1. The habitual shopping addicts

These are the people who simply can’t help shopping. ‘I’m bored. Nothing to do. Let’s go shopping’ is their go-to mantra. Always packed-ready with a stout pocket, shopping’s never a big deal for them.

a) Find another hobby, please! You’ll save a lot!
b) Don’t just shop, invest (think: buying gold and promising returns)

2. The impulsive ‘I-want-what-she’s-buying’ shoppers

Loved by the shop owners more than any other type, this is the type that assures the shops the best income. The easiest targets – easy to distract, tempt, and cash!

a) Go shopping with limited cash
b) Never go alone; accompany a ‘but-i-have-an-opinion-about-everything’ pal

3. The bargain beauties

No matter what the rates are, they are just not programmed to accept a deal without a fair bargain. But if they get the easy deals…ouch!

a) Treat saving like a good bargain
b) Start a small garage outlet of your own

4. The commitment crazies

If and when they develop a relationship with a store, you can bet anything it’s going to be a forever after. This can end up in monotony and keep you from a whole variety out there!

a) Cheat a little! There’s no harm exploring new stores- try polygamy in this case!
b) Don’t buy any and everything ‘your’ store recommends!

5. Struck down with the discount disease

These are the warriors who know how to break every line and conspiracy when it’s the battle of the season sale. Loaded up with all the coupons there are, they’re the overlords of shopping!

a) Cheap rates don’t increase your need for the products, restrain!
b) Don’t forget to check the quality (there’s always a reason behind discounts)!

6. The know-it-all shoppers


Image source: Tumblr

These are the ones who think they know all about what they need and the products they are buying (which, when just an illusion, leads them unto the losing end of the deal).

a) Take the info from the experts and tally with yours QUIETLY (Meaning – don’t piss off the dealers!)
b) Always stay open for suggestions
c) Go shopping with someone who knows nothing about anything (Jon Snow maybe, ha!)

7. The easy preys

These are the shoppers who, at the sight of a pretty poster or an endorsement by their favorite stars, feel like they NEED to buy it right now!

a) Now now, you DON’T need it
b) It’s just an ad the star was paid for and you’ll lose wads of green for
c) It’s the watch that’s on offer NOT Brad Pitt (or his super-human good looks!)

8. The exciting resellers!

The hawk-y shoppers who have an eye for all the products that can give them a high resell. They don’t buy what they need, but what people might want to buy and fire away online!

a) Know that online selling portals are not a magic window
b) Buy only what will sell (and not pile on useless for you too!)

9. The window shoppers


Image source: Tumblr

They really neither need nor buy any product. Shopping is a virtual sport and source of amusement for them. But what they do spend on is a lot of uncalculated and unaccounted food, while window shopping…

a) Go out after having a filling meal
b) (or better) window shop online! 😛

10. The thoughtful need-based shoppers

These are the people who will spend nights researching and collecting first hand reviews on everything they are going to buy.

a) Believe the info from registered and trusted sources only
b) What didn’t work out for your friend may work for you- try yourself!
c) Don’t over think – it’s just shopping. Cheers!

Happy shopping!

I am a misfit software engineer who left her work in the corporate world to pursue the insatiable quest to write. A freelance worker by the day, I choose to dream with eyes open wide. I have conversations with myself where I talk of the possibilities that life can hold. Too many wishes made on empty starless nights ensure that there are various dreams yet to be lived. I am working my way as I am on a quest to find myself. The greatest journeys are indeed the ones that lie within. I am yet to live my story because right now, the book is full of too many apostrophes and too many commas. The words are jumbled until the right one fits the puzzle. I don't believe in perfection because too many times, it is imperfection which paints the perfect story. I am verbose and I aim at living life in full swing until a speed breaker curbs the tantalizing pace with which I wish to conquer the dreams that would otherwise be too big for the not-so-tiny shoes I wear. Blessed with a lot of chubby fat, I love going the extra mile to conquer my extra dreams with an extra advice after all, we all love a little extra. A die-hard shopaholic, you can often find me laughing on serious stuff inappropriately at wrong times (unintentionally).
