Dropping shopping

Well, it depends on what kind of shopping we’re talking about. One woman’s paneer is another man’s karela.

Clothes shopping

I’m not a fan of shopping for clothes mostly. Only when a top is in the intersection set of the Venn Diagram of I need it, it’s affordable and it looks good on me, do I part with my money.

Surprisingly, my husband likes shopping. He wants to know what’s in the market, what’s the price. Banker psychology.

Treat yourself

I once dragged a friend on a shopping marathon from which we came back emptyhanded. Had to buy going to see boy clothes- we all know how difficult that is.

Buying kurtas, which I lovingly call uniforms, is also a pain. I have so much stuff in my cupboards that I don’t want to buy any more clothes, as that will trigger an avalanche. Maybe literally. But I meant I’ll have to keep my cupboards tidy.

That’s difficult with all the more interesting things to do in life.

Book shopping

Books are easier to buy. I can just open a random page and if it is appealing, I usually pick it up. I buy them rarely now, because where’s the time to read?  All my reading energy goes on reading tweets. Wonder whether we got the attention span of a goldfish before or after social media.

Occasion shopping

My husband buys a gadget which he is also often keen on. We’ve settled in comfortable patterns. I gift him a massage, as that’s one thing we are reluctant to buy for ourselves.

What’s your favorite four letter word? Women would probably say sale!
