Seriously....what a colossal waste of time and energy. :P

If I never had to set foot in another store as long as I live, I would be just fine!

I just about started hyperventilating in Target this morning. It was all I could do to get through the check out line before I started getting all twitchy. [Me after about 15 minutes in any store --> http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v250/Elle232002/twitch1.gif?t=1216486059 ]


Have I lost my right to be female now with this startling admission? :o

No, you are right on target, in some ways it is a waste of time, and some are addicted to it. I hate clothes shopping!!!! Just spent 3 days I will never get back. I am hard to fit.
Now, when it comes to shopping for others, such as their birthdays, and Christmas, since I love giving gifts to others, it isn't as bad. I actually enjoy Christmas shopping, listening to the holiday music, as I plot what to give them. Other than those exceptions, I hate shopping, it gets on my nerves!!!!

I used to hate it too, so I made some adjustments. Grocery shopping is early Saturday morning - I take my wheeled trolley and go to the local fruit & veg market (we live near the longest food market in Europe), then pop into Lidl, a German cheapie place. It keeps costs down, keeps me out of the big supermarkets (we still have to go there once a month to bulk-buy cat food), and is done pretty quickly when there are much fewer people around.

I still hate clothes shopping though. I only buy clothes to replace stuff that has worn out. For other stuff I buy online where I can.

I like shopping a lot, but never come further than the stores of the shoppingcentre I live on top of...... because of my handicaps and bedriddenness....... I'd love to go to town or to the market, but it's simply not possible anymore..... only other places I come are for the braces or the hospital...... so not much fun there either...... :rolleyes:

Love you,
Mieke :kiss:

My father is a big shopper. If he is with other people, he'll shop until they finally drag him out of the store. :lol:

I used to really hate clothes shopping but I found some excellent stores so it is easier now. I still only go once a year or less though.

The bookstore is the only store I could spend hours in, but I am frugal so I usually just borrow books from the library or buy online.

I don't know if I can put bookstores in the category of shopping. I love bookstores... even how they smell. :lol:

I can handle a little bit of shopping, but it's definitely not high on my list of enjoyable things to do. My mil and sil actually go on shopping trips. I mean they go to distant cities just to shop in new malls (flying or making 8 hour drives!) :o

My husband is a surgical shopper.. get in, get what you absolutely have to and get out. :rolleyes: :lol:

No way! It's adults only, and our kids are old enough to watch themselves while we are gone. It will be like a date night!! Sounds like a beautiful dinner too! :D

Just the dress please! :P

I like shopping although after about 2 hours I start to get very antsy and I have to go home.

My sister on the other hand can shop for 8 hours and think nothing of it.

Being able to shop online must be helpful for you Whispering Grace.

All right....I have to go to the store for some food. If I'm not back in 1 hour, someone send in the EMS! I'll probably be passed out somewhere between the canned goods and the cereal aisle!

Our forefathers came to this country to bring civilization to darkest Africa,,,,, but now many of the people living here are those 50+'s because the younger folk are all emigrating to places like England, USA, Australia, Nieu Zealand..... I'm telling you we as South Africans feel like the Jews.... spread out over the whole world....
