Women during financial crisis are inclined to do more shopping and spend more money in order to rid themselves of depression associated with recession, suggest the findings of a new survey by British psychologists.

I've not spent more on myself... If anything I've cut back!

Has the same thing happened in your part of the world?

  • I do feel the urge to spend more when I'm down, definitely. I've tightened up on other things, though, like power and water and we got rid of cable and lowered our phone bill.
