As a recovering shopaholic, the worst thing I could have done was buy a smartphone — and all the tempting apps that come with it.
Some apps are actually meant to help me save while others make shopping so simple that by the time I click ‘Add to Cart’ I haven’t had time to think about what I’m doing and before I know it …
Whoops! There goes 20 bucks.
What I found from having our video producer, Will Wei, follow me around for a day was that my need to “save” has only been driving me to spend more.
It’s a vicious cycle that I think many of you out there will relate to.
