    Default Calling all shoppers...

    I can't stand shopping the local stores around the holiday season and especially the crowds! ACK! Crowds drain the life right out of me. Are there others here that feel the same way I do?

    I am generally a skinflint, but I will spend money when the need arises. I do enjoy spending hours and hours shopping at thrift stores. At the grocery store, I'll spend hours and hours comparing prices or nutrition. (I use to be a coupon-aholic so maybe you might understand).

    I love browsing and comparing items online.

    I can't stand malls.

    Your thoughts?

    It really depends on my mood. Mostly I don't like crowds and messing around looking for stuff, but occasionally I don't mind.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    None of the options fit, really. I love shopping once in a while but I'm certainly not a shopaholic, and I rarely buy things I don't need. I like finding good deals.

    I'm not a fan of malls and crowds. I don't mind rummaging (sp?) through boutiques, provided they aren't crowded. I tend to avoid the whole shopping scene during the holidays. I finish most of my Christmas shopping before Thanksgiving and I'll order online some during the busy season.

    As far as spending money, I'm fairly cheap when it comes down to it. I buy almost everything on sale & shop in thrift stores on occasion.

    Sounds like me. I really enjoy it when I'm in the mood, but when I'm not, it's rather tiring. I don't usually mind crowds or anything (except when I have to wait forever).

    And I only like to shop online for certain things. Books, cds, etc, stuff that is going to be the same, regardless, I'm happy to buy online. But clothes, especially, I really need to try myself, cause often something as simple as a poor type of fabric will make me completely change my mind.

    Like anyone, I enjoy good deals, but I'm not a big fan of thrift stores, really.
    I actually really enjoy owning/wearing fairly expensive (or very good quality) new clothes, but I do have to love it before I can justify spending that sort of money. I would buy them more often if I could afford it. :rolli:

    I don't always find that a crowd drains me if its a crowd of people I am not familiar with, and if I'm moving around and they are, too. Its not like being at a party where you are in a huge crowd and you actually know some of the people and theres no where to run, unless you want to leave.

    I buy stuff when there is soemthing I want, and I generally just get it and leave. I'll look around a bit to see if there is something else I can get later, but generally I just get it and leave.

    A friend of mine once told me I don't understand women and shopping, despite being a woman. If that gives you any idea...

    I like to go in, get what I came for, *maybe* glance around if I see there's something that could be better, and go home.

    I hate shopping.
    I don't even want luxuries. I don't want to buy gifts and I don't want to get any gifts. I hate crowds and time pressure. I try to make it perfectly clear that I'm out of the whole holiday business.
