Do you have time to shop?
The average woman spends 8 years of her life shopping.
Are you above or below average?
Do you consider shopping a time-waster? What would happen if you limited all your shopping to one day of the week? Even internet shopping. Would you save money? save time? What would you do with your extra time?
Try logging the time you send shopping for one week. Write down on your calendar when your are shopping and for how long. Also note how you feel while shopping. Are you escaping your busy life? Is shopping a stress reliever for you? or does it cause stress? Once you connect with the feelings you have while shopping consider what activity you could do instead.

Just something to think about.
