Shopping Addiction

If you are secretive about how much shopping you're doing or you've tried to stop and can't, you may have an addiction to shopping.

We speak with Dr. April Benson, a psychologist who specializes in treating shopping compulsion.

Her forthcoming book is called "To Buy or Not to Buy: Why We Overshop and How to Stop."
