What Is The Medical Term For People Who Shop Too Much?

It’s likely that you know someone who might be a shopaholic.

Perhaps you think that she has a superhuman stamina

for long lines, crowded malls, and late-night purchasing.

Or perhaps you think he just doesn’t know when to quit,

spending way past his budget.

What is a shopaholic?

Shopaholic is an informal term usually applied with humor.

It dates back to the 1940s,

when it emerged as a combination of shop and -holic.

The word shop comes from the Old English term sceoppa (“stall, booth”)

and is related to the Middle Dutch schoppe (“stall”).

The combining form -holic isa version of -aholic,

which you might recognize from alcoholic.

It denotes “a person who has an addiction to

or obsession with some object or activity.”

What is the medical term for a shopaholic?

There is, though, an actual medical term

for people who have an uncontrollable and

compulsive desire to shop: oniomania.

Oniomania comes from the Greek onios, which means “for sale,”

and mania, which means “insanity.”

How do you use the word shopaholic?

Some of you may recognize the word from the popular book series

from the 2000s by Sophie Kinsella.

The series has 10 books

—one of which has been made into a movie, Confessions of a Shopaholic

—and follows the adventures of devout shopper Becky Bloomwood.

As Becky herself says in the first novel,

Shopping is actually very similar to farming a field.

You can’t keep buying the same thing,

you have to have a bit of variety.

Otherwise, you get bored and stop enjoyingyourself.”

Here are examples of the word shopaholic in use:

  • “Bernadine had told Savannah that the girl was a die-hard shopaholic

       and terrible at managing her money.” (Waiting to Exhale, 1992)

      runs the risk of burgeoning into a full-blown shopaholic,

a person so obsessed with buying that they fall into debt and suffer dire personal consequences.” (Psychology Today, May/June 2007)

  • “My boyfriend’s mother drives me bananas.

She’s a shopaholic,status-conscious snob, and I guess I’m not up to her standards because she’s forever finding ways to insult me.” (Cosmopolitan, August 2002)

Compulsive shopping hasn’t been studied

to the same extent as other dependencies or addictions.

However, some people consider it to be a very serious

and widespread problem that can cause grave social, financial, and emotional effects.

But at least it isn’t obsessive nail biting?
