We all have to do some shopping for food, basic clothes, household goods or other essentials. Some people just love to shop and may find it easy to spend far too much on things they never use. There are those who have shopping under control and then there are people who dislike or even hate to shop. Or perhaps you belong to the group who just don't get the term 'retail therapy'.

The 'love to shop' crowd
These days most things can be bought online but many people who love to shop still prefer to go to the mall and come home loaded up with bags of goodies. Stopping for coffee and cake at a fancy coffee shop may be part of the experience. They may like to have a friend along to give advice and to share the day out. Hmmm, if it's a day out let's do lunch. Or they may like to shop alone. Those who recognise they are shopaholics but are not ready to address the issue are likely to shop alone to avoid censure from others.

It's a matter of finding the balance so one can enjoy shopping but not go overboard. Buying something can be fun and add some flair to one's wardrobe or add to the decor of the house. A new plant or two from a market will brighten up the garden. Buying from an op shop can support a worthwhile charity. Spending way over your budget is stressful and depressing.

Shopping can be a social occasion
A shopping expedition can be a social occasion even if you shop alone. Interacting with shop assistants and other shoppers can be good for a person who spends lots of time alone. Seeing different things can be energising.

Bargain lovers
Some people just love a bargain. They will walk all over town to get the best price. Perhaps they search the internet for sales or make lots of phone calls enquiring about prices and if they can get something extra thrown in.

While some find haggling over the price stressful and avoid doing it, others love it. At garage sales some people love the challenge of trying to get a lower price even if the asking price is very low.

The 'hate to shop' crowd
Yes, there are some people who are addicted to shopping. There are many who have a balanced approach to buying things. Then there are people who hate to shop.

It may not be the shopping itself they dislike but the fact they have to deal with people, perhaps crowds of people.

It could be they hate spending money because they are afraid of running out of cash or perhaps they have chrometophobia, an irrational fear of money.

The 'I don't get it' crowd
Some people accept a certain amount of shopping is unavoidable but they can't understand why anyone would choose to spend an afternoon at the mall, or even shopping online. They may be minimalists who would rather spend their time and money on something else.

What's your attitude to shopping? Myself, I enjoy a bit of retail therapy especially op shopping. However, there are many other things I enjoy doing as well and I don't 'live to shop.'
