How You Can Have a Shopping Addiction and Still Live Clutter-Free

I am really excited that next week we'll be living in 2012. This is an exciting time in my life and I'm looking forward to all the awesomeness and joy that I will experience next year.

With the beginning of the new year, so many of us set resolutions and goals for things we want to accomplish. Some would say that setting resolutions are a waste of time, but I say go for it! But set insane goals, things that make you wake up in the morning excited.

Most of our goals are focused on what we want to eliminate (I want to lose 50 pounds, I want to pay off all my credit cards, I want to quit my job and start my own business). Instead of focusing on what you are trying to eliminate, write resolutions for what you actually want. Instead of saying you want to lose 50 pounds, say that you want to participate in two physical activities each week that you have fun doing or you want to eat healthy, home-cooked meals 75% of the week).

Making resolutions got me to thinking about addictions. We all have them, but how do they affect your lifestyle (and your ability to reach those new year's resolutions)? Today's video may be slightly controversial. I'm going to show you how to embrace your addiction, love it, live with it, and thrive  in it. So if you have say an addiction to shopping, accept it but use these tips to help prevent the addiction from contributing to clutter in your space.
