16 Things Only Shopaholics Will Understand


1. When going on holiday, your luggage is always overweight. YES you need that one top in four different colours. And no you won't compromise.

2. Seeing the word 'Sale' gets you more excited than a new Zac Efron movie.

3. You know all of your card details off by heart, making online shopping much easier.

4. On your CV, you put shopping as one of your hobbies.

5. You'd rather go hungry for three nights and instead be able to afford that new dress.

6. Dressing rooms with bad lighting should definitely be against the law.

7. Scooping up the last item in your size gives you a sense of power.

8. You're on first name basis with all the staff in your favourite shops.

9. The feeling of finding an amazing deal is better than when you see your food coming at a restaurant.

10. 50% discount means double the clothes.

11. You've spent hours looking up discount codes online.

12. When you enter a shop, you avoid picking up a basket to limit yourself... but end up hurting your arms carrying way too much stuff anyway.

13. You feel irritated when you find out your friend doesn't like shopping. Can this friendship even continue?

14. Shopping for someone else automatically turns into shopping for yourself. "My friend would really love this... but then I really love it too."

15. Bringing home a big bag of new clothes is like bringing a newborn home for the first time.

16. Sometimes, you really do have nothing to wear.
