I don’t know if you do this, but whenever Chris and I go shopping we always try to find the best deal. Especially if it’s a costly item. Whether you’re living from paycheck to paycheck or have a fat savings account it just makes sense to make your money go as far as it can, doesn’t it?
I have to admit that most of the purchases that my husband and I make are in grocery stores, pet stores and retail stores. We have increased our online shopping over the last couple of years, but the majority of our spending is done in person.
One of the reasons that we’ve started to increase our online shopping is because it’s convenient. Heck, I can shop in my PJ’s at 1 a.m. if I want! I suppose I could head out to the local 24 hour Walmart and do the same, but I think I’d end up more than a little embarrassed.
Other than convenience, I like shopping online because I can often find better prices at online stores. Let’s face it, online stores don’t have the overhead that retail stores do so they can afford to offer items at lower prices.
Sounds good doesn’t it?
