Lily: Yeah! Well…I read somewhere that compulsive shopping was a disease! Sean: Cholera is a disease. Compulsive shopping is something a 16 year-old does when she wants to look cute for a party andÂ someone gives her a credit card. –Grounded for Life
I’ve admitted that I hate shopping in stores. I have horribly flat feet that get sore from walking around for long periods of time. I hate lines. I hate screaming children who walk right in my foot path almost tripping my already clumsy self. So it should come as no surprise that I prefer to do my shopping online. I feel that lately as the economy has been slow, and when I’ve studied for a solid 5 hours and my brain is mush, my mouse every so slyly makes its way to my favorite online stores. Now, I’m not a person who overspends. I’m fairly frugal actually, and have been squirreling most of my money away for practical things like a house and a new car.
It doesn’t help that I work on a computer all day, and have access to online shopping 40 hours a week. It’s practically an occupational hazard! This month alone I’ve purchased a few books from Amazon books as well as the remaining seasons of Friends on DVD (well I had to finish the collection right?), shoes from the Healthy Feet Store (for those awful flat feet I told you about) and a new night stand. I have my packages delivered to work because I’m there to sign for them, and even the UPS guy made a comment about my shopping sprees. Is it bad? I would say besides the books and dvds, everything else was necessary. And now with winter coming up, I’ve got my eye on a few coats and a lovely pair of boots from Aerosoles (also for my flat footed handicap!).
What about you? Anyone out there a fan of online shopping, or do you prefer to go to the store? My only complaint is having to wait for my merchandise. If only all websites offered free next day delivery…
