Nobody ever walked into a store and walked out with a gazebo and a tiger onesie. But thanks to eclectic marketplaces, it’s perfectly acceptable to sit down after a glass or two of your favorite beverage and ponder what your living room would look like with a zebra print wall rug. Even better, nobody need ever witness you making these embarrassing purchases.
Refunds are your friend. Why not buy four dresses, try them on in the comfort of your own home and send back the ones that don’t fit? Yes, you can try on several dresses in-store, too, but no one will rush you at home and there will be no more split-second changing room decisions or a trip to town to take back the rejects.
Forgot a cousin’s birthday? No worries. Simply have a quick look online, make your purchase and get your gift delivered next day. Include a little notecard and you’ll look like the most organised relative on the planet.
Afraid all your neighbours will laugh at your carrier bag? Well then, just book online. Most likely, your goods will be delivered in a secretive brown box.
You head to the store, see a toaster you’ve been dying to buy, but suddenly realize there aren’t pages and pages of reviews stuck onto the shelf. How will you know if the toast toasts on both sides? What if the spring thing jams? Buying online means you can read millions of reviews, ensuring the toaster of your dreams wings its way to you speedily.
Rather than traipse from one end of the high street to the other, shopping online means you can hunt for the cheapest deals without leaving the comfort of home. It might take a little longer online, but you’ll be able to purchase your item happy in the knowledge you paid the best price.
If it’s Wednesday evening and you suddenly realize there’s just enough in the cupboard for some beans on toast, don’t panic. Eat the beans, and then order a next-morning online delivery. By 8 am the next day, your shelves will be full and beans will be off the menu. Get a shop delivered weekly and you’ll never run out of food again.
