Do you like material things? Are you a shop-a-holic? I like material things depending on how I'm feeling and what it is.. but I'm not much of a shop-a-holic at all. How often do you go shopping? How often do you get a new pair of shoes? So far this year, I've spent only about $700... and that's including my tuition. What about you? Do you go to the mall every weekend? Why or why not?

I am not a fan of shopping. I usually get what I need and I am done. Also, I would rather buy online for somethings then going to the store. I like things also, but I do have to pace myself when it comes to things like that. Because what I like is not always cheap. But, I am not a spend thrift.

I'm not so much of a fan myself, but once in a while for the right things, it would be fun.

I get that and I agree. I also think it is fun to shop for what you want, but to shop for no reason is a waste of time and money.

I like a few very basic material things. I am not a shop-a-holic. I shop once a month. I have social anxiety and so once a month is about all I can muster. I like to shop online and use Amazon and HSN mostly. It is fun and alot of times you get better deals online than if you went into the store.

I haven't been able to go shop due to my anxiety too. But on a 'good' note, I've been saving and being good. So like you, I take advantage of Amazon a lot too.. since I like to read.

I like material things and sometimes I feel guilty about it because there are things in life that matter more.But I can't help it and it makes me happy...Especially clothes! I don't think I am a shopaholic and I try not to give all of my money for clothes...try is the key word:P

Hahah, that's good you try. But you are right, some of the material things do make us happy. We just gotta learn to balance it all out.

I do love shopping but I don't go for expensive ones. I seldom go to the mall. I usually shop online. Don't forget to visit www.lifo.com it is a social network for girls that focuses on the latest fashion trends celebrity gossip, social causes, beauty and health and lifestyle issues.

i used to go to the mall for fun and loved to buy things but i guess i am getting older and find i have too much stuff. also, i have no money either. i think it is better to be content with everything i have. as for shoes, last month. they were summer shoes on sale for $5- (which i will put away for next summer!)

$5 is a deal! I've accumulated a lot of things too and realized how much we just end up collecting so much junk. There are some items I've only used once.. and I don't know what to do with it anymore.

You know what, I hate go shopping, especially in the mall. I just hate it, I wasted many hours just browsing the store after another store, I totally waste my valuable time. That is what my ex girlfriend like to do all the time. I finally can take that with her, and I decided leave her. She is totally shopaholic, and she likes to spend my money on shopping like that. I would deserve someone better than her.

Yes, you do deserve someone better. I hate shopping too.. it's such a hassle when there isn't a good enough item to buy. It gets really frustrating when you're looking for something and it's not there and you have to move around in a crowd of people. Very tiring.
