Are you a shopaholic?

Hi, my name is tasches, and I am a shopaholic. I try to avoid the malls but went yesterday and it even smelled like Christmas! I was transfixed ....

  • I don't think I have a problem, but I do like a little retail therapy =)

  • I absolutely hate shopping, the only shopping I do enjoy is at thrift stores and most of time I walk out of there with nothing.

  • I use to be when I wasn't married , had no children and no responsibilities. Now I feel guilty if I buy something and it's not for my daughter.

  • I'm guilty of it a lot of times, especially during the holiday seasons. Like you, I get blinded by the lights, smells, and all around atmosphere of the holiday and tend to go a little nuts. But, it's for my children. I want to make sure they have an excellent Christmas like I did growing up.

  • What's the opposite of a shopaholic?

    I do all my Christmas shopping in one day, for preference in one place. I avoid the mall --I hate the nonstop noise, the super-dry air, the zillions of dead-eyed people milling around aimlessly hoping to find something novel or heart lifting... it's like watching too much porn. Fun for 5 minutes, but after a while, it all looks and smells like desperation, which is about as sexy as having fingers snipped off with garden shears.

    I'd rather take a seat, read a good book and enjoy a cup of tea any day.

  • Yes I am. I actually have withdrawals if I don't go into at least one store a day.
