Anyone a SHOPAHOLIC? They’re casting for a new show.

by J. Money on Tuesday, October 4, 2011

(Got this in a press release — Anyone fit the bill? If so I want 10% ;))
===========================================================
From the producer of OBSESSED, we’re seeking SHOPAHOLICS for a new series for a major cable network!

  • Do you or someone you know shop to excess?
  • Are you addicted to shopping?
  • Do you spend all your time and money shopping?
  • Is shopping affecting your personal, financial, or professional life?
  • What would happen if you don’t stop shopping?
  • Are you out of control?

This is a new project that will explore the lives of shopaholics, and seek to help them on their journey to recovery. If you or someone you know is dealing with a shopping addiction, we want to hear from you. To submit please contact us at castingshoppers (at) gmail (dot) com, with your name, contact information, a recent photo of yourself and a short description of you and your situation.
===========================================================

Oh my. I’d be too embarrassed to be on this show, but I think I might qualify. And I do like being on TV. Hm…

Does shopping for golf balls count? I can’t stop hitting them in the damn lake, so I can’t stop buying them!

I wonder if free stuff off of Craigslist qualifies?

Haha…

@Annabelle – — Reach out and see what happens! I think it’s always worth the first call and you can always say no later :)
@Kevin @ Thousandaire.com – Haha, only if me and lottery tickets count!
@Molly – Now that’s an interesting one… it is rather addicted!

Thankfully, no! I was not blessed (?) with the shopping gene, though I do like shoes and bags, but in tasteful moderation. Shopping mostly just bores me to tears, so I have no fear of becoming a shop-a-holic.

Haha, well that’s good! I used to be pretty addicted myself before my 40 day no shopping challenge – now I can go weeks, even month!, without going to stores I don’t have to be in. I still miss the thrill of getting great deals and a spruced up wardrobe though. My stuff is starting to get old ;)

I seriously have shopping issues. There is nothing i would rather do more. i may have a problem, but the first step is admitting it right??

That’s what they say :) Have you ever checked out Debtor’s Anonymous? I had no idea places like that existed – maybe it’s worth looking into?
