Compulsive Shoppers

The term “shopaholic” is often taken in jest, but for many people, it’s no laughing matter. Compulsive shopping is an expensive, time-consuming, and space-eating behavior, but it can also be a difficult one to break.Compulsive buying is an easy trap to fall into, which helps explain its prevalence in today’s society. Scientific findings have shown similar cognitive behavior among individuals with shopping and drug addictions; shopping activates the same areas of the brain as do certain drugs, so many people turn to it as an escape from depression and other problems.

Main Characteristics

If you are a compulsive shopper–which includes shopping for others–you frequently buy for the sake of buying, though you rarely find that you have a need for many of your purchases.  You probably have a tendency to stockpile rooms with clothes, shoes, antiques, and various other items. Some compulsive shoppers limit themselves to bargain hunting, buying items simply because they are cheap, or collecting “freebies” and other giveaways they have little or no practical use. Others tend to splurge on designer clothing and expensive jewelry.  Often, they will purchase multiple copies of the same item, wearing them only once or twice before putting the rest in storage — or buying them for others, and waiting forever for the perfect gifting occasion.

Risks

Credit cards and online shopping make it easy to feed this disorder.  Yet far from deriving a sense of control from such habits, it is all too common to end up buried under a mountain of debt and piles of unused objects. Purging your closet of clothes and items you never use or wear is necessary every so often; but as a compulsive shopper, you probably dread the thought of spring cleaning. Maybe you feel like all those belongings should serve some sort of purpose. You may have intended for them to be gifts for friends and family, or would simply like to get some use out of your brand-new purchases.
