A client of mine, Susan O, has admirably came to terms with her retail therapy habit by using Feng Shui and De-cluttering methods.
I caught up with her recently and she told me how her resolve to stay solvent had been severely tested.
See if you can relate to this. Or maybe you know someone who is similarly prone to shopping rather than confront what is real causing the behavioural problem?
“In the space of one week I found myself buying a brand-new carpet and a new car. One was on order and the other sitting in my parking lot while I sat inside the house painfully ruminating on both decisions. I felt psychologically drained and tethered by the credit arrangements I’d just taken on."
“The car had come about because I’d gone in for a routine service and was persuaded to try a Fiat courtesy car. Even as I drove the vehicle home, with all the papers signed, my daughter’s words rang in my ears: "we don’t need a new car, Mum. We can manage with the one we’ve got!”
“Fortunately, there was a loophole in Fiat's financial calculations. I didn’t have the money to sustain the increased payments required, which would have left me with no disposable income. I used this as my get-out opportunity."
“With the carpet I was even braver with no loophole to fall back on. I was booked to have it fitted on a Saturday and on the Monday beforehand I called and cancelled the order. The carpet man was confrontational but when I said I was very sorry and would he accept a cancellation fee, he backed down and even wavered the fee. Now I'm clear of the danger zone, I can clearly see we can manage perfectly well with the existing carpet and avoid the upheaval the fitting of a new carpet brings."
“It was a close shave on both accounts and I felt I'd been tested. It was evident to me that my psychological perspective had shifted. I feel stronger and no longer a victim so I'm much less of a risk to myself and far less prone to putting myself under financial pressure again."
