I'm dying here! This is my first really 'long term' ban. I'm determined to make it through the holidays without purchasing ANY (...save for the two I acquired right around the very beginning of my 'ban'. But those don't count...my resolve wasn't in place yet ). Naturally, I may add one or two to my Christmas Wish List...but that's another story. I don't think I've gone more than perhaps 30 days (if that) without purchasing a new bag since my handbag Condition started. Every time a red Elisha pops up I just groan. If a NWT brown Parker pops up I will have to ask my family to lock me out of my own computer. I will definitely have to do so after the next sample sale as I'm afraid to see what ends up on eBay! Has anyone imposed a ban and then really stuck to it? Does it get easier? I have not broken my habit of surfing sites to stare at the gorgeous bags wistfully. Don't know that I can! I'm going to have to get one of those countdown bars.... Ack!!!
