Gone are the days when we had to take a leave or wait for the weekend to do the shopping. The ‘in’ thing is the stay-at-home shopping. Online shopping means you can go ‘buy buy’ within the very comfortable environs of your home or your office and say bye-bye to the hustle and bustle of traffic, parking slot, queue system etc. you have the added advantage of staying at your home in your night dress and watching TV while doing the shopping. The trend is fast catching up with the young and old alike. And why not, when you can save on petrol bills and parking charges, taxi fare or whatever mode of transport you otherwise depend.
However, like any coin, this one also doesn’t come with the other side. When you have several advantages of on line shopping, it can also leave huge dent in your bank balance if you are a little relaxed about the whole afire of staying at home. the leisure at home may leave you a little sluggish to watch before you click the mouse button. Yes, don’t forget with just a click you have it purchased and the bill is made. Secondly, you don’t get to have a firsthand look at the commodity you want to purchase. The picture or images or whatever you view are there for promotion and to keep the hype among the shoppers. Perhaps the most crucial drawback of such a system could be nothing but the fact that you stay at home. a weekend at a mall or market maybe the little time you or more importantly your children may get to unwind and feel free of other tensions and mingle with people out there.
In any case, don’t be surprised if we have less people crowding to malls and market squares.
