Shopping Addiction or Just Being Helpful?

Some say this is just a socially acceptable way to indulge my shopping addiction. Other's say my reviews help them from wasting money on crap so they can spend their money on products that really work. 

I say that one of my very favorite things to do is to share my thoughts, feelings, and experiences on products I'm either loving or hating. Or sometimes even laughing about because whew boy, have I wasted some money on some stupid stuff.
