I hate shopping You heard me correctly I cannot stand how painful shopping at a retail store can be The stores can be intimidating time consuming and a complete waste of money On the other hand I love shopping at a thrift store WhyFirst of all I love estimating the value of items without money factoring in Say I have 100 and I walk into a clothing store Sure the shiny floor glistens and the people behind the counter hold a strained smile wide as a hammock Bright neon advertisements seem to shout at me and Im drawn in slowly to the racks of clothes But then I look at several price tags each article of clothing costing at least 100 I gawk at the price of a single tee-shirt and it occurs to me that perhaps Im minuscule not worthy enough to shop leisurely at such a fine shopIn contrast if I take that 100 with me on an expedition to many yard sales and thrift shops I end the day feeling like a queen The average yard sale price for good quality clothing is 3 and a thorough search I can bargain and try to persuade the seller to mark down the price My excitement for striking a bargain or discovering a hidden treasure just doesnt exist in a retail storeAnother problem with shopping at stores is the pressure I shudder when the salesperson speaks a hundred miles a minute to try to lure me into buyingIs there anything I can help you with they always ask I shake my head and continue looking around at the bright advertisements The salesperson shoves a sign in my face Did I mention we are having a special membership deal on shipped beautiful aqua shade Opalina dresses No Well theyre your color and itd look great on you Then the salesperson ushers me into the closest changing room and tosses clothes
