I like online shopping. Cheaper then offline, I think. I use amazon a lot to shop a lot of different stuffs. From pots and pans to books and DVDs. And even my sewing machine. And I shop some band clothes online too. But only the brand I'm very familiar with and I know they will have the right size for me :) Btw, ebay is another place I shop a lot. Always gets good deal. That's the reason to shop online.

It depends on what kind of products your buying.. if food. Than I obviously well buy it at my local store.. but it its books or movies or games or anything like that.. than I might as well buy it online because its usually cheaper than in the stores.. Its even cheaper if you import it.. heck, most of the things in our country cost twice as much as they would in the US.. thats why I usually import all of my games and things like that. Anyway, I usually use eBay to shop online and I usually just order games or game consoles. simply because their cheaper online and I can actually find most of the things I'm interested in. But I also recently ordered something for two of my friends. One wanted a new Flash memory while the other one wanted some kind of lamp or so. I'm still waiting for those things.. it seems like the post office would be awfully slow during the winter.. even the things that I usually receive withing a week or two hasn't arrived withing the last month..

For books and little things online is fine. When it comes to bigger things/expensive things and clothing I prefer to do that offline. If you buy stuff online and it's not like you hoped/wanted then it can be a pain to exchange it. Some places also don't offer returns on online orders so you've essentially thrown away your money in that case. That's something I can not affod to do.

By the way, there are products that are fine with me if I buy them online such as books . Things that I do not need to try on. I think grocery items like food is okay too.

OFFLINE. nothing beats the old way of doing things for me. And when it comes to clothes it's important for me to get a "feel" for that particular clothing just to make sure it fits well and it feels good to wear.
