Why I Love Online Shopping

Am I the only one out there who hates shopping?

Come on, you've got to admit, online shopping is far better.

I remember years ago, back in the days when I had no money worries, no bills - apart from paying my parent's board money - I used to love shopping. I had just started a job, I was an apprentice but got paid an OK wage for a sixteen-year-old lad.
I was paid weekly so I gave my board money to my Mum or Dad, got a 20 pound top up for my phone and the rest of my wages were play money.

On the Friday I would head down to town and buy whatever I wanted, whether it was the latest album or a new pair of trainers and a hat to had to my collection.
It was amazing, shopping with no worries at all. 

Then I met Simone...no more treating myself to the finest of things anymore, nope, instead the shopping trips turned into shopping for her to find a new outfit...no wait...I mean new outfits for our nights out over the weekend.

But it wasn't all bad because we had a bit of a Saturday tradition worked out - at the time Simone worked at New Look and I would always go to pick her up in the afternoon after her shift and we would head to one of the little market cafes to grab a spot of lunch.

This is really bringing back some fond memories - I do miss those egg custards.

And then all of this changed too because along came the kids!


Obviously, kids take up a lot of money which means shopping for myself is no longer a priority but they also are a right pain in the backside when you take them shopping -they are almost as bad as me.

I think this having children stage was the point where I began to really hate shopping, myself and Simone used to fall out quite a lot because I would just mope around the shops with a face on hoping she would get the hint that I didn't want to be there and would eventually give in so we could go home.

And it worked too.

But obviously, we have to shop - for food, for clothes, for house things, but anything for an easier life.

Around this time online shopping was starting to blossom and more online market places became available selling anything and everything I could possibly need.

No need to chase Willow out of the supermarket bakery anymore - the food shop can be done from my sofa.


No need to listen to Charlie huffing and puffing, wanting to be anywhere but wandering the shops' ladies jeans section with his Mum - the denim choices can be made from the comfort of our living room

No need for me to have to put my snapback obsession on hold because "they are too expensive and the kids need new shoes" - I can make cheeky bids and pay a whole lot less than I would in a shop.

And this is why the internet and the amazing world of online shopping will win hands down every time for me - easier, cheaper and a lot more hassle free than visiting the shops themselves.

Anything for an easy, stress-free life.
