The feeling of having convenient resources gives one pleasure to afford a certain lifestyle and gratitude for meeting expenses.
We are of a generation where a certain lifestyle has to be appreciated and looked at in different forms. Today we speak different terms in terms of what we do, where we go, and what we need and want. In other words, we speak BUDGET. To some the term is still foreign while to some, it’s a matter of compromise, but in simple language, the word means freedom.
Whoever said money can’t buy yo happiness, didn't know where to shop! I say this in the most innocent manner. Whenever I look around the daily activities of people going in and out of shops, I realize that shopping is the most outgoing of activities since money was invented and shops were implemented for the social life.
“We need to write down a list of items we need in the house. I need this trouser, and the bright yellow top, and some heels for the occasion. Ooh, not to forget the next season’s catalogue.” Or rather, “all my expenses have been paid, and now I need to relax with the rest I'm left with.” We are more likely to hear such phrases in our surroundings and we are more likely to be the ones speaking them in our minds.
Shopping is the activity of searching, selecting and ultimately purchasing products and services that fulfil the needs, wants and desires of customers. Through shopping we find congeniality, we expose our different perceptions, we require assistance and we meet deadlines. It’s a fun way to keep ourselves busy, an excuse to go and socialize with friends for try outs, a getaway for the family to get out of the house.
“Shopping, Money”, what words you are and what adventure you give. However, this may be an addiction to some, who can’t live without money and are compressed to be seen in the latest of all items.
Having money produces an affordable lifestyle, and having money equals to amounts of leadership in one’s life. So whoever said money can’t buy you happiness, needs to control their way of consuming this powerful object.
