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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: Disgruntled ex-hyena!!!

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!<br><br>
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!) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

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.<br><br>
Some of us need a new hobby--a free one perhaps <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> 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 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

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!<br><br>
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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
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!

the real question is if any of the Fazer chocolate is still left in your house. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/biglaugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="laugh">:

That is me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> 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<br><br>

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.<br><br>
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.<br><br>
Good luck ladies. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

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!<br>
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 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: )<br>
Maybe we should start an ON THE WAGON tribe - hee hee...<br>
We could get our fix by stalking for others... And maybe we could make commissions to buy US some dipes after awhile! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rotflmao">

Me too. I've slipped a couple of times, but overall I've been really good. And it's really hard!!! I sure do miss my fluffymail!
