I'm Grounded.

Ms. N Ms. N
I think I have a problem...I just counted, and I have made 14 orders in 3 1/2 months this year. I have made three in the past week alone! I think it is time to ground myself. No more orders for six weeks (until June), no matter how tempting the sales are! I will just save my points, and then I can get something big later on.

Do you ever feel the need to restrict yourself from buying here? What's the longest you have ever been able to last without spending anything (cash, gift cards, or points)? This would not include your monthly free assignments, just anything you "purchase" in one form or another.

Two weeks. I have not been able to go beyond that and not have new items. Or the sales are too good to wait!!

Yes I am grounding myself now. I was going to place another order after I got up my points to get some stuff that came back in stock and I had to stop myself. The erason I stopped myself is because of this new Smart post shipping now it is taking longer for my orders to get to me I had to wait a week until I got my first order and the next won't be here until probably Monday. I hate the Smart post crap. I wish they were the same as when I first joined the site. I will wait to save until I can order and do it thru UPS, I just hope the stuff I want is in stock then.

I need to 'ground' myself, too. I have 9 reviews I still need to do, and I just placed another order yesterday for like 10 more products! Gah! No more for a while.
04/15/2012
GONE! GONE!
Well, I'm kind of grounding myself right now because I have reviews to finish. Goodness knows I want to take advantage of the current sales though.

Girl! I think it's past grounding time, you need spanked! Ha Ha. I'm only kidding, promise. Hey, it's nice that you took some time to think about yourself. I don't think it's a bad idea to take a break for a couple weeks, but it's not a huge deal. Don't beat yourself up about it. I just splurged BIG time! Lol. I bought Zini Deux a few days ago (I'm about to go mad waiting for the darn shipment!) and I believe it costed 130 something just for Deux plus stinkin' tax. Lol. Yes, I am a tight wad!

6 weeks! You are grounding yourself for 6 weeks? That's too long. Lol. Maybe make your goal shorter that way you don't go crazy when you're finally... un-grounded. Lol. Maybe just limit yourself to one order every month? Or set a price limit.

I usually don't have a problem spending too much, but I've wanted Deux for so long that I decided it's about time! Save your points for something big, like you said, that will help. You won't be so frustrated when you want something now. You'll just realize you're saving for something big and maybe the wait won't hurt so bad

I only purchase if I really want something, which is often, but I try to even it out. I've always felt really guilty for spending $ on myself. BAD! But when I've worked really hard, I'll buy it without guilt. I feel as if I somewhat deserve it then. Also, I don't make outrageously huge purchases. I will purchase a few items at once, but I like to be sure that it is something I ACTUALLY want

I buy as soon as I have enough stuff in my cart to get free shipping! I just can't wait any longer than that >.>

I'm trying to hold off right now so that I can get a big shipment of gifts for my gal pals (bunch of birthdays in the next two months) and it's so difficult!

I never ground myself. I haven't kept track, but I don't make quite as many orders as some. I go through phases though - for a few weeks I'll be ordering like a mad woman, and then I'll take a break to catch up on reviews and replenish the ol' gift card stock. Then it's back to the fun!

Haha, I "ground" myself all the time. I place a relatively large order, and since I like to review everything I get I try not to place another order until I've managed to review just about everything I have. I'm getting better at it.

When did it stop because my last two orders have been this way. I placed a order on Friday the 6th and of course since the weekend it did not go until Monday and I was supposed to get it Wednesday and I did not get until Saturday the 14th. I also did another one on Monday the 9th and I should have got it Friday the 13th and I did not. So it will not be here till Monday. If it is not SurePost then what is it? When I first signed up I was getting my stuff within the two days.

I ground myself if I have any assignments that need reviewing, but it never takes too long! Even if I grounded myself there would be steady flow of things from my husbands account coming in so I would be just fine.

I ground myself all the time! I make it a point to only do one order per month...sometimes two if I'm really tempted. This is for budgetary reasons and because I have to walk to the post office to pick up my orders which is just a hassle.

I have made it almost a week! *lol* It is hard when I get the email alerts of things that I want that are back in stock or on sale!

I need to start grounding myself.
I think I'm going to start saving up to a certain limit of points before I allow myself to buy anything. xD

Because of the cost of shipping, I usually have to wait quite a while between orders to make sure I can cover the cos of what I want, and the cost of shipping.

And I have only recently been buying luxury items, I have to wait all the while longer!!! But as soon as I have enough points to place the order for the item I have my eye on it's MINE!!!

I have ordered 16 times in one month. I do need to save my points, but the sales get me too. I want a damn Vr12!

I ground myself when I still have items to review that haven't been tested yet... once I test something twice and am working on a review for it then I consider myself good again

I'm grounded right now. I grounded myself for this month for budget reasons. Next month after going over the budget, I'll see if I need to extend it. Whew! What a relief, I thought I was the only one who grounded themself!

It's UPS Innovations. I'm not entirely sure what the difference is. I'll check into it for you.

It is ok Stormy this order I just placed I used the UPS ground delivery atleast I know it will get here faster. But the regular shipping used to take a couple days and now it is taking forever. I will just use the UPS ground from now on.

*giggles* I have made it two weeks now. It seems like forever! But when I decide to order again, I will have enough saved up that I can buy whatever I want. I looked to see what the most expensive item on Eden is. It seems to be Olga. I don't know if I will go as far as to spend that much, but it will be nice to have the option

I've placed 15 orders since the start of 2012.

I think about grounding myself from time to time, but grounding myself just doesn't sound like fn.

Why don't you try USPS Priority instead? My orders only take two days transit time, order Monday morning and delivery on Wednesday - always on time.
