Are you a shopaholic when it comes to clothes? Could you do a no shopping challenge?

In todays' episode, Lesley talks to two friends who embarked on a challenge to change their clothes shopping behaviours. We talk about the psychology of shopping, the details of their challenge and most importantly what they learnt from the process and whether they would recommend it for anyone who wants to challenge themselves in the New Year. Could you do a no shopping challenge? To help you think about it, here are the things we talk about.
