Ever since I started earning my own money, and living independently, I became a practical shopper. :) Life teaches you valuable lessons when you're on your own. Hehe.

Lalo na ngayong Mommy na ko, doble ang pagiging practical shopper - especially for myself. For baby, minsan I buy stuff na di naman super need (girl kasi anak ko, can't resist super cute stuff sometimes.), pero I make sure na di naman super expensive - so in some way, practical pa din naman.

I do spend unnecessarily for stuff I want every once in a while (mga once a month if I'm lucky. pag hindi, wala talaga, zero. hahaha), Starbucks, shoes, new books (favorite kong gastusan to. saka kape.hehe).  Kailangan din naman yon minsan, to keep me sane. Feel human. :)

I'm not the kind naman to deprive myself for the sake of frugality. Maikli lang ang buhay, I don't want to die bitter of stuff I didn't get to enjoy. Hehe. :D

im impulsive buyer, gastadora tawag sa akin ng parents ko kahit noong nag-aaral pa lang ako sa college.  Bili ako ng bili kahit hindi naman pala kelangan, so tumatambak lang :( pero hindi pa rin ako natuto till now huhuhu.  Mahilig ako magbibili ng bags, shoes, perfume at kung ano ano girl's stuff. hoping na mabawasan na pagiging impulsive ko lalo na my baby na ako :)

Uhm, a little bit of both...if I see that an item I like is affordable and that it would be really useful, then I go buy it right there and then. But for bigger and far more expensive items (furniture, appliances, gadgets) I like to think things over, and consider our budget before splurging our hard-earned money.  :)

ako i was an impulsive buyer nong college days ko pagkatanggap ko ng allowance drecho na sa mall , shopping galore talaga , now na me 2 children na ako - naging practical na talaga ako sa lahat ng bagay pinag-iisipan ko talagang mabuti kung dapat bang bihin or hindi lalo na't d naman sya badly needed.

80% Practical Shopper ...ganito na talaga ako eversince,if hindi needed badly sa  bahay or gamet ko hindi  ko binibili...most of the naman nagresearch  ako sa  mga reviews ng mga tao or  nagtatanong ako ng  mga pov's about sa isang bagay bago ko binibili  if maganda and need talaga binibili ko diretso , pag medyo mahal think so many times talaga and then hope it  works perfect. hahaha

20% Impulsive Buyer ako sa mga pastries, cakes, chocolates    especially mood swing days ko. pagmaganda at masarap tingnan kahit medyo mahal bibili diretso walang tanong tanong. bahala na si  batman pag hindi masarap sa huli. hehe

Ako, classified into amounts yung pagiging shopper ko.

Mostly, if it's just less than P200 --- mabilis maubos ang pera ko. Especially if its just pastries, coffee, and just about any pasalubong for baby; kapag food/snack, i tend to buy.

For appliances/gadgets ---- I'm a practical shopper. If we don't need it, we don't buy it. If I have to upgrade, I really research and compare, but not always necessarily buy within the next few months. Whatever savings that I have, I put in the bank. Either I build a bigger fund for it, or I don't buy it muna, waiting for a better buy, or a sale.

For clothes/bags/make-up --- Minsan lang, but when I do, madami naman. Sometimes, kaka-delay ko for myself, naiipon and I tend to buy a batch.

Now that I think about it, it's just like Ahyzeyuh...for mommy, practical shopper (except for coffee); for baby --- mostly, impulsive.

Im an impulsive buyer lalo na if may pang-gastos naman but I do know how to stop my self from buying something not on the budget or hindi carry ng financial chuva ko, babalikan na lang kapag may pera na. Hehe!I usually splurge on food kahit na di naman ako tumataba. I love eating!

im half practical shopper and half impulsive hehe...

depende kasi sisses.. if its only worth 300p below siguro go agad! like if its a blouse or a pair of shoes/sandals.. pero most of the time not for me ang mga binibili ko.. its always for my baby,,, hehe minsan naman pag may budget i don't care how much the item is, basta para sa anak ko.. GO!!!  ;D

minsan naman, kuripot ako.. i don't know with me.. napansin ko lang sa sarili ko, pag nasa mall ako, pag tumitingin ako ng mga stuff for me, tingin ko panget silang lahat. parang wala ako sa mood, naiinis na nga ako,,, one time gusto ko bumili ng shoes, wala talaga ako magustuhan. tumingin na ako sa sale, sa branded lahat na pero feeling ko panget silang lahat.. i have the budget naman... i don't know.. minsan naiisip ko, kaya siguro ganun ako kasi nasanay ako na binibigyan ako??? my family kasi is in US, so karamihan sa mga gamit ko is padala nila.. i don't know,, sakit ba un sisses? pag kasi ako bibili for myself, wala ako magustuhan talaga.. or nangunguripot lang ba ako?? hehe nagiging impulsive ako if im with my best friend, kumbaga sya ang kunsintidor ko na bumili hehe
  :P


pero ang sobrang impulsive ako sa pagbili ng food at mga beauty products ehehhe... if its mositurizer GO!!! hehe... adik ako sa moisturizer eh... lalo na nung natagpuan ko ang ETUDE HOUSE... grabe, unang pasok ko dun.. naubos pera ko hehe ... IT PAYS TO BE BEAUTIFUL ika nga hehe  :P :P :P

Pag may budget, ayun todo shopping ako. Pero minsan super tipid naman ako.
Most of the times impulsive buyer ako..pero sabi naman ng mama at hubby ko
practical shopper daw ako kasi I usually buy some good stuff.
Siguro nagiging impulsive lang ako pag Christmas hehe
