Compulsive online shopping

I was so happy to read this blog post today and it inspired me to share my little (guilty) pleasure.

I do my best to stay within my budget, especially during very “tight” circumstances however; one of my favorite things to do is to shop online.  Here is my trick:

I go through my favorite websites and fill my shopping cart as if I have an unlimited gift card.  This gives me the same rush as if I am actually shopping.

I close the browser & turn off my monitor for the night and go to sleep.

A few days later I get the urge to shop again, yet all of the sites I shop from automatically empty the cart after 24 hours (especially when I choose clearance items) and I don’t remember what I chose.

I know this may not work for everyone, but it works for me.
