It’s common for a person to go through bankruptcy through no fault of their own. This may be because of a divorce or because of a psychological problem, such as compulsive spending. If you think you could have a compulsive shopping problem, it’s important to get help sooner, rather than later. Some of the signs of out-of-control spending include hiding or otherwise ignoring bills, lying to others about your spending habits, and using shopping as a form of therapy.
