Do you think shopping helps you cheer up when you are feeling low?

It depends on what I am shopping for and how much money I have to sepnd. If it is for household things it usually doesn't effect my mood unless I find a really great deal on something (finding deals always makes me happy). Shopping for clothes and accesories usually cheers me up if I find some really cute things and I don't have to worry about what I am spending (even though spending money on myself is hard for me sometimes). I love to shop for my husband. It makes me feel the best to suprise him with something that he might like - I wish he would do the same for me.

Yes, I always head to the shops when I am feeling down. Even if I just buy a cheap top for £5 in Primark.

I'm not a shopping addict but I think shopping cheers us up when we feel down. It's fun looking for nice things to buy. The nice display captures our eyes and the beautiful sight help us relieves the bad feeling you have. The attention is diverted into other things that's why after coming from a shopping spree, we just feel happy and excited for the things we purchased.

Absolutely yes it will if I'm on the low side mood. Shopping would relieve all of it. It's actually a habit when I'm feeling upset or pissed I'd grab my purse and head for the mall and buy something whatever that put a smile on my face. hehehe..

Sometimes it does cheer me up. I tend to go to the dollar store and that way I feel as if I have really shopped, but did not spend a lot of money. I also like going to thrift stores. When I am broke and still can shop just for a few bucks makes me feel great.

Yes, I believe that it would. Especially if I have a lot of money to shop with. Now that would put a smile on my face and cheer me up. Now that is something to smile about. Getting pretty clothes will indeed make me happy!!

No it doesn't. But i wish it did. Usually all I can think of is the money. And how I should be spending it on other things.Makes me more nervous than anything.
