Compulsive Shoppers

Compulsive shopping occurs when there is a compulsive need to shop for items that sometimes are unpractical and do so in an addictive way. Items are purchased merely for the sake of buying and realistically, they have little or no realistic use. Over the years, it becomes expensive, time consuming, and a difficult habit to overcome; especially when the house is filled with unnecessary possessions that rarely gets put to use.

In some instances, people divert from their problems through shopping and shop to escape from depression and reality. Scientific findings have shown that there is a similarity between shopping and drug addictions, hence the term "shopping therapy". Some with the condition buy items that they assume they will one day use, make purchases solely because they are cheap, and even get things waiting for a gifting occasion.
