My name is Crystal, and I'm a shop-a-holic

How I know I have a shopping addiction:

  1. There is no room in my closet.  Granted, I live in a matchbox, but my closet is stuffed to the gills.
  2. As I type this, I have another tab opened on my browser so I can look for more clothes.
  3. I get clothes delivered to my job.
  4. I have a ton of clothes in my closet that still have tags on them. 
  5. When I donate clothes to Goodwill (you should definitely do this at the end of every season), I use it as an excuse to buy more clothes.
  6. It's easier to put my clothes in the hamper then to hang them up.  (Refer to #1.)

And with that, I think it's time for another shopping fast.  For one month, I commit to not buying any new clothes & only shopping in my closet.  When I did this in July 2011, I saved over $200. In February 2012 (in honor of Black History Month), I will no longer give my money to the Man & his clothing stores.

So, who's gonna join me in my shopping fast??


  1. That's tough, but I'll try.

    1. Great! Welcome to the February Shopping Fast club!
