I hope U all are enjoying woman's week, which is an important tribute to women all over the world/globe. Since Women are daughters, mothers and wives.!!!

They are housewives, students, to top notch professionals! Afterall, women can achieve anything they put their minds too!!! 

 

Today I bring to u a topic that is closely related to woman and  that is..????



Shopping!

 

From hitting the mall with your girlfriends on a Saturday afternoon, to holiday spending on gifts, shopping could be called one of Womens favorite pastimes, however, these days  a growing number of men seem to enjoy this hobby too!

 

Well, 4 most people, it means some new clothes for work or a small trinket for a friend. 4 others, however, shopping is much more than an enjoyable pastime, and in some cases, it is a real and destructive addiction that can turn into a financial disaster!

Since, March 12th is official shopping spree day I thought why not have a topic/discussion relating to a favorite pastime of  many esp women..

So the question tobe addressed/asked is....  ???

    Are U one of the millions Shopacholics in the world?

 do u use shopping as a quick fix 4 the blues/sad?
 do you spend more than u can afford?
 Are some of ur purchases unused or hidden?
If u see Sale do U buy the item whether u need it or not?
 Would ur life be richer if u were shopping less?
Have ur attempts to change been unsuccessful?

Nice topic and I guess, I am going to be the only 'different' girl.Embarrassed

Are U one of the millions Shopacholics in the world?

Nope!! In fact, I barely go shopping.  Usually it's my friends or my Mom who go buy stuff for me and I'm always fine with it. The funny thing is that I've never 'went for shopping.' Like it was never planned.  All the times, I go out to get something for school or just anything and if I like something I buy it.

 do u use shopping as a quick fix 4 the blues/sad?

Nope, sometimes it helps too but it's just the thought of going out not necessarily shopping.


 do you spend more than u can afford?

That hasn't happened yet and hopefully won't either... since I never go for shopping Dad gives me a little more pocketmoney than he should so I always have surplus of money just sitting in my pocket. LOL
 Are some of ur purchases unused or hidden?

Hmm... Hidden? Well, if you can consider my diary then yeah LOL But I don't think I buy anything that I haven't used.. Maybe a couple things that  I just used for a few days.
If u see Sale do U buy the item whether u need it or not?

Hm.. If I see sale, I sometimes do and check out what's on sale but never buy it if it's not needed/wanted.
 Would ur life be richer if u were shopping less?

LOLLOLLOL Maybe my parents would be because then they would give me less pocket money I guess. LOL
Have ur attempts to change been unsuccessful?

Actually my Mom's attempts to change me and make me shopaholic have been unsuccessful and you just need to ask her once and she'll start complaining for 10 hours! EmbarrassedLOL

no Naina, u are not the only one. count me in!!Wink

    Are U one of the millions Shopacholics in the world?

I am allergic to shoppings, most of the time, if I have to, I go, pick the thing I want, and come back. This is one thing which my friend doesn't like about me. She is a shopacholic, and i have strong aversion to it. Embarrassed 
 do u use shopping as a quick fix 4 the blues/sad?

I only use shopping if needed. Embarrassed

 do you spend more than u can afford?

well, i usually shop with "khula Haath" (i don't know what u call it in angrezi) so affording doesn't come there. When i have to buy something, i get it. most of the time don't even check the price. Big smile

 Are some of ur purchases unused or hidden?

naaa, i buy only what i need or want. Tongue
If u see Sale do U buy the item whether u need it or not?

I never buy from sales, most of the time, the shoppers put all the junk out. so it is better to buy it when it is in good halat, then to buy on sale, when it has become disposible or one time use.

 Would ur life be richer if u were shopping less?

Nope, it would be the same. Big smile

Have ur attempts to change been unsuccessful?
No i am happy with what i am Tongue
