Shop till you drop, apart from being a website where you can buy the latest products online, is the current trend.
As you all may know by now, after celebrating Thanksgiving Day last Thursday and being stuffed like turkeys with cranberry sauce, yesterday was Black Friday -the busiest shopping day of the year and the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. People queue until shops open and offer good discounts for their products. It's an excellent opportunity to go on a shopping spree.
The thing is that I couldn't wait to Black Friday and I had my own one two weeks ago, when money was nearly burning a hole in my pocket and I decided to buy new clothes and shoes. I had that wonderful feeling of being satisfied by the amount of times I keyed in my PIN number.
Well, let's comment on consumerism and your habits.
- Do you particularly enjoy shopping?
- Are we getting used to spending a lot of money on things we really don't need?
- How often do you use your credit / debit card to pay for your shoppings? Do you think one day in the near future we will be living in a "cashless society" and we will pay for everything with credit cards?
- Have we gone crazy about shopping?
