Thirty-one thousand, six hundred and thirty-seven pounds and eighty-four pence. That's how much I owe. I feel sick looking at the display on the calculator. I try turning it upside down to see if that helps. It looks like 'hOLEgIEA', which probably means 'loser' in some long forgotten language. 'When your debt is more than your share of the mortgage and your partner's threatening not only to leave, but to tell your mother how out of control your spending is, then it's time to take drastic action.

But for Alexis Hall, a self-confessed shopaholic, just making it through your lunch hour without buying the latest accessory becomes a life-altering act ...Join Alexis on her year-long quest to reclaim her life from what's become a retail roller coaster. Twelve long months and just three short no new clothes, necessity purchases only, and payoff as much debt as possible. Can she transform herself from a spending junkie to a scrupulous saver? And what will she discover about herself along the way?
