It has been a while since i have been able to go out to a shop as i have been stuck indoors, so all the things that i have wanted to buy have either been bought off the internet or i have had to ask a friend to get the things i want as i have been unable to go and get them.Well today has been great as a friend drove me to a shop that i have wanted to go to for sometime and it was great even though i am in pain now.The things that you get whilst you are out shopping rather than just looking on the internet is great.

My aughter and I went shopping today and we had a good day. I bought some shirts and she got her bathing suit. I will get mine next week. She will get another one as well. I am glad you got to go to the store. I know I like to shop online as well. But,we also like going to a store sometimes.

I think that sometimes shopping on the internet you do not get to see the things let alone get to try the things on,so there are times that you have to return them.Where as when you are in a shop you get to see other items aswell as get to try the things on.I got loads of things today that i would not have even seen on the internet unless i was looking for them.

Yes to shop outside is more exciting than to shop online, it is because you will immidiately receive and try what you bought compare to shop online that you are going to wait for days.

Hi jugs, it's really a great pleasure to do the offline shopping after staying long at home. Might be we wouldn't feel the pain severely if concentrating on doing other stuffs. Moreover it's nice as well to have friend chatting with you while shopping. I hope you will get recovered very soon dear. I rarely shop online. I like touching it and having a close look at the stuff before purchasing There are lots of shops selling various stuffs several hypermarket around here. Therefore it's quite convenient for me to shop at any of them. I could hardly tolerate to wait some days for the stuff I have purchased to reach my house. Take care and happy posting

I am glad your shopping trip went well. I have a physical problem also, so I don't go out much. Somethings just aren't worth the effort. It is always nice to get out of the house for awhile, and feel "normal". Since you are in pain now, I take it you didn't use the wheelchair you were talking about.

I am glad you were able to get out and get a little shopping done. It was very nice of your friend to take you along.I know sometimes I just have to get out of the house for a little while or I will go nuts. I went out without my kids for a few hours last night for the first time in a LONG time.

I shop therefore I am! I have been lucky . when I Finally found what I needed, I had the money to get right then and there. But I do remember when I would search out an item and write down how much it was and then go back and get it later. Even that was fun. I hope you were successful and that you will feel better real soon.

Glad you got out and had a chance to enjoy yourself. Nobody should have to be a shut-in.

I am glad that i went out as last night when i was in alot of pain i nearly cancelled going out today,but i know that my friend would not be happy as i think that she was doing me a favor as that is the kind of friend she is.We had such fun and got the chance to chat aswell which was great.The pain i am in was still worth going out.

I know what you are saying and there is nothing worse than trying to go to a shop in a wheel chair is there, as noone moves out of the way and when it comes to things that you want and they are on a high shelf you have to ask a person to get them for you.Thought you were going to get some of those bead things that you can put on the spokes of the wheel chair wheels so that they can hear you and then they move out of the way.

Hi Jugs, it is more fun to shopping off line than online. we can see the stuffs and compare it one each other. i often see the shopping online just for comparing the price and see some various stuff.

It’s different in our place Jugs. Malls, groceries and shopping centers are just so convenient to go to via public utility vehicles. Here in our country, we are used to buying our stuff directly from the store than ordering it via internet or asking friends to do it for us. I hope the pain you felt from shopping is gone now. At least you’re able to give yourself a time and a break to go out and stroll in the mall or shopping center and buy all the things that you need.

I know how you feel. Even the pain is ok and the trip worth it by getting out of the house.

There is a website I found which is an online grocery store that carries non-perishable everyday items. It's alice.com Don't know if they have anything like that in the Uk. it is free shipping too

Hi jugsjugs, yeah you can forget your pain when you go out for a shopping or just for a walk also. Talking / chating with others you will be relaxed for a while.

i prefer proper shopping to internet shopping. I work in the retail industry and a lot of our customers come into our shop to see what something compares to how it appears on our online store onscreen.

Yes, it is great to go out and buy your own stuff rather than to look at stuff over the internet. I think its better because you can actually see the item first hand and are able to inspect and touch it to make sure its okay. Then you are able to buy the item. Plus it is a bonus to be able to go outside and get some fresh air.

It seems great to do shopping on the Internet as it is time consuming I suppose and also very flexible to do, however I like to go out to shop because I am sure I can find many things on the way out apart from what I am supposed to buy.

Hi Jugs, I think it is just horrible to stay a long time in front of the computor. Now I am really tired of this and try to figure out any chance that I do not need to look at the screen. However it seems impossible in my life. I need to work at least 8 hours with the staring at the screen. My eyes are the main victim on that. I think going out no matter for shopping or just walking would be better for health. You could create suck kind of chance by yourself.
