I love shopping.  Banana Republic is my vice.  I frequent the craft stores as well.

I don’t think I’m a shopaholic in the traditional sense… but I do have an addiction to ordering too much food when we eat out, just so I can pick around at different things. I hate eating just one thing. Maybe it’s cause I’m Chinese and I’m used to eating family style. Luckily I love leftovers so It’s ok.

I am pretty good about not shopping a lot, but it is also bad, because when I do need something, I rarely get a good deal. I just go to anthropologie and buy whatever is there, whatever the price, and I only go to Anthro because it’s 2 blocks away and I’m too lazy to go any farther to buy anything.

Hello, my name is happilywaiting and I am a shopaholic….

My Big Three are Target, Lowe’s and The Gap….sigh…I do love Ikea but thank goodness our closest store is a bit of a hike so I don’t do as often as I would like.

I have a major addiction to etsy, anthro, gilt groupe, and bluefly. Sigh. Not convenient to have this problem when you’re a starving grad student.

Most of the time I’m good about not shopping, but every now and then I get on a shopping kick and absolutely have to buy buy buy. I’m going to have to break the habit very soon, though. Mr. Bunny and I have a pact to reform our spending habits after we get married next weekend!

I just got back from the mall…

Total shopoholic.

The wedding has both helped and hurt my addiction. I am always shopping, but for the perfect thing- that seems to take forever to find!!

I am a total shopaholic!!!!  Take a look a my profile if you don’t believe me 

It is the biggest rush for me to shop a sale at my favorite store and add up all of the orignal prices vs. what I paid.  If it’s not at least a 70% savings I get disappointed.

My favorite store is Ross Dress For Less.  I got a pair of Not Your Daughter’s jeans there recently for $40 (retail is usually well over $100). I love that place, always great finds.

I’m an online shopping addict, because I have ZERO patience for the legwork that it takes to shop in the malls- I hate digging through stuff to find what I want! My faves: Anthropologie, Revolve Clothing, Tobi, Luna Luz, Ebay, Gilt, RueLaLa, Hautelook, Gomatta Girls, and Sephora (that’s a baddy right there, lol)

Shoes are the worst for me, I looooathe shoe shopping, so I tend to just order off of Ebay or Zappos. 

I will go into Marshalls or TJMaxx to find sunglasses and beauty stuff though- found a $400 pair of Tom Fords the other day for $69.00

I’m an online shopaholic.  I absolutely hate going to the store, unless it’s Target.  My vice is usually Amazon.  That place can sell me anything!

I love shopping & do it all the time.  I am trying to cut back, but it’s proven to be quite difficult.  oops!

This summer, my drug of choice has been JCrew & Gap.  It’s kinda sick.  At least Gap isn’t too expensive…sigh

Don’t even get me started on things for the home…now THAT is really bad.

I hate shopping. Hate hate hate.

(My fiance loves it. XD)

My favourite kind is grocery shopping because I get food and free nibbles and there are NO CHANGE ROOMS, hah. =D But I still don’t like it because I have to be all responsible and not get all the things I want (ooh! a coconut! ooh! a prickly pear! ooh! chips! ooh! jalepeno poppers! etc.)

I am weird.
