No wonder you're in such a good mood today! You've been busy!
#1 above is my reason.... well, the not-eating one anyway. Really, i could forget to eat when I'm busy ...
You are a wise shopper...you know how to spend less for more...certainly you know what you want in life!...any chance to show us your horoscope bear...it must be a muti-talented bear.... like master, like bear!

I shop for buying foodstuff, necessary commodities when I go out alone.... But usually I don't go out myself.... So I generally served as an acompany and servant when going shopping with her.,. ...
So you are her "busboy"?...hahahaha....one good way to build up your muscles...there is an old Chinese saying ...."an excellent chief can handle 3 woks at the same time"....how many shopping bags can you handle at one time?:)
I only shop when there's a big sale sign on the window. Though I might not need anything but the sale force pulls me right into the store.
It appears that this is the current trend in Consumer behavior...no sale, no deal!
I often look for good deals and on-sale items...boxing day is one of my best shopping days....I can get many items for less than half of the original price...I think we have gone beyond just buying things that we need...we are also buying on the bases of what we wanted...sort of like buying a piece of psychological satisfaction or pleasure! :)
I seldom shopped unless my love specifically asked me to, so I could carry all her purchases. Once, after me doing this for a day, wandering around Beijing Lu in GZ, with me moaning all the way, and wondering why she tried everything on she could and went back to the first store to buy the original things she tried on, she gave up on me. From that time on, she'd go shopping with the wives/gfs or fiancees of my friends while we sat at a popular corner store in Tianhe and drank beer, awaiting their call to come and lug something back home. Needless to say, I hate shopping, unless it's absolutely necessary!
The simplicity of it all is this...give woman money or credit card, lettem go shopping and buy what they want, don't care if they buy for you (athough they invariably do) and you"ll spend less time sleeping on the sofa after they've finished and you're still sitting with friends at the corner store drinking beers at 01:00.
This is my experience and it worked
