I'm a Terrible Boss  
I hang out after work now and then with one of my assistants, and a few months back, asked her to come with me and Nin shopping, but she didn't show; later, she said she wished she'd come. Tonight, Nin and I were going to Coldwater Creek since they're having the 50% off everything sale (including stuff already marked down), so I could supplement my summer work wardrobe, and I had a gift card to use. I'm all about maximizing the sale! So I told T we were going, and she wanted to come this time. Now, I love shopping for other people maybe more than I like shopping for me! I was stoked. We got to the store, and I started pulling tops off the racks for her to try, and offering my opinion on colour choices/shapes. Usually T wears men's t-shirts, so I was getting her to try things she wouldn't normally. In the end, she got three new tops, one of them being one of my choices, and wants to go back this weekend after we get paid tomorrow for a few more things. She had fun, I had fun, and she can't wait to wear her new clothes to work. Cheered me up immensely!

My sincerest CONGRATS to you because shopping is an ordeal for me.....
It always has been and always will be
When I was in the military my roommate use to go with me to pick out evening wear for official functions where we did not have to wear uniforms. It was always an ordeal. I managed but....
I go into a store with a list. I fill that list and that is it.

Shopping with friends is always easier.

Ah, another woman with a black belt in shopping. The goal is get as much while spending the least amount of money.

My wife loves to drag people to stores and outfit other people (using their money to her high value/low price standards).

As a result both of my daughters are battle hardened shoppers who know a good sale when they see one. (And we live among the Dutch!)

(I wonder if our Coldwater Creek is also having the sale?)

It's chain wide, plus on the website. On for another 7-8 days.

I usually order on the website, but none of what I liked was in my size. So decided to try the store.

You need to be a personal assistant :) Cooking, shopping, organizing ...
