The first step is admitting I have a problem...
Ok, so what was supposed to be a BROWSING only trip to an LYS turned out to be a shopping spree. I stopped at one place and saw that "Celia" was on sale so I HAD to stock up. I didn't know if I'd run into it again at such a great price and I've been wanting to use it for a project anyway... When my 5 balls of yarn only rang up to $35 I was quite pleased. I figured I would stop there and go home. Wrong. Since there was another LYS several blocks up I figured, "Why not? I'm in the neighborhood" Of course they had a sale, too so I bought some yummy peach colored yarn and I don't even know what I'm going to make with it!!! I just liked how it looked. Then I snatched up a couple of magazines at the checkout counter. So, I ended up spending about $90 today for NO REASON! I need a support group!!!

Oh no, when you buy something on sale, you have PLENTY reasons for the spending. 1) You save money 2) You will have new stash 3) Someone will have something to wear 4) It makes you happy !

You go girl

I don't have a problem. I will not admit to having a problem. DH, give me your credit card!!!

Seriously, though -- it was on SALE!!! And I won't tell if you won't. LOL

The only problem I see is we didn't get to go with you to the sale.
Keep reminding yourself, this is great therapy
