When I would go to the mall, I would park far away and leave my purse in the car. If I thought I wanted something, I would have to walk all the way to my car and back. Most of the time it was not worth the trip back.
When it was a MUST HAVE, I had no problem going to the car and back. This really help me eliminate unnecessary shopping

A friend of mine once said: "You might want it, but do you really need it?"
Yes, she said it when I was 14 years old and I wanted a pair of fluorescent neon pink platform heels which were actually awful! BUT that quote has stayed with me ever since she said it. I am still a shopaholic, everyone that knows me would agree, but sometimes I think of this and realise not to take it to far :)
