I knew a lot of people who are so attached to material things and their reasons vary. Some pursue success and wealth over other things like love to feel secure and to provide a good life to their families. Some are just being challenged by other people's success and want to be like them not basically because of insecurity and some are just to show off and to fill the void they feel in their heart. But whatever our reasons are, buying things we really don't need are waste in the end.
What makes you materialistic?

One can look to blame their materialist woes on anything external, or take responsibility and take steps to find a better balance.
We live in a society where we make an attempt to define who and how important we are by the stuff we own/have/buy, especially when it's very expensive!!

Perfectly said. Most people are completely brainwashed into thinking this way.

Depression?
Depression?
That could be one of the possible reasons too. When you want to feel valued and recognized by other people, buying stuff could somehow get their attention. Especially if you are buying things for them and not for yourself. That feeling that somehow you matter.
