    I braved black Friday and came home with batteries for my mouse. It wasn't a big deal. I didn't plan in out in advance nor did I get a big rush while I was making purchases. Why go women go ape shit at the store?
    ( yes--I know ALL women don't do this but why are there women who live to shop ? )

    I have a shopping battery that lasts about 20 minutes. If I can't get my shopping done before my battery runs out, I go home

    The great thing about Walmart's midnight store openings on Thanksgiving Friday: They've added bulls to the run.

    Beauty takes work dillo...


    'Women will dedicate 90 trips a year to keeping up their appearances - shopping for clothes 30 times, shoes 15 times, accessories 18 times and toiletries 27 times.

    A total of 100 hours and 48 minutes is spent hunting for the latest clothing bargains and fashion statements.

    A further 40 hours and 30 minutes is spent shopping for footwear, and 29 hours and 31 minutes looking for accessories such as handbags, jewellery and scarves.

    Even shopping for more mundane items such as deodorant, shower gel and razors takes women around 17 hours and 33 minutes over one year.'

    And that doesn't even include window shopping. :)

    I think I am that rare breed (or bread if Swagger prefers) of female.... one that really doesn't like shopping. I tolerate it only when I have to. I do drive my female friends crazy... cuz they want to spend a day shopping and I'm like "Noooooooo". But, my guy friends... they love it cuz I am usually up for doing 'guy stuff'.

    Ditto, I so hate shopping. But my guy friends is another story :doubt:

    I am very much into taking what I already have and using it to keep from having to shop. But atlas, I sometimes run out of things

    People are hunter gatherers.

    In the ancient family guess who did most of the hunting and who did most of the gathering.
