Stopping Overshopping for Clothing

April Lane Benson In Conversation With Jill Chivers

Are you spending a lot on clothes you don’t need and don’t wear?
Are shoes your Achilles heel when it comes to overshopping?
Are you feeling guilty, ashamed, or confused about all this?
Do you want to have more control but don’t know where to start?
Have you tried to stop overshopping, but been unable to?

If you’re ready to learn the secrets others have used to rein in their runaway habit —

and still look and feel great every day, this session is for you.

This session will help you discover:

  • What’s at the root of purchases you later regret and use that information to buy more mindfully.
  • How to make friends with money, feel good about the way you look, and not feel deprived.
  • How to tap into the hidden mileage and magic in your wardrobe.

Who should attend?

This session is for you if…
  • You like to look stylish and want the self-respect that comes with being in control of your shopping (and your money).
  • You like variety in your wardrobe but you don’t like looking at your maxed out credit card statements.
  • You wear only a fraction of your clothes and you’re sick of looking at those unworn items hanging in your closet. (Most women wear 20 – 30% of their wardrobes – learn how to get much greater usage out of your current wardrobe.)
