Shopping Addiction

If you are continually breaking your budget, engaging in compulsive buying, hiding your purchases to avoid arguments, creating secret charge accounts or continually returning purchases because of the guilt or shame you feel at having made the purchase you are likely dealing with a shopping compulsion.

Q.2. Where can I get help?
A.

You can contact Credit Counselling Canada who will direct you to appropriate resources and help.
