What kind of shopper are you?

Happy Boxing Day to all you living outside the US. And happy “return that stinky holiday gift” day for everyone living in my country. (And many of us have to work today!) I have to admit that until a few years ago, I had never even heard of Boxing Day. And still now, I’m not too familiar with how it’s celebrated. I believe in most countries it’s a big shopping day. And one thing I do know… that’s shopping 😉 So how about a shopping quiz for this Boxing Day?

What kind of shopper are you? I have to admit that I like the finer things in life and that I have very expensive taste. Because of this, I rarely shop. There’s so much I’d like to buy, and it’s not cheap. I’m a huge window shopper, but in practice, I try to be a minimalist. What about you? What’s Your Shopping Stereotype?

Take  What’s Your Shopping Stereotype?, and let me know what you get. What kind of shopper do you think you are? And maybe even what kind of shopper would you like to be? I’d personally like to be one of those shoppers who can inexpensively find amazing things at thrift stores. I have a friend who knows how to find a stylish pair of jeans for $7. I’d really like to be that kind of girl, even though I’m totally not. I don’t have the patience for it, I suppose 🙂

I’m also curious, how do you celebrate Boxing Day / the day after Christmas in your area or family? Please comment and let me know. When I was in Japan one year, I noticed that they sell big mystery packages on boxing day at many stores. I guess these packages are full of goodies that are marked down for clearance. I thought that was a fun idea.

What do you think?

      Oh we Americans love Amazon! There is even a phenomenon (which my area is a part of) called “Amazon gentrification.” Lots of tech types move into an urban area, but very little retail opens up because we all buy off Amazon. I’m not a big fan of this trend, but even I end up buying a lot off Amazon because of it. It’s better than a 20 minute drive each way to a store in the suburbs 🙂

    Your Shopping Stereotype is Unique

    It’s hard to stereotype you, because you simply buy what you like. You are a true individual.
    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.

    This is soo me!!

    Your Shopping Stereotype is Balanced (except when buying teas, yes! :))

    Unlike most people, you don’t really obsess over shopping. It’s a chore, just like any other.
    You crave a simple, stress free experience when you go shopping. Convenience is very important to you.

    You tend to know what you want, and you’re willing to pay to get it quickly. You probably enjoy shopping online.
    You enjoy taking time to pick out what you want, but once you’re ready to buy, you don’t want to drag out the process.

        Sounds wonderful to me… do they sell any safron teas online where you live? I’d love to buy a loose leaf tea with safron only… hard to find, they all tend to include apples or chili…

          We can get a black tea with saffron. Is that what you mean? Or do you mean just saffron – no black tea? We can get either here online at Amazon 🙂 I’d like to try it!
