Think of the last time you went shopping, were you out with friends and family or did you fly alone? From finding your true style to staying on schedule, shopping alone might just make you rethink how to spend your next day off.
As fun as it is to shop with your friends and family, there is something really special about shopping alone.
Going to the mall with friends and family sounds really like fun. After all, they provide a whole set of hands to help hold your shopping bags. But, the joy of shopping alone outweighs the desire to have someone sitting next to you to chit chat with at the food court.
People who love shopping consider it to be an art. They have techniques to strategize best time to shop. They also know that when it comes to shopping, it’s best to do it alone.
You can decide Shopping Schedule
This is the best part of shopping alone, you don’t have to worry about your friend’s schedule. You’re actually being aware about your time management, which is always a plus point. This is your chance to take your time and shop at your own pace.
You can spend time with yourself
When you are by yourself, you get to be alone with your own thoughts and process, and that means no breaks. Shopping with companion increases the possibility of being talked into something that you don’t want or need or actually like.
You decide which stores are on the list
No need to go to those stores you don’t like, shopping alone means you are on your own to decide what stores you go to and no one can be upset about it.
No Pressure to buy anything
If there’s something you really want to buy but your friend doesn’t like, then they could influence your decision. Shopping alone can be a solution so that no one else can affect you with your own purchases.
Take as much time as you want
Everyone likes to shop at their own pace. When you shop with your friends, you risk either waiting for them or rushing in an effort to not keep them waiting long for you. Which can be very stressful at times.
Focus on your own spending limit
How many times you feel pressured to compare how much each of you spent while shopping. If you go shopping with friend who thinks money isn’t an issue, this could be a problem. Being by yourself will let you step back and decide if that fourth pair of handbag is really worth it when you most needed a pair of shoes.
Sometimes you go out with your friends when they usually have some stated goal: They need a dress. They need a jeans. But on these trips, you are there to catch up and provide your opinion on things. It’s about them, not you!
