I hate to admit it, but there are many times when I will watch entertainment programs or read magazines like the National Enquirer in order to hear some good celebrity gossip.

Sometimes it is easier to accept our own problems if we see other people dealing with the same issue. It can be more difficult to accept that you have a problem with shopping addiction, because compared with other addictions, there is not much of a negative stigma realted to a shopping addiction. While Adults with ADD may make poor shopping and money management decisions due to their impulsive nature, compulsive shopping reaches a deeper level. Here are some warning signals that you might have a compulsive shopping problem:
1. Buying items that you do not need or items that you have never used.
2. Hiding purchases from family and friends or lying about how much money you spent.
3. Borrowing or stealing money from others to shop.
4. Your purchases are causing issues with work or home life.
