Are you a shopaholic?

Ali de Bold

Here is a list of indicators from WebMD that you may be a bona fide Shopaholic. Don't worry, we've come up with some great rebuttals so you needn't get bogged down with their message of doom and gloom...

* Spending over budget
So we all go a little over budget from time to time. Surely we can agree it's because most of us are underpaid, yes? If it costs $100 for a decent pair of pants and that is a day's wages, is it really our fault if we spend more than we can afford? Shouldn't our cheap @ss employer shoulder some of the blame here?

* Compulsive buying
Quick question. Define "Compulsive". Must all shopping be pre-meditated? Sometimes the best inspiration comes from last minute purchases.

* It's a chronic problem
Pfffft! Didn't George Bush tell everyone to keep shopping to support the economy? Sound advice that can apply to all Nations.

*Hiding the problem
B$tch, please. My business is my business. I'm not about to go to confession every time I buy a new pair of heels.

* A vicious circle.
Buy. Feel guilty. Return. At return register see something even better and buy that instead. Feel guilty. Return...

Simple solution. Don't feel bad. We only live once, right? Stop the cycle by just feeling good about your purchases.

* Impaired relationships
Come now. Are we really responsible for the jealousy of others?

*Clear consequences.
If looking frick'n AMAZING counts as a consequence, we can live with that.

Soooo... are you a shopaholic?

Just clothes?

I think I have money spending problem but not just on clothes. My worst is on food and entertainment. I would spend money on clothes if there is something that i really like but that is very rare. I don't get how you gals can buy just whatever.

Who, me?

Of course not! Not using the Chick Advisor logic anyway. haha Though I have to say the majority of my "impulse purchases" goes to earrings, pretty hair toys, and lip gloss moreso than clothes. I'm a sucker for some cute sparkly, dangly earrings, pretty hair sticks and a "perfect right now in this moment" new shade of gloss. :D
