Shopping and Forgetting
July 2, 2010 6:58am CST
I was in the store yesterday and I just went in there to get two things and ending up getting way more than just one thing, Does this happen to you? And one of the things I went in there for I forgot and ended up having to go to another store on the way home for the thing I forgot which was aspirin, and while I was in that store I found myself just wondering around from aisle to aisle. Does this also happen to you? I was just looking at things knowing I could not buy them, just looking and I did not realize hoe much time I had spent in the store, Do you think shopping like that helps with some kind of therapy to help us relax?

Yep this is always happening to me. I should write a list really, but since the last time I did this, I ended up forgetting to take it with me, I have not really bothered since. Sometimes I remember something just when I am at the checkout packing my bags, thats ok, if I have my eldest son with me, cos he can run round the store to get what I want, but more often than not I normally remember when I get back home. I actually like shopping in general, especially if I am having a bad day, sometimes it is good to help me relieve my stress. Retail therapy I believe they call it, and I am all for that, when I have some cash lol!

It happens to me occationally and Im agree with u that shopping is kind of relaxing.So when we are enjoying shopping or simply wandering along aisles,it's not a job.So...I think forgetting something is acceptable for me.If that thing really matters,a shopping list will do us a lot of favor I think.
