What are the reasons you shop? Do you ever consider shopping your "therapy"? What are your favorite stores? I shop because: 1. I want to. 2. I can. 3. It makes me happy. 4. I like pampering myself when I can. 5. Eases stress for the moment. Yes, it is a therapy for me. My favorite places are: 1. Target 2. Charlotte Russe 3. Old Navy 4. Victoria's Secret 5. Pacific Sunwear

i shop when i have extra money to spend. i shop because i want to, it makes me happy especially when i'm down, i like to paper myself too, makes me forget about things that are bothering me. so pretty much for the same reasons as you. i like to shop at Kohl's, Debs, Gadzooks, Wet Seal, and Hot Topic.

I love to shop and i think it's a form of therapy for me. When i feel sad and confused, I go shopping. When i'm happy, i go shopping... I go anywhere and i will buy what I want... In the end, i reach home with a smile on my face. I'm much happy and contented after shopping at the mall, either alone or with friends... :)

Ditto. It's a wonderful feeling to be able to get what you want for yourself.

Shopping is the best therapy. There is something about sitting in the chair and trying on shoes that gives a boost like no other?? Smelling all the newest fragrances, running your hands on 100% linen and silk. What could be better?
