How To Make Shopping Enjoyable
While to some people shopping may be such a chore, many enjoy shopping for a variety of reasons. You get that giddy feeling inside, welling with anticipation on what clothes you would get to buy. Most women enjoy trying on different outfits and going through racks of merchandise until they find that one item they have been looking for. Also, you get that sense of satisfaction after a day of scouring the different shops and stores knowing that the things you have bought were all worth the effort and hard work. You have to admit that despite the fact that our body complains with pain from all the walking that we do inside very big malls which often take some people the entire day (most especially if they spend quite some time in every store that the mall is offering), we try to ignore it and still continue with our shopping. I will offer here a few tips that I myself also do to make my shopping a relaxing and enjoyable activity and avoid it being such a tiring one.
I strongly suggest that if time is in your hands do your shopping in the morning where there are less people and where you can easily find parking space. Try to shop on weekdays and avoid weekends when the mall can be pretty crowded. You will also come to notice that most of the sales people of the different shops are much more accommodating and friendlier in the morning when they haven’t been too tired, unlike if it happens after the end of the day. Avoid going after rush hour or during lunch breaks when some people get an hour or so of break from work and head off to the mall to purchase something. It is also important that when you go shopping you know what you are looking for so that your full attention is focused on those items that you need to buy.
Purchase those items which you have intended to buy for the first place. After which you can go about window shopping or just looking for items that may catch or fancy your attention. You will enjoy shopping more if you have the money to spend or you have really set aside a budget. Having the budget wouldn’t make you feel guilty of your purchases. It is not advisable to be always charging purchases to your credit card when you cannot even pay for them.
