Are there certain items that, no matter how much of that item you already have you still can't help buying more of it and would consider yourself addicted to buying? I used to be addicted to buying socks for some reason, i think it's becuase you know they will always fit and you don't have to tyr them on, whereas other clothes may not always fit which can be frustrating! These days i seem to be addicted to buying more make up and toiletry items! I just can't seem to resist the temptation to buy more even though i know i ahve loads. I'm also addicted to buying earrings as i just love them. I have hundreds of pair already though.

I'm not addicted to buying anything. I rarely buy myself anything at all. My husband was addicted to buying tools. He ran our credit card sky high. Thankfully that has stopped and we are now paying these things off.

will it varies for me. when i get the bug for something it stays a long time before i switch to the next one. but i am cell phones and watches addict. I have truck loads of cell phones. some are out dated and obsolete. some are top notch. watches, i have a drawer filled with expensive watches. it's so full the poor drawer is about to burst. I have three different variations of the omega james bond watch already. and if that's not enough, when i don't find a certain watch am looking for, i go and ask the company to make one for me. @ any price!

Interesting topic, I am afraid people over here will laugh at me for revealing my addition to buying something. What to do I have no other option but share as I had already mae up my mind to respond to this topic. I am addicted to buy underwears for me. Everytime I go to market or shopping plaza I buy new underwears hoping it would be most comfortable. I do not seem to be satisfied with any for the reasons not known to me still and I like to buy them in different colors. Everything I buy underwears I ensure that I am buying a different color underwear.

i am addicted to buy bargain items... i seem not to be able to resist myself whenever i see bargain items no matter what it is and at the end i ended up collecting junks in my house... i know that i shouldn't buy something if i don't need it but i just can't stop myself to buy it when the item is so cheap...

I already have lots of bags, but when I'm in the shopping mall, I still find myself looking for good-looking bags as if I don't have enough yet. I am also addicted to buying very feminine handkerchiefs as I don't normally leave the house without one. What else? well, I also love candles of different scents and shapes.

I'm addictive to buying handkerchief.It's comfused to explain why I'm so addictive to buying handkerchief but I find I will be impatient,insane when I find that there is just one pack of handkerchief in my pocket.I will buy at least one pack of handkerchief when I shopping.I'm interested in different brand of handkerchief,different patterns on the pack.I love them,really love them.

I am addicted to buying purses. I have a whole closet full of them. But when I see one with a cute design on it, or one that I haven't seen before, I just HAVE to have it. It drives my hubby crazy! My daughter loves it though, because sometimes she gets my old not-so-used purses.
