It is not unknown that most times, people don’t go to malls for shopping out of necessity, but do it for recreation and fun when bored or feel down. Malls these days are not just huge in size, they have many more activities and goods than previously, so you can enjoy yourself even if you don’t get what you planned to buy. There are various fun things you could do, like trying out items and taking photos, participating in competitions that will earn you gifts or discounts, and simply walking around admiring things.
Most malls do not restrict customers from trying out their products, meaning that even if you lack the money to buy something, you can try their products out. You may have just finished shopping and run out of money, then you spot something more interesting that whatever you acquired, and curiosity sets in. Because you are allowed to examine things provided you don’t spoil them, you can use this opportunity to try out a dress, shirt or shoes and take as many photos as you can just for fun. Some people fake it till they make it, so you could use this opportunity to brag about what you own, especially when you are a social butterfly.
In peak seasons like Easter or Christmas, and public holidays, malls try to give customers an experience of a lifetime buy allowing them to compete for gifts and discounts. If you have the time, you can participate in things like cooking, to get a cut on utensils, or let your child play games like football, skating, or drawing. These games do not only earn you those free season gifts or a lowered price, they could be the most fun you will have in a while.
When you find yourself at a mall while strolling and you don’t plan on buying or admiring anything, you can decide to play around or help out however you can. If the mall is big enough, you can play hide and seek or compete to see who finds a certain section first provided you do not hinder other customers in the shop. Some people like social work and just helping out, so they can help dust the shelves or clean the floors, or assist the staff to serve customers by packing or carrying their purchased items. These actions could seem childish and time wasting to others, but if you enjoy them, it could be so much fun, and fulfilling.
We mostly have so limited time that we cannot even get time to go out after a whole day’s work, but that does not mean that your life should be fun-free. Enjoying yourself at the mall or shopping place kills two birds with one stone because you will buy what you wanted and also enjoy yourself to the fullest. You can join mall contests to save some cash, let yourself or your kids play around without disturbing other customers, or help others out, which is tiring but very fulfilling.
