Shopping Blues

I'm sitting here wanting to go out and shop but I'm going to stay put. I need to get out of the habit of retail (or thrift) therapy. I've noticed that when I have alot of things that need to be done. I distract myself with shopping--thrifting is the best because I can be busy for hours. Instead of shopping for items that I need and doing things that keep me on the straight and narrow. Such as buying groceries, cooking and saving leftovers for the rest of the week so I don't have to buy outside food. It less expensive, healthier and it tastes better, too. I just need to stop the impulse shopping and buying when I don't need.  There are some things that make me curse at my shopping ban like these zippered Jeggings from Lane Bryant , I almost died! LB isn't usually on top of it like that, very rarely do I get very excited about things over there. I may make an exception for these jeggings, I have a LB gift card that's burning a hole in my pocket and I can wear the jeggings winter, summer, fall, spring. I'll think about it, they are sold out online (except size 14/16) Hopefully they will still have some in the local stores if i do decide to get them at a later date.

Moving away from my shopaholic tendencies, making a lighter version of THIS chicken soup is on the agenda for the weekend.Other things to do are taxes, fasfa, putting in alot of MCAT study hours in. (I'm wayyy behind) and  my hair(washing, conditioning and redoing).
