Because, like an alcoholic in an open-bar wedding reception, I am currently in the thralls of wanting to buy stuff.
|Maybe while I'm here I will witness a murder and suddenly look like Grace Kelly?|
No stuff in particular, just anything. I have some photos to pick up at the drugstore, and I was thinking about maybe biking over there and, while in the neighbourhood, picking up something from the grocery store (I probably need some groceries, right?) and while I'm there, maybe veering into the Joe Fresh clothes area, where clothes are cheap anyway and blah blah blah.
|Whoever decided to sell affordable and cute clothes in a grocery store is a DIABOLICAL GENIUS|
The good news is that I can recognize that I'm in this mood and I can trap myself in here. I just need to avoid stores until, let's be honest, I eat supper. I think hunger and buying unnecessary things are very connected in my brain.
The internet is obviously dangerous BUT not in June because I am verboten from making online purchases. This is tricky business, too. I can just not go into physical stores, in order to avoid buying stuff. However, the internet is like a LANDMINE of advertisements from stores such as ModCloth or the Pretty Things Boutique. And due to crafty marketing, the websites I frequent are filled with ads aimed DIRECTLY at me.

So, I need to either develop willpower or find some sort of ad-blocking app. I already have a pop-up blocker, but is there a way to not have to look at ads when you're on the internet? Or maybe I can get some sort of blinders or... something?
