When you found your boyfriend in bed with your roommate, why did you storm out of the house and head directly to the mall? Hmmm?

Do you indulge in such “retail therapy” behaviors? Then you may be a consumerism addict. No worries. You’re not alone. Hordes of people stroll about town every day with giant (and often designer-labeled) monkeys on their backs, and the majority of ’em are completely oblivious to it. But is getting your fix from a new pair of shoes that dangerous?
