Ok, so I posted a thread on how I'm not going to not be on here "as much" and to not spend $ on bags right now... so I decided that I think I should "ban" myself from bags for a little while... anyone with me on this? I'm going to set a particular month until I can get a bag again... I'm going to ban myself until at least June (because thats when PCE is :graucho:) so ne one else want to be on this ban w/me until June?? I'm making my signature signify this so that I can keep reminding myself this everyday...

OK, sounds reasonable. Don't feel sad, you have some great bags. ;) It's ok to look at other people's and realize that you can only carry one at a time anyway. I think I also got a little obsessed at first, but I am trying to be reasonable.

Well, I wouldnt go so far as banning myself, but after my satchels, I really dont forsee loving anything enough to purchase it until maybe the fall.(although an August vacation to Disney will definitely include an outlet trip, since I dont have one close by at all!) However even when I dont plan on buying lots of stuff, this board is still helpful. I wouldnt have even tried to go to TJ Maxx this morning, and here I am w/my 79.99 holy grail black wallet, so its ok to read, just dont be influenced to buy from everyone's purchases.

ok, after I pick up my signature stripe wristlet from MAcys that I pre-sale on april 30th I will be on a ban too. I definitely need to be on a ban if I am going to have any money or gift cards saved for my vacation in july where I will have access to 2 outlets ! I am going to try to stick to it too and also limit my time on TPF.

I almost feel like doing this (actually, I DO feel like doing this), but I'm not going to lie, lol! I do intend to purchase for F&F (already have a small item reserved), and also I'm taking an outlet trip around the end of the month. I know I'm sure to purchase stuff then too. But after the PCE (IF I get one, and I guess even that's uncertain), I'm going to try my best not to purchase anything else for a while unless I absolutely have to have it.

For sure I will say I'm banning purchases at retail price from the boutiques, especially if I don't get the coupon this time. Purchasing retail is only hurting me anyway, and all it does is give me the bag a bit sooner than if I waited for Ebay, outlets, or other sales. I'm ashamed of myself that I've purchased this much stuff as of late directly from the boutique...at least 4 bags just in the past couple of weeks!! Not to mention a few other little goodies too. Just terrible!! :shame:

Thank you for posting this, because thinking about all of this carefully this morning has really been a wake up call for me!!

O no problem bag... it was a wakeup call for me this morning too when my boyfriend kind of made me realize i'm getting a little too carried away in the COACH area... haha... i mean i realized it, but i just think i had to have my boyfriend tell me that just to assure me that i really have an addiction just even looking and talking about bags in general... i think its driving my boyfriend CRAZY! :wtf:.. LOL
