It seems that I'm crazy about shopping online since last June. Before that, I'd like to shop in shopping mall. Just because I needed to prepare for my wedding in last June, a lot of things had to be bought, like wedding dress, evening dress, wedding candies and invitations. It's really a hard work to buy so many things in a short time. I'm too lazy to go around a lot of shopping malls and markets to buy these things, then online shops became my first choose. This is the first time for me to shop online, and I found it's wonderful, it doesn't take much time and is much cheaper, what I need to do is just choose my favorite things online, click some buttons and wait for it to come. It's so easy, after that, I'm addicted to shopping online, I almost buy everything I need online, such as clothes, jewel case, ornament, decoration issues and earring. Friends, do you like shopping online? Do you think it's a good way to save time and money?

well am a biggest shopping fan. i just love shopping whether it may be on some streets or may be in some big mall whther it may be manuaally or may it be through online i just love it. i havent done online so much, but i think it requires more hectic things than manually shopping, online shopping takes too long time than manual.so i just prefer going for shopping myself rather than shopping online but many times i shop online nowdays, with my mylot earnings. happy mylotting

Hi Archie0, thank you for your response. But iss it true that shopping online takes more time than shopping online? You have to do makeup, make yourself beautiful, then drive to the shopping mall, walk around and select clothes, try on them and maybe bargin with the seller...LOL...It will take nearly half a day to do all of these things. But shopping online maybe just take 2 to 3 hours, and you don't need to do makeup because you needn't to go outside at all. that's my opinion, maybe your situation is different from mine:)

I do shop online for clothes and football and baseball stuff and that is usually it. If i find some online codes for oldnavy and there are some clearance items on there page i will shop it if i need some new shirts or whatever. I find going around town and not having to pay for shipping is much cheaper and it only takes me about 3 miles to get to Bealls and DDS and even the dollar store, there all in the same little area in town so i do find going out is better sometimes unless I'm online looking for deals.

Yeah, and going outside for shopping is also a kind of exercise actually. People like paying for doing exercise nowadays, but they ignored a lot of free ways for doing exercise:)

Yes I do. There are some great online stores out there. Amazon.com comes to mind. There are some retail stores that have an online component as well, but don't exclusively sell online, that offer a great service too. Not only are the prices from online stores sometimes cheaper but, if shipping and handling costs are reasonable, it can be more cost effective to have items shipped rather than bother to pay a visit to the store. Even if I go directly to the store for a purchase, I find myself visiting the store's website or checking other online stores before making the purchase. I have often canceled a trip to a store because I decided to make an online purchase instead. Cheers.

It's also great for those people who want to skip the crowds during peak shopping times at retail stores, such as Christmas. One of my favorite commercials is one where a guy, who has finished all his Christmas shopping online, drives to a shopping mall parking lot in order to laugh at all the stressed out shoppers racing around looking for presents.
