I have an addiction… to shopping!

I don’t go crazy buying myself stuff, I hate buying stuff for myself, I always feel there’s a better use for the money. But I go just a little wild when it comes to buying clothes for the kids. I can’t help it. I see all these cute clothes and I think “Oh, Bella would look darling in that,” or “Zach loves those kinds of shirts,” or “Ryan would look so handsome in that.” I mean once I start buying them clothes I can’t stop! I have a feeling it goes back to when I was younger. We never had any nice clothes, we always got hand-me-downs from our cousins, and with me and my brother being the youngest in the family (not including my half-brother and sister since there’s a 7 year gap between the brothers and a 9 year one between me and my sister) everything was really worn by the time it got to us. So, I just love buying the kids new, nice clothes. Shoot, they dress better and have a bigger wardrobe than John and I. I just spent $200 on fall/winter clothes for Bella, no one else, just her. And before the 30% discount it was $300! And seeing as how John banned me from buying her anything else (she has a closet full of summer clothes she still doesn’t quite fit…) I have a feeling this might cause some issues. But she has no fall/winter clothes, so really this was a needed purchase…

  • Trish! I have the clothes sickness too! Let me guess you shopped at Baby Gap or Old Navy with the 30% off Give and Get coupon! I could be wrong but I’m guessing that because I did too!

    So what did you get?

  • lol. yup, I got the 30% off and went online shopping at Gap. Okay here’s what all I got (and I so couldn’t remember everything so I had to pull up my order lol)

    8 longsleeve onesies, 5 pairs of pants, 3 longsleeve shirts, 2 Halloween onesies, 2 sweaters, 1 hat, 1 dress, 1 short sleeve shirt, 1 denim skit overalls

    Really that’s not too bad in my opinion. Its a total of 6 whole outfits, 1 sweater/hat combo, another sweater, a dress, set of 3 white onesies and a set of 3 printed onesies, and two Halloween shirts. And she’ll be so cute in all of it! 😀

  • I wonder if we got some of the same things!! hee hee! I did an online order too….including some of the halloween stuff!

    I can’t resist a gap sale!

    Just so you know the jeans are going on sale on Monday, buy one get one for 10 dollars.

  • Oh and I think you did great for what you spent!!

  • OH MY GOD do I understand. Something about walking throught the store and seeing things for the kids makes it impossible to walk away… you can restrain yourself when it’s something for you, but when it’s the kids, oh gosh then you’re just sucked right in! One of my biggest weaknesses is the online shopping for kids stuff, if I’m scrolling through a walmart.com or a fargobaby.com … i just want to buy absolutely everything.

    I went nuts with my 30% off coupon too! I am the same way.. cannot buy anything for myself, but buy the kids 10x more than they will ever need.
