Code works but doesn't show anything

My code works. But it doesn't show, that anything was added etc.

Also when i say DONE it doesn't show the things in items.

shopping_list = []

def show_help():
  print("What should we pick up at the store?")
  print("Enter DONE to stop. Enter HELP for help.")

def add_to_list(item):
  print("Added! List has {} items.".format(len(shopping_list)))

def show_list():
  print("Here's your list:")
  for item in shopping_list:


while True:
  new_item = input("> ")
  if new_item == 'DONE':

while True:
  new_item = input("> ")
  if new_item == 'DONE':

move this to the top, just above def show_help():,

how does it work now? =D

your code seems to be incomplete ... Where do you catch if the user enter "HELP" for example ?
