This book is a great read to take your mind off of things. After reading about how she owes $20,000 in debt thanks to shopping and highlights, my own problems seem much smaller. I think that any woman can relate to this, who doesn't wish they had the money for highlights and weekly manicures? There are some cringe worthy moments, like spending over $700 on lingerie (she spent the amount of my rent within an hour!), but this book is funny, well written, and entertaining.

This book was very well written. If you are a shopaholic, you will definitely relate. And if you are not a shopaholic, you will still love this book. The author wrote this book with a lot of enthusiasm and humor. It's a must read!

I really liked this book because it gave a great insight to how easily your debt can spiral out of control. It taught this lesson through humor, and you can easily relate to Karyn. I honestly would re-read this book and I don't say that often. It taught me the lessons of finance and what not to do. Definitely a good read and you will laugh and cry with the character throughout. Highly recommend.

Karyn is in her twenties and decided to move from Chicago to New York City but things did not turn out as she expected. Moving to New York made her icontrol towards her credit cads. She is a very impulsive buyer that lead her to a twenty-thousand dollars credit card debt. Karyn is a producer that makes about one thousands and eight hundred dollars a month but her checks are not enough for her debt so she decided to get another job in where she was accepted and got pay a little more than her last job. The bad news for karyn was that she didn't like this job for the reason that she didn't have any weekends off, worked more than ten hours and couldn't sleep the hours that she needed. After working a year for the company, Karyn and the rest of the employers needed to sign a paper in which they didn't know that the was the new contract for the next year. Karyn decided not to sign it and like a blink of an eye she got fired. For the next six months Karyn apply for other jobs but they denide her because it was occupy or did not match the curriculum. Days later karyn had the idea of creating a website were she told her problem after coming to New York. In November 10, 2002 Karyn had no debt. Many people help as many just critize.

I am 23 years old...good job...love shopping...so i can related a lot to Karyn. She makes you realize how easy it is to go broke. I know not everyone agrees with her method of getting back on her feet but it was a well thought out idea

I LOVED this book!!! I even had to e-mail Karyn to see if she would write anymore books in the future. I am sad the book has ended and I am done with it. It really was one of the best books I've read in a long time. You go girl!

I really enjoyed reading this book. It has a lot of humor. Karyn is a great writer and had me interested in her story. It could happen to anyone. She had a ton of courage and gusto to do what she did. My hat is off to her. I read the book in one afternoon - I could not put it down!

Great book... filled with terrifying and chilling tales of debt, shopping, and more debt. If you've never been in debt, reading this book with insure you'll never make these mistakes - ever.

I saw Karyn's website when she started it last year. Very creative idea. The book gave a great insight into her life and how she ended up in debt.

The book itself is well written, but the content is a waste of your time. I assumed editors made the book flow well. Does anyone care about how some 30 something chick can't stop shopping, and then begged her way back from bankruptcy. I have met Karyn before, and found her quite nice, and her little dog too.
