Is Shopping Your Weakness?


Last week I spoke to a group about decluttering and downsizing. Among other things, we talked about over-shopping. Ironically, the seminar was held in a mall and I had to walk through a high-end store to get to the classroom.

I’m sorry I didn’t take pictures of the huge posters hung throughout the store to promote their back-to-school sale. The slogans all referred to the fact that your life wouldn’t be complete without the items on sale.

Too many people spend money they haven’t earned, to buy things they don’t want, to impress people they don’t like. – Will Rogers

Whether or not you are able to spend money on stuff, you choose the amount that is enough for you. You don’t have to buy things just to have stuff or to show others how well you’re doing.

Actually, if you don’t shop, you’ll do just fine.
