love to shop

This mother, like most women, loves to shop. May it be window shopping or the real deal. It is my therapy for stress and boredom. Plus I feel better when I get good deals while shopping because I make sure I get the most value for my money. I used to use cash when shopping though. It is the norm where I came from. There are only a few stores which accept credit cards as form of payment and let us admit, cash is a lot easier to use while shopping.

That mentality was changed when I got here though. The husband taught me to shop without having to use cash all the time. He said I need to pay using credit card so my credit score will improve. I am fairly new to this country and didn't have any credit history of any kind so we have to build it little by little. Now whenever I have to buy something, I use my credit card, even in grocery stores. I now know how to use my cards responsibly. And I am starting to love it.
