it in your cart. It hadn't even been 5 minutes!!! Thats probably a sign that I really don't need to be spending money!

Yikes! I am getting the shakes, too. With doggy surgery this month, shopping all of the incredible post holiday sales just hasn't been possible. It made me want to cry when I saw how cheap some of the cute dresses at BR were!!

You haven't gone to Target in 2 weeks! Boy I would die! I am no help. I just went to Target and they have so many new things! Good luck on your no shopping and try to hang in there!

Hahah. Be greedy all you want! That's what blogging is about.

Yay JCrew let us know what you buy! :)

I am addicted too! Spending way too much $$$. They should make a patch...great idea!

we're in the same boat!! i've limited my shopping to groceries only since january 1st. I'm seriously dying!!!

Mrs. Not-so-Domesticated said...

Way to hang in there! I can't even go near the mall...its too tempting.

I have a serious shopping addiction... it is BAD. I am an AE junky... now I am going to have to check out JCrew. The worst part is that I am an online junkie, easy access... SO BAD!

I'm the same as you, love to shop and will buy something anywhere just to buy something. My New Years Resolution was to only shop once a month and I can only spend less than $100. But if I do, I have to put $200 extra in savings. Well see how good that works out.

If you find the patch pass that sucker on to me!

You can do it! Be strong. JCrew.com sucks anyway, they were having website issues AGAIN(so I read on the JCrew Aficionada blog).

I feel your pain! The only thing I have bought so far this month have been things that I could purchase with a gift card...none of my own money! Stay strong!!

I flew right by my 200th post without even realizing it. I definitely think you should have a giveaway. It works for all of us: you get to shop and one of us will get something awesome. See, everyone is happy. :)
