Widowed mom Candice lives in California with her sons, Derek and Darrien, in a seven-bedroom home. Their closets are full of clothes they don't wear, and Candice has $500 Jimmy Choo shoes she has never worn. She even refinanced their home so she could pay off her car...so she could purchase a new truck.

While Candice and her sons eat out almost every night, she still spends $400 a week on groceries. Much of that food ends up wasted, thrown away after it expires on the shelf or in the refrigerator.

Candice wrote in to The Oprah Show, pleading for someone to help her learn how to be happy with less: "I submit myself to you—mind, body, soul and shoes."
