One of the amazing things was that 5 of us came home with only 55kg of luggage between us! The limit for us was 150kg!! (we went over with 29kg). Sign of a good shopper I reckon. I also had not done any clothes shopping for nearly a year (bar 2 merino jerseys and tights for me) and the boys only had one shopping trip in 2015 too. We booked and fully paid for the flights/accommodation nearly a year ago too.
I'm at practical shopper mostly. Many people would probably laugh at my shopping in Hong Kong. But is is good practical useful items that I was after (and shopping at shops we do not have in New Zealand like Uniqlo, Muji (Oh how i adore these two places), H & M and Gap (tiny bit - not overly impressed with these) and Marks and Spencers (cheap stuff and not so cheap stuff!).
The local in real neighbourhood stationery shops were incredible - so, so cheap. They were packed to the rafters with things I had not seen for many, many years! I loved how the shelves had prices on them, but the items didn't but the staff knew every single item price in their head and it was still all added up by calulator. Cash is still used a lot in Hong Kong! I really like plain notepads and manila/kraft paper items. Pens, to me, were amazingly cheap, so I stocked up in lots of cool colours (these were less than half the NZ price we pay!). Muji I loved for manila stationery. I also went into my first ever Hallmark shop (we have cards and wrapping paper and invites here - notecard sets are very rarely found).
Due to it being winter, with lots of sales on, I especially stocked up on less than half price tights and socks and underwear. My favourite lip balm was half the price to here too, and handcream etc was a steal! And a few rolls of washi tape too.
All little things. But little things I love!
