What I mean on this is that, shopping all the time you have money. There are people who loves to shop. Every payday or even if it is not pay day time as long as they find something interesting for them they want to buy it. Sometimes they go impulsive. Are you a shopper? or don't like to be with the crown in a shopping mall specially when there is a big sale? Just curious to hear your story.

Hi there and smile! I was an avid shopper before. It was addictive. I want to shop every weekend and use my credit cards a lot. I never think of spending wisely. It was a lesson for me now. Shopping is not bad but it can really be addictive. Lets just make it as a way to reward ourself but not too much. Just shop for the things you really need and not just the things you want. happy mylotting.

To that idea, I agree.. just shop the things you need forget the wants.. it will come later when the money is more than enough to buy extras.

I love shopping but I tried to avoid going to malls when I know I don't need anything....I will be tempted so easy and I will always end up buying something which I know I don't need.... I don't like going also to the mall when there is a big sale, I hate crowd, makes me dizzy!

I also love shopping but not to the mall. I always go to the places where it is cheaper than the malls.

I don't really like shopping because sometimes you tend to buy things you want, rather than things you actually need. It's a bit greedy, and, ofcourse, your bank account suffers a certain loss.

Well, I do shop a lot but I must see to it that the things I buy are useful or I can really use it. If I can't use them, I would not buy it even if they are so cheap and on sale.

Hello Bebs. When I go to our local mall, I would like to walk around to see if there is something that interests me besides what I intend to buy, but still I try not to buy anything that will not be used once bought. Recently we have had a new and huge mall in our small town and I love it for it thousands of items on those rows and rows of racks or shelves. It is some pleasure to do some shopping there. But I don't go alone. I go with my colleagues.

Yes, there are many people who ended up buying things they don't really need but they just bought it because it is on sale. They think that maybe someday they can use it. That is totally a waste of money. It this time of economy crisis, we should be wise in spending. If we don't need it, then avoid buying it.

I don't like big sale. I know some men and women love because there are great bargains to be found. Actually I don't have problems with the items, but the crowd can really make me all confused. Like I would forget what I want to buy and all that. I prefer to come and buy something whenever I am in the need for something. Like new pants, or shoes, and some writing utensils and stuff like that. Otherwise, I'll not really splurge.

I wouldn't say I was an avid shopper but I do like to go grocery shopping, I think it relaxes me. I don't however like to go clothes shopping or anything like that, I don't have the patience to try on clothes all day and usually I don't ever find anything that fits, so I think thats the reason why I don't like to shop for clothes. Most of the time I don't have extra money to shop when there is a big sale anyway..haha.

Oh!! we are the same. I have no extra money to buy all those sale if there is... I just go to the thrift stores and everything there is on sale for me. I can afford to buy the stuff that I need in there because they are so cheap.

I consider myself a practical shopper. I can wait for sales and promos. I don't go gaga over designer stuffs and I can control my spending when I'm out shopping. I know what I need, what I want, what can wait and what can't.

Oh!! that is really smart!! many people are not like you. They just buy without thinking as long as they are on sale even if they don't need it.

Hi Bebs I am a regular shopper but I don't just shop because I have the money but I shop because it is needful. I do shop a lot during weekends but I make sure all the things I buy are really of necessity. For my clothing and shoes I buy them when there are sales. I find it wiser to wait for Sales which happens every pay day. 50% off on items are big savings so I really do wait for that but not to the point of braving the crowd. I hate long queues and crowded places. I don't think I can enjoy shopping that way.

Oh!! I know my friend you are a wise spender. That is great!! There are people who don't mind if the item is expensive as long as they like it, specially if it is branded? But when you wait for sale, I know there are lots of branded items in there.

Indeed there are people who loves to shop, and goes shopping all the time they have money; generally we call them 'women'.* Everybody loves to own new things. Some people visiting shops even if they wont buy. I'm not really one of that type, i go to shopping when i must and i'm usually done at the first shop. *Only a joke.
