If the economy depended on me, it really would be in trouble. Over the past 15 years I have developed a distaste for shopping. Malls and I share little in common. Even hardware stores and big box outlets provide minimal temptation. It isn’t so much that I am boring and find little interest. I once had a desire at least to check out stores.

For the most part, I think its because, there is so little I find I want or need. Commercials do not create an insatiable urge for things. Even those products that are two for one at $19.95, plus shipping and handling, don’t grab me. Lust for stuff is just no longer there.

Even garage or estate sales carry no temptation.
