It's always tempting to go shopping at the start of a new season. Below are some shopping-related links that don't include the usual sale promotions:

If, like me, you're someone who struggles with responsible spending, xojane's piece on avoiding 'I deserve it' purchases is a good pre-shopping read.

..and check out stiletosandtequila's post to remind you of all the reasons why shopping isn't all it's cracked up to be.
