Online shopping a couple of years back , was no such thing or even if there was , it was too little and for elite class who could just order things on a phone call ;-). As far as I remember , It all started with ‘OLX’. I remember because I also had no idea what it is until I looked it up . So anyways, for a while now there is this whole market online on social media where you can find everything . Like literally everything from casual stuff to the customized ones.. Everything now is a click away as simple as that (also fun 🙂 )
Online shopping is not a necessity we all agree. We could just get up go out and buy the same thing at the same or even lesser price , this is the most common argument between an online shopper and a non-online shopper( I don’t know if its even a word) 😀 . Its a luxury and who doesn’t like luxuries but it only takes a while to become an obsession. You don’t catch it how and when it happens but it does , there is that fine line between turning this beautiful thing from luxury to an obsession. I know it because I am one of ‘those’ 🙄
My first time was when I ordered a set of travelling perfumes which by the way I was not looking for :D. It was so quick and I was so young 😀 when it came the next day I was in awe , it was like a magic to me and I found it fascinating ..Well , did not know it was a trap 😀 Since then I have ordered like everything from makeup to bags to clothes to homemade desserts 😀
And every day I convince myself that I have enough stuff now and now I will not order anything the next day I do :D. And you know what the worst thing is , to even the delivery charges I end up ordering more stuff than I had actually planned of 😀 (you all know what I am talking about ).
But no matter how much I complain and blab about the huge sum of my earnings spent on God bless those online sites. 😀 I know its not going to hold me down. 😀 Even if it lets me broke every month after the 20th , I cannot resist doing window shopping online every night , saving screenshots of my future belongings and dreaming about them till they are in my possession 😀
So I know its hard and its bad and sometimes we doubt ourselves of being sick but well. 😆 Happy Shopping People 😀
