We all have felt that shopping actually makes us feel good. It perks us up and the possession of new things gives us a strange new high as we psychologically feel more confident. What do you feel?

I enjoy buying new things but to actually go out and buy them just annoys me so in terms of shopping I just can't stand it especially clothes shopping. Being six foot I struggle to get clothes long enough to fit so often have to buy specially made trousers which are a little long and need taking up. Nothing prepares me for shopping though from the moment I drive in I immediately become exasperated with the traffic and bad drivers, then parking can be a problem if I don't get in town early enough. Once i'm in and parked trekking around the shops to find cloths which fit and I like are a problem and often find trying things on just causes more problems. The mirrors are never that flattering and I feel fat and unsexy when I look at myself in them so no matter what I try on I don't feel too good about it. Nowadays I much prefer to shop online if it's something I need. Only recently just purchased a new swimsuit online which although cost a little extra for postage it would only cost me the same for parking my car so i've not really lost out. With Christmas so close now my christmas prezzies are definately going to be bought over the net. The crowds in town are already starting to pick up and I don't think i've got the patience to withstand another round with those aggressive shoppers that want to get a bargain or the last few items on the shelf. Sorry about my little rant but to say shopping is fun...Hmmmmm????!

Shopping entails more than just buying... it's the whole interaction with the public, sharing of ideas with friends as you browse, the thrill of the hunt for good prices, that sort of thing. Perhaps I'm showing a bit of fruitiness, but shopping is awesome!
