So I've recently started a self-imposed ban until I pay off my student debt (about $10 grand Canadian) which means I can't buy any more bags. In the last two weeks I went on a splurge buying Chanel and LV because I graduated from university and I'm working full time making a bit of money. But my mom is starting to pester me about making my payments, and although I don't have to pay anything until November, interest is growing and I want to pay it back as soon as possible. However since 10 grand is a lot, I'm sure it will take me at least a year or two to pay it all off, and I don't think I can go for that long without buying a new bag. I'm such an impulsive shopper and when I want something, I always get it if I can afford it. So being on a ban will be really hard. My question for those who are on bans, how do you not give in to temptation?
