Yes, I like shopping up to weather. I don't like going outside in hot and cold weather, so at such situations I do shopping by net.

I'm kind of shopaholic, I enjoy so much buying new things every time, even If I'm wearing them just a single time. In my spare time, I would like to spend in Shopping malls, trying on new items and buying them. Also, I prefer purchasing in the online market because it is really suitable, you will avoid the crowd and spend fewer hours.

I like to go shopping for clothes and shoes, When I had a salary I often go shopping for something such as new clothes, shoes for me, for my children. I sometimes go shopping when I would like to award myself when I make the achievement. Now by the COVID-19, so I don't go shopping, I want to save money. Because my job is not good, my company has some trouble with our products

Yes, I fancy shopping. Is there a woman who doesn't like to do it? Is there a husband who isn't worried when his wife says she is going just popping out for shopping? The only thing that can stop her, sometimes, is a tiny budget.

I like to go shopping. I like to walk around the big store, I like the smell of new clothes and shoes. I really like this feeling when you are already tired and finally go into the coffee to eat something before going home.

No, I don't really enjoy shopping that's why I go only if I need something. And I go straight to it, I don't spend much time at the shops. I enjoy more going for a walk or jogging. I also like going to a café or a restaurant.

I like shopping but i don't often go to shopping. Basically i go to shopping twice in a year to buy clothes and shoes. As a Muslim we celebrate two main festivals in a year, and in these periods i like to do shopping and give presents to my relatives like new clothes, shoes etc.

Really, I don't like shopping. That seems a woman hobby. Personally, I do shopping only when I need of clothes or shoes for a particular event. Moreover, where I am accompanying my wife for her purchases, very much I miss.

I went shopping after i had a salary. i'd like to buy something like trousers, dress or T-shirt once a month. Because of the hot weather in summer, i enjoy a white or pink cotton T-shirt, which is comfortable and cool. Sometimes, i also buy some pair of shoes.

No, I don't. Because it takes a lot of time and makes me tired at the end. I usually go shopping when there is specific event, like: Eid Al-Fitr or graduation day for example.
