I just go shopping to buy some new books. I don't like to buy clothes or to look around anything else. I usually go weekends or when i have free time. If I can't even buy a book, I still go to bookshops.

great article, thoughtful and informative. I like shopping, when I enter the shop I look for clothes and I try them in the changing room. but still, I prefer global online shopping apps rather than offline stores.

No I don't really enjoy it, I rarely go for shopping to buy clothes or shoes, nowadays I try to buy online everything I need, but I recognize that to buy shoes it's difficult to buy them online because it's not easy to get the right size, so I prefer to buy shoes in a shopping centre rather than online. I don't go shopping very often, generally I only go for shopping when I really need to, not for pleasure.

Thanks for the lesson.
Great site!

I don't really like shopping. However, once I go shopping, I usually lose control to buy anything that I like the first time I see it. Shoes are usually quite durable and last a long time, so I often go shopping for clothes.

I don't like shopping too much because I could end up buying something which isn't really needed at that moment. I like shopping twice a year when I think is necessary.
