    support the economy ..... go on a spending spree to satisfy your desires

    THEN after u see credit card bill any further impulse to shop will die very quickly

    I cleanse myself of such desire by meditating, practising Qigong, prayers, chanting, keeping pure and wholesome thoughts and a strict regime of vegetarian meals.

    If you're a guy, repeat to yourself "i'm not a girl. i'm not a girl. i'm not a female"

    if you're a girl, repeat to yourself "it doesn't matter... it doesn't matter.... my hubby/bf/mummy will pay for it.."

    I would buy a bigger dry cabinet

    to the TS :
    the only way to overcome this is through willpower.

    Stop going to malls, avoid online shopping sites etc.
    Spend your free time in doing community work, become a volunteer. It will also give you a sense of purpose.

    Cheers.
    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt....
