The color scheme of my blog layout and my domain name are dead giveaways of what my favorite color is. Indeed, I am very much crazy over purple. I don’t know when it began or why it’s gotten to this point. What I do know is that I’ve loved the color ever since I was little, and now that I’m a grown-up, I try to satisfy my fetish by buying at least one purple item whenever I go shopping. It could be a pair of shoes, a purse, a dress, or even makeup.
Of course, I am fully aware that my shopping habits can be quite expensive. Believe it or not, I am trying my best to quell my obsession. Seeing purple items up close and personal can be a test of faith. It’s hard to convince myself not to get buy it when it’s already right in front of me. One of the solutions I discovered is to avoid shopping in malls as much as possible. It’s easier said than done. However, I am starting to learn not to grab the first purple item that catches my fancy anymore. When at the mall, I tell myself repeatedly to only get the items I need and not those that I want.
Another solution I discovered is to just shop online. Why is that? Well, when I find purple items online like this pair of shoes, for instance, I can just use net voucher codes to purchase the pair. In fact, no matter how many purple items I find online – shoes, purse, dress, accessories – I can easily find the right voucher codes for the items.
I find this second solution to my liking. I wouldn’t have to give up my fixation, and at the same time, I get to save some money from my purchases because of voucher codes. Whoever said shopaholics can’t be frugal spenders is definitely mistaken, well, at least not while there are websites that offer a plethora of discount voucher codes.
