BAKIT ANG PINOY ANG HILIG MAG SHOPPING?

SALE! SALE! SALE!
50% OFF!
BUY ONE! TAKE ONE

These are the common signs na nakakadistract kapag pumupunta tayo sa mall.

Marami sa mga Pinoy na aminado na sila ay shopaholics. Ang kanila pa ngang favorite quote ay: “Shop ’till you drop!”

BAKIT NGA BA MAHILIG SA SHOPPING ANG PINOY?

BONDING
Mapa-family bonding or activity ng barkada, ito na ang madalas na napupusuan na gawin.

Tila ito na ang naging COMMON INTEREST ng karamihan sating mga Pilipino.

Ang iba naman, kahit walang kasama ay go pa din dahil ito ay kanilang …

HOBBY
Shopping na ang naging pampalipas oras. Ang FREE TIME ay nakalaan sa mall para bumili ng kung ano ano.

Kung ang iba ay sports or pagbabasa ang nagpapasaya sa kanila, ang ilang mga kaibigan natin ay sa pammimili sila nakakahanap ng kaligayahan.

Meron din naman na ginagawa ang shopping para …

MAKALIMOT
Sa sobrang depressed sa pangyayari sa buhay, ginawang ESCAPE ang pagsho-shopping.

Para sa kanila, RETAIL THERAPY ang makakatulong sa napakabigat nilang mga problema.

Pero ang totoo, kapag nasobrahan na sa pagsho-shopping, ito ay masama. Sabi nga, lahat ng sobra ay masama.

At kapag shopaholic ka na, malamang magkakaroon na ng negative effect sa iyong …

SOCIAL LIFE
Malamang ikaw ay napagsasabihan na ng mahal mo sa buhay na bawasan mo na ang pagsho-shopping. At dahil mahal mo din sila, ikaw ay MANGANGAKO na sundin ang kanilang payo. Pero kapag na-tempt ka mag-shopping, mapapako mo lang ang iyong ipinangako.

EMOTIONAL STATE
At dahil alam mong wala kang isang salita, ikaw ay mag-susuffer because of GUILT. Makokonsensya ka na ikaw ay hindi marunong tumupad sa usapan at nag-overspend na naman.

FINANCIAL STATUS
Because of OVERSPENDING, malamang hindi mo na na-mamanage mg maayos ang iyong finances. Hindi na based sa plano ang paggastos mo at puro based na lang sa emosyon.

Wala naman masama kung ikaw ay mag-shopping as long as controlled spending at the same time wala kang utang.

Pero kung ito ay nakakasama, you got to…

ADMIT THAT YOU HAVE A PROBLEM
Madalas kapag hindi okay ang sitwasyon mo, iisipin mo na ang mga taong nasa paligid mo ang may problema.

Pero kapag hindi pa din umaayos, kailangan mo ng mag-pause at mag-isip isip ng mabuti dahil malamang ikaw naman talaga ang may problema.

Tandaan, “If you’re not part of the solution, then you are part of the problem.”

GET RID OF CREDIT CARD
Wala rin naman masama kung ikaw ay may card, as long as you are a responsible card holder.

Even credit card companies are not in favor of people who uses their card irresponsibly.

Baka naman kaskas ka ng kaskas kahit wala kang nakahandang pambayad. Malaki talagang problema yan pag ganyan.

Kaya kung hindi mo na mapigilan ang sarili mo sa pag-swipe, mas mabuti pang SIRAIN mo na ang card mo. Gupitin mo at itapon sa iba’t ibang lugar ang parte ng card.

Kapag nagawa mo yan, yung existing na lang na utang ang problema mo at hindi mo na madadagdagan.

SEEK FINANCIAL COUNSELING
Kadalasan ang mga taong may problema, hindi nila kayang tulungan ang kanilang mga sarili. They need HELP from other people.

And if you are having problems in managing your finances by shopping too much, seek for the help of the FINANCE EXPERTS para matutunan mo ang tamang paghawak ng pera.

Sabi nga, “No man is an island.” Huwag mong sarilinin ang problema mo, madami naman kasi ang handang tumulong sayo.

THINK. REFLECT. APPLY.

Ikaw ba ay shopaholic?
Ano ano ang mga problemang nadudulot nito sa buhay mo?
Anong mga paraan ang naiisip mo para ma-solusyonan ito?
