Shopping.....you know you love it, well at least some of us do.Whether it be for fun , stress relief, birthday, or holiday we all go shopping.Some may do it more than others.Some may not like it at all and try to avoid it, but at some point do it anyway.

What all do we shop for? Just the basic necessities like food , clothing, and hygeine products? Not in this lifetime, shopping goes far beyond that. In todays society we buy everything from toenail polish to ringtones and everything in between. Look around your house, everything you see was at some time or another bought in a store or online. WOW you have a lot of stuff or maybe I should say WOW you've spent alot of money on stuff. Let me guess , you never really stopped and looked at it like that. Don't stress none of us do.

With today's technology we as consumers , have a choice in how we want to make a purchase.Most of your day to day shopping for things like groceries are done publicly. Some people choose to shop publicly maybe for last minute gifts or maybe they just like to get out of the house.

Consumers are everywhere, they are who makes the world go round. Some consumers prefer shopping online.Consumers who do there shopping online rather than publicly in a store, have much more of an advantage.Online shoppers not only can enjoy being in the comfort of there own home, they can shop in a different store with just a few clicks. Saving gas and time, and with todays constant rush and high gas prices more people are choosing online shopping.

When shopping online you have to be aware of the important things like credit card fraud or identity theft. So make sure you shop in a secure site. If the website you are visiting is not secure your information can be acccessible to anyone who knows how to obtain it. Another thing to remember when making an online purchase make sure you have the right size, color, and quantity of the item you choose.

Shipping your product maybe a little tricky so make sure you read all of the shipping details. Some retailers offer free shipping on orders where as others may charge a shipping fee. Most retailers also offer shipping insurance, so that in the event your purchase gets broken or lost in the mail it can be tracked by mail or replaced. Insurance is usually optional and may cost a little more, but it is a very good thing to have.

No matter where you do your shopping ,whether it be online or at your local department store , just remember the important things and you will have a good shopping experience and most of all....have fun !!
