Shopping can be a hobby or a full-day experience. It can make you happy as who does not like new and shiny things. Both men and women enjoy it completely. It is a treat for the hard work you put in the office.
Some shopping needs more effort and a lot of people are involved. For example, shopping for a wedding can cost you a lot and endless hours and days are spent visiting stores and tailors and other merchants. After such tedious shopping, we think we cannot do more as shopping starts becoming a burden. Well, there are ways in which you can make it exciting.
If you are a shopaholic, then you can totally relate to this list. If you hate shopping, please take a few tops here to make your shopping more exciting. Let us discuss on ways you can take control of your own shopping mood and how can you make it more exciting.
How to make your shopping more exciting and fun?
1. Go with your crazy shopping buddies
Tip: Do not bring friends who only shop for themselves as your priority of shopping focus would change.
2. Go on weekdays

Drink a lot of water, and eat good food! It will give you the energy needed to shop for hours! The outside sun,

5. Go when you have enough money
Do not go shopping if your salary has not been credited. It will make you feel miserable as you drool over the sales! However, if you are a serial hoarder then go with your debit card,
for shopping with a motive

7. Know the deals
Drink Coffee! My must-have addition. It instantly gives you energy especially if you are looking for a quicker shopping experience.
10. Wear comfortable shoes
We do not realize how much shoes matter until we make the mistake of wearing the wrong shoes and having the worst shopping experience. It may not make your shopping exciting but sure as hell comfortable shoes will make your shopping very easy. I always suggest wearing running or walking shoes. As Marilyn Monroe rightly said, “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” To conquer the shopping world, you actually need the most comfortable shoes. And thank me later for your blister-free feet.
11. Always have a
meetup or some event planned later
Be it a movie or a ladies’ night. Always have something planned in advance, this way you will be quick to finish your shopping as there is a deadline involved where you have to meet other people.
12. Write reviews
Start or collaborate with you-tubers or write blogs or guest posts on the products you buy or the experiences you have while shopping. This will give you a motive to shop and who knows you might just earn some money to spend.
13. Carry your own bags from home
Always keep jute or cloth bags in handy. Stop using plastic. You will ask me how will it make shopping more exciting? Well if you are a person who cares about the environment these small things will make you happy. You can also educate shop keepers to stop using plastic and give your own ideas if they are ready to change.
14. Talk and walk
If you are moving from shop to shop it is better you keep your phone charged and talk on the way. This will give you time to reconnect with friends too and you won’t be bored.

Wait!!! I didn’t know that you HAVE to make the shopping more fun. LOL
For me fun means something else, shopping is a must in case I really need something.

A great tip #11 to wear comfortable shoes. I 100% agree with you. I can’t shop if I don’t wear comfortable shoes and I do get surprised seeing people wearing heels the whole day while shopping.

What a wonderful list of tips! The hydration and wearing comfortable shoes is pretty important, Thanks for all of the tips.
I very rarely go shopping for others than food because I can’t stand crowds and people just looking around instead of buying, lol. When I go shopping I always have a plan in mind of what I need and finish quickly. For everything else, there’s Amazon 🙂

Wearing a fitbit is a good idea lol. We walk so much in a mall and we don’t realize it’s a full blown workout.
Great tips for shoppers.Thanks for sharing

With the holidays approaching, this post comes at the right time. Thanks for sharing all these great tips.
some good tips to make your shopping fun and exciting
Oh yes! I definitely loved some of these ideas – carrying an ipod to beat the boring queues, carrying your own bags (I do that already), and planning a date either with or after the shopping spree. Movies always make the day-out shopping experience more wholesome haha! Also, DEFINITELY GO ON WEEKDAYS! And definitely stay hydrated – all that running around and using changing rooms can really dehydrate and tire you easily!
Great list! #4 is a good reminder, I always forget to wear my fitbit while out shopping! Also love #13… I bring my own shopping bags to sometimes, wish I remembered them more often.
#13 of carrying your own bags is one I need to work on;)

Thank you for your post, I find it useful because I personally hate shopping 😀
Every time I go shopping with a motive, I don’t get the things I need. 😀 I think that’s a curse 😀
I don’t agree with a lot of this, but a lot of other points are good. Some non-plastic bags are 10x worse for the environment both in production and disposal, so that’s something to consider. But shopping with friends, eating and hyrdating + coffee…? Yeah I can get behind those.

Shopping on weekdays is the way to go! thank you for sharing!
I’ve never enjoyed shopping that much (I know it’s a little weird), but these are great tips.
I love the idea of shopping on weekdays to avoid crowds. I’m not a fan of crowds!
