7 Reasons to Shop by Yourself ...


You may enjoy shopping with your friends, but there are good reasons to shop by yourself.

I always have fun when I go shopping with my friends, but I don’t always get everything I want or need.

Because of this, I started shopping alone, and I discovered there are good reasons to shop by yourself.

1. Go Where You Want

When you go shopping with a group of people there isn’t always enough time to go to all of the stores you want to.2

When you are by yourself however, there is plenty of time for you to browse through all of your favorite stores.

Being able to go where you want is one of the best reasons to shop by yourself, but it is not the only reason to go solo every so often.2

2. Go at Own Pace

Another reason you may want to shop by yourself on occasion is that you get to go at your own pace.

You can take time looking through a store and trying on clothes.

Also, if you aren’t finding anything at a particular store, you can leave whenever you want.2

When you shop with your friends, you don’t always get to shop at the pace you would desire, but when you are by yourself you can go as fast or as slow as you want.

3. Save Money

There is something about shopping with your friends that can result in spending more money than you intended to.2

I know I have spent more money than I wanted to when shopping with my friends.

I see things they are getting that I want, or I get persuaded into buying something I wouldn’t have otherwise purchased.

When I shop by myself, it is much easier to stay on budget.

4. Rely on Your Opinion

Shopping by yourself forces you to rely on your own opinion about the clothes you are trying on.

You have to decide if they do or don’t look good.

While it is nice to have a second opinion at times, it is also good to rely on your own opinion.

It helps you develop an eye for what you like.
