Shopping spree free

Curbing your retail addiction with a bag that locks.

Technology can be a handy little life-saver when you need her to be. If you’re prone to drunk-dialling-and-texting, there’s a save-you-from-humiliation app. And if you easily succumb to shopping sprees, there’s a bag that shuts its lips closed faster than the sales associate can ask, “Debit or Credit?” Developed by Australia-based Credit Card Finder, the iBag actually locks itself during vulnerable spending times during the day. It also tracks your movements and sends text messages to let you know you’re off the wagon again. Now if only there were some kind of tech that could put a stop to our incessant candy-binges.
