I am feeling depressed. I went to the mall and there was a 50% off sale and I spent $120.00. Then I went to bath & body and spent $40. My husband knows I bought stuff but he doesn’t know what I spent. The bag is in my closet. We’re living on a fixed income because we’re retired. I see the word sale and I have to spend. I’m a guilty mess.

@bamw I haven't given up on you and I won't give up on anyone in this forum. Shopping addiction recovery takes time and there will be ups and downs, but all we can do is pick ourselves up and move forward with determination and the will to change and hold ourselves accountable. I hope that you have a great weekend!

Thank you You’re my “rock “. I hope that’s okay. It’s a struggle but it’s a new day and I haven’t bought anything. I almost did but a friend asked me if I already have a lot of pocket books so then I put it back. It was very tempting though. I’ll try to stay strong.


@bamw Thank you for your kind words- you can do it and good for your friend for intervening and suggesting that you don't need another pocketbook! Those pocketbooks are tempting, but I believe you can resist. Today is a new day.
