Top 5 thoughts everyone has while Online Shopping
During the past few months, many of us have resorted to online shopping. Even when we can go out to the store and buy something, it is just so easy to scroll through a website, add things to your cart, and probably never buy them. Our emails are flooded with sales and coupon codes that we just HAVE to use.
Online shopping can be very addicting for some people. Even though it is impersonal and impossible to know if something fits, it is just the convenience of it. You have access to the internet at the touch of your fingertips. Plus, you don’t have to wait in any lines.
Here are the top 5 thoughts everyone has while online shopping.
“Add to cart, add to cart, add to cart.”
Basically you add all of the things that looked interesting to you, then when you’re done, you realize you are, in fact, broke, and cannot afford all of them. so you have to give up the dress you were never going to wear anyway, those designer shoes, and that purse that you already have, but in a different color, and alas, your cart is down to the price you wanted it to be, with items you still hadn’t planned on buying.
“Ugh. I don’t want to pay $5.99 shipping.”
It doesn’t matter how much or how little you spend, you get your items to the perfect price, then shipping and all of these fees are added in and suddenly, that $5, or however, much it is, makes all of the difference in the world and you debate on not getting it. But you’re too lazy to go to the store and the sale is ending tonight, so what the heck, just buy it.
“Well, I am not measuring myself, so let’s pray that it fits.”
Ok, so your waist has to be this number and your chest this number and your stomach this number and then it determines, which size you are. Not too many people just have measuring tapes lying around, so you take the safe bet and either go with your normal size or up one size. You like oversized things anyway. And if it doesn’t fit, you can exchange it, no big deal.
“But it’s on sale, so I HAVE to get it.”
You didn’t need it, nor want it, nor know about it, before it was on sale, but because it is now, you HAVE to have it. It doesn’t matter what it is or that your bank account will be overdrawn if you buy it, the word SALE calls to you and suddenly you are buying three things for the price of one when you shouldn’t even have bought one thing.
“Well, if I spend $40 more, I can get free shipping.”
It doesn’t matter if you were spending $20 and the shipping was $3. If you need $50 more to get free shipping, you are always tempted to spend that extra $50 just so you can save a few bucks. In reality, you’re actually spending more money, but that’s what the stores want you to do. But that just makes sense right? Not pay for shipping and get more items? Right?
