I am a woman who hates to shop.
Maybe it has to do with the care and upkeep of the stuff I've gathered over the years.
Maybe it has to do with the consumerism and me-ism that clogs the mall and squeezes the "Merry" out of Christmas.
A small flood, four inches in my basement, convinced me a few years ago that stuff shoved in a basement, even though the intentions are good, doesn't belong there.
Even though I threw away useable items that I didn't use, and felt awful about it, I didn't stop shopping.
I justified it by telling myself that I'm a bargain shopper. But then how much of a bargain is it, if it gathers spider webs and mustiness?
I don't even want to think about the bargains I put on a credit card and carried there, accruing interest, but not joy or contentment.
Yes, I'm a shopping hating woman. Care to join me?
