hi i thought i'd start a thread for those of us whose lives are affected by shopping addiction... either one's own addiction or that of some one significant. This leads to frustration, and mental debilitation of living on credit, debilitation before the unstoppable force of the credit card swipe or online swipe. a shopping addiction is defined by the constant- and daily- appearances of parcels from online purchases, as well as appearances of items that appear to have been collected in person, in the house hold. I might have bought it, or another member of the household, doesn't really matter who. but the constant and daily purchases would be a definition of shop addiction I think... especially expensive shit and expensive target runs loaded with plastic products. any one heard of this, or have any thoughts, or shopping story to share? here are some proclaimed reasons for a recent plate set purchase, to add some fancy plates to the several existing sets in the household: - they're very well made - so if all the other plates break, we can avoid the living nightmare... of eating on a paper plate.
