18 Things Only Shopping Addicts Understand

There’s nobody easier to sympathize with than a shopaholic. It’s hard to be a broke college student and obsessed with all things retail. If you relate to any of the following, you’re more than likely an addict yourself. That’s okay, though—let’s own it! 

1. Deciding to add four extra things to your cart when you only need one to meet the free shipping minimum

2. Having to unsubscribe from your favorite store’s emails to resist the temptation

3. Justifying your shopping habits by saying that you’re not into worse addictions

4. You freak out every time your paycheck gets direct deposited into your account

5. When you’re having a bad day you immediately grab your laptop and start online shopping

6. Crying a little every time you have to go for the knock-off instead of the brand name

7. But then you splurge when you feel like you need to treat yourself

8. Sometimes you applaud yourself for going thrifty and bargaining and justify the fact that you spent $50 more than usual
