I have great fun going out with friends and for shoppping it is even more enjoyable. I do go out for shopiing with family memebrs but i don't get that excitement and fun in shopping with friends. How about you? Do you prefer shopping with friends or with your family members?

I guess family members, I do shop a lot with my sons. I would like to shop with my friends but I don't have that many that like to shop like I do. I have gone out with them before but we always end up splitting up and metting back later.

Much as I love Mr Ruby im afraid to say that I dont like going shopping with him,he wants to rush around,and dart in and out of the shops as quickly as he can,but like many men he doesnt like shopping full stop.If I was going to choose then I would choose to shop with friends,or maybe my daughter.Then theres time to browse,rather than take a route march lol.If Mr Ruby and I go shopping then you can be assured the outing wont last long,up an down the street,in and out of the shops,no cup of coffee or spot of lunch,and that the outing over with.

I actually prefer to do it alone. I would rather shop by myself rather than with anyone friend or family. The reason being I usually do most of my research before I go to the shop. In the shop I like to directly head to the correct section and pick the item, bill it and come back. With Friends and family it takes ages to finalize on any product as they want to try out everything before they pick anything. Regards, Ram

i like shopping with my family because i don't get to spend too much because it's my parents who shoulder the expenses when we buy food after shopping unlike when i'm with friends, i get to pay all the food i eat.

Now I prefer to go shopping with my family. I regard it as a family time and it's fun. I have already worked so much, I need to spend more time with my family when I don't have to work. I love China

I prefer shopping with friends. Shopping with my mother just drives me absolutely crazy. She's all over the place and likes to continue going back to look at the same racks all the time even though she's looked at the rack several times. Plus, she tends to try and buy a lot of stuff even though it's not needed. That drives me nuts. I prefer shopping with friends because they offer me input on what to buy and if it would really be useful or not.

Well, if you talk of window shopping, then I don't usually have any preferences. I enjoy every moment of it be it with my friends or family. I like shopping mall hopping. But if it really comes to actually buying stuff, then I prefer my family. I believe their opinion is of greater value than any of my friends'. And I've invariably always found out that what seems good for me and my family also went down well with my friends. So, no other choice there, isn't it? Cheers.

Both. However, I don't spend too much time with friends anymore. Between their crazy work & school schedules, and the times I can/want to go, no one can make it. I enjoy going out with my sister when I get the chance.

I like shopping with anybody, really. But, I really prefer to shop with my friends because we don't usually get a chance to do that together. Usually, I just get phone calls, so when we get a chance to go shopping together, it's a real treat.
