For you or for others?

I love shopping. I shop for myself and I also like to shop for my bf or mum. When I go shopping I always end up buying something for someone else apart me. Does it happen to you? Or if you go shopping you just buy for yourself?

Yes it's called christmas shopping and birthday shopping. Unless I see something that just reminds me of someone so much I do not normally buy things for other people unless it is as a christmas or birthday gift.

I buy for myself and for others when I shop. I took my granddaughter (she's 18) shopping last week. We hit all the stores she likes and some I like. I bought myself 2 pair of dress slacks and a black leather purse. But I really went to buy her something. We ended up getting her a bunch of pullovers for shorts, socks, a dress outfit of flared short pants and a long blouse and about 3 camisoles. And I am sure there was much more I bought her. About every store we went into, we bought a couple shirts because they were on sale. That's how we like to buy! I just love to buy for her, her brothers and my daughter.

Welcome, newbie! When I go shopping, I love to buy for other people. I hate shopping for myself, though, and I usually stick to the iternet for the things I need. Even if I intend to buy myself something, I almost always buy for other people instead.

I always end up shopping for myself and then instead of buying myself something, I end up in the other sections of the store to buy either my daughter or one of my 3 boys something. Even when it comes to groceries, I get myself groceries but tend to pick up stuff for my 19 yr old who doesn't live here and also I always get things my boys want~ gatorade, special K bars.

Lately when I've gone shopping I have gone just for groceries so the groceries are for everyone. I dont usually buy presents and things for other people unless I am in a tourist area then I might do that. I like to buy things for people that are different from the everyday type items. That is why I get them in tourist areas.

I hardly ever buy anything for myself. I mostly buy things for my kids. I love going shopping for them that is why I like Chirstmas so much. I also really enjoy buying htings for my mom. I already have her grandparents day gift. It is a handmade angel pin.

I always end up buying something for someone else when I go shopping. Even if it's just something small. I love buying things for people so you can imagine what I'm like at Christmas time! I just get a buzz, plus I usually end up feeling guilty when I've spent money on myself on stuff I don't really need.
