So who would of thought shopping could be a addiction. Now after years of buying things and seeing my closet full of clothes I never wore. I came to a conclusion I have a issue with shopping. I am proud to say after seeing you I now keep my credit card in my wallet and happy to see my bills are less and I am now saving for a fun vacation. Thanks Pattie
