Window Shopping! A favorite habit of my teenage and A tool to get an idea of "purchasing costly items" that I could never purchase lol:) At the moment, I don't go specially for that because I don't have much time for only window shopping... I seldom visit the market for buying day to day needed items. In order to get maximum of the round, I try to go for those items that are not needed at that time. I even know that I have no much money if ask the price and a deal is being finalised. Frankly, while for shopping I visit the market, I try to do Window Shopping as well in order to quench my desire to buy;D Do you visit market for the sake of window shopping? How often you go for solely purpose of window shopping?

i wonder. even if we already have lots of windows at home, we still need the desire to go window shopping... nah, kidding aside. yup. i love to go window shopping. especially when i feel bored or stressed, i go to the mall and look around. it's nice actually. i find new designs, prices, new on fashion and everything. like trying to figure out what to buy next time i get back to that mall and atleast, know how much money i needed to get the stuffs i wanted next time. i love going to the mall even when no need to buy anything... i can be myself and people won't just mind me. it's in the mall when people mind their own business. haha. happy myLotting aliasad!

i am not a window shopper, not in the least. i just have to have lots of money in my wallet and ten only i could go for actual shopping. otherwise i just cannot hang around looking at things from distant. for this reason alone, i donot do much shopping, only once in a while when i can splurge myself in the glory of buying. LOL..

I love window shopping but I have a different term for it, I call it extrava-glancing LOL My office is in the mall so it's very convenient for me if I want to go window shopping. I don't do it often anymore though. I feel like I've seen everything there is to see since I come here six days a week.

I don't like going too much to the mall just for the sake of window shopping. I usually window shop when I am actually shopping for things I need to buy. I windowshop to canvass the things I would want to buy in the future like an expensive watch or a jewelry. That way I could save up for it because I would know the price range.

well, i don't also go to the mall frequently just to window shop. i just go there when i feel the need to. hehe. silly reasons, huh? and yup. that's the best way to say it... canvass the prices about things you wanna buy in the future. and have time to save money for it. so, the next time you get back, you can buy what you wanted. just that at times, when i do this, the item which i am saving money for is already sold out!

Yeah that is the downside of it....once I have saved enough for the item I want to buy either its already out of stock or I changed my mind and I want to buy something else. :)

I enjoy window shopping very much as I am always curious to see what is out there and what is on sale, even if I do not buy anything. I like to see the latest and greatest things and just like to get out and look around. Window shopping can give me ideas as far as home improvements, clothing I may want and other things. Plus maybe I will run into some old friends while I am out looking around. I usually go window shopping at least once or twice a week.

I can't go for just that purpose! I usually end up buying something, and chances are I don't need it at all! If I need to research the pricing on something, I can do that online. but if I end up in the mall or at the market, I am going to buy something. So i usually don't go! I have no will power against shopping!

When I lived in a big city I used to window shopping all the time, it was on my way home from work and since I walked to work I had plenty of time to window shop, I never buy my clothes (or hardly do) in the stores, I am too afraid that they will be generate clothes (others will wear the same thing) so I buy most of my clothes on eBay, but I do enjoy going window shopping and seeing what is out there and what new styles are coming.

I used to do a lot of window-shopping before! As in I can spend a whole day in the mall just walking around and not buying anything, but snacks.. hehe. But for me, I do this because I look for great deals of items. Like, if I find something I like, I dont buy it right away. I have this tendency to be too impulsive. So what I do is I window shop for a day and then I go home. If I still like to buy it the following day, then I will go back to the mall and buy the item (Lucky if it is still there!). Since we moved out, I rarely do this anymore. I still have to travel a long way to get to the nearest mall so what I do now is list all the things I wantto buy and when I am there, I'll check it out. But I really enjoyed my window-shopping days. Specially when I was pregnant, it helped me burn out those building up fats..

to shop or not to shop? - i prefer to shop for my needs and avoid window shopping for my wants. :)
i don't do much shopping and i often avoid window-shopping. i must be one of the very few people who always pass by the mall after work (everyday) but only visits the mall once or twice a month at the most. -lol- these days, i only visit the mall if i need something very important or if i'm going to buy a personal gift. i'm not much fond of "what's the latest" stuff. i try to avoid crowded areas that depicts a lot of noise. on mall areas, it's hard to make phone conversations also. and in my experience window-shopping just makes me so tired coz it's time-consuming with very few desirable results. it only increases the number of wants versus the needs and i would hate to be an impulsive buyer coz it might just disfigure my budget. -lol- i'd rather take a rest after working so hard at the office or play with the kids at home. or sleep!!! i lose a lot of sleep everyday so i need to re-energize more whenever i have spare time.:)

I don't do window shopping. I don't like looking at things I know I can't buy right now. When I have the money, then I might do some window shopping but mostly I know what I want to buy so I just go and buy it without doing any window shopping.

I personally can't stand to shop at all let alone take the time to window shop. I like taking walks but I don't like walking around people looking into windows and such. I live on a fix income right now so I also don't care to see things that I know I won't be able to afford.

Yeah during my weekends i do window shopping. It helps in purchasing the things you like the best. It takes much time but you can buy the things of your taste without thinking once or twice..

I only go window shopping when I want to replenish my dreams. I don't like shopping, only buying. Usually, when I want something, I'll go directly go to the store grab it and buy. I don't spend too much time at the mall only if I was with my wife.
