I got this from Consumerist, an awesome blog whose RSS I subscribe to. http://consumerist.com/
Apparently shopping only leads to more shopping, not happiness as I’ve always thought. Except in the case of certain shoes. Or a really good sample sale. Or a brand-new, kick-ass bike. Or shopping for a home, that can be nice, in a big-picture kinda way. But I see their point, anyway, even though it’s just from Stanford GSB.
I dunno shopping for shoes, lingerie or a good lipstick makes me feel a TON better.
I find shopping for food when I’m hungry very fulfilling.
