    I used to go crazy with online shopping.

    .. But I realized it was getting out of hand and I cut myself off... I don't do it nearly as much as I used to. There's just some emotional gratification you get from buying something. But I found other ways, better ways, to deal with my emotions. :)

    but THIS subject is something that always seems to rile him up a little. He hates how much money I spend, but I personally think that I don't buy anything more than what we need. I just buy a little too much of it. For example, if I go to the grocery store.. I'll buy 2 packs...
