Signs You’re Completely And Utterly Addicted To Shopping

We all enjoy a bit of retail therapy now and then, but like other things, shopping can become very addictive if you’re not careful. It can be hard to resist the temptation to buy that nice new dress, that cool new top, that handy household appliance or that expensive new phone. Here are 12 sigs you’re completely and utterly addicted to shopping – if any of these apply to you, you might want to think about getting your spending habits under control before you end up with no money and mountains of stuff you don’t really need.

  1. Even if you really can’t afford to go shopping, you still go anyway – if you’re already in debt, surely a little more wouldn’t hurt?
