Zuzana was at school with her unique style as a star. She was able to combine clothes from chains with suitable accessories and pieces from second hand. She had enough time to view the discounts, and the limited budget rather supported her creativity. She simply did a lot of money for little money.
A turnaround came when she started to work in a large company after school. Colleagues wore expensive designer clothes, and Zuzana accidentally listened to her conversation. Moreover, due to overtime, she no longer had time to browse in discounts and second hands.
She decided to go counterattack – at last she had enough money for the more expensive pieces that she had only longedly tried in her stalls. She knew she had style, and that colleagues would still like to come to her for advice.
At first they slandered, then envied
On the day of her first payout, Zuzana went to the boutique, which had been above her possibilities until then. She had a triumphant feeling at the time of payment and immediately went to the next store. She needed shoes and a handbag for her new dress.
She was stopped by a limit on her credit card in subsequent purchases, but the intoxicating feeling persisted. In the days that followed, he was multiplied with praise from colleagues and even an invitation to a coffee from a colleague. Zuzana returned to the shops more and more often, and her wardrobe suddenly overflowed with luxury goods.
But the more she wore, the more her appetite grew. She unobtrusively asked her colleagues where they still take the money for their purchases. That’s when they told her their secret weapon – a credit card.
She stopped checking with her credit card
Zuzana bought one and finally did not have to limit her purchases. She was able to make purchases with her credit card regardless of her account status. If she repaid the debt in the interest-free period, she did not pay anything extra. Over time, however, the situation got out of hand and Zuzana had to admit that she was dependent on shopping.
Fortunately, she found support in her family. She temporarily moved in with her sister, who helped her pay off her debts while checking what Zuzana was buying. They also started running together to get rid of Zuzana’s compulsive shopping needs.
An important point was also the cancellation of the credit card – Zuzana realized that she does not have the necessary payment discipline and the card could again mislead her.
The story has a happy ending
Thanks to Zuzana’s realization of her problem and support in her family, she managed to get rid of her shopping addiction . She kept only a few models in her wardrobe, returned the rest, handed out or sold. She has also changed her job – now she has a lower salary, but she is not in a team of superficial colleagues who judge others only by appearance.
Susan’s story proves that a credit card is a good servant but a bad master. He can save his owner a lot of money or encourage him to make purchases that are beyond his possession. Nothing simply exaggerates!
