ShopaholicAnonymous!!

You go to a shop to get a pair of shoes and you end up buying a tie, perfume, shirt, socks...and you actually forget the the shoes! Have this ever happened to you? It happens to me most of the time I shop. So today I pass by a clothes shop & I go in to get a black shirt, guess what I bought at the end of the day...A photo frame from another shop.Shocking is what I can say. In the first place I didn't need a black shirt, it is just that I wanted one. Back home I sat down thinking about my behaviour and why I did it. Then I started googling for any possible reason why I do what I do, and this website http://www.shopaholicsanonymous.org/ had an interesting insight on the topic. I did a valence test which consisted of some Q&As, and turns out I am a compulsive shopaholic. I didn't like the results but hey it is true. Check it out for yourself.
