I overspend sometimes too.
I try really hard to return things if I start to feel remorseful about buying them. That way, you scratched the "itch" to shop but you don't suffer the consequences (the bill).
Also, one thing that helps me is shopping at thrift stores. That way, I can let myself go a little "crazy" and buy a bunch of stuff while doing A LOT less damage on the wallet. This helps me get the desire to shop out of my system. I also get really cool stuff sometimes :)
