In the US, the phenomenon you described - shopping to make you feel better - is known as "retail therapy." Since it has such a name, it must be a rather common practice.

Hi Ciku. Well, I not normally buy things to make me feel better. In fact, I feel a bit more depressed for spending my money! lol [I guess I'm stingy!!! haha]. In my case, my therapy is listening to music. I'm not a fan of heavy metal, but listening to that kind of music always makes me feel better... weird, uh?

Oh my God Ciku!! What are you talking about? Therapy for what? What is your illness/sickness/disease? Relying on commercial stuff and material things to bring yourself energy and happiness is... the first sign of madness. Welcome to the dark side of the... matter. P.S: I didn't know that cats like to go shopping and wear shoes!!! Take care of yourself ;)

Hi ciku, I think that many people love go shopping, it is relaxing and sometimes useful but.....it depends on your wallet!! Usually our eyes "decide" for the most expensive object and if we don't have enough money we have to choose for another ..therapy....
