Sure, we all like to shop, at least I do, but how often do we snap up things simply because they are a bargain while at the same time having no real use for them, not to mention our closets are already full of similar things we haven't even used yet. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that anyone should henceforth stop buying new things. What I'm getting at here is that we need to learn appreciating what we already have (and consequently use it instead of filling up the already stuffed shelves) and experience the joy when we do treat ourselves to a little shopping splurge.
Now, if I those first two paragraphs haven't scared you away already, I hope you'll stick around for this new feature which is about sharing my own little journey from being quite a shopaholic to switching to the frugal life over two years ago. My life still contains the occasional shopping spree and I'm certainly not running around in tatters, plus (and who doesn't like the sound of that) I've been saving heaps of money through this new lifestyle (which I'd rather invest in traveling instead of some designer frock), so if that sounds good to you I welcome you to a whole lot of rambling about frugal living from this thrifty gal!
