    I used to be, I’d go through phases and it would generally be according to my mood. Now I am tight with my money perhaps because I don’t have much of it while I look for a job lol.

    Yes I am but if I stay out of stores I dont have a problem.

  3. Erin says:

    I can but thankfully it’s few and far in between. I am the thrifty one which is good as Hubs is the spender!

    Sometimes – it depends where I’m shopping and how much time I have. It’s been a while since I could really “browse” – something about toting two tots everywhere. But, there’s always online shopping to make up for that . . . .

    I am very cheap, but there are a couple areas where I tend to go overboard if given a chance.

    Oh Darryl, what will I do with you?? LOL!!! If I stay out of stores I’m still not okay with the Internet!!

    I am but I’m not. I buy a lot of junk!! I get things for my kids and stuff like that. When it comes to something expensive, I think about it for a long time. My latest “big” thing was a Bose wave radio with iPod and CD player, I thought about it and looked at a lot of them before I hit “finalize sale.” Just so you know, I love it.

    The time I spent as a single mom made it so that I am not an impulse shopper. When money is tight you have to really plan where it goes.

    Not usually but it really depends on my mood.. Sometimes I just can’t help myself and thats the truth..

    Only in Truck stops driving across country non-stop between 2 and 4 AM.

    Fortunately,
    1. I do not drive across country none stop very often.
    2. When I do, I am so busy filling a gallon coffee mug and going to the rest room I am not a serious threat to anyone or even myself.
    3. The three foot handle on the window scrapper is awkward in a Honda Civic, but a constant reminder- don’t do that again.

    Nope. I’m not big on shopping period. I used to get ‘caught up in the moment’ bidding on ebay, however. I’ve learned to control that impulse. lol!

    I suck 😦 . I weigh every purchase TOO carefully. Sometimes to just sillyness. So rarely do I impulse buy. Maybe I should try it once in a while… 🙂

  11. Jane says:

    I’m with you Amber. I am way to frugal to do this kind of buying. Sometimes I wish I could but I don’t even like to buy a can of pop at a gas station if I’m going home and have it there.

  12. Sue says:

    I am but not also. For the most part, I look at something many times before I buy it and wait for it to go on sale! Some things though are too hard to resist!

    Only when it comes to yarn, fabric and books, not necessarily in that order. Nothing else tempts me in an impulse-buy sort of way.

  14. Ali says:

    I’m a terrible impulse shopper. If I’m shopping for something, I end up buying something completely different. Or if I want something, I want it right now. I will go from store to store so I can get it NOW. If I can’t find it, I’ll just get something else and then be mad at myself.
