However a lot of them also agree that shopping is more than just buying basic necessities in fact, spending money can be an investment, a fulfilling experience and more so a lifestyle.


Whichever the case is, the bottom line is in these trying financial times it is important for every person to plan their shopping well. Personal finance experts say that preparation is a very important aspect before going to the mall. Although one of the major things that shoppers need to do before they hit the road is to prepare a list of items they intend to buy, dressing well and having a nice breakfast is also considered important too. Personal finance experts argue that a hungry person is likely to spend recklessly in shopping compared to a person who has had a nice breakfast.
