Get in loser, we’re going shopping.

Everyone needs a little retail therapy now and then.

When you get stressed out or are feeling a little sluggish in your body, hit the mall and find yourself an outfit or accessory that makes you feel confident. If you have a bad day at work, drive over to Target and browse the dollar asile for a bit.

Shopping – in moderation – can be really helpful when trying to put a bad day to rest. Sometimes, walking around the mall while scarfing down a soft pretzel is exactly what you need. Bringing along friends can also be a great form of retail therapy, as you can all complain about your crappy days together.


So, when the going gets tough, the tough really should go shopping. In fact, Psychology Today posted a research finding by TNS Global on behalf of Ebates, which found that more than half of Americans admit to retail therapy and usually shop to cheer themselves up or celebrate a success.

If this information alone doesn’t motivate you to go grab your purse and hit the nearest mall, here are some of the best shopping quotes that will remind you retail therapy is more than just an excuse to shop.

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
