Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

Are you shopping too much?

Shopping used to be my favorite activity. It started when I was a teenager and I worked in a clothes shop. I had a staff discount in the shop and I used to spend all my wages on clothes. When I got a job in an office I carried on spending all my spare money on clothes - even after I had got married, bought a house and had children!

I used to go shopping every weekend and I probably spent about £500 a month on clothes. It wasn't something I only did when I wasn't very happy, I always went shopping however I felt. Sometimes I'd look for ages to find what I wanted. Other times, I'd just buy the first thing I saw.

Most of the things I didn’t need. One day I bought three pairs of boots, even though I already had another ten pairs at home. I never even took the most expensive pair out of the box!

I realized I had a problem when one day my five-year-old daughter looked into my wardrobe and asked me why I had so many handbags. I counted them, I had seventy-five handbags and they must have cost me thousands of pounds. I couldn't believe what I'd done!

First of all, I threw away my credit card. Then I gave away all the clothes that I'd never worn. After that, I made arrangements every Saturday to visit friends or go on a day trip, so I wouldn't be able to go shopping.
