Just like personalities, drivers, and sleepers, there are definitive types of shoppers that exist in this world.
Question being, what type are you?
Using a completely-unscientific-but-perfectly-reliable formula, we’ve compiled the six most relatable types so you can find the answer…
1. The ‘pops out for one thing but ends up bringing half of Greenwich Shopping Park back with them’ one

3. The thrifty one
50% off sale: exists.
Me: goes shopping.

4. The ‘tries it on in-store and then buys it online cheaper’ one
Changing room assistant: “Did they all fit ok?”
Me, knowing that they all fitted perfectly: “Just a little bit too small, unfortunately!”
My conscience, knowing that I’m going to purchase the exact same pieces and sizes just a little bit cheaper online when I get home:
5. The tactical one
Me: “I’m going to buy all of my summer clothes at the very end of season when prices are at rock bottom — and then put them away until next summer.”
My friends and family:
Checks phone: it’s 6am on a Friday and you’ve got work in three hours.
