Ive finally been able to admit it - i have an addiction to internet shopping and a bad one at that. So ive taken inniative - ive deleted my card details on all the sites i buy off
the list goes on
and ive given my debit card to my mum so i cant buy anything online (apart from my tax disc)
Now take this as a sort of experiment but i think it could help other people realise what they have.......an addiction.
My plan/experiment is every time i pop on here(incl for sale forums) or scour the net and see something that takes my fancy and seriously would buy im going to post on here a link - info price and why i want it --- and after the month of this experiment i will work out how much i have saved and how much i would of spent - im on a decent job earning around £26k a year and because i live with my parents i have no bills no mortgage no commitments and i think due to this lack of what and how to use money that i have a problem.
As i say this will be a month(until 20/2/09) starting from 7pm tonight 20th January and after that time whatever ive saved im going to donate 5% (not much but better than nothing ) to a selected charity chosen by you guys.
I am serious about this issue as looking back at my bank statements ive spent over £3000 on dvds and games in the past 2 months most of which are still sealed in my room.
So i hope you lot can back me on this and i hope to broaden the knowledge of internet addiction and show most of you that you probably have it and like me cant help it.
p.s please dont mock this im genuine about it
