When the going gets tough..

..the tough go shopping!

Haha..  No, but seriously, has anyone heard of the term "retail therapy"?  Apparently, it's a thing.  I'm not sure how I feel about it -- the idea that going shopping is going to help you feel better.  I mean, isn't the whole point of being happy with yourself supposed to have to do with.. well, yourself.  And not, any external thing, and certainly not something you buy!

But, I am happy to be enlightened..  So, I looked a little deeper.  It's not so much about buying some "thing" and suddenly, you're a happy camper.  It's more the psychological rewards associated with shopping.  Okay...  Let's keep digging, then.

I mean, here I am, I work for a company that basically sells pretty bags...  So, if I can find some positives behind getting you to buy a pretty bag this season, I suppose I should do my utmost to uncover them.   For your sake, and mine..

So, let's see..  According to an article "Why Retail Therapy Works", by Kit Yarrow, professor of psychology and marketing, some of the therapeutic benefits of shopping include:

1. Helping to ease transitions

For example, when parents go shopping and buy their soon-to-be college freshman some new bedding or toiletry kits.

I think college freshmen (and sophomores, juniors, seniors..  pretty much everyone) needs a new bag!

2. Relaxation and escape

Even just taking a break and scrolling online for new light fixtures can be seen as a mini-vacation for some!

Why stop at light fixtures..  Check out the selection here at Nesaa, and find the bag that is perfect for you, or the perfect gift for someone you love!

3. The social connection

Since man first made cities, there was always the marketplace at it's core.  And today, it's no different as people can connect over their shared need to shop!

So, there you have it..  No, you cannot buy happiness with a bag, no matter how pretty it is.  But you sure can find some happiness when you shop at Nesaa for the perfect bag for you.

Happy shopping, campers!

Love and laughs from me,
