Persons with a shopping addiction also suffer from compulsive spending. Shopping addiction is characterized by a variety of signs which include:
Purchasing items on a credit card that you wouldn’t have otherwise bought on cash as it would feel reckless.
- Shopping as a result of emotions, such as being sad, angry, or happy, chaos in life, and emotional distress.
- Being dishonest to others on the amount you’ve spend and what you’ve bought.
- Manipulating accounts to keep on top of your debts and spending habits.
