Who has time to hit the malls when you have two small kids? Zane is almost 11 months, Hayley is 3 1/2 years old, I am a dentist, I am a blogger- so where does shopping fit in? Can you relate? As much as I wish I had time to shop in the stores, the reality is my time these days is very limited. After coming home from work, as much as I want to hit up the local mall, it just does not happen. 6 o’clock rolls around on a weekday- dinner time. 8 o’clock rolls around- bath/nighttime routines start. Who wants to go to the mall after all of this? All I want to do is grab my nice glass of wine and watch The Bachelor. I know what you are thinking, “The Bachelor?” That is another discussion.
Anyway, I have discovered a new way to shop-buying products online via online payment systems. There is nothing like sitting down at night and surfing the web for clothes that I need to buy, whether for myself, or my kids via a simple click of my mouse. Clothes are usually what I end up buying online. However, now that I have kids, I buy tons of their toys online as well. Most of the time, I try to research the best sales that online sites are having and bookmark them for later use. Then once, or perhaps, twice a week, I go to my favorite shop online and start shopping!
Some of my favorite stores to shop at online include Amazon, Children’s Place, and Gap. Amazon is my go to online store for everything. I have Amazon Prime so shipping for me is always free. I tend to get anything and everything from a sippy cup to an expensive television at Amazon. Their turnaround time for shipping is 2-3 days and it is truly a fantastic site to use. I also really love shopping for Hayley and Zane’s clothes at the Children’s Place and Gap. Everyday, I get sales from them emailed to my inbox. I usually make sure I hit up these online sales and end up saving substantial money on some adorable clothes that we need. Perhaps we don’t NEED everything I buy, but they are too cute to pass up. I am sure you can relate on this as well!
Why do I shop online? Very simply- it is easy! I can do it in the comfort of my pajamas with my glass of wine, all the while watching The Bachelor. I don’t have to waste a second going into my car and dealing with the horrendous parking. I also don’t have to deal with the traffic inside the mall. How many times, have you seen those aweful lines when that one store was holding that spectacular sale? Chances are you can get that same sale online in your home. If you are worried about shopping online, putting in your credit card and internet payment has never been easier, as well as safer, then it is today.
