My biggest weakness, I would have to say, is online shopping. There’s nothing easier than booting up your computer, clicking on things you like and placing the order. Websites these days know how to pull you in and make you buy.
With today’s technology, websites are able to track whatever you are looking at. Say I am just browsing the Internet and looking at a certain pair of pumps. Every time I get online those same pumps pop up in my email, YouTube ads — everywhere.
It’s impossible to ignore these beautiful shoes that are haunting you, so of course you give in and buy them. Websites also feature things like “wish lists.” These wish lists let you click on the items you want and save them so that you can come back in a few days (when you get your paycheck) and purchase all of your saved items.
The reason I love to online shop is that there is always different merchandise than what the store has to offer, plus all of the sizes are usually available. Websites these days are so organized and easy to navigate that you can find the exact product you are looking for within minutes.
Why search through a crowded store for hours when you can find what you want in the comfort of your own home? I’m sure there are people who still enjoy the busy shopping mall and the long lines, but for me, online shopping is the way to go.
