I dont really shop so much anymore. A few years back I did go shopping a lot and would spend about 100 in one trip. To control my self I started to leave my credit cards and debit card at home and only carry about 30-40 dollars in my wallet for spending or emergency. It worked for me  :thumbsup:

I shop at thrift stores. It is like a HUGE indoor yard sale. There is so much variety and the prices keep me out of trouble. Also, by the time I have looked through EVERYTHING- especially the wonderful clothes racks, I am pretty much too exhausted to go to another store. There are many charity thrift stores out there, as well as individually owned ones.

before we go to shopping everyweek, then after we changed to go shopping every 2 weeks, and every time we spent like 30-50 dollars, it works. the only thing is I don't keep the money, my husband keep them!

hmm......., its fine if u jus spend 30-40 dollars. But i spend 200-300 dollars at one time shopping. i really feel so bad why i cant control on it. My husband keeps monthly budget in my pocket. He never ask me where i am spending money.  :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P

I think it helps to stay home. Only go to the store when you need something. Also go to stores that only have the things you are looking for. Such as if you need groceries. Go to a grocery store instead of a large superstore with multiple sections. You won't be able to stray much from what you need. Give yourself an allowance in cash for the week. When it is gone you can't buy anything else that week.
