My niece recently gave me a book to read, declaring the main character reminded her of me.
The book: "Confessions of a Shopaholic"...
Now unlike Rebecca, I've never got myself into serious debt through shopping, nor have I compromised any close relationships or risen to fame. But I have shopped indiscriminately, without need and when I should be spending money on other things. I simply can't help it, I have to shop!
Living in the country does hamper retail therapy. There aren't too many stores that stock quality labels or unique designs. That is why I developed my love for internet shopping, and how I do love to shop online! You can browse and ponder until your hearts content, there's no need for rash purchases or pushy salespeople. I can shop for hours on end and not develop blisters or bunions on my feet.
My greatest love of shopping online - all the unique, handmade, superb quality clothes, decor and accessories you can buy, at a fraction of the cost you'd pay in store. My favourite online store is Etsy. I spend hours on end adding gorgeous items to my ever growing wishlist, and even more hours pondering what to buy next when everything is considered a need and not a want!
If you haven't already discovered the delights of Etsy, I suggest you pop on over. Here are a couple of my latest favourite finds:
