Shopoholic: one who is addicted to shopping!

Are you a shopaholic? Shopping for some women is like sports for some men. Why do we get all excited and become addicted to shopping? Well, I think it is because we like pretty things, I mean, we are girls! And when we look beautiful, we feel better. There is nothing wrong with shopping, unless it is hurting your marriage and you are being careless with your finances.  I was recently interviewed for Redbook Magazine on financial infidelity. (Check out the whole article at http://www.redbookmag.com and search for Financial Infidelity by Blake Miller)

 One thing I state in the article I learned from my former shopoholic days is that if you are hiding something, you already know it is wrong. Anything you have to sneak around to do, you know is wrong.

 I also learned that if God was going to trust me with a lot, he needed to trust me with a little. How could he give me more, if every dime I got I found an excuse to buy something? He wants to give, but to those He can trust. Ask yourself, are you trustworthy?

Seek accountability if you need to, but money is not worth losing your marriage over.

Advice?

Beth Kobliner from Redbook Magazine says to ask these seven questions before buying:

  1. Do you have to buy this item?
  2. Have you found the best deal?
  3. Have you gotten your z’s? (In other words, sleep on it!)
  4. Are you buying just because it’s on sale?
  5. Have you asked about future deals?
  6. Do you love it and do you need it?
  7. Can you afford it?

Another piece of advice I heard from Joyce Meyer when it comes to money is:

  1. Give a little
  2. Save a little
  3. Spend a little

And always within your means!

 That sounds reasonable.

 

God bless!
