Glorifying over-the-top spending, 12-Year-Old Shopaholic and Other Big Spending Kids, a three-part British documentary, profiles four kids, and their well-meaning, but confused and overindulgent parents whose own unresolved issues result in massive overspending and a financial fog so thick that even the one that blankets London can't compete.
For the 100th time I've told myself I'm not allowed to buy even one more dress -- in fact, let me raise that ante -- I'm not allowed to buy ANY articles of clothing (this means shoes, sock, bras, lacy underthings, shirts, blouses -- you get the friggin' point) until I have worn every single one of my 71 dresses.
Not long ago, prior to play dates and potty-training, I looked forward to some Me Time at the stores. The saleslady knew my first name and we often acted like long lost friends.

As a matter of fact, I feel like I'm cheating on her. Now my shopping is done online.
