Bought Out and Spent! Recovery from Compulsive Shopping & Spending: Terrence Daryl Shulman
Shopping is a raging phenomenon among developed countries and has been studied over and over. Sociologists say it´s a female drive in an attempt to explain the differences in shopping behavior between men and women. It was said that the same obsession of men over sports can be linked to the way women go crazy on Black Friday sales or on mall openings. In the evolution of man, the male species are known to be hunters while women have always been the gatherers or the ones who are in charge of finding things for their offspring. It is quite a reductionist perspective and is still widely debated, but one thing´s for sure: shopping will keep women enchanted for years to come. This behavior is not exactly exclusive to women though, because when you consider the purchase of gadgets, large screen TV, and high-end cars, the tendency of men to make expensive purchases is surely noticeable. However, this is limited to a targeted section of the market. Women, on the other hand, will shop whenever, wherever, and whatever! This is because men consider shopping as merely a purchase of specific merchandise, while for women, it´s a whole different world altogether. It´s hard to not love shopping. The glitz, glamour, scents of a newly minted shopping mall, the vibrant colors, the excitement, the friends you meet along the way, the giddy feeling of being able to all the fabulous things that money can buy - all of these are hard to resist! But when does shopping stop being a charm and starts haunting you like a curse? Where do you draw the line between recreation and obsession? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Millian Quinteros.

In the UK, someone is declared insolvent or bankrupt every five minutes, and a property is repossessed every eighteen minutes. Thirteen per cent of Australian adults and seventeen per cent of Aussie kids live below the poverty line, whilst the average Australian adult spends the first eight weeks of each year working just to pay for their car.

I remember this time. Clearly. Vividly. I would get this feeling. In my gut. It would be almost like a tingling sensation in my hand. The sensation, the want to spend some money and to bring home something that I didn´t really need. I also remember the times when I would see something. In a magazine, in a store display, or in an advertisement, and I would not be able to get it out of my head. It got so bad that it would even haunt my dreams. Does it sound like your life story to you? Well then you have come to the right place. Having struggled with a compulsive shopping problem for years, one day I decided enough was enough. I was running out of space, my finances were low, and it was more trouble than it was worth. I took the decision and I pulled through. However, the journey had not been easy. Realizing that, I decided to put together this book to help out my fellows who are struggling out there. Having suffered personally, this book is a very up close and personal account of how to enforce a spending ban so that you can achieve some peace of mind.
