This sign had a pretty good point:
“Shopping is cheaper than a psychiatrist.”
Plus it’s more fun and you get to take the junk home that you buy.
For many, shopping truly is a form of mental/stress relief–almost like medicine.
Unfortunately, if you think about it, things don’t really make a person happy…rather people do and doing good does.
But industry wants you to think a lot more superficially and materialistically than that.
Hence the notion that if you take your daily dose of shopping, maybe you can skip the shrink! 😉
