quotations about shopping
For some, shopping is an art; for others, it's a sport. It can be a vice and it can be a cause. Some love it. Some hate it. Rarely is someone indifferent.

I be looking for labels, I ain't looking for love
I shop for purses while I walk out the door
Don't cry, buy a bag and then get over it

With a list from A to Z
Everything I needed
For a happy family
Walked through the doors

Grabbed a silver buggy
And I boogied down the aisle

Shopping is often unwittingly used as a technique to bring the self into sharper focus. It is fueled by the belief that the perfect shirt, belt, shoes or sofa will finally supply the answer to who the shopper is and will increase her worth ... Most women are not aware of this latent meaning of shopping, and as a result, they shop unconsciously. This leads to further confusion without getting them the result they are seeking, which is not about the shoes, the shirt or the paint color per se, but about their identities.
