Good for you --you'll find that it helps bunches. There is so much info on these sites that if you don't start taking notes and making plans, they'll just find you slumped in a puddle of drool. There are so many things that I thought I wanted, but after four months here it's like, nah, not for me. BTW, this forum (Credit Cards) can be particularly dangerous in the rebuilding stages! Stick to your guns. :smileywink:

It's not actual shoes, its a picture of shoes.

:-) Yeah, I was wondering if anyone would think less of me for working on this at work... I think many people here understand my obsession, at least in the beginning...right? :-)

Re: I fell off the wagon...and so soon.

There is no way that I could hang a pair of Jimmy Choos on my fridge. The SO would FLIP Because I would have to have bought them and he knows how much they cost. Besides, that it would be just plain weird, even though I do have everything but the kitchen sink on there! hehe

I walk past the Jimmy Choo store in the Galleria and get excited because I can't wait until they go on sale for being "out of season." I love it when they are 60% off-- It's like finding gold!!

I may have splurged on an $80 lipstick but Jimmy Choos are a whole different ball game !
