I have never been grateful for online shopping until now. My preference for shopping is to go to the malls and buy them myself. For one, it’s an excuse to go out of the house, and two, shopping is a good way to bond with friends or family. However, since this COVID happened, I have never gone to a shopping mall at all. What I have been doing lately is shopping online instead.
My reservation for online shopping, let alone just downloading the app on my phone is the temptation that comes with it. When you have the app, for example, all that is left to do for you is to open it. I would say I have more control over myself now but if I could, I don’t want to have anything installed on my devices that will tempt me to spend money especially if it’s unnecessary. You know, needs vs wants.
A New Normal
But again, these times are different. We will always have something we will need and want in our everyday life. I have those moments as well. For instance, are my yarns for my crochet making, I love crocheting and I need yarn to do it. Other items I have been looking for are for my workout sessions. I have shared that from my previous post. Recently, I have bought workout clothes- a few sports bra and leggings/shorts, a pair of dumbbells, and a resistance band.
Luckily we have these platforms online for everybody. It surely does make the transactions easier and more convenient. Of course, there are also disadvantages like the fact that you can’t see or feel the actual product. Other times, you can only guess and hope that what you ordered will fit perfectly to you.
Happy Online Shopper
For now, I’m happy with how I shop but I’m hoping I could go out and shop at the malls freely again soon. Here are some photos of what I bought online.
Getting these yarns made my day. I can continue my crochet and for my upcoming projects, I can’t wait. =)
The next items are for my work out. The pair of dumbells I found is cheaper compared to if I buy it in the store. That is including the delivery fee already. The resistance band, on the other hand, is very resistant, or is that how it should be? =) Maybe, if I use it often, it will loosen a bit. When I exercise, I wear a headband to clear my face so I bought that gray headband as well. And I’ll probably buy more of those again.
Before I end this, I want to clarify that this post is not sponsored. How I wish! Ha! Nor that I am promoting or encouraging you to shop online as well. You do what you feel like doing, that’s it! Hope that’s clear.
