as a consumer, what are your shopping habits? How do you decide what to buy?

It is depends on which I want to buy. If I need to buy supplies. I usually buy it on JD
, and choose the one which has discount that day,however I buy supplies overmuch. If I need to buy dress I buy it on Taobao, which shop I usually use. Due to my short and thin figure, hard to find clothes suit for me. Clothing for summer I don’t like buying expensive one, because it needs to wash everyday in summer,but for coat , or shoes I would rather buy expensive and which is not obsolete easily. I only decide to buy things when I need it. I never had an impulsive shopping since I’ve been making money by myself.
