If you’re all about the internet, you just might spend much of your life online. Between work, games, and social media the internet is quickly becoming the main way we communicate with coworkers, friends, and family, and with the advent of Smartphones we can carry out internet access in our pockets. If you’re online most of the time and are having a rough time getting chores like shopping done, maybe it’s time to switch to online shopping for much of what you need to purchase! Here are some tips on what you can shop for online:
Food: we’re no longer restricted to ordering holiday candy to send to grandma. Today you can order dry goods, fresh groceries, and even chocolate dipped strawberries for home delivery. Some local grocers are jumping onboard with this, as are major online retailers. Remember to calculate shipping versus the time and fuel you’d spend on a shopping trip when you’re looking at prices!
Clothing: all the major retailers now have online catalogs, and you can find anything you need from your favorite stores from the comfort of your chair. Look for discount coupons and email sign-up deals to make it more affordable, and you can save a big chunk of change on styles for school and work.
Home accessories: furniture, appliances, bedding, and everything in between can be bought online. Look for clearance deals, outlet stores, and overstocked items for the best deals in the home accessory category.
Home improvement: if you’re planning a big remodeling job you can have all the materials delivered right to your home or job site. Just make sure you clarify the terms of delivery, or you might find a pallet of shingles in your driveway when you expected them to be unloaded in the garage!
Everything in between: restaurant delivery, health care needs, books, and everything in between is now available online. If you’re not sure about a vendor remember to check with the Better Business Bureau to make sure their reputable before you give them your debit or credit card information!
