🏬 Are You a Shopaholic, Or Just Looking Around?
It’s no secret that women love to shop, so you really can’t help it. It’s in your DNA. If you have a bad day, you know a little retail therapy will put a smile on your face. A trip to your favorite retailer can ease the pain and make it all better.
Then, when you have a good day, a shopping trip can make it even better. If you get a promotion, you might as well celebrate by buying a new outfit and some makeup. If the kids do well in school, you deserve a new pair of shoes. That’s just the way the world works.
OK, maybe it works like that to a point, but are your shopping habits getting out of control?
Before you become the subject of an intervention, take this quiz. Then, you can find out if you’re a shopaholic or if you just like to look around a bit.
It’s All About the Balance
Don’t worry, this quiz isn’t going to try to get you to put down the credit card and leave your shopping days behind you. Instead, it’s going to help you find a balance between saying, “Charge it,” and, “I can’t go shopping today.” When you find that balance, you’ll have more money in your bank account and you won’t feel as guilty when you pick up something nice from your favorite retailer. Plus, your relationships will be better once you find that balance. Your friends and family won’t be nearly as worried about your shopping habits.
Getting Back in Control
What if the quiz says that you’re out of control? Is it too late for you?
You can always make changes, but you have to be willing to make the effort. Start saying no to some shopping trips. Cut them in half and then go from there. Taking little steps here and there will make a huge difference in overcoming your shopping addiction.
No one wants to be a shopping addict, but you can get control back. Take the quiz and find out where you stand in the retail world.
