Resisted The Urge

June 19th, 2016 at 04:16 pm

Okay...I know this sounds simple but shopping is a sort of addiction for me. I have the urge every so often to purchase things...things I don't need...like a bedroom set and a dining room set. I don't need these things but they sure would be sweet. I spent the afternoon looking at these things online and even picked out a few items that I liked. Rooms to go has a sweet no interest deal for 5 years. But then I remembered that I don't want another inquiry on my credit report and there is no guarantee that I would be approved. i do have the credit card with a local company buy they don't have that good of a deal. And I don't want another payment. I have done real good using my credit card and paying it off within a week, just using it to carry me over. So in the end, I closed the internet and didn't do anything. I know this seems like something that should be so easy, but for me it isn't that simple. That is how I got into this mess to begin with, causing me to get a second job. I want to quit my second job soon...and I can't do that if I add more debt. So common sense won!

Oh...I met with the plastic surgeon and I am more confused than anything. He said that he didn't think that he could get enough tissue out of my breasts for the insurance to be willing to pay for it. But if I did a lift, it would make me smaller. But if they don't take anything out, how would I be smaller? I just don't understand. I am a size GG and he doesn't think they can get enough out??? He is sending the appeal to the insurance but doesn't expect it to be approved. So I probably won't be able to do anything since I can't pay for it out of pocket.

    You could get a second opinion on the surgery.

    Great job resisting!!

    Good for you resisting the temptation! I know several people with shopping addictions, and they've really made a wreck of their lives.

    I agree with CCF to talk to another doctor. I suppose he means a lift would make you LOOK smaller. I don't think it would help with the pain issues.

    Thank goodness you were able to do the right thing and not go into more debt for all that furniture! You dodged a bullet for sure.

    Good for you for making a healthy choice for yourself! I think it is a very big deal to say no to temptation and you did it - woo hoo! maybe you could start saving tiny amounts towards something that you really want to buy so that it won't be an all or nothing proposition that might lead you to splurge in the future if you feel completely deprived? I agree about getting a second opinion on the surgery since what you heard didn't make sense to you. good luck!

    Glad you resisted temptation. There's something exciting about buying something new, but then there's the reality of paying for it.

    I concur on the second opinion. Hope it works out!

    I do that all the time! I go online or in a store and browse and then I am able to step away and do something else.

    I have an issue with books and cheap stuff. So what I do is fill my chart with whatever I think it is I'll need and then at the end I go through the cart evaluate everything and put away what I don't need.

    It let's me do that action sort of thing but then stops me from overspending.

    Last weekend I did this but some of the stuff I thought would work is not going to so I have to return a number of items to the store. Oh well though. I'm doing better a lot better than I was. Slowly slowly getting back to the big picture.

    I used to have a second job until recently. I def don't want to have to go back there. It's good motivation to stop myself from doing that as well!!
