I hate shopping

I hate Christmas shopping, clothes shopping, shoe shopping, food shopping, any kind of shopping!

I don't think it's the actual shopping, but the people in the stores that get on my nerves. Everyone is coughing and hacking on everything, including each other, touching everything, being rude. Ugh. Can you tell I just got home from the store?

I'll be doing a lot more online shopping.

Online shopping is the best, and sometimes, it's actually the smarter thing to do! I have a membership with Barnes & Noble, and it's cheaper to buy books online than it is from brick and mortar stores. Many others have a "buy x amount and receive free shipping" deals, too.

I much prefer it, especially during Christmas time. It's just less hassle overall, and it saves me time!

I know how you feel, Jeans! It's especially hard to be in "real" stores around this time of year, when everything is on sale and everyone is being so rude in an effort to take advantage of the sales. I've gotten to the point to where now, if it doesn't spoil, I just order it online!

Shopping drives me mad! I get really claustrophobic when there's so many people around and everyone's always all hurried and rude!

I like shopping but I don't like the crowds and the people that are pushy. I am one of those people that enjoy browsing in stores and taking my time but this time of year I always feel rushed. I enjoy the music and decorations and that usually puts me in the holiday spirit.

I hate shopping so much. I get so stressed out and panicky in all the crowds. I hate even doing the weekly food shop these days!

I love shopping! I love the crowds and the people. I love grocery shopping because I put a lot of time into it. Matching coupons to sales, buying healthy foods, etc. - it is fun. I do hate putting things away once I get home.

Well, I'm done. Thank goodness for that. Still haven't wrapped anything but I have plenty of time. I didn't have to buy many gifts this year. We're all sort of cash poor this year so we decided to put a limit on the spending.

I love online shopping and the only real shopping I do in a store anymore is if it is a grocery run or something I just can not get anywhere else. I would order from the smaller stores around here too but most do not offer online discounts (compared to their in-store ones).
