I was amused to read this article in the latest issue of Good housekeeping. This is about a family who decided to not buy anything but perishables for one whole year. I was quite impressed by how they followed through their decision. I am not a shopaholic, but occasionally give away to impulsive purchases. Reading through the article, I was wondering whether it is doable at all for our family. We do not buy things we cannot afford anyway, but still it would take a lot of courage to attempt to do such a thing. Are you a shopaholic? How often do you indulge? And would you ever take up something like this?
