Should you have shopped till you dropped?

I actually have no idea what it really means. But my guess is the word "till" might mean "because"

Considering you are not rich, was it wise to buy so many things with your small salary?

    You post lots of questions but do not seem to accept any answers as correct. I will feel more motivated to help you if I knew that our answers were really helping you.

Shop till you drop is an idiom. The literal meaning is that you shopped to the point of physical exhaustion. Colloquially it just means you did a lot of shopping and are tired because of it.

Till is just a contraction of until. That might help you to make sense of it.
