  • You could say that =P I am bff's with the UPS/USPS guy hahaha! Seriously though, if I find a good deal on clothes or shoes, whether it be for me or my kids, I usually can't pass it up. Oh, and I'm an online shopping addict. I check my email all the time to see if old navy, gap, american eagle, hollister, or other stores are having sales that day/weekend.

  • I do the same but I take it a step further. I'm always in the stores also.

  • Not really shopping but I do have a purse addiction. I buy them way too often, even when I don't need a new one.

  • As for the purse I can have a auction just for bags. Shoes is the next thng I purchase to much of.

  • My mother did. It was absolutely awful. :( I personally have major issues with shopping because of it. I believe my mother's addiction arose out of severe deprivation as a child (grew up extremely impoverished) along with post traumatic stress disorder (lead to control issues and obsessive behaviours).

    If you feel it's a problem, I urge you to speak with someone. It sounds like a light thing to deal with but from where I stand, it isn't.

  • I'm on medication for many issue including my shopping. I still go over board while on meds. Just like your mom I was deeply deprived as a child.
