You know the time when you know you don't need 'the thing' but you get it anyway, cuz,
- It's on sale!
- It's only an addition to the incomplete family of the other stuff you bought sometime back?
- You've been looking at it just a little too long everytime you've entered the store so it just speaks to you now?
- You got something that matches perfectly with this new thing?
- You're depressed so it's getaway?
- You just love clothes!
- You store-stalk! aka YOU'RE AN ADDICT!
So, I have been to Bangalore, Bangkok, skipped Pune/Bombay (thankgod?), Jodhpur, and Saket/VK in the past 30 days and have shopped like the world was coming to an end!
Ways to work with yourself :
- Carry a small pad on which you've made a note of all the stuff that you need. More importantly, FOLLOW IT!
- Do not sway!
- Make a pact to take a couple gaps of not shopping on every outing that you make to the mall.
- Find activities/hobbies around the mall that you like other than shopping if you like the mall so much!
- Take a friend/family member who HATES shopping to put you in your place when you need it.
- Write all the similar/same things you have, that way putting outfits together won't always mean you need to shop more!
- Colour coordinate your closet! Put all the same coloured things together so you don't have to rummage through a rainbow trying to find a non colour every morning.
- Don't carry any extra cash or credit cards for the next couple visits after any major slip-ups.
PS. Screw you Sukrit, did you really have to be so nice about picking the bags, helping with more options, queing up at the trial room/billing counter and parking money?!
|Addiction Symptom :1: You stuff all the bags to the brim just so you can fit them in one photo. : ||
|Addiction Symptom :2: Most of your clothes still have their tags on even though you've been out like crazy. : /|
|Addiction Symptom :3: You think you need to have shorts in all the 'nice' colours cuz it's summer. : @|
|Addiction Symptom :4: Cuz black never goes out of style? : O|
|Addiction Symptom :5: You buy a basic pink one the first time cuz your wardrobe needs 'colour' and the other two with a design next time cuz the trial line is a kilometre long and you're unsure how you'd fit!|
|Addiction Symptom :6: You shop for winter in the summer!|
