I am currently reading the 'Shopaholic' series. Well, I'm still on the first one but I've bought the rest so that technically means I'm half way there, huh. There are so many quotes in this book that I have used in the past to justify my over spending:
I'm sure I'm not the only one to use this lie!
"That's a nice skirt!" my mother said, looking at me as though for the first time. "Where's that from?"
"DKNY ," I mumbled back.
"Very pretty," she says. "was it expensive?"
"Not really" I say without pausing. "About fifty quid"
This is not strictly true. It was nearer a hundred and fifty.
And I definitely believe this statement when I'm overspending in Boots!
I love advantage points. Aren't they a wonderful invention? If you spend enough, you get really good prizes.
