I must admit I don't find household shopping a chore, rather a challenge. However, I don't fall into the category of shopping for shopping's sake. Folk who consider travel an excuse to fill up an extra suitcase astound me. I think there is enough "stuff" in the world without encouraging the manufacturers. I tend to give consumables as gifts eg tickets to the theatre as a birthday gift for my grandchildren. That's my favourite way of shopping. What is your relationship with the commercial world?
I would be if I wasn't environmentally conscious! I'd buy all the jewellery and knick knacks I could stuff into my house, then get a bigger house and more storage to fit more. Luckily, my environmental conscience is bigger than my desire to accumulate more stuff!
In general no, I'm not a shopaholic, and am pretty restrained when it comes shopping. I can be quite thrifty. There are times when I sort go on a spree though. I might buy one or two things, and then I get the taste for it.
My relationship with the commercial world, as you put it, used to be glossy!
Now that I am older (I seem to say that a lot on here!), I have nagged at my children about NOT getting a skip bin when I die as I have many valuable collectibles.
I USED to be a shopaholic however now seem to spend more time doing voluntary work (though this is in a shop!) and writing on here, I don't get so much spare time, in fact I get very little spare time, so I have stopped shopping for the sake of it.
I am also not in the same financial position I was a few years ago, when I used to just spend for the sake of spending.
