I can remember a time when I was in college and I noticed that every Saturday I went to stores to shop. (I didn’t necessarily buy; I just liked to look.) I asked myself why I always went shopping like this. I admitted to myself that I was doing it because I thought shopping was fun. I asked myself, “Self, what would you do for fun if you could not go shopping?”
I had a really hard time thinking of a good answer to that question. My sheer poverty of recreational ideas was enough to demonstrate to me that I needed to find additional hobbies and resurrect old ones.
So. If you are feeling blah, what do you do to give yourself a pick-me-up if you couldn’t indulge in “retail therapy”? If you want some fun, what would do you do without shopping’s thrill of the hunt? If you can’t give a good answer, you should probably put the kibosh on shopping for a good while. (Instead, you could have a de-cluttering party!! Woo-hoo!)
