Everytime i go shopping, i end up with not  even a penny with me.

I have countless clothes, still i want more; have 13 pair of shoes, that is far from enough ;

How can i quit my impulsion of shopping??

I hope your bf or husband doesn't get too angry with you due to your compulsion. Maybe, give your ATM cards and passbooks to a very trusted friend (they don't need to know your ID #s) and tell them to give you a small allowance weekly might help. The thing to do is identify why you want more. If it's security or face, all you're doing is taking away yout financial security and if it's face, probably, folks around you will know you can't really afford what you buy but will pity you because of your compulsion. Good luck in solving the problem. If all else fails, you can find a counsellor maybe.

Thanks for ur advice, ill try some of them.
I think the most effective way is not to go downtown or fashionable shopping area
then i wont get the chance to be crazy about those fantastic costumes!

My bf is not angry with me cuz i dont spend his money.

i also like shopping as you,but you are so more crazy than me!
maybe my money is so limited what cn't afford me to buy so many things.
a good way for you to control,if you went out,don't take so much money with you,so when you want to buy something,you will find the money is not enough

I plan to go shopping once per month, than i can save even more!

Usually i go shopping every weekend which became a very bad habit long time back.
