Some days I find shopping so relaxing. Just wandering around and looking at everything even if you aren't buying anything. I love looking at the new things that have come out and are on sale. And grocery shopping I don't mind either. As I love seeing the new foods that are always coming out. My little boy seems to enjoy it too especially when we visit the toy department. What about everyone else, do you enjoy shopping and find it relaxing or do you find it stressful?

I love shopping. And I can truly say that I have an addiction. I love window shopping, browsing around and of course purchasing. Times that I find it stressful are when the stores are over crowded, slow and I mean slow service to the point they don't even acknowledge you and are very rude. Then well of course I will be rude back as I don;t need attitude from someone I don't know. But for the most part it is very relaxing and enjoyable.

The only time I ever find shopping to be stressfull is during the holidays. I always enjoy going shopping, especially when it is for me or my sons. I just don't like it when there are 1,000's of other poeple shopping at the same time then it becomes a bit of a hassle.

Generally, I am a person love shopping. Especially during the sale season, I always find the good bargains and spend a lot at the end. However, before the Christmas, I don't feel relaxing while shopping. Because I have to prepare about 30 Christmas presents every year, which is the burden for me. I have to not only save the money, but also buy the lovely and special presents that my relatives and friends may like. It indeed becomes a stressful task instead of shopping relaxingly.

I would say 50/50,if shopping is done for me then I am very relaxed, on the other hand if the shopping is done for my brother or any of my family memebers then in that case I am very stressful.

Shopping is stressful especially if there is too many people at the mall.
