What is Your Budget Buster?

Spring time is here, and I am so tired of winter clothing and shoes. It is taking all of my willpower to avoid buying one of my top budget busters: Shoes... like the ones pictured to the left from Nine West.

Everyone has a budget buster. My top budget busters are:
1. Shoes.
2. Hand bags.
3. Books (What can I say, I'm a nerd).
4. CD's (my iPod is broken so I am going old school until I save the money to replace it).
5. H&M, Ann Taylor Loft, Forever 21, Banana Republic and other stores that sell reasonably priced but cute clothing.
6. Comcast On Demand movies (a good cure for weekend boredom).

I am steering clear of all of my budget busters for a while and will have to just be content with looking at pictures of cute shoes and not actually purchasing them...sigh.

Dear Small Budget Big Style,
I have budget busters too! Like eating out at restaurants and impulse shopping for clothes when I'm feeling blue to boost my spirits. How should I control my urges? What if I just can't resist that new pair of shoes?

Lady Dove, visualizing your saving/investing goals is the best advice I can give on resisting the urges to purchase those budget busters.
