Shopping is okay I guess, I just don't like to take too long. I don't end up buying much when I'm out, I also happen to be very picky! Whether it be for clothes or food (I don't eat anything with additives & preservatives).

I haven't been out to shop in a really long time actually, the last time I was out was to buy a gift with my brothers for mother's day...

The past few weeks I've been buying stuff online, like old video games/consoles such as the GBA and Protein powders.

I love shopping with my girlfriend... we would often go to malls or just in general stores because she buys tons of clothes (her drawers barely closes anymore, lol...). When I'm with her I tend to buy stuffs too like movies, Pokemon stuffs and other things I find neat. If I'm not with her, I usually don't go shopping...

Gawds, this happens to me as well, that's why I hate going to clothing stores.

When I see something I really want, this is my general reaction.

Yeah, I love shopping. I buy whenever I can within my means. Usually, if I need something, I put it higher on my priorities list, like school stuff, then lesser things, like games, to the bottom.

Well. I don't mind wandering around ebay for Pokemon stuff. But otherwise no.

I generally hate shopping. :x It's pretty boring, especially when I'm shopping for clothes, but looking around electronics or toys is always fun. I'm boring.

I love to go shopping for books. I could spend a whole day in a bookstore. Especially used book stores. Ohmahgawd. I also looove going to the supermarket in Japantown and thinking about all the wonderful tasty things I could be eating. Clothes shopping is fun, too, if it's not just for necessities.

I don't really shop online. It's boring because you don't get that serendipitous, amazing find you never knew you wanted until you found it while looking for something else.

I don't often shop, because I'm frugal haha. I honestly kind of hate spending money unless I have an absolute need. I do go fairly often to the pet store for cat food, litter, and various other supplies which are nessesities to keep my pet cat alive and healthy, though I try to save money in that area too.

I actually love going shopping, but only if it's with friends. I absolutely hate having to go alone.

I like going clothes shopping, but I only do it on a seasonal basis. Every year though it seems to get harder and harder for me to do.

My mom generally gets the groceries so I usually get what I want on a bi-weekly basis.

For tech and whatnot I generally shop online, but usually for clothes I go to a store because I normally wanna try stuff on.

I guess I could say I love to go shopping because I usually am wanting to buy a lot of unnecessary stuff I don't really need, and usually when I get ahold of a good amount of money, I usually think about going beyond how much I spend, but luckily I'm able to stop myself and save up.

I cannot stand shopping for clothes or food. The only shopping I enjoy is for media, like CDs and books, but I usually shop online for those.
When we shop for clothes, it takes so long I get frustrated. And grocery shopping is just annoying lol

I don't mind taking a look around in stores every once and a while, but when I know that I have to actually spend money, I really don't like shopping. I think I don't like spending money in general, so when I have to buy new clothes or something, I just try and get in and out of the store as quickly as possible once I have everything I need (although, this has left me forgetting something many a time).

Depends what I'm shopping for. If for clothes, I hate it because I'm so picky about what I wear. For groceries, I hate it too because my family takes forever. Now, for electronics I love love LOVE! Who doesn't love buying a new toy? However, I do have to admit that after spending a buttload of cash on a fancy gadget I do get depressed. Bye bye, paycheck. ;;

I don't like going shopping because usually I don't see anything besides girly ass clothes or something like that. Why can't I just shop for flannels and t shirts? I guess I should start shopping at guy's stores when I learn to drive :\

I don't like doing groceries, but I do like shopping for clothes, though. Unfortunately, I don't get to shop very often because of my busy schedule. When I get the chance to go out shopping, it usually takes me more than four hours to get everything done. I know that it's not good to waste this much time, but when it comes to buying new clothes, I could be very picky.

I suppose I like going shopping. That's all there really is to do here anyway. Just go to Target or something, haha. But yeah, I enjoy finding clothes for myself or games and such. I don't like grocery shopping though. Well. If I'm alone it's fine, but my mom likes to stand around forever and compare everything and talk to everyone in the store that she sees.

I ****ing hate shopping.

Strangely, I don't have a problem if it's a "I just need to pick up a few things" situation, but if I go shopping with the prime intention of buying something like groceries or clothes? Dear god. There really aren't any words that I can use to describe how much I loathe shopping than shopping sucks balls. Plus I don't really like spending money on things like that.

I love the Mean Girls picture.

Anyway, if it is clothes shopping, then I go to stores. I need to try on items and make sure it fits (I go fall/winter shopping before school; spring/summer shopping during spring break).

Most shopping either than clothes is online, when I buy books, video games, etc.

I never do grocery shopping.

All in all, I enjoy shopping if I have money to spend.

It depends, really. My mom and I rarely go shopping for things I actually like. But on my birthday, she manages to save up enough money so I can go on a shopping spree. All in all I find shopping pretty fun.

I like shopping most of the time, and I like buying clothes, which some people find odd. I just like the feel of getting something new to wear. However, I rather prefer to shop more online for other things, eg Electronics. Like I'm not going to go in store to pre-order Pokemon X, I'll just do it online. It's quicker and easier, and just more relaxing.

Best reference, omg.

I always get really excited when it's time to go shopping, since I don't get to do it much. (Any money I get automatically goes to the internet bill.) Half the time, I just look around the store instead of buying anything. xD But my favorite place to go shopping is Hastings.
Although, I do occasionally buy things online when I have a specific thing I want.
