The Reluctant Shopper by Bruce Hoogendoorn

Bruce Hoogendoorn 8 February 2013 2

The economy is in trouble and The Business Council is very worried about its members. So they take drastic action – they blackmail a wealthy young tax avoider, Sam, to start spending in their members’ shops. But there’s a problem – he’s a Scrooge who hates shopping!

However, Barry, from the Council, is not easily put off. And when he brings Sam together with Lisa, a beautiful young shopping addict, the money starts to fly, but with unexpected results.

Budgets are important not just for shopping but for your everyday life. Your personal clothing budget is dependent on your income, debts and other expenses. My personal budget allots for 3.8- 4.2% of my take-home salary. Debt is not sexy, although we are all guilty of buying items on payday loans. When you put a budget together and save money for your shopping trips you are more likely to not buy on impulse
