Most of us lurve shopping, but not all of us are addicted to it. That means, save for the occasional impulse buy, we’re able to control our material desires and not spend more than we can afford.
If that sounds unlike you, you just might actually have a shopping addiction. Otherwise known as compulsive buying disorder, it’s characterised by an obsession with shopping and is a type of buying behaviour that can result in emotional and financial distress.
