I do, if I don't watch it. Easy way to relax from job stress, lol.
I'm a sucker for this also, although my vice is computer components lol. I bought a 9800 GTX graphics card last week just because I was looking at them and my framerate in Far Cry 2 was a bit lackluster! haha
Shopping is my favorite activity. I don't need any compulsion to do shopping. I am compulsion personified.
I get in the mood about once a year, lol. The rest of the time I hate shopping more than most men.
Unless you're talking books.
Compulsive shopping? Yep. Shopping is a source of pleasure ... and as a hedonist, I seek out all forms of pleasure.
Ditto. I plan what I'm going to get before hand, and then hit the shops and get out as fast as possible. I don't linger. I've never found shopping to be fun. But there you go...
Shopping is a horrid activity, standing around gormlessly staring at clothes tentatively choosing between various colours - urgh
Shopping is a stress reliever but saving lately seem to be the better thing to do. The gas price hike that has now become reasonable caused me to limit the shopping and just do more writing and blogging.
For me shopping is not a stress buster or anything like that. Actually i am a compulsive shopper. When i get into shops, usually i shop a lot and my budget goes hay wire. At times i hate this. But just cant help it.
I definitely have a bag fetish, yeah. And jewelry obsession. Oh. I shouldn't forget books. At least as important! Many shelves.
I have been buying lots online myself--just easier sometimes as we are somewhat in podunkaville.
I think it depends on your definition of "slightly compulsively." Is that like sporadically compulsively? Or moderately compulsively but more frequently? Oh heck. I admit it. I have a tendency to come home with wayyy more items than I went in for. This goes for grocery shopping as well as goodies for myself (or gifts for others). I don't get myself into financial hot water with my shopping, but I do tend to go a little overboard on occasion.
Mostly, I am able to justify everything I buy. I don't tend to buy things that come home and gather dust!
