1.What are your favorite stores to shop at? I like Barnes & Noble and other bookstores. There is a small record store called Kaos which is nice. I also really like a local thrift shop called New Unto Others. My favorite grocery store is Albertsons.
2.What do you like to shop for? I don't like shopping much. But my favorite things to shop for are books and music.
3.Where do you prefer to shop? Online? At an indoor mall? An outdoor mall? Downtown? I have become a big fan of online shopping. So much easier. I like going to Amazon and finding anything I need and being able to easily compare prices and features. My second choice is interesting, independent stores. Swap meets are usually fun. Big box stores and malls make me feel kind of tense and uneasy.
4.What’s the best thing you’ve bought in the past year or two? A copy of "That's Good, That's Bad" by Joan M. Lexau. It was a book DR remembered very fondly from his childhood, so I hunted one down (on Amazon, of course) and gave it to him for Valentine's Day.
Also, I hardly ever buy clothes, but I found this black shirt from a stack on an endcap at Walgreen's around Christmastime. In that I got it cheap, on a whim, and it makes me feel good when I wear it, I consider it quite the coup. haha!
5.Take What’s Your Shopping Stereotype? – What do you get? Is it accurate?
I got Unique. I would say that is accuarate up until the part about shopping being my way of expressing myself. Shopping isn't really that kind of an outlet for me. But I do agree that I almost never go with the crowd :)
|Your Shopping Stereotype is Unique|
Sometimes you go high end. Sometimes you go low end. But you almost never go with the crowd.
You don't settle until you find the perfect item. Shopping is one of the ways that you express yourself.
You're proud of what you own, and if you change your mind about something, you immediately get rid of it.
