Back in the day when credit cards were our best friends did you have a weakness in spending?

Even before my days of getting a credit card(s), my weakness was shoes and boots. I thought nothing of spending 1/2 my paycheque on a pair of shoes or boots that I liked. All my bills were paid but I never had any savings. Now I still like my shoes but I'm a bit more controlled on which ones I buy. And garage sales are more of a weakness now. Although I'm getting better at leaving things at the yard sales these days.

Hi,
For me my weakness has been thrift stores & garage sales - my budget is tight right now due to that (so I'm returning to the Ivillage boards hoping that gets me back on track).

I've gotten better then I was about clutter however, my son has the bug now and at ten yrs old he seems to be affecting household spending more then I'd like. The Polish side of my family has a hoarding gene & my son seems to have gotten it :)
