A Book A Shopaholic Can Understand

Guest post written by Linda Brewer


I've always had a problem with being able to stop myself from spending a ton of money when I go shopping. I just love the feel of swiping my card and getting the stuff in a new shiny bag that I just bought. But I'm trying to not spend so much money now because I'm saving up for a new car.

People have been telling me forever that I need to read the shopaholic book series, so I went online about a month and bought the whole set of them. Right after I did that I saw and read through it. Then I switched over my internet service to it because I thought that maybe I could use some of that extra money to put toward my new car.

Well, after I read a few of the books I ordered the rest of the books by the Shopaholic writer Sophie Kinsella. I can obviously relate to the shopaholic Becky because I’m a shopaholic too. But I think that reading about the ridiculous amount of money that she spends on things she doesn’t need is helping me control my shopping.
