Do you buy anything compulsively?

I am a compulsive book buyer.  I can't help it.  I try and check books out of the library too but there's something about buying a book that is very satisfying.  My mom says she likes coming to my house because it's like a mini Barnes and Noble.  She can look through my books and select what she wants--I don't charge her though :)

Yeah, I love buying books too.  I buy a bookmark for each book because i don't like to fold down the corners of my pages.  I keep the bookmark in it in case other people borrow a book from me.....then they know they have to use the bookmark.

Other things that I buy compulsively is stuff for sewing.  I have fabric that I have to use and bought it for new reason but because i liked the fabric.

No, not really. Maybe clothes for my son. I do love buying him clothes.

TOILETRIES! I am so incredibly guilty of this, I can't go down an aisle containing hair products,, bodywash, make-up, lotions, toothpastes, you name it...I will find at least one thing to buy, if not too many! embarrassed

I am a horriable compulsive shopper.  You name it, I have bought it before and tons of it.  Food, clothes, shoes, dvd's, candles, toys, etc.  I'm just not really good at sticking to a list or budget. lol

I love to shop but I do not buy anything big on compulsion. I actually drive my husband nuts because I will enter a store like Target and start putting things in the cart and as I walk around I will talk myself out of my purchases and put them back, hubby says Im ridiculous. When i bought my Kindle from Amazon...i just couldnt push the purchase button and was waiting and waiting..finally my husband walks from across the room and pushes the mouse button..then says THERE!!

I am a compulsive clothing buyer, for my girls. Weither it is on sale or not. If it is cute and the store has it in their sizes, I buy it. But I have try to control it now as it is getting alittle bit expensive.

 NO, I always think about what bill I can apply that extra money toward. I hate having the interest on anything sitting there. So if I can avoid that, I send in more money than needed and have that sitting there to be credited to the next bill.
