In my opinion many people buy different things from boredom and too much money in your wallet. They buy more and more things that others drew attention to them. Fewer and fewer are those people who go to the store just something you currently need.

According to me, people do a lot of shopping because there are different discounts and bargains in every place where you can buy something. It cause that people buy some things and usually these are things which they do not need, but they bought it because it was at a good price. Moreover one of crowd-puller is an offer/promotion when you can buy 3 things and pay just for 2 or something similar, then people look for this third one to get discount.
People too often do shopping impulsively...

In my opinion people go shopping becouse now there are a lot of beautiful things. On tv there are colorful advertisement which say: you have to have it! From time to time there are sales where you can buy cheaper things which you don't need but you buy it becouse they can be useful in the future.

In my point of view people do so much shopping in these days because they want to have everything that they enjoyed. What is more when we go to the shop we sometimes fall for the promotions which in the fact are not very different from the initial price. And last but not least nowadays in every city there are a lot of billboards which encourage young people to buy things which they do not need.

People in modern day forgot what it means to fix something. We dont fix nothing, when something is broken we just throw it and we buy new one. On the other hand we always want to have better and better things in house also when we already have similar one. It is pressure of society to have the best stuff not only good for you.

In my country people wants to buy something that they don't need.Just because of other's idea!really It is like envy!
Sometimes I see some people who can't afford buy somethings, but they do ! Just for preventing of bad visions. Because if they don't have as same as others, It means that they can't.Just a lack of self confidence!

Moreover, shopping resources are increasing day by day for e.g online shopping now has become the trade .People are more likely to move on online shopping .Stuff are also getting very affordable. Every one, be it poor or rich one can afford the things because everything is available according to your need for e.g if a poor guy can not afford a big pack of dove shampoo he can go for small pouch which is rather cheap and affordable

It's great to see that people are striving to enhance their quality of life, and shopping can indeed be a part of that journey. The expanding array of shopping options, particularly with the rise of online platforms, has revolutionized the way we acquire goods and services. The accessibility and affordability offered by online shopping have made it a preferred choice for many.
One of the notable advantages is the wide range of products available to cater to various budgets and needs. Whether someone is on a tight budget or has more disposable income, there are options suitable for everyone. For instance, the availability of smaller, more affordable sizes allows individuals to purchase items like shampoo without breaking the bank.
This democratization of shopping ensures that necessities and luxuries alike are within reach for people from all walks of life. It's encouraging to see how these advancements are making essential items more accessible to everyone, regardless of their financial situation.

There are many factors. There is a status to upkeep, which drives people to buy the latest things.

Social media also has a huge influence, as you are constantly being targeted by products, even when you don't notice it.
