Compulsive Buyer Tries To Go A Year Without Shopping

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — She calls Target her "Kryptonite." So is it any wonder that Elizabeth JaYne Liu has a bit of a problem staying out of malls?

To that end, this self-described compulsive shopper decided to keep a blog and see if she could go one year without shopping.

She can buy food of course — and she is also allowing herself make-up, haircuts and the gym and charity...but no fast food, shoes, jewelry, clothing, DVDs, CDs, special coffees or home accessories.

Elizabeth said she decided to start the blog in September 2010, on her 30th birthday.

She married her husband after knowing him for 18 days. She collects craft supplies. Note, she doesn't craft...she just likes looking at craft supplies.

Anyone wanna wager that this is going to be a very long, albeit entertaining, year!?
