It sounds like your wife could be a little manic. Bi polar. If she is going on these shopping sprees, it is very likely. I would mention all of this to her doctor. They could be treating her for the wrong thing.
Take those credit cards away. All of this debt is going to make things at home more stressful. Especially for you. Talk to her doctor. I think it is very important that he/she knows what is going on. They might be able to treat it and your life will be a lot better.
I know that you think that if she is on the computer, she could be doing other things. That isn't always so. It isn't much of an effort to sit at the computer. And everything is at your fingertips.
So be patient, talk to her doctor, and take things one day at a time. I wish I had some resources for you. I don't know much about
bipolar. We have a bipolar forum, you might want to read a little there and see if anything sounds familiar. Most of all, get those credit cards away from her.
