I make sure that I put product in a different place. It gives the workers something to do. :P Just kidding.

tweedee that is how I get in trouble with my credit cards. I have now turned over a new leaf (or rather a whole new book) and cut all my credit cards in half except for my debit card. I am a compulsive buyer if something really catches my eye, and I am at an age where I should be downsizing not expanding. I now have to find a way to get rid of that stuff I have and never used. My best friend in california and I would go shopping, put what we wanted in a basket, walk around the store and then an hour later pause and review the contents of the basket, then at the second thought would walk around the store putting everything back on the shelves, decided elimination could be fun too. Neither of us, we decided, needs anything except for a Gulf Stream and a vacation home in Europe, and cannot buy those at a department store. COmpulsive buying can be dangerous to the pocketbook.

When I'm stressed, I like to shop. So, when I know I'm particularly vulnerable, I only take cash and I limit the amount of cash I'm carrying to buy only what I need.

absolutely, I always put it back, especially if it is perishable. Rather rude to just put it anywhere.

i love to compulsion shop. that's half the fun, it's like a drug.
i do it every christmas, and for dw's birfday. i go to a mall, shop around a little, then go have an overpriced meal in the fanciest restaurant in the mall, a coupla expensive glasses of wine, and when i'm feelin good, i go spend spend spend. i love the look on her face when i give it all to her.

then i take out a lot of life insurance and drive to work really fast without a seat belt when the bills arrive....

i'm pretty good at impulse shopping, namely at the grocery store and clothes shopping. especially during sales. sometimes i return clothes, but only if it's something like $100 jeans that i already have a pair of.
this can become problamatic, seeing as to how you eventually run out of room; you don't have enough space to store things in anymore, the closests runneth over and you can't yank dresser draws and chest drawers open anymore cause they're too full, and if you're me, you end up with the 4, 18-gallon rubbermaid containers stuffed full of clothes, like i mentioned on another thread.
the grocery store... i just buy anything that looks cool, cheeses that look tasty, gorgeous steaks, anything.
but at olaces like bookstores and wal-mart, i'm much more thoruogh and non-impulsive; i like to weigh my choices. i'll page through book after book at the book store, and compare little things about products at wal-mart (paper-mate pens or BIC pens? blue ink or black ink?)
i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
& rock on, PITTSBURGH-
