Do You Hate to Shop

I am one of those people who really hates to go shopping, and I am a woman. I hate going to crowded stores, I dont like rude people working in the stores, and most of all I hate standing in line. While I have to go to the store out of necessity, I have found that more and more I am purchasing whatever I can online, so that I do not have to shop, are you like this and why?

I hate crowded stores so if I really have something to buy and notice that there is long lines in the cashier and lots of people are still going in then I would prefer a less crowded shop. Not unless there is a sale on that store. lol.

Oh I hate shopping during sales the most, it is overcrowded and there are a million people trying to check out, I send my husband to the store then.

Hi pastorkayte, I am of the same kind. :) I do my shopping for the month on one day! Thereafter, it is only eggs, bread, and vegetables that pull me out of my home - for shopping. As to clothes, I hardly ever find anything that I like. I go with this predefined designs that are only there in my mind. I want them and when they dont seem to be there, I give up, pick some trash. I am careful enough to pick more trash than is required as I wouldnt like to spend another day in that enclosed space. Hate it. Feel claustrophobic about it!

hey I even hate to do that so I have a system, I call my loving husband and have him bring it home. I hate shopping so much I will give my older daughters a few extra dollars to run to the store for me so I dont have to.

Ah, a kindred spirit! I thought that I was the only woman in the world who hated to shop. I used to tell my Mom that I blamed her and my Aunt for that. Every weekend, they'd pile all of the kids into the car and we would go off shopping. Now we didn't have much money so I don't think that they ever bought much of anything. I think that it was something to do. My Mom and my Aunt used to say that they could spend 8 hours shopping without buying a thing. It was a cheap form of entertainment. Puh-leaze. I'd rather stay at home and watch the grass grow. When I do shop, it is for something that I need and I buy the first thing that I like. I just couldn't spend the entire day in the mall looking for just the perfect dress or pair of shoes. Now browsing in the bookstore. That's a whole other story.

Yeah but Amazon has a bigger selection and I love to be able to buy a dozen books for the price of one at bigger stores.

I don't shop often at all (money issues), so when I get to go shopping, it is usually because I know I can buy something. Of course when it comes to grocery shopping, I hate it! But shopping for books, shoes, clothes, I do enjoy it. If I did it all the time, I think I would get tired of it. But I'm like you, I do more and more shopping online!

I agree, it takes less time to shop and it is delivered straight to my front door. I get what I need without lines, rude people and it is quick too.

I am getting tired of shopping and there have been times when I have hated it. I also don't like dealing with crowds and rude people. But I recently lost 17 pounds so that has made we want to shop a bit more. I just went out recently and bought myself some new clothes and that was really nice. I actually got to buy clothes that I thought were cute rather than trying to find clothes that would hide my body flaws. I have to admit I did enjoy that.

Kool beans but I hate shopping even when I was extremely thin I hated it, but I think it is positively awesome that you lost 17 pounds.
