now and I need to stay here because of finances. Anyway I am so tempted lately even though I know I cannot buy anything. It is like I am on some horrible drug and I need a fix ur something. Gosh I really need to stop thinking about diapers. I really cannot afford any. I must not think of diapers. I must not think of diapers. I must not think of diapers. I must not think of diapers. I must not think of diapers. I must not think of diapers.

Not just to build our stash now, but later to get some quality "new" stuff I' lookin' around for ways to finance the drug of choice - DIPES!

Hmmmmmmmm I don't think hubby needs this any more, wonder how much I could get for it on eBay? Hmmmmmm (Get my drift? I'm sooooo feelin' your pain!)

I JUST went on the wagon and I feel your pain--very, very deeply. It is very hard. I promised NOT even if my faves stock. I am able not to buy as long as my favorites do not tempt me, but now I cannot even fall prey to that.

Some of us need a new hobby--a free one perhaps
Any ideas?

I can already tell this is going to be a long hard journey for me.Yesterday was my first official day of not buying any diapers and I already want to cave.I know I should be happy with all I have already but there is some compulsive desire to keep buying.

Very good point. Very good point. You need to open a shop so when I come visit my mom and dad I can see your diapers in person

I know it's hard but we can do it! I made one purchase (I haven't bought anything in ages it seems) and now I want to buy everything in sight! So I'm taking it item by item and justifying my lack of need for it!

So, last night it was a hundred things it seems and I wanted the BaaBaaSheeShee rainbow soaker on Ebay (Buy It Now button) but I made myself slow down and think. I took a better look at it, I looked at it on Shan's boy, I talked to myself and reminded myself of the drawer FULL of barely used wool (thanks to the season) and then congratulated myself on not needing it! Once I decided I didn't *need* it I just kept praising myself and telling me how proud I am of me and how good it feels not to scramble to find the money/sell something or worry about what it might effect or buyers remorse! I often remind myself that when I do have the extra money I can always email that seller for a custom later.


And all day long I've been doing the same thing with food (unless I'm actually hungry).. I keep saying, "Nothing tastes as good as thin feels!". Ok, if I wasn't rambling before I am now.. I'm soo tired!

That is me
I think that is very funny really. I went to HS in Spfd. Seems so long ago, lol. They live outside the city--not so much in the city. I actually will be visiting 2 weeks in the end of July. Gotta balance the the city with some country. DS loves it out there more than anything else. And I live to make him happy! Last time I was there I thought of you as I brought a few too less fitteds--it worked but not too fun! I would love to see the dipes. I would never look at any mess (I am a mom, I cannot see it if I so choose). I will have to let you know

Right, um, no.. BUT I only started my mantra this afternoon (one step at a time)! I even tried freezing the chocolate and only found myself eating it frozen.. finally I unthawed it because it's better unthawed and if I was just going to eat it I might as well enjoy it properly! :LOL

I'm jumping on too. I really need to save money for the Elbee order. Plus we have enough dipes to do every other day washing.

It really can be hard. I am hoping a week away from the computer will help. But we will be using disposables so I doubt it will help much. I will just be dreaming of cloth while we are gone.

Good luck ladies.

Kathleen, I know your pain. I remember it killed me when I had to stop. However, now here I am building a stash for #7. I know a lot more now and I am not in so deep that I can't make educated decisions right now - hopefully once the real fever hits (and I know it will) I won't go beserk.

Gosh I hear you all... diapers, chocolate.... ALL OF IT!
I've been very good about staying on the wagon - well there was an elbee on the TP that called my name but I've seen lots of FCB and I've been able to resist. (But I broke down and had a choc covered pretzel stick for breakfast
: )
Maybe we should start an ON THE WAGON tribe - hee hee...
We could get our fix by stalking for others... And maybe we could make commissions to buy US some dipes after awhile!
