Keeping out of debt is harder than ever these days, with promotions and credit offers encouraging us to shop, shop, shop. But if we understand the underlying reasons why we shop and become aware of our buying behaviour, we are at least halfway to curbing our over-spending habits.

The next step is to replace our indulgences cheaply, and save funds for the future, investing wisely.

You may think you need the willpower and discipline of a Yoga Swami to change spending and saving habits, but I will show you simple ways to change.  Part I explains the tricks retailers use and lets you examine how your thinking influences your spending.

Part II outlines how you can change your habits; you are not just a consumer, but also a member of the community. Part III contains practical savings advice, comparisons and investing tips.


This condensed book is written “straight up” with no pussy-footing around. As your everyday recovering shopping addict, I understand modern pressures. It’s tough, but we’ve got to readjust our priorities if we want to be happy and financially secure in the future.

I am writing for the vast majority who overspend now and then. Those who think that their shopping is causing serious debt and relationship problems, please seek help from a qualified Counsellor.
