6 Tips for Shopping Less

As a former shopaholic, I am excited to bring you my tips for shopping less! I tend to go through waves. There are times when I’m super good, but there are also times when I’m not so good.

I think we’ve established that I used to have a shopping problem…

But, these are the six tips that never fail to bring me back on track. ESPECIALLY #3! You can get all six tips in the video down below.
