Be a financially savvy shopaholic


(Note: The shirts in the photo are hideous. People who use my theory to justify buying ugly clothing will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.)

I confess. I am a shopaholic. I go shopping for clothing at least once per week. I have four pairs of Puma's, eleven track jackets, eight sweatshirts, and way too many t-shirts. My friends don't understand. "You write about investing and personal finance. You pick up pennies on the sidewalk, save more money than any of us, and are one of the only people I know who actually knows the interest rate you receive on your savings account. How can you shop so much and yet claim to be financially literate and responsible. Zac, you hypocrite."
