I did that with my friend few days ago. We planned this. We want to buy shoes and nice t-shirt. We even planned on buying pink t-shirt together, with different design but same color. Oh boy, that sound like a great shopping. We carried few enough money with us, because we know we will spend it like crazy...LOL. So, we went to shopping mall. Walk around to clothes department and shoes department. We tried even few clothes and shoes. We laughed and chatted while we pick few clothes to try on. But nothing comes in desire. The colors were too bright, the design was too poor and etc. Guess what ? We end up empty handed out from shopping mall. What a laugh ! We laughed about it all day, and we told our experience with people at home. They also laughed at us. What about you ? Ever experience this too ?

I always have those days too, JC. Before stepping out of the house, there's this list on my mind that I needed to buy. I always ended up buying nothing at all. Either there's no available size, the clothes seems not good for me, and so on. But hey, we should be happy as we have save our money that way.

Hey well this happens to me all the times when I go to shop something specially required urgently.....LOL. I have always observed this that whenever I am out just for a window shopping and not required anything at that moment I use to like so many things in the market. But whenever I am out for a real shopping for myself, then the whole market is out of stock :-(

Many times! I often go to the mall and sometimes I see something and then if I don't like it or don't have enough money then I end up not buying it. I get disappointed when I end up going home empty handed.

yes Ive done that once lol I went shopping for a leather jacket and couldnt find any that I like at a few different stores and I walked away not buying anything the only time I go shopping is when I want to buy something I would never go to the mall if I didnt have any money it would be to hard to look at all those movies and games and knowing that I cant have any of them lol.

Oh yeah..It happens to me many times as i plan to buy something eventually end up with empty hand..LOL Most of the time this incident happens to me when i decided to shop for my outfit. I was so exited before going thought that i would find my desire clothes .I walk around and try on the clothes from one store to another yet i couldn't find that i really like.Some of the outfit i like the color but size is too big,or the pattern is ugly .... Sometime i don't have any plan to shop for clothing but surprisingly i end up with buying whole bunch of clothes which is beyond my expectation...It's funny...:)

Yup... I think it's normal... Most of the time, when I want to buy something and I found the thing that I want. Suddenly I feel confused why I want to buy it in the first place (except for foods ^^)... And then I just walk away after looking at the stuff. And that's that. I don't buy anything even though I want to buy it in the first place. It's strange eh???

I always end up doing this thing.I decide many things before going to shop,but when I am shopping,I am blanjked out.Which one is the best.I am totally lost.When I ask my Dad he says I will not guide you because I always curse his choice after I get the stuff at home.

That happens to me a lot, especially because Im a person who window shops first before buying because I want my mind to be made up when I buy something rather than wasting time window shopping at the same time. Im also a person who has a fixed budget and who will keep a portion of my money for a single purpose alone. If what I had planned for is no longer there when I come back then I would have went to the shopping mall without buying anything.

I have come across such a situation many times. At times i use to start late in the evening and i dont find time for selecting a good product and product liked by me with all the qualities i expect in it. So, i use to return home without buying anything.

Yes, I have experienced this. My friend and I too went to the mall planning to buy a pair of slacks and blouses to match. The thing is, since both of us were on the cheap side, we were always checking on the price and commenting on the expensive tags that before long we realized that a couple of hours has gone by and we still have not bought a single item!LOL! So we decided to just have something to eat at a fastfood. While eating we were discussing and laughing so much about our misadventure. We decided right there that we should not go shopping together since we won't be able to buy anything.:P

i experienced that already..i had planned to buy this blouse i had seen a day ago, and so i went back to buy the blouse but to no avail, because it was sold out already. I try to look for another or different blouse but nothing got my taste, so i went home empty handed too.
