Yesterday, I plan to go out to buy something at the mall. It was my most awaited shopping day. When I get in the mall i was so excited to buy stuff but as I was moving around to buy the stuff that i like nothing had taken my fancy and went home with nothing. Did this ever happen with you? that you were so excited to buy something but you couldn't find anything? please do share.

sometimes when i'm eager to buy something or am in the mood to shop i might come back empty handed. it could be that i didn't find anything i liked, or if i did- there's no size, things like that.

Once I convinced my mom to take me to claires because the neopets were on sale... well, I couldn't decide on which one, so I decided to wait. Well by that time mom had found an old friend and was talking with her, and I had to wait, so I asked mom for two dollars (of my own money, she tends to hold onto my money for me, I call that a convenience) well I went to the arcade, The machines I wanted to use were in use, So I tried one of those light machines where you have to match up the lights, I won. I won their grand prize, which was an IPOD :P lorl I was psyched.... But I didn't buy an item I originally came for so I think this fits :P

That has happen to me many times I feel your frustration! Your so excited and then it just goes down the drain! Usually I come home empty handed because at the store I will talk myself out of it saying I really don't need that or I would be wasting my money and then when I get home I wished I would have boughten it!

That is true my friend. There were even times that I would talk myself not buying it and I Would just tell myself that if the goodies are still there the next time I go to the same mall then it is meant for me. But when I visit the same mall the next day and the goodies are nowhere insight I am so frustrated telling myself that I should have bought it. My bad!!!

I live in a town that rains at least once a week. I went to the mall to find some really cute rainboots and they had alot of them ,but none caught my interest. I decided just to buy some even thought I didn't really like them and the very next day i saw the perfect one's in a store that I go to all the time. I was so mad because I really wanted to buy my shoes in the mall and then the perfect one's were in my small town.

That is really irritating when that happens that you bought something that you don't like much and the following day you saw something that you would have dream of having. Grrrrr... I can feel your sentiments and I have experience that same thing several times. if only I can return the goodies that I bought. I have learn from it though at this time I would make sure to buy the very thing that I like of and not the so so thing.

I went to the mall once looking for a special ring, but did not find what I was looking for. I had to go back to another store where I had seen rings and bought the one that I was originally looking at. i cant believe I didnt find one I wanted in the whole mall.

Well at times that really happens when we can't find something that we fancy to buy and we exhaust too much of our time looking for something that we like. What is ironic is when we don't plan to buy something and we don't have enough funds to purchase that is when we find the stuff that we like most. Ironic indeed. I think that is part of life. hope you enjoyed the ring that you bought.

I have a thing for wanting a lot of things when I don't have money. I don't know why that happens to me though, but I prefer imagining that I can buy up a lot of stuff when I don't have money in my pocket. But when people give me money, I just can't touch it--it's almost like physical pain if I spent cash on something I really wanted. My concept of thinking is that I can just save it a little while longer, and who knows? Maybe I can find something I really like, but then not have enough cash when THAT time comes. Right now I have almost a hundred dollars [Php3000] shopping money in my wallet. A thousand is actually meant for a dress and the rest part for whatever I like, but I can't take it. All that money put to waste? No freakin' way, dude!
