Yes, I want to buy something for myself when I shop, first i buy something for myself, and when I see something nice for another person that I love, I buy that thing for him/her too. especially when I have money, I dont hesitate to buy things.

Well, I just shop when I get to be in a big city. Like cebu and manila. I live in a province so we dont have much nice malls here. I like to go to the malls alone because I dont need to wait for my companion to finish looking, fitting and buying some stuff so it will be faster for me.

Usually, I go to the mall to buy something I need. I'm quite impulsive when it comes to shopping that's why I seldom go to the mall to avoid overspending. You are so right when you said that it's a really good form of rewarding yourself and making you feel good. It makes me feel good to buy something whether it's clothes or shoes with my hard-earned money and after the busy and tiring days at work.

Thanks for the welcome. I haven't tried shopping online. Well, for my old stuff, I usually give it to friends and relatives if they want them.

I dun always buy things for myself.. haha =D Most of the time, i will only be doign window shopping and nothing more.. UNless i have to shop for a gift, or i need something important for myself, only then i will buy.. haha =D Besides, i'm not one whom really enjoy shopping.. IT's more like passing time to me.. haha =D SO, with the money to spend on shopping on impulse, i will rather be using it for nice food and coffee.. lol =D

Hi acie, I usually would like visiting the nearby shopping mall after back from work on the last weekday. other than enjoy the free air con there I have great interest to have a look on all those lovely stuffs which I favorite. Shopping mall is the best place for me to get myself refreshed after a hard day work I usually enjoy window shopping before getting my wage. I will get the essential stuffs with offered price only even I have money in my pocket. After hanging around for some time, my husband and I usually would like to have a pause sitting in the food court to enjoy the beverage as well as the delicious desserts available there Happy posting!

I rarely go to any malls coz they invariably cause extra unplanned for expenses LOL I go only when I need something to buy of have some planned extra cash to spend… even then, I rarely buy anything for myself. Actually, its what peps you up and for me, food is much more exciting than any stuff on sale Malls invariably have a variety of food on offer so everytime I go to one, I’ll definitely head towards the food stalls and treat myself to something new (though we definitely have dinner planned for later)

Like you, I am always ecstatic when I buy something for myself. Whether it is just a small stuff, not so expensive thing dress, but as long as I really like what I bought, it makes me feel awesome. of course, I can't do that each time I wanted to buy something, money is not a joke. I also have to save for rainy days. So I make it to a point to save first and if I have extra to spend, that's the time that I will buy something for myself. I like window shopping, while it is hot outside (it's summer here in our country) so staying inside the mall is helpful way to cool down. But there are times that I ended up buying something when I window shop. So there are times that I avoid doing window shopping.

Whenever I go to Mall I just window shopping, just enjoy walking and having chat with my friends or my girlfriend, its rarely that I buy something when I go to mall, I do buy food to eat while window shopping, I think I go to mall when I feel really hot inside our house, we live near a Mall name market market so it doesn't matter if I go there every time I can just walk from our house,

I really do like to buy something for myself from time to time but it isn't something that I do on a regular basis. I typically spend my money on things for our children. There was a time that I would visit the mall on a regular basis and when I would do that I would typically get a little something for myself. However, since we've moved into our house, it isn't as convenient to get to the mall so I don't visit except for a couple times a year and most of those times I have a specific agenda in mind and only visit the stores that I need to get something from.

I always get something for myself. Why not treat yourself every now and then?

It is not necessary for me to buy something for myself when I got to the malls. Window shopping is already good enough for me, but what really satisfies me even when I am low in cash is when I buy food for myself---even if it's just snacks. After that, I can home feeling satisfied and my day complete :)

Hi! thanks for making me realize this! When I go to malls, I always feel the urge to buy even if I am low on cash! :) I never want to leave a mall without a thing or two! Women do really love shopping! It's takes us to another level of happiness! :) Enjoy shopping!

I try not to buy anything whenever I go to malls, except for food of course. Hehehe. Nowadays, I spend my weekends on malls, just to escape the heat outside. I just go window shopping, and I don't bring cash or credit card, to keep me from buying things that I don't really need. LOL.

Hi, it is really hot from where I live in lately so at time I just go to the mall to get away with the hotness of the day. Though at time I go to the mall to buy something for myself or something that we need at home but lately mall is like a place where i stay to get away with the hot summer day and to avail of the air conditioning for free... LOL

It depends whether we need anything or not. When there is nothing i need i dont buy just for the sake of it. It makes sense to budget our limited money on those items which are essential and most needed

I don't always have to buy something when i go shopping. Sometimes I just want the experience. When i am in the mall to shop, I am always looking for something for someone. When i buy for myself, it can be an unexpected treat. We need to reward ourselves as well as doing for others.
