The people who were addicted to shopping in the past had to get in their cars or on a bus and schlep out to the store to satisfy their craving. These days, shopping addictions can be satisfied without ever leaving the house.
Thank You QVC And Other Television Shopping Networks
I can’t even begin to stress how important it is to curb your shopping when it comes to buying from shopping networks and television. This is not to say that nothing useful can be purchased from these networks; far from it in fact. But these networks have made it easier than ever to overspend.
Buying Online Can Be Just As Addictive
Thanks to the possibility of online credit card processing, shopping channels on television isn’t the only shopping addiction that can be done from the privacy and comfort of your home. When you’re not watching TV what are you doing? Are you on your computer? More people do their shopping online these days than ever before in history. It’s easy, its quick and lots of discounts are applied when purchasing ‘online only’.
Possibly the show ‘Hoarders’ could couple itself with a show about people that are addicted to buying endless gadgets online and through TV shopping networks.
