Share A Secret: I sold off my family’s personal things to fund my shopping

The Weekly's readers share their most well-kept and intimate secrets

There are many things I love in this world: My teenage daughter Sofie’s* singing talent, my pet dog Boo Boo*, my husband Jason’s* corny humour. And shopping. Yes, as superficial as it may sound, I am a shopperholic. It is my hobby, my obsession, and my one flaw that made me commit “crimes” against my family.

Nothing relaxes me more than flipping through the departmental racks, trying and then purchasing clothes. Even if I didn’t need anything, I was just as happy visiting newly-opened boutiques to window-shop. And as for shopping online – my email is filled with web store e-flyers, most of my phone apps are e-commerce related, and I have spent hours searching the Internet for everything from the season’s must-have sneakers to past-season luxury bags.
