Are You a Compulsive Buyer?

Signs of a compulsive shopper include the following:

  • If you think more than you want to about shopping.

  • If you prefer to shop alone to avoid embarrassment or distraction.

  • If you shop for longer time periods than you intended.

  • If you buy more than you planned.

  • If you buy things you don't need or want.

  • If you hide what you buy (to avoid conflicts at home).

If you recognize any of these traits in yourself, seek a professional counselor or a self-help group for help in modifying your behavior.
