    I Have a Sexist Opinion About This

    I think shopping is mostly a chick thing. There. I said it. Let the flames come. Now, seriously. I know there are a lot of girls that don't like shopping either. But they are a minority. Most women I know *love* shopping. And they can do it for hours. They are always too tired...

    I literally get nauseous when I got clothes shopping. The only exceptions are Ross and thrift stores. If I was a POW and my captors wanted to get me to talk all they would have to do is take me to an Abercrombie & Fitch or a Hollister. I'd squeal so fast....

    But I Will

    I think I liked to shop.   Way back when.   Before I had to spend my money for things like a mortgage, food, college tuition, cable tv.Something about being too focused on the $ signs took away some of the fun for me.   Ok, so being fat hasn't helped.   As any fat woman...

    3 Reasons I Dislike Shopping

    I dislike shopping for three reasons. 1. I'm very indecisive and find it difficult to make my mind up on what to buy. I can spend ages looking at reviews online, or browsing from one shelf to the next trying to work out what the best deal is. Then, annoyingly, I sometimes end...

    Not a Typical Shopaholic Female

    I do not like clothes shopping.  I usually head for what I need or want, make a decision, and check out and hit the road to go.  I do not usually browse through other things.  I just have no interest to. If you wanna take me shopping and see me go crazy, let's go...

    I Don't Like Shopping, I Don't Know Why

    I don't like shopping. I only go when my jeans are so worn out that I can't wear them anymore. And I never go alone. I feel so akward (< I don't know how it's spelled) browsing clothes. Most times I will just follow my sister and be like "ok, just find me something and let's...

    An Ordeal

    I really hate it hate it hate it! I consider it an ordeal to be gotten over. I see no pleasure in browsing shops for things I probably neither need nor want. My sister, bless her, is the total opposite: but I think endless trailing around stores is a huge waste of your life...

    Don't Make Me Do It!

    Shopping is like a punishment. Weekly grocery shopping is just an annoying chore. I don't like having to shop for those "Hallmark" holidays because I end up shopping for gifts out of a sense of obligation, as opposed to having a real desire to buy someone a gift. And no matter...

    I think it has to do with the fact that a) I hate trying on things and then having them not fit. Usually then, I go way overboard and attribute them to my fattiness and b) I hate spending money on things I don't know I really like. So if I see that perfect dress, I'll buy it...

    Can You Believe It??ore

     A woman that doesn't enjoy shopping??  This isn't to say that I've never liked it.  When I was a teen, my best friend and I would go to the mall just to window shop, and when we had money...  We enjoyed it even more!!! These days, though...  I can't...
