Hey girl hey. And boy.
As you may know, today was boxing day and although I’ve made this second list back when I made my first one last summer, today helped me reinforce all the struggles once again. Shopping can bring you great finds (I bought a pair of running shoes for $17 today) but can sometimes be very frustrating. 😂 Here are 7 more shopping struggles almost every shopper can relate to. Let’s get starteddd.
1. Signing Up For Reward Points and Discounts
You know those cashiers at every store that tell you about a free sign-up or coupon code. Well at first, it may sound great but when you’re in a line and your phone is taking forever to load the link they send, then it gets annoying. 😂 And you can’t just say never mind because then it would’ve been a waste of their time. So you’re basically just stuck there trying to fill out a bunch of information for 10 percent off. 😂 Did this happen to anyone else? No? Okay.
2. Rips & Cut-Outs
Don’t. even. get. me. started. 😂 I literally cannot with ripped jeans and ripped sweaters anymore. Please give me good quality clothing and I’ll cut it myself. I don’t care about the trends – leave me and my posh life alone. 😂 Seriously, if this was a thing a couple years ago, everyone would be like – “how’d that get ripped?” It used to look unfortunate going out with ripped clothes but now it’s a trend? Noo thank you – as IF I’m going to buy this ripped sweater for $60.
3. When The Clothes You Wanted Don’t Have Your Size
I haven’t experienced this today but it happened when picking out clothes for my sister. Seriously though, why can’t clothes just replenish themselves? Sizes must be there at all tiiimes. 😂 This sucks especially when there’s a sale rack and your size only appears in the ugliest pants.
4. Fake Pockets In Jeans
Ugh I don’t get this at. all. To be a pocket or NOT to be a pocket.😂 There’s no in between.
5. See-Through Clothes
I know some people actually like this but as a hijabi, I’d really prefer if no one can see my bra and underwear through my clothes. That’s the point of me wearing clothes to begin with! 😂 Plus, if it’s see-through, then it’s usually not good quality so thank you, next.
6. Super Long Lines
THIS WAS THE CASE TODAY! If I walk in to a store, and there’s a long line, you best believe that I’m walking right back to where I came from. I cannot handle long lines because I’m claustrophobic and ugh why is everyone in here?!😂
7. Changing Room Paranoia
I feel like I can name ten struggles within this one but seriously! Why can Burj Khalifa fit between the door and the floor? 😂 I’m sure everyone can see me changing like please! And don’t even get me started on the curtained changing rooms. I feel like someone will just open the curtain out of nowhere like ugh I’m so paranoid! Sometimes changing rooms don’t have locks at all and in H&M and Bluenotes, boys and girls changing rooms are mixed like come again? Just no. 😂
Anddd that’s all for today’s post.
Do you relate to these struggles?
Any more to add to the list?
Did you go Boxing Day shopping?
I’ll see you guys in my next post.
