Can this be regarded as a shopaholic?
The picture is of a week's worth or maybe less of groceries. The groceries seen here don't include fish and any poultry. Bear in mind, I have to get the poultry from a Halal shop and not at any old supermarket. So, how much do you think I spent on buyng all this? I should make it contest or something. Ahaks. The good thing is, I actually use all the stuff seen here with none wasted.
While on the topic of buying and shopping, I have a confession to make. I have an obsession with shopping for stuff to fill my kitchen be it food or just stuff in general for the kitchen. OK, I'd be lying to you if I said I don't really like handbags or other girlie stuff. I do. I really do. It's just that if you give me a thousand Euro, I'd I rather go to the kitchen section and spend the whole lot of it there.
For example, a few weeks ago when I was in the car waiting for Ameera's school bus to arrive, I had my favourite radio station on when I heard the Gossip News by Siobhan O'Connor. Siobhan mentioned that Kim Kardashian spent over USD$100,000 on handbags on a single shopping spree. Crazy or what?
I guess most people out there would disagree with me. I know being a celebrity won't be a problem for them to do that. But, even if I had that kind of money, I would buy myself something else from you know where instead. I would think twice or maybe more to buy handbags for myself. Honestly though, I don't mind if I get it as a gift. Really I do love them. I have a few nice handbags but it will be in the
To be honest, I do go out window shopping which unfortunately, doesn't happen too often nowadays. I would still buy something at the end of the day but it will be from kitchen/grocery section or something related. I love to eat so I just can't stop myself from buying any good food if had the chance.
So, would you then consider me a shopaholic? If given a chance, I would be able to spend hundreds of Euro in Tesco alone and if I go to another supermarket I might still end up buying something else too.

As the recession hit me badly, I have had to control myself and be more disciplined about shopping. Towards the end of the movie, Confessions of a Shopaholic, everything that had been bought was re-sold. What should I do then? Hehehe by the time I realise that I had been shoppng like mad, the stuff that I bought would either be finished or go bad. No extra money for me there is there?
Well, to ease the pain, you guys out there who live in or around Dublin who would like to make me some money why not try my (in)famous Oreo Cheesecake, or some of my simply decorated cuppies, or any of the cookies or cheeseballs I've mentiond before, please do not hesitate to drop me a message. I do take orders. Anytime. Thanks!
