Word of the Timebeing

ONIOMANIA (O-nee-uh-MAY-nee-uh, -MAYN-yuh) noun
Def: Compulsive shopping; excessive, uncontrollable desire to buy things.

You know, there are some things in life that aren't what they seem in the first place. First impressions can be deceptive.

Today's Word however, isn't one of them... heh heh.

For instance, we'd call people with oniomania oniomaniacs right?

I did a search on Google with this word and found this page with some tips on battling this condition. Let me share just a couple with you:

Don't carry credit cards unless you've decided beforehand on a particular purchase which warrants one.

Carry a limited amount of cash with you.
