Reading - Confessions of a Shopaholic

Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella

Becky has what most 25 years old only dream of ; a flat in London's trendiest neighborhood, a troupe of glamorous sociality friends, and a closet brimming with the season's must-haves. The only trouble is, she can't actually afford it - not any of it.

Her job writing at Successful Saving Magazine not only bores her to rears, it doesn't pay much at all. Still, how can she resist that perfect pair of shoes ? Or the divine silk blouse in the window of that ultra-trendy boutique ?

But lately Becky's been chased by dismal letters from Visa and the Bank - letters with large red sums she can't bear to read - and they're getting ever harder to ignore. She tries cutting back; she even tries making more money. But not of her efforts succeeds. Her only consolation is to buy herself something ... just a little something ...

Thanks for the nice comment on the rosebud baby hat. It was a fun project. I love that book, there are more hats I want to make from it. Interesting book you're reading. It seems many people are living above their means. I have an excellent book in my personal library that has helped me over the years. It is by Dave Ramsey, and is titled, "The Total Money Makeover". It details on how to get out of debt, step by step. I bought it "used' on Take care.
