Shopping habits

A few days ago JJones posted about her online shopping and the fact that she puts things in the cart and never actually checks out. At this exact moment in time I have 1 coat sitting at JCrew.com, some memorabilia at washingtonpost.com, a dress at whiteandblack.com and a few things at gymboree.com.

Why do we do this? I think I get my shopping fix from browsing and almost buying and then the beauty of it all is that I don't have to close the deal. Why do you?

It's Veterans Day and there are lots of sales this weekend. So happy almost shopping to you gals out there - have fun!

I do this all the time. Sometimes I hope that things will go on sale. Other times I just want to think things completely through before my purchase. Is this a need or a want?

I have no idea why I do it...I'm just glad I have some company. :-D

I have a friend who recently told me that she goes to Target (this goes beyond virtual shopping) and fills up her cart with things she wants. When she gets to the checkout counter, she says to the cashier, "I've changed my mind, I just want this one thing from the dollar area." She gets her Target shopping fix, and doesn't spend the $$! I think it's hilarious!
