It's not easy to face our compulsive shopping behaviors, and it's definitely not easy to change them. I'm proud of you for even considering this episode, and I know how you feel. 

I've worked on changing my compulsive shopping habits for the past few years. It takes time and support to help understand what is happening in our lives that contributes to how and why we spend compulsively, which is why I reached out to an expert, Carrie Rattle, for help.
