Gaby talks to a compulsive buyer to understand the real motivations for over-shopping. April Benson, one of the leading psychologists who helps compulsive buyers, introduces us to the emotional and psychological reasons for shopping. And to get a personal look at it, Avis Cardella, author of "Spent: Memoirs of a Shopping Addict," talks about her own experience and motivation for compulsive buying.
