Tell me I am not the only person who shops when they are tired? I know about the recommendation not to go food shopping when you are hungry, but why does no-one warn you about shopping when you are tired/cross/pre-menstrual/menstrual/post-menstrual/bored.
For me, it is lipsticks and skirts. Tired Kellie has expensive tastes that Well-Rested Kellie does not indulge. The minute I have less than 5 hours sleep, Tired Kellie whips out the credit card and starts browsing, AND BUYING. (Currently she is searching for a vintage leather backpack and metallic liquid lipsticks) I wouldn't mind, but perhaps I am tired because I'm working to pay for her last spree.
Emotional shopping is a bitch because it also comes with added guilt. You probably didn't actually want what you were buying but for that split second, it gives you a rush that soothes the fact that you cannot have what it is you actually WANT, like sleep. But then it arrives, and instead of enjoying it, you think, "WHY did I buy that?" and "What was I thinking?" or, "How many blue lipsticks can one woman own?" (That one might just be me)
So when are YOU a dangerous shopper? Is it when you are tired? or when you are upset?
and more importantly, should I buy THIS BAG?
I need a bag for college........... and a few new lipsticks.
Let me know
