I don't like shopping very much. I think that the last thing I bought was a book, but I'm not sure.

Hah, good question. I like shopping, recently, maybe 1 hour ago, I bought some clothes from aliexpress. I'm a bit worry, that it will be bad, but I spent all evening to find beautiful clothes for the best price. I bought 2 jeans, 2 t-shirts, longsleeve and polo t-shirt for ~3500 rub. I took almost all xl sizes because Asian clothes usually smaller.

I really like shopping, I often look up the information of the shops I'm about to buy. I like shopping but I don't have much money. About 3-4 months I will buy a shirt or jeans. At Tet, I will buy more.
