How did you score?
You are Shopping Detox frugal! Like me, you are doing your best to live within your means and strive to have a healthy balance between being financially responsible and having fun. Maybe you eat too many chocolate bars and Starbucks drinks, but you're working on it!

You are Carrie Bradshaw frugal. I'm not sure how you afford that fabulous Manhattan one-bedroom apartment on your columnist's salary, and your shoe collection is worth more money than you have in the bank. But whatever, you have a good time, have pretty hair, and everybody loves you. Though your choice in men leaves a lot to be desired.
|You're sweet and pretty, but I think you need to eat a bit more.|
Hello, Jodie Foster from the movie "Nell." Enjoy your feral, living out in the woods with no expenses lifestyle. You might want to think about visiting civilization every now and then, but as long as you're happy... well... maybe get a haircut every few years? For me?
|Nell says "Soooweeeeh in the chickapeeeeeeh."|
I think this means, where do I get a fur bikini like Raquel Welch has?
