I'm sitting at home watching an episode of True Life on MTV. This episode is profiling two young women who are addicted to shopping. As an organizing expert, I find it fascinating. I witness these girls indulging their addiction to acquiring new clothing, wigs and accessories while ignoring higher financial priorities such as rent and utility bills, I can't help but think about the cycle of money for a compulsive shopper and how it's always a losing proposition.
Let's do a little math, shall we? (and you KNOW how I feel about math...)
