(Newser) – Too much money? Here's some much-needed advice from the Consumerist:

  1. Make shopping your hobby.
  2. Don't budget.
  3. Buy your friends gifts you can't afford
  4. Grocery shop hungry, don't bring a list, and buy everything you sample.
  5. Use the ATM at the gas station.

  1. Buy every single thing you think you need.
  2. Don't open a high-interest savings account:
  3. Run up loads of credit card debt.
  4. Let yourself—and your car, and your house—go.
  5. Buy your kids whatever they ask for.
