One of women's favorite pastime ishopping. I wasn't one who grew up poor, or without. My mother always took me shopping during the summer for new school clothes. Not always the clothes that I wanted to wear, or thought was fly, but what she felt was appropriate and durable. Soon as I started earning my own money, shopping and clothes became synonymous with my free time. Whether I find the best deals, paying pennies on the dollar for clothes and accessories, I still have a difficult time shopping based on necessity. As an avid thrifter, I purge my overflowing, shared closet just about every month. No shame in my game, but there is a tinge of shame and an uncontrollable urge that I see in women young or old, black or white. Can you recognize if you have a problem? Do you know a hoarder, or someone who shops obsessively. Below are some pictures of my closet before a major overhaul. Going into the year with clutter, means I go in it with chaos. Who wants that? My goal is to have an organized closet that contains only items that I ACTUALLY wear. Share your organization tips below, and share this with girlfriends who suffer with OCD of the wallet and credit cards.
How do you control and treat this condition?It is recommended that spending addicts seek professional counseling or a self-help group to deal with this problem. Addictive behaviors tend to come in clusters, so if you have an eating disorder, a problem with drugs or alcohol, or gambling, you may be a candidate for shopping addiction. Many communities have credit counseling centers that will also help with shopoholism.
