I wasted my entire day shopping!

I finally got my school refund check put into my bank account on Friday and I've long decided that I definitely need some new clothing. I really need some new shirts and some other items and since the school gave me some extra money that today I would go out and try to find some new clothes to wear. Well, we headed to the mall today and spent a few hours walking around and we found nothing that would fit. A lot of the stores that were in the mall have since closed because of the economy. We came back and decided to look around at Walmart for awhile and they really didn't have anything there either. We left home at 3 today and did not return home until 9 and I came home empty handed. I just feel like it was such a wasted trip. Have you ever gone shopping with planned purchases and returned empty handed? Or are you the type of person that goes out not planning to buy anything at all and comes home with several bags full of items?

I think that has happened to all of at least one time or another. That happens to me even with food. I find nothing I desire to eat then leave the store with nothing and then go with my mom not planing on buying nothing and end up with half a cart. I have alot of problems getting clothes that fit me since I am overweight and do come home empty handed and depressed sometimes because I couldn't find anything I liked seems if it did fit it looked like something my granny would wear..and not the hip granny's ..lol

I am plus sized myself and that is part of the reason why finding clothing is so hard for me. It's terrible really. It's OK for you to be skinny and thin but it's not OK for plus sized women to look good and fashionable just like those skinny women that can by rather nice clothing. I don't get it. I find it rather annoying really. It's like the stores are telling us that we're not good enough.

I feel the same. Just because we are overweight doesn't mean we don't care what we look like and that we like to wear large printed stuff or large flowered stuff. It is getting harder to find stuff the message maybe is that they want us to lose weight if we want to wear the nicer prettier clothes. Sometimes I feel like a blob and that they don't care whether we dress nicely or not. I will never be a size six though..And the stuff we can wear that is considered nice is so expensive we can't afford it.

Ooooo, I hate that, money burning a hole in your pocket and you can't spend it on anything cause nothing looks good. I'm a shopper who goes out looking for something and I'll shop till I find it. I guess you'll have to wait and get some stuff later.

I'll probably end up having to wait until next weekend when I can go to a few more stores and see what they have. Many stores were having clearance sales and just did not have much of anything either.

[i]Hi angel, It happened to me last December, first week before all the huge sales..It was my hubby's decision to take me out there but as I was roaming around, I cannot see a great deal and for me it is useless to buy when I feel it is just too high(price) for me and so, we left without getting even a single item! LOL![/i]

I hate going to places only to come back empty handed because they never have anything I like or would ever ever wear in my life. I've come back empty handed several times because I couldn't find anything that I would want to wear. But there have been times I've just been too tepmted in a store and come back with something completely different than what I wanted to get. But it's a rare occasion when I come back with a ton of stuff. It's usually just a few things.
