I'm not a shopper....

Like most other women, I like shopping. However, UNLIKE most other women, I usually can't buy anything. On the days like today, when I go somewhere with the intention of spending, its even worse. All I spent on was the car park and a balloon for Aaron. Its ridiculous! I really wanted to get myself a cleanser, moisturiser, pair of shorts and maybe a pair of shoes. I looked for all of them. Saw some that were of interest but somehow, nothing 'called to me' today. Thats how I decide if I'll buy something....."Is it calling me?" Occasionally, I have a good shopping day when everything just shouts at me. Its rare though. And I can usually tell if its going to be that sort of day if I buy something within the first 15 mins.

Now is this a good thing or a bad thing? Some people believe in retail therapy but thats not something I can rely on. I might end up more frustrated AFTER walking my legs off all day long and returning home empty handed and dehydrated.

Some might like retail therapy, but after the bills...

Well, I AM a shopper! I especially enjoy grocery shopping, but also visiting bookstores and computer shops. I don't often buy things other than groceries (well, books, of course), but I enjoy wandering the stores and window-shopping.

LOL! Bilbo, Its good that you own up to being a shopper. Most men don't even when they have bought more than all the women around them.

Is "Sally" your mom reading your blog? :-) What I hate is when I'm not supposed to be shopping and I end up busting my bank account. :-(

Some men do spend more especially in the absence of a woman...."achoo!".....I am making someone sneeze again...;)
