I myself love to go to the malls and do shopping, especially if I had a lot of money. But is it in our nature to spend to get what we want and sometimes buy things we dont need, but we still like to possess them?

Yeah people maybe are really like that, we like to spend what we work for, maybe its our pleasure to spend on what will makes us happy after we bought it. Sad to say that we sometimes become materialistic but in a sense we need those things because we live in a material world, thanls for your opinion.

I love to go shopping, I love new clothes and matching up an outfit, I have had a few bad times over the past few years and I find shopping lifts me up, and seeing as I am always into something new interest wise there is always something I need and of course I get great pleasure in buying little things for other people just on the spurr od the moment...it makes me happy.

Thank you for sharing your opinion, yes its true, shopping sometimes give us relief from our day to day stress, maybe its worth spending what we work for when it give us joy in buying item we like to own.

Yes, I think it's our nature to want to have something. Of course we need everything, especially food, clothes, house, car, handphone, and other else. And it's our nature too, to want to have own special character. So, someone will remember him with his special character, maybe his manner but also by his own daily wearing, such as "he always wear unique clothes".. ^^ So, he will always go shopping to have unique clothes.. =P Human will never be satisfied. He needs more and more about everything. So, it's nature for us to get shopping and buy everything. hehe..
