But to be honest, I don't shop that often. And the once in a while I do, I like to go out, stroll through the streets, or the mall, etc. I just don't find it a chore to go to a bookstore. I infact like it, and don't do it as often as I would like to.
But overall we don't shop that much. Clothing a couple times a year, the odd gift here and there, a book, etc. But it is not like we shop for non food items every single day.
How often do we all shop? Well lets see, most families need food at least once every two weeks. And then go out for the odd thing that has perished between set shopping dates. Like my family does.
Also, I dont know about you, but I would die if I couldn't shop for clothes more than 2-3 times a year. Im out, almost every day picking up something new to wear.. getting something to eat from the local store, or picking up a coffee from any tim hortons that is near.
However, i'm 16. Which brings up an odd point, but a very good one. We are not all the same age. And there are many teens who like to go out and spend everything they have. There are many retired people who stroll around stores every day. There are many people who don't have that luxury while they are going to school, like you. There are people who are frugal with their money and only go out every few weeks or so.
And to answer your question about how many of us shop... when you go out to stores and when you go shopping, do you see lots of people out? Do you have to stand in line and wait to spend your money? If you do then you must be able to see how justifiable it is to have so many stores.
