I don't carry a balance on my credit card; I pay it off in full each month. But I still keep on top of the charges and credits, because it provides visibility into what, how much, and where I spend.
That aside, I do the majority of my shopping online. That means a lot of returns, either to the store or shipped back. What does this say about me, that I am a serial returner? I worry I will get put on some naughty list as a returner and be denied the ability to return at a store. I know The Limited keeps such a database. I wonder if J.Crew and Anthro do?
Sometimes I dread going into Anthro or J.Crew because I am there to do yet another return. I wonder what the SAs think of me. I also wonder what Mr. UPS thinks about the frequent deliveries he makes. My husband likes to say that I am stimulating the economy.
I would not be such a serial returner if the stores I like carried more sizes, styles, and options like the stores in larger cities. Also, for some places I have to order online as there is not a local store. But still, it gets tiring to always be doing the return dance. But I really don't see any other option: I tend to be indecisive, I like to think my purchases over and try them on a few times before I fully commit, and I am always second-guessing myself. Note: I keep the tags on, and do not wear the item out of the house, so what I return is in new condition. I just like to try items on at home and really think about them. I guess I am commitment-phobic!
Sigh. If I am a serial returner, what kind of shopper are you?
