Confessions of a real-life shopaholic

Guest post written by Courtney Felton

I’m a self-proclaimed shopaholic, so when the movie “Confessions of a Shopaholic” came out I knew I had to watch it. I did and it was adorable and really funny. Isla Fisher was also a bit of an extreme example of ashopaholic and even though I knew I wasn’t that bad it made me realize my spending ways too.

Then I kind of forgot about the movie until I came across the paperbacks the movie was based upon in a used bookstore. I, of course, snatched them up and read them cover to cover.

After I read them, I became a little more aware of my spending again and looked up wildblue internet pricing to see if I could get a better deal on my internet provider to help cut costs a little, even if I wasn’t going to cut back in my handbag part of my budget. I found the wildblue satellite internet service and switched over to it immediately.

I doubt I’ll forgo shopping anytime soon, but at least I can know I’m saving a little bit on utilities.

Cut spending on other things, just not with handbags. LOL!

BTW, love the movie too...Isla was really the best for the role.

Good day Ruthi!

I love shopping, but have realized I purchase more than I actually need. It's fortunate that I am a thrifty shopper, but I need to STOP! Take pictures helps to fill the void because looking through new photos is just like having something new. :-)
